** Later in the season, Mike [[spoiler: is finally exposed and immediately arrested for fraud. The entire firm is now in the crosshairs with massive investigations and threats of disbarrment. They also find that any prospective new hire won't work for a firm mired in such a scandal. Mike ends up going to jail after agreeing to a plea deal, unaware the jury would have found him not guilty. Finally, Jessica and Harvey mistakenly believe their employees will stay with them out of loyalty. Instead, once the no-compete clause in the firm's contract is voided, ''every'' lawyer, paralegal, assistant and secretary leaves rather than be tainted working for a firm that knowingly hired a fake lawyer.]]

** In an attempt to boost the firm up following [[spoiler: Mike's arrest]] Jessica decides to open their hiring up to 20 schools besides Harvard, expecting more applicants. Instead, Louis has to break it to her that [[spoiler: ''not one single graduate'' from ''any'' of those schools is interested in working for a firm engaged in massive fraud.

Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodGenetics: Played for laughs when Louis' sister drops by, played the gorgeous Amy Acker so of course, no one can believe the two are related. What's funnier is Louis is under the impression that "slap a wig on me and we could be twins" and doesn't seem to realize how different they are.

Added DiffLines:

** It turns out Benjamin has known from the start Mike wasn't a lawyer for a unique reason: Mike was the only "Harvard grad" who didn't boast about it all the time around Benjamin and make himself look more important.

Added DiffLines:

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Several of the characters show this with Mike clearly not realizing the full implications and challenges of being a fake lawyer until it's too late while Harvey can be cocky enough to fail to see a few angles on a case. Louis can be the worst, leaping into situations to either make himself a fool or get the firm into major trouble.
** When Louis [[spoiler: finally figures out the truth about Mike]] he uses the information to force Jessica to make him name partner. Louis immediately tries to fire Mike, thinking he has all the cards. Instead, Jessica points out that [[spoiler: by using the information to get his job back, Louis automatically became part of the fraud (and, in fact, worse as he's directly profiting off it) and thus if he exposes Mike, he'll go down as well.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: Louis meets with Donna at the office, down after [[spoiler: being fired from the firm]], the two having a friendly chat as Louis talks about his experience, including a "key" that is rewarded to those who graduate Harvard. He then off-hand mentions how when he was talking about the key, [[spoiler: Mike had no idea what he was talking about. Donna's eyes widen as Louis suddenly gets cold and angry as this is the final piece to have Louis finally figure out Mike never went to law school and Donna, Harvey and Jessica have all been covering for him.]]
