Meanwhile, Officer Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty) and Officer Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati), try to forget the shooting that had happened to Burgess while trying to look for the missing young son in Voight’s case. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode picked up where the previous episode left off, with Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) in Detective Jay Halstead’s (Jesse Lee Soffer) apartment, as they had spent the night together. Erin then informed Jay that the Task Force was going to Brazil and that she was going undercover in a cartel for a while. However, they were interrupted as Jay got called into work.


At the scene, Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), Detective Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas), Officer Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins), Jay, and Officer Adam Ruzek (John Patrick Flueger) arrived on the scene. They discovered that Officer Bob Ruzek (Jack Coleman), Ruzek’s father, was the “first responder” on the scene. A mother, Lucy Denton, and her daughter, Shelby Denton, had been shot with the father’s gun, which was missing from its case. Jordan, the eight-year-old son was missing. It seemed like someone knew what code to enter in the security alarm in order, not to have raised an alarm. The father, Wes Denton (Alex Manette), was currently missing. However, much to Ruzek’s surprise, his father did not really answer politely back to Voight.

After looking around the house, they discovered, thanks to a child’s bloody handprint on the laundry machine, that Jordan was still alive and the injured.

They then went to the father’s car and discovered that he had a lot of clothes in his car. At interrogation, after bringing him in, Wes revealed that he had been taking freelance jobs “installing computer systems at night” and didn’t charge his phone. It had been a “three-hour drive from Fort Wayne” and claimed that he was innocent.

The next morning, all of the patrolmen split up in order to look for Jordan. However, Officer Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty) would not allow his partner, Officer Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati). He had just recovered from being shot a while back, to be alone.

At the Task Force, Erin was surprised that her boss was in Washington because no one had told her so. It turned out that he had gone to Washington to sort out a situation. It turned out that the FBI were also working the Zapata Cartel case so they were told to stand by for further instructions.

Back at the precinct, Wes “tested negatively for gunshot residue.” It turned out that Lucy was an investigative journalist and made her living by exposing other people’s lives. Bob then came to the precinct, where he was greeted and called “Disco Bob” by Sergeant Trudy Platt (Amy Morton). He then asked for Voight and told him that he had noticed a bystander named Alexander Gage (Peter Reinemann) lurking around the Denton house. He also warned Voight that if he ever led his son a “bad road,” he would “break his jaw.”

At Gage’s apartment, they found out that he had been stalking the Denton. It turned out that she expose had ruined him. He wanted to get revenge by telling her husband that she had been cheating on him with a lawyer and private investigator. However, it turned out that she only met up with that guy when her husband wasn’t there. It was because he did not want him to know that she was filing for bankruptcy.

Erin then paid them a visit and told Jay that she might be in Brazil for more than six months. They then both agreed to keep “an open mind” with regards to their relationship.

Meanwhile, Burgess hesitated before knocking on a door during their search for Jordan. Thanks to Shelby Denton’s former best friend, they tracked down the ex-boyfriend, Owen Reese (Matt Pratt). He told them that he and Shelby used to be followed by Jordan to a foreclosed house that they often went to. There, they found Jordan, who had a gunshot wound in his shoulder. He was then rushed to the hospital, where he was wheeled into surgery.


Back at the precinct, they decided to arrest Wes after learning that Wes was still paying the premium on the life insurance of Lucy and Shelby. It would leave him with a considerable amount if they had died. However, he denied that he had anything to do with it, and told them that Lucy must have continued paying it. However, Voight refused to let him see Jordan, who was at the hospital.

Before that, earlier that night, Ruzek learned from Olinsky that years ago, when Voight was still dirty, his father had accused Voight of being a dirty cop. Voight, who also had had some drinks at that time, called him a “dog cop.” However, Olinsky told him that he did not see any reason why Ruzek should be ashamed of his dad. He was still in uniform, as “everyone chips in different,” and said that that incident was regrettable.

Afterward, they learned that the Denton did a lot of volunteer work, including a kitchen that hired ex-convicts, where Wes could easily hire any one of them to do the job. After getting all the pictures of ex-con employees from the kitchen manager, Jordan was able to identify the man who had chased and shot him as Frank Carriger. After chasing him down, they learned that Owen Reese had hired him to do the job. He had said that there would be a lot of jewelry and cash. When he didn’t find it, he woke Shelby and her mother up, and “gave them a choice.”

In the other interrogation room, they learned from Owen that he and Shelby had met in the kitchen and that her mother did not like him. So, he had hired Frank to steal from them so that they would get a little bit “scared.” He had no idea that it would have ended up like that. What Owen did not know was that the Denton’s were bankrupt, as Shelby’s parents had never told her that they were bankrupt.

Meanwhile, at the Task Force, they were told that only six agents could go. Erin tried to sit out but was told that her “skills” were needed, as she needed to “babysit their informant’s wife.”

Later that night, at Molly’s, Burgess realized that Roman was still not over what had happened. It meant that instead of focusing on the job, they were both worrying about each other. However, Roman decided that they would “bury the past. In order to commemorate that, Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg) had Burgess’ old vest framed, which they hung on one of the walls of Molly’s.

Meanwhile, Ruzek met up with his father. He apologized for the way that he had sounded towards him the other night. Bob then told his son that the reason, why he had remained in uniform, was so that he could always be there for him, no matter what, as the family was more important than his job. For this, Ruzek thanked his father.

Later that night, Erin went over to Voight’s and asked for her old job back as the Task Force, which was too political, was not for her. He then hugged her and welcomed her back.
