'Suits' recap: Who Mocks the Mock Trial
But Mike isn't convinced that will work at a real trial, since Tanner isn't about to do what Louis did. So he's hard at work digging through Tanner's old cases to find something to use against him. Hardman, who's been pushing for a settlement all along, volunteers to help. Sure enough, Tanner ends up bringing a settlement deal that lets Harvey off the hook, thanks to something Hardman found and "leveraged." Harvey and Jessica remain suspicious of Hardman's motives, especially now that he's essentially blackmailed the opposing counsel, but Mike argues that Harvey should take the deal. When it comes to a vote of the partners, it's split down the middle. Harvey, the swing vote, decides to settle. But no sooner is that decided than Hardman calls for another vote: one on whether the firm is going to be run by Jessica or himself. Well, look who turned out to be the bad guy after all. Jessica had better hope Harvey will be the swing vote on this one, too.
