Harvey tells Mike that Jessica had turned down their arrangement with Tom and that bankruptcy should be the answer. Harvey is not ok with the reality that he is required to follow orders from Jessica and even Paul when there is an obvious solution to the dilemma. Harvey tells Mike that he should also do the right thing in his conflict with Rachel. Harvey and Mike meet with both Paul and Tom in the conference room to tell Tom about the deal. Harvey tells Tom that they were able to renegotiate the terms of the loan, and his installments would be further delayed. Harvey makes it clear that the choice means no bankruptcy nor foreclosure. Paul is unpleased, and after Tom says that he will never forget what Harvey has done, he echoes the same phrase, with a much darker sentiment.
Harvey meets with Jessica at the building’s rooftop, and she explains that she feels betrayed by Harvey’s actions. Harvey says that notwithstanding the circumstances he has designed with the bankruptcy department, it will be great for her and the real estate department. She explains that she doesn’t have an objection with real estate, but it was Harvey they disliked. She can’t understand why Harvey would put himself in front of her and that Harvey just doesn’t care. Jessica now feels betrayed and abandoned in her power struggle with Hardman.
Mike meets up with Rachel at a hotdog stand to break up with her. Rachel is confused. Mike tells her of Colin McCarthy; a first-year associate Rachel used to date but when they broke up Colin’s whole prospects just went down the drain and he eventually got fired. Mike says that he will somehow screw up their relationship and have the same fate as Colin. Rachel can tell Mike is lying, but comes to the conclusion that he thinks she is not good enough for him. She tells him as much and storms off.
