Meanwhile, the team was asked to investigate a bombing at a café that caused one of the team to get demoted. Read on to learn more about this episode.
Detective Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) headed to work. It was after seeing a picture of her and Nadia DeCotis (Stella Maeve) on her refrigerator door. At the district, Sergeant Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) told her that she missed Nadia a lot, and told her that she was working on Nadia’s memorial stone. Upstairs, Detective Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) asked her how she was doing as they were already packing up the things on her desk. Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) then came in. He told them to go to a café, where a bomb had just exploded.
At the café, Firefighter Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso) told them that it had been caused by an IED of some sort. A little girl then went up to Jay. She knew that he was part of the police, and was about to say something to him, but was stopped by her mother. However, when he went to their apartment to see if he could talk to the girl, her mother didn’t allow him to as the last kid at her school who testified had gotten killed.
Meanwhile, Trudy was appalled by the fact that Nadia’s memorial stone wasn’t being approved. Because of this Officer Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty) went to see his cousin, who was a stone cutter. However, when asked about what should be engraved on it, Officer Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati), Sean’s partner, teared up and left the shop.
At the hospital, the wife of the owner, Mr. Mason Bramber (Sean Bradley), was undergoing surgery. They learned from one of Bramber’s employees that he had been threatened and shaken down for protection money by a man named Kenny Reevis (Anton Bassey). However, he claimed that he didn’t know who had bombed the café. Afterwards, Voight checked in on Lindsay, and reminded her not to get carried away by grief.
They then discovered that Graham Norcorss (James Sharpe) the owner of the building of the café had strong-armed and forced several of his previous tenants in other buildings before. Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) and Detective Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas) then went to pay him a visit. They got nowhere as he asked for his right to have a lawyer present.
Meanwhile, Trudy stormed into Chief George Barumgartner’s (Mark Forrest). It was after discovering that it was he who was preventing Nadia from getting a memorial stone. However, as he wouldn’t budge, Voight instructed Sean and Kim to get a particular file in a box from one of his storage units. He promised Trudy that everything would work out. At the storage unit, Sean told Kim that they were honoring Nadia by continuing to go on with their work.
At the same time, Jay managed to talk to the girl, Isabella Muniz (Haley Seda). Ge had pulled some strings to get her into a good academy on full scholarship. She then gave them a description of the bomber, who matched the description of an ex-convict named Sam Carden (Shane Kenyon). He had several grand tucked away in his apartment. After a car and street chase, Jay managed to arrest him.
At the interrogation room, Antonio and Officer Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins) couldn’t get him to talk. Atwater decided to let him think about things for a while. After discovering that it was possible that Norcross had hired Carden to do his electric work to cause fires to force his tenants out, Voight went inside the room only to find out that he had slit his wrists with the soda can that Atwater had left inside.
They then brought Norcross in, but let him go. It was after Craig “Mouse” Gurwitch (Samuel Hunt) discovered that Mason Bramber’s real name was Ross Montag. He had been investigated before by the Portland police and his insurance company after his first wife died of a car accident eight years ago. After roughing him up a little, they discovered that Bramber, whose wife had just passed away, had done it for the money, as he had taken out a life insurance settlement on his wife.
The next day, at Nadia’s memorial, Lindsay told them that she had been posthumously been accepted as a recruit to the police department. Voight then told Atwater that he would be Sean’s partner while Carden’s suicide was being investigated. It meant that Kim was now in Intelligence.
That night, instead of going to Molly’s with the others, Lindsay went to her mother’s bar. She told her that she had gotten Nadia killed as it was her that pushed her to want to be a cop.
