Meanwhile, a wrench is thrown into Andy and Detective Sam Swarek’s (Ben Bass) relationship; and much to Officer Nick Collins’ (Peter Mooney) surprise, the precinct got an unexpected transfer, who might be more than who she really says she is. Read on to learn more about this episode.
The episode began with Detective Sam Swarek (Ben Bass) and Officer Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) getting ready to head back home. It was after spending a three-week vacation in Staff Sergeant Oliver Shaw’s (Matt Gordon) cabin.
Meanwhile, Officer Nick Collins (Peter Mooney) roped Officer Chloe Price (Priscilla Faia) into training with him as he planned to transfer to ETF. Officer Chris Diaz (Travis Milne), who had been going to Narcotics Anonymous meetings, began an affair with a former addict who was married. Officer Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith), in the meantime, advised Detective Marlo Cruz (Rachael Ancheril), whom he was helping out with on the case of the bombing at the precinct, to tell Sam that she was pregnant with his baby. They also discovered that the bomb that was used in the bombing of the precinct had a different signature from that of the Ted McDonald (Shawn Doyle) bombings.
Because of Dov’s advice, Marlo told Sam that she was four months pregnant at the parking lot. She said it before he left to meet up with Andy, who was staying at Traci’s apartment for a while. However, he wasn’t able to tell her about it as Andy got attacked a few minutes after she opened the balcony doors.
The next day, Nick was surprised to see the mysterious girl he had met in the locker rooms. It turned out that she had just transferred from the Vancouver Police Department, and ended up working for the shift with Chloe, who had gotten in late. She felt like Nick was the only person she could actually talk to as everyone else had been Dov’s friend before she came along. She then spent the rest of the shift answering Juliet’s questions about the precinct.
They then discovered that another woman had also been attacked, just like Andy. However, this attack was a little different as she had gotten raped by her attacker, but didn’t file as she had gotten drunk that night.
After bringing in the owner of the coffee shop Traci always went to, they discovered that he had another customer who constantly took pictures and stalked Traci when she was home. They then brought this to the attention of Sex Crimes, and Detective Capello (Alexandra Castillo), from the Sex Crimes Division, told them to leave the case to them.
However, as they felt that they had a greater responsibility to warn those in the neighborhood, they went door to door, and warned the women in the neighborhood. While they were on patrol, Officer Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan) told Chris that she was nervous. She had to film a short video for her case worker saying why she wanted to adopt little Sophie.
Later that night, Traci, who told Dov that she was back together with Detective Steve Peck (Adam McDonald), mentioned that she had gotten some yellow lilies that she thought were from Steve. Dov then realized that this was part of the rapist’s modus operandi. She discovered that some flowers had been sent to another woman, whom they made sure to bring to safety. After a stakeout, they arrested a man who was sneaking into an apartment, but let him go as it wasn’t him. Afterwards, the woman whom Traci and Andy talked to reported the attack on her, officially.
Detective Capello, after hearing what happened, called Inspector John Jarvis (Oliver Becker) because of what happened. Later, Chris discovered that woman he was having an affair with was the inspector’s wife.
Meawhile, before Dov drove Marlo home, Marlo told him that she believed that the bombing had been an inside job. It meant that the bomb had been planted by a police officer within their precinct.
Later, in the locker rooms, Juliet apologized to Nick for blowing him off before. Later, she got into a car with a man who looked liked her handler, whom she briefed about regarding the officers in the precinct.
Traci, after discovering that Andy was crying as Sam had told her about Marlo’s pregnancy, decided to drive her home.
