It's the day before the election and Zach is out at an early voting station when becomes suspicious of an unsealed ballot box. Alicia goes before Judge Abernathy on the issue and come up against Patti Niholm representing Peter's opponent, Mike Cristiva. Diane and Will and several others are soon on the case but when they count the ballots, the total is very much in Peter's favor. It all comes to an abrupt halt when a third party candidate challenges the entire election in Federal Court. Once that is out the way all the lawyers are scrambling to get a favorable decision from Judge Abernathy. Meanwhile, Cary and the other fourth year associates have found some ideal office space but to meet the price, he may have to withdraw his offer to Kalinda. It turns out the building is owned by Colin Sweeney and he has an interesting offer for them that includes his $22 million per year in legal services. Written by

The rent discussed is purportedly $60/square foot, which is in line with Chicago Loop market rates. A 20 percent discount for free legal work would only bring that down to $48/square foot, which if calculated against $22 million in revenue per year for two years requires a lease-able footprint of 3.6 million square feet to break even - a highly unrealistic footprint for a law firm.
