At his appeal, Jimmy speaks extemporaneously about how he wants to bring credit to the McGill name if he’s allowed to practice law again. His appeal succeeds, and even Kim believes him, but he reveals it was a con, and his declaration that won’t practice under his own name stuns her.

Kim enlists S&C employees in Huell’s defense and indicates she’ll bury Suzanne in paperwork. Jimmy takes a bus ride, writes supportive mail for Huell, and enlists passengers to help.
