The third season opens with a shift in the dynamics at the firm. After merging with a top British firm, Harvey is at odds with his boss and mentor, Jessica Pearson, who forces Mike to do something he never thought possible – betray Harvey. Meanwhile, things with Mike and Rachel Zane get more complicated after Mike finally reveals his secret that he never actually went to Harvard – and they cross a dangerous line that can never be uncrossed.
There really isn't anything new under the sun, as last season's "Rewind" taught us. The mentee always wants to become the mentor, and the assumption of that role always comes at a very steep and potentially life-changing cost.
