Benson (Mariska Hargitay) has traveled into Chicago to help Voight (Jason Beghe) and intelligence with a rape/murder case that is frighteningly similar to a case from New York a decade ago. She calls in Fin (Ice-T) and Amaro (Danny Pino) to assist. The prime suspect, Yates (Dallas Roberts) is let go after rigorous questioning. He then requests a meeting with Lindsay (Sophia Bush) and he warns of unintended consequences from what intelligence is doing.
As District 21 is struggling to come to terms with the loss of one of the team they are forced to put their personal feelings aside when a café is bombed. The unit has several suspects and only one good eye-witness, who happens to be a minor. Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) pulls some strings to convince the mom to let him question Isabella (guest star Haley Seda) on what she saw. Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins) finds himself in hot water when he makes a crucial mistake. Thanks to the tech savvy Mouse (guest star Samuel Hunt) the team is able to gain important intel that could help solve the case. Meanwhile Voight (Jason Beghe) helps Platt (Amy Morton) when she comes up against several roadblocks in an attempt to get a memorial stone for their fallen member.
