There is a ton of drama swarming the offices of Pearson/Darby, and yet Rachel and Donna still find a way to mend their relationship. Last week was a tough one for Rachonna, they had their first real argument and it made for an awkward episode. Thankfully, the two forgive each other, and Rachonna is back in full force. It’s a good thing the girls are back together, because the boys are super busy, especially when Ava Huffington returns for some ‘unfinished business’.
Ava and Harvey go out for lunch (was that The Thompson Hotel?)…Ava offers Harvey a job, she wants him to work for her. Obviously, Harvey has other plans…like finishing his lunch…but that doesn’t work out either because Cameron Moustache Dennis shows up and arrests Ava! Apparently, they are arresting Ava for murder…they think she hired some people to kill a bunch of other people. Harvey is back to work, saving Ava from going to jail. At the hearing, Harvey asks the judge for bail, Cameron doesn’t want to give Ava the option of bail, but Harvey wins this round by accusing Cameron of personally choosing this case as a vendetta against Harvey.
There’s a new man in town, Steven Huntley is visiting the offices from London town, he makes an impressive entrance, but is even more impressed with a certain red head.
Steven makes a good first impression on Donna…well sort of. He asks Harvey how he works with that bombshell outside of his office, and Harvey replies by telling Steven she can hear everything they’re saying. Turns out Steven is here to assist Harvey in the take down of Jessica Pearson. One problem, Harvey doesn’t trust Steven and refuses to work with him.
At lunch, Harvey and Steven are interrupted by a determined Cameron who presents Harvey with some new findings. He says he has witnesses who place Ava’s hired men at the scene of the crime. Harvey and Mike are back at work to figure out what they’re going to do. Ava’s obsessed with trying to find out if Harvey thinks she’s innocent or guilty.
Katrina the crazy is back in the game…settings things in motion. She wants to get in on the Hessington case but when Mike refuses her, she tries to apologize. When she mentions his relationship with someone in the office…he immediately says Rachel’s name. Katrina smiles and points out how funny it is that Mike immediately assumed she was talking about Rachel. Mike explains the Katrina situation to Rachel…and Rachel gets all emotional and asks if she’s Mike’s girlfriend. He gets down on one knee and asks her the old fashioned way.
Their lovey dovey moment is interrupted by a video that’s sent throughout the office. It’s a video making fun of Mike, showing Harvey giving birth to Mike? It was really weird, but it’s Katrina’s way of getting her revenge. Mike wants to get her back, but Harvey stops him in his tracks and reminds Mike they need to figure out the Ava case. But, Harvey can’t contain himself so he decides to tell Katrina off himself.
When Mike and Harvey visit Ava at her apartment, she tells them they need to resort to plan a..which is bribing the witnesses. Harvey refuses to do something illegal just to get her out of this lawsuit…but she’s done with Harvey so she fires him.
The next day Ava meets with Steven Huntley, Harvey freaks out that this guy has taken his client from him. When he confronts Steven about Ava, Steven tells Harvey that he advised Ava not to bribe anyone as it is probably a set up from Cameron. Looks like Harvey is surprised with Steven’s good advice.
Harvey and Mike figure out a way to ‘bribe’ the witnesses without it being illegal. If they sue Ava with proper documentation, she can basically pay them off…the whole transaction being completely legal. Yay!
In the end, Katrina gets what she asked for. Louis agrees to bring her on as his assosciate…and it looks like they’re going to do some damage together. Mike finishes up the paperwork with Ava, she asks him one last time if Harvey thinks she’s guilty. He replies by telling her he doesn’t feel it’s his place to tell her…and he doesn’t feel comfortable telling her what he thinks of the case. Harvey and Mike discuss business, Mike tells Harvey he knows Ava is probably guilty. Harvey doesn’t say anything which means he agrees. They have a few drinks, and Harvey tells Mike of his secret plans to take Jessica down.
Donna and Steven have a little moment outside. As Donna’s leaving work, which is a rare thing for us to see. Steven rolls up in a vintage sports car…he tries to charm Donna, but Donna isn’t impressed that easily. He tells her what if he had MacBeth tickets…she tells him she’s already scene the play…he tells her she’s never seen it with him…in the front row…with Daniel Day Lewis. He drives off, leaving her alone on the street…she realizes she’s in trouble because she’s actually impressed. Woo! Donna has a love interest! Harvey’s gonna get jealous!!
