The episode began with Officer Adam Ruzek (John Patrick Flueger), who was undercover in the organization called Black Grid. The entire Intelligence Unit were working undercover in order to ensure that the World Trade Conference happening in Chicago would run smoothly. As he created oil jug bombs to throw the next day, he was approached by one of the girls, Sierra, who was interested in him.
After the threat assessment meeting, he and Detective Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas) hurried to the Wexford Hotel after Ruzek received a call for help from Sierra. However, when they got there, she fell from the hotel room window. It was on the floor rented out to Argentinian Secretary Fabian Sosa (Gary Perez). Ruzek then tried to question the dignitary, but was stopped by the FBI.
Afterwards, thanks to Detective Antonio Dawson’s (Jon Seda) confidential informant, they learned that Sierra or Felicia Hueus, had been Sosa’s escort for the night.
Meanwhile, Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), who suddenly received a bottle of wine from Sergeant Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) from the Manhattan Special Victims Unit, asked Officer Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Officer Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty) to monitor the Black Grid’s hideout. Inside the car, Kim expressed concern that Felicia and Ruzek had been an item while he was undercover as he was obsessed on getting justice for her.
Because of this, the entire Intelligence Unit barricaded Sosa’s convoy and detained him at an apartment. While he was there, the team’s new technical expert, Mouse (Caleb Hunt), got into Sosa’s phone. He discovered that he was being blackmailed for $200,000 or else the video of him and Felicia would be posted online.
Meanwhile, Detective Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) was asked by Sergeant Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) to break up a bar fight which his younger brother, Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss), was involved in. He then discovered that his brother was staying in Chicago indefinitely.
Mouse then discovered that the email had been sent by Mason Rotowski (Kale Clauson). Hewas also known as “Mad Max”, the leader of Black Grid. The next day, they managed to arrest him after Burgess tazed him during the protest. However, he denied ever sending a blackmail letter or taking the video.
Will then paid a visit to Jay at the precinct, met Detective Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush), and asked if he could stay at his place for a while, which Jay agreed to.
The entire team then geared up as Mouse and Jay had come up with the idea that they reply back to the blackmailer and show up with the cash in order to see who the culprit truly was.
They then discovered that the culprit was another member of the Black Grid, and that Felicia had done it in the name of the cause. However, they had decided to blackmail Sosa to earn a little bit of money for it. They had argued over how much he would get. After she attacked him, he had pushed her a little too hard, which was why she had fell through the window.
Ruzek then attended Felicia’s memorial, and Jay came home to find his brother beaten up. Will then admitted to him that he hadn’t told him the truth on why he had come back home from New York.
