In this episode, Officer Nick Collins (Peter Mooney) confronted his past after his estranged brother reentered his life again, while the rest of the division raced against time to find an escaped convict and an ex- mixed martial arts fighter. Meanwhile, Officer Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith) made a life changing realization while Staff Sergeant Oliver Shaw (Matt Gordon) was forced to make a difficult decision after his teenaged daughter was picked up at a party the night before. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode opened at The Penny. Officer Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) tried to warn Officer Nick Collins (Peter Mooney) against chasing after Officer Juliet Ward (Erin Karpluk). Meanwhile, Officer Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan) discovered that she was failing at creating a bucket list of things to do before she became an adoptive mother. Officer Chloe Price (Priscilla Faia) failed in trying to woo Officer Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith), who was telling Staff Sergeant Oliver Shaw (Matt Gordon) about how much he loved working in Intelligence, back.


The next morning, Nick kicked Chloe out of his car after receiving a call from his paralyzed and estranged brother, Finn Collins (Peter Stebbings), who had suddenly returned. After paying him a visit, he discovered that his brother had seen the drunk driver who had killed his parents due to an accident at a nearby bar, and gave him his plate number.

Meanwhile, back at the 15th Division, Commissioner Alonso Santana (Richard Chevolleau) informed Staff Sergeant Oliver Shaw (Matt Gordon) that his teenaged daughter had been brought in at the 34th Division. She had been picked up partying the night before. Santana then offered to make the drug charge go away as it was discovered that she had had ecstasy in her system.

Meanwhile, Officer Marlo Cruz (Rachael Ancheril) informed Dov that Inspector Jarvis was shutting down their investigation. It meant that Dov could partner up again with Officer Chris Diaz (Travis Milne), and help in trying to locate and capture Brody Simmons (Ian Lake). He is a convict and ex-mixed martial arts fighter who had escaped from the hospital during a routine hospital visit.

Instead of going after Simmons, Nick lied to Juliet and told her to look for a confidential informant of his named Marco Brunswick (Tony Nappo) inside a building. While she was inside, Nick stabbed the tires of the blue and white pick-up which was owned by the driver who caused the accident that claimed the lives of Nick’s parents, and who caused Finn to become paralyzed. After Juliet was unsuccessful in finding Nick’s informant, they headed back to the station as Nick began complaining of a head ache.

Meanwhile, Dov and Chris ran into Simmons, and chased him through the street. However, after losing him, they managed to find an apartment which belonged to a woman named Tara (Laura Carswell). She claimed to be his wife, who had met him on a prisoner’s dating website. Thanks to Chloe’s knowledge regarding failed relationships, she and Detective Traci Nash (Enuka Okuma) were able to track him down to his ex-wife’s place. He had escaped to so that he could apologize to her for everything, as he was dying. However, Dov and Chris, who tracked him down and collared him, informed him that he wasn’t dying, and that all he had needed was a simple surgery.

Meanwhile, Andy and Juliet realized that something was off with Nick after seeing him walk out of the station in plain clothes. Juliet then did some digging. She discovered who Marco Brunswick really was, and realized that Nick was going to try to get revenge on Marco.

Later, on the rooftop of the building, when Nick confronted Marco, Marco revealed that he had been drunk and speeding that night. He learns that he one who had caused the accident had been Finn who had been driving that night, and who had run into him. After having Juliet arrest him, he confronted his brother who told him the truth. He had been driving that night as their father had been too tired to drive that night. Later that night, Juliet and Nick hooked up after she cleaned his wound.

Meanwhile, Oliver asked Santana to pull his daughter’s offense from the record, and  Chloe invited Officer Duncan Moore (Matthew Owen Murray) for a drink. She had a lot of beer in her locker, as she had continued buying Dov’s favorite beer in the hopes that they would get back together.

Outside the station, Dov made copies of their investigation, and stuffed them into Marlo’s empty pizza box so that they could still continue on with the investigation outside of work. Dov then revealed that he had realized that he really did want to work in Intelligence.
