Mike (Patrick J. Adams) felt powerless as the housing case he was overseeing at the legal clinic started to unravel on the latest episode of Suits.
The cheque he gave to Sofia (Marla McLean) to pay her rent was never cashed as she had to rush her son into hospital. In a bid to stop her being evicted Mike filed a lawsuit against the building owner’s claiming they were forcing out all of the tenants so they could demolish the building without having informed them.
Following Oliver’s (Jordan Johnson-Hinds) poor performance in court, Mike decided to assign first chair to Marissa (Athena Karkanis) when Sofia refused to accept a settlement payment with the housing company. Worried about the medical bills of her son, Sofia wanted to push for more money meaning the case had to go to trial.
Marissa backed out of the case due to her father’s ill health and Mike’s pleas to Nathan (Peter Cambor) fell on deaf ears leaving him with no choice but Oliver. In court Oliver once again became flustered when surprised by inadmissible evidence but he didn’t get it thrown out. Mike tried to object and the court told him to keep quiet before ruling against Sofia.
Meanwhile Harvey (Gabriel Macht) was backed into a corner when Louis (Rick Hoffman) asked for his help getting Rachel (Meghan Markle) an interview for the bar. They found her interview was rejected so that one of the bar members could blackmail Harvey into illegally taking on one of his competitors in exchange for Rachel passing the bar.
Harvey appealed to Mike for help and told him that he could ensure he also passed the bar and could legally practice law. Mike turned the offer down but after his own case went south, he changed his mind and agreed to help.
Elsewhere in the episode Donna (Sarah Rafferty) was given a gadget that could interact with her using all of her Donnaisms and Louis realised he didn’t know Tara (Carly Pope) as well as he thought ahead of her first baby scan.
The next episode of the season is Admission of Guilt. Harvey and Mike partner on a class action. Louis needs Rachel’s help impressing a client.
