When Amaro (Pino Daniel) and Rollins (Kelli Giddish) leave a party, they hit the policewoman McKenna (Vicky Jeudy), which just follows a young drug dealer. During the chase the juvenile suspect is shot and seriously wounded. While Amaro is struggling in the face of incidents with himself and his conscience, CSR tries to smooth things over between them and the Department of Internal Affairs. The case comes to the public and Amaro, the question arises whether it should ever fight for his badge, also with regard to his family. Captain Cragen (Dann Florek) makes meanwhile a surprising announcement.
