Jamie and his family are at Michael’s house paying their respects, Jamie goes to speak to Michael alone. Michael asks him if he ever broke a promise to his son because his father broke a promise to him, he was supposed to take him to a game on Sunday.

The news is covering the story about the hero who saved the baby, but Frank won’t tell them that Jamie was that cop.
Frank calls in Jamie’s partner, he tells him that Jamie works undercover and it’s some serious business with some really bad people and he doesn’t want to blow his cover, or put his life in danger. He goes on to ask Sgt. Renzulli to take credit for saving the baby and he can’t tell anyone about this, not even his wife.
Danny gets a call, he heads to the morgue because he is looking for a double check on the autopsy for Chris, Michael’s dad but gets a refusal. Danny heads to the station and tries to reopen the case. His next step is to head to the fire hall and speak to Chris’s business partner, they owned a construction company together. His partner says he wasn’t that surprised that Chris killed himself because he was going through a divorce and there were financial problems, although there was a million dollar life insurance policy.
Danny meets with Frank and explains that he has a hard time saying no to the kid. Frank understands how Danny feels and wants to help any way he can.
Renzulli is upset with Jamie for never telling him that he was undercover, Jamie tries to talk to him but Renzulli wants nothing of it.
Danny is at Chris’s house and the detective who closed the case id surprised that he has his file in his hands. Danny tells him that there was another footprint on the chair other than Michael’s when he hanged himself and the detective tells him to give him a break, the guy was a classic suicide case. Frank calls Danny, he got another autopsy done and now there seems to have been a blunt force trauma to the victim’s head, the cause of death is not undetermined pending investigation. The Sargent is upset that Danny put his nose into the Firefighter’s case but ends up giving the case to Danny when he comes up with the new evidence.
Danny tells Erin that Jamie is still undercover, she is upset and heads over to face Frank about it. She is upset that Frank didn’t tell him about Jamie’s being undercover and saving the baby, he tells her that she didn’t know because she didn’t need to and this is his job.
