Mike barely wins a Harvard trivia contest, his prize being his first solo probono case dealing in housing court. He bombs during his first hearing to an experienced attorney, but quickly turns the case around with help from both Rachel and Harvey, allowing him to succeed against the landlord and his attorney.
Harvey grudgingly takes on a pharmaceutical case dealing with a drug for ALS at Jessica’s behest. The client happens to be Jessica’s ex-husband, leading to some new insights into her past. When Harvey fails to make significant progress, Jessica assigns herself onto the case to help Harvey move it forward, much to their joint success.
