The episode begins with Leo on the phone, describing the way Kate’s boat blew up the previous night. And our darling Kate has to sleep at the office. Leo tells her that Justin called and that he would be at the office in 20 minutes. She thinks that he is coming to boast about his extra marital conquest; but Leo tells her that Justin wanted a mediator and hence the visit. Ben is carrying a new lamp to the office, and it breaks. Just then he meets Justin. After a quick introduction, he goes in to meet Kate. Kate is still getting dressed and he helps her zip up her dress. He tells her that he got a call from the FBI the last night. Two agents would be escorting a person, due for medical surgery and Justin had set up the meeting. He tells her that wanted to negotiate a liability waiver for the surgery. Allison is representing the hospital. She tells him that she would take the case for Allison.
She is still upset with what Justin did and he apologizes. He tells her that it was just one night that he slipped. But she is still upset. Allison enters the room and notices the tension in the air. Allison tells her about the case. She tells her that its some “John Doe” VIP, who wants the hospital to cover the liability exposure and that’s how much she can reveal at the moment for national security reasons. Next, they go to meet the two FBI agents. Meanwhile, Lauren is talking to Ian, an established fashion designer, who runs a firm, and he wants her to take up his case. One of his former employees, Jenny Chang, back-stabbed him and set up a new shop; stealing 14 of his employees. He tells her that Jenny quit a year ago and then last week she set up her shop. He wants her punished as it is very embarrassing.
Lauren assures him that once she opens a stern letter on Reed and Reed, they would collect damages and will have her apologize publicly. But he tells her that the opposing counsel is Ben Grogan and that when he signed the partnership with Reed and Reed, he brought in all his clients with him. Jenny Chang was his client. She tells him that she will talk to Ben and try to convince him. Next, Kate tells the FBI agents that they need to give her some information, if something needs to be worked out. But they don’t disclose anything. As she walks out of the office building, she sees a man arguing with Allison. Kate knows that it is about the case, and she wants Allison to talk her about it. But she doesn’t. Next, Lauren meets Ben and Jenny Chang. He tells Lauren that they are filing suit against Ian Saunders. He tells Lauren that Jenny had done whatever se did as her hobby; an expensive one maybe; and abiding by the non-compete clause, she set up her items for sale after 367 days after she left.
Next, Kate meets with the doctor who is supposed to do the surgery, Ted Laventhol . Kate then meets the guy who she saw arguing with Allison, Jessie. He tells Kate that his wife, Roxy is dying because of some liver disease and that they wanted to do a transplant. After waiting for two and a half years, last night, the hospital calls them and tells them that they found a match. They checked in but the next morning the hospital tells them that its not going to happen. Jessie is upset. His wife got the liver disease after having his initials tattooed on her wrist and the needless weren’t sterilized. Kate talks to Laventhol. He tells her that the donor organ is going to go to another patient. He tells her that the ‘powerful’ patient can be stable for another year without the transplant but Roxy doesn’t have that kind of time.
The doctor tells Kate that whatever the resolution is, needs to be done quickly as the liver is viable for the next 5 hours. She sees Agent Hughes, standing outside the room. She calls him and asks him to meet her and Allison at the cafeteria. He leaves for the cafeteria. She sneaks into the VIP’s room. She meets him and tells him that there is a young woman who needs the organ more than he does. He says something, and as she bends forward to hear him clearly, he grabs her neck. We see that he is handcuffed. Just then Agents Donovan and Hughes rush into the room. Kate tells Hughes that she knows that the VIP is a prisoner and she wants to know what the deal was. Donovan asks her to steer clear from the FBI business. Meanwhile, Ian is at the office and Lauren has a suggestion that Reed and Reed can represent both parties; but only if Ian agrees. But Ben disagrees.
Lauren calls Kate and tells her that she has a problem with Ben. Kate tells her that she will talk to Ben. Meanwhile, Ben is making Leo runs errands for him and Leo doesn’t appreciate this. Kate tells Justin that he needs to do something, as Roxy played by the rules and now she is about to lose her life. Kate tells Ben that Ian has been their client for 15 years and was a good friend of her dad. They don’t want to lose him. Ben tries to explain that Ian’s numbers having been dropping but Jenny is warming up. Reed and Reed require income producing clients and so taking Jenny’s case is more beneficial for the firm. Just then Jessie calls Kate telling her that the hospital is discharging Roxy and he needs help. Justin meets the FBI agents. The agents tell him that Moto, worked with the mob and could help the FBI to give them information about the arm dealers in New York.
He is ready to testify; but for a price. Justin says that it is not a great idea to keep a bad guy alive and sacrifice the life of an innocent citizen. Donovan tells him that Moto’s testimony can save a lot of lives. They leave. Kate arrives at the hospital and tells Allison to keep Roxy for the night. Allison agrees. She also tells Kate about the generous donation Jessie made to the hospital. Kate is shocked to hear this. She confronts the couple about this. Just then Justin calls and tells Kate that it is over. Kate reaches the office and arranges a meeting, where all three partners of the firm could sit together and arrive at a decision about Ian’s case. Kate agrees with Ben’s decision and Lauren is upset about it. Kate is discussing Roxy’s case with Leo. Leo asks her to take a stand. And she stands by Roxy. The duo dig deeper into Moto’s history, and find out that he has one charge that is outstanding. Kate tells Justin that Moto is still a wanted man in California.
Justin makes arrangements and walks into the hospital with two cops. He tells the FBI agents that Moto is still a wanted man and so he needs to be transported. Moto is arrested and it would be until next day if the warrant has to be washed off. Till then the organ goes to the next patient on the list. Next, Lauren meets Ian and tells him that it is the best for both of them to part ways. Ian is furious and tells Lauren that he will see her in court. Meanwhile they are transporting Moto, and the agents will have to do a lot of explain as Moto wouldn’t testify now. But our brilliant Kate gets to what she does the best; and strikes a deal with Moto and he is ready to testify!!
Roxy is taken into the operation theater. Finally her wait is over. Justin wants to make a fresh start; and Kate has signed the divorce papers! Kate meets Lauren to give her the boat’s insurance papers. Lauren tells her that she could stay over at her place instead of checking into a hotel. Kate agrees. Staying under the same roof; they would definitely “set the house on fire”. The episode ends. Share this article with your friends
