- The equity partners continue to fight over Will's spot.
- Diane starts to juggle two men, Jack the process server and a returning Kurt McVeigh, who she surprises in the middle of the night.
- Alicia also makes a peace offering to Kalinda, telling her they can maybe be friends again but all cards must be on the table. Kalinda agrees, but the episode ends with a hesitant look on her face, likely related to her tax issue.
