Harvey once and for all proves what kind of lawyer he is when he is forced to retry all 37 of his past cases, tying the entire series up and putting a nice bow on it. Until we realize that there is one former client left out there -– Nitron -– who has been released and is wrecking havoc on the city. Will Harvey be able to save the day -– or does he die, like the title so clearly suggests? Will the Incredible Hippo return to help the Birdteam? And X, does he finally obtain the crest? Final answers will be revealed in this special double episode. Oh, and a certain bus makes a mysterious reappearance…
Harvey suffers a mental breakdown in court, leading to the loss of a juror. At the same time, he’s summoned to serve as a juror. On the same trial. But problem solved when Duplicator creates a 2nd Harvey to perform his civic duty.. Can two Harveys win over a jury, when it’s relatively clear that just one Harvey who tries really, really hard barely makes any substantial impact whatsoever? Meanwhile, Potamus claims sexual harassment at the hands of Judy Ken Sebben. Emotionally scarred, he finds comfort in support groups and hot interns.
Following the untimely death of Phil Ken Sebben, Harvey steps up to run the law firm. As in most fraudulent presidencies, approval ratings are naturally in the toilet. So, armed with standard office supplies like staplers, manila envelopes and an occasional hand grenade, Sebben & Sebben employees form a massive uprising... until Phil returns from the dead! Or does he? And somebody gets kidnapped. Thus the title.
Two heroes will fall and one, in Speedos, will rise out of a hot tub filled with cash. Actually, another hero will rise too, in a Baby Bjorn, deftly worn by Reducto. And then fall. Too many falls and rises to keep track of. Oh, and two main characters will die.
