In the "Suits" episode "All In," the never-losing Harvey (Gabriel Macht) fans remember from Season 1 returns to his winning streak. Unfortunately, everyone around him seems to begin a new losing streak.
Keith (Peter Outerbridge) is Harvey's new client. He is a very unlucky client with two vices that don't mix well: drinking and gambling. He gets fall-over drunk, then puts up his entire multi-million dollar company as collateral on a napkin for a hand he "can't lose." Then he loses.
Harvey's job is to step in and fix the mess. Unfortunately, the opposing counsel is dealt a much better hand. Harvey is dealt a nearly impossible hand. So what does he do? He "plays the man" in a round of poker.
Harvey decides to test his luck by betting the case in poker. Fortunately for Keith, Harvey wins. It's a very risky move, but Harvey uses his tactic of emotional trickery against the opposing counsel to basically scare them into losing. Needless to say, Jessica (Gina Torres) is not happy about Harvey's "out of control" style of winning the case.
Karma comes back to bite Jessica when she finds that the judge presiding over Pearson Hardman's fraud case is purposely making life difficult for her because of an law school prank. Jessica is an awesomely fierce woman, but she can also be mean and conniving.
The judge decides to recuse herself once Jessica admits to intentionally destroying the judge's chances to land a job they both wanted. Jessica not only admits to pranking the judge out of the job, but to not being sorry about it. Jessica also adds that she would do it again if she had the chance.
Mike (Patrick J. Adams) notices that Rachel (Meghan Markle) is holding Louis' (Rick Hoffman) Dictaphone. He decides to play back some of Louis' recordings in order to "see inside the mind" of the incredibly odd Louis. It's hilarious. Until it's not. Mike plays the next recording, and it turns out to be the conversation Mike had with Harvey after Louis hid his Dictaphone in Harvey's office.
Mike brings the proof to Harvey. Harvey is furious because it proves that Louis was the one who told Hardman what was going on. Harvey confronts Louis with the proof with a calm, but downright frightening demeanor. Louis seems to get the point, Never cross Harvey Specter.
