Chicago PD begins tonight with Officers Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Mike Sorensen (Kevin Kane) responding to a call to famous baseball player, Jake McCoy (Billy Burke). A neighbor approaches them about the dogs barking. Burgess and Sorensen ring the doorbell, but there is no response.
Sorensen finds bloody footprints and Burgess calls for back up, the front door is unlocked, inside they discover the body of an unidentified young girl. Burgess brings in the Intelligence Unit, there was no forced entry. no alarm system, no sign of Jake McCoy, just some broken and stolen memorabilia.
Jake’s cell keeps going to voicemail, but Dt. Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger) calls Jake’s lawyer who tells him Jake is on a hunting trip. Dt. Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) asks why he would even bother informing his lawyer he was heading out of town. Sgt Voight (Jason Beghe) tells the team to ping Jake’s cell, as he is instructing the team, Dt. Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins) informs them they are starting to get a media circus outside.
Voight tells Atwater to head out and speak to neighbors and view their security footage before the press can. Dt. Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) calls Voight and Dt. Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas) into another room. Antonio confronts Olinsky when he sees a picture of the two of them; asking him if this is going to be a conflict. Olinsky tells Antonio he doesn’t see any strips on his shoulders, so Voight asks him the same question. Olinsky says no.
Dt. Lindsay arrives back at the Precinct and there was a delivery of daisies there for her. She assumes they were from Dt. Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer), who denies sending them. There is a blank note inside and Halstead tells her he is going to find out who did send them to her.
The Intelligence Unit discovers their victim is a 16-yr-old girl named Maya Collins, who has one prior for possession. Her cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head. Neighbors say they heard the scream but it wasn’t unusual at Jake’s house. Lindsay asks if Jake has a history of violence.
Olinsky admits he met him about 10 years earlier, but doesn’t believe Jake is a killer. Antonio tells them it looks like vice was looking at Jake for serving alcohol to under-aged girls at his house. Ruzek says it could be a case of robbery and the girl was just collateral damage. Antonio asks Olinsky if Jake is known for being into under-aged girls that, Olinsky tells him that he needs to ask Jake that, and Jake had a goffer named Freddy.
Voight tells them to check if the robbery is the MO of any crews, and to alert pawn shops. They are told to let bus stations and train stations to be on alert for Jake. Olinsky and Antonio go to see Freddy, where they learn Jake fired him after Jake got into an accident and crashed his Ferrari into a lamp post, and saw God. Antonio asks what Ferrari and what lamp post, Freddy looks at Olinsky.
Antonio shows Freddy a picture of Maya, and he says he doesn’t know her. Olinsky says that he was the one who brought the girls around. When Freddy feels like he is being interrogated he asks to speak to Olinsky alone. Freddy asks him if he is going to be there for Jake, and take care of him. Olinsky asks him if he needs to add anything, he says no. Olinsky tells him to keep his phone on.
Sgt. Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) tells Burgess and Sorensen to take a call at a deli, where a sandwich was supposedly stolen, and a waitress was knocked over, Burgess gets upset that they are doing a sandwich run. Sorensen listens to Platt and promises to bring her back a sandwich after the call.
Antonio brings the accident report to Voight’s attention. When Olinsky is called into his office he asks what they are fishing for; Antonio says the truth! Olinsky admits that he fudges the report so there was no alcohol involved. As he is in Voight’s office, Jake calls him; Olinsky goes to meet him, but the rest of the IU is watching the field where they are meeting.
Olinsky tells Jake to talk to him, that he called him for help. He admits he didn’t kill the girl. Jake pulls a gun out of a paper bag and attempts to kill himself, but they arrest him before he could get the shot off. He swears to Olinsky he didn’t do it.
Olinsky says to put Jake into interview room #1, Jake says if he isn’t speaking to Al (Olinsky), then he wants his lawyer present. Atwater brings him to the room, while the rest of the Unit disagree on who should be running ‘point’ on the case. Olinsky says it is going to be him and Voight, but Halstead disagrees. Voight says that relationships help with interviews, and if it isn’t going to help, he will be the one to decide that.
Jake tells them he met Maya at the Boys and Girls Club he volunteers at. He goes on to tell them how scared she was about her pimp; admitting she was a prostitute for over a year. Jake says he wanted to help her, so she could finally feel like she could trust an adult for once in her life.
Jake says everything was legit, and he had everything recorded on his laptop; Olinsky tells him there was no laptop found, and as he looks at Voight, Jake tells him that it was stolen by whoever did this. Jake admits that after the accident, his life changed. Voight shows him the picture of Maya and tells him he is having trouble believing him.
Jake says all this must be from her pimp, but he cannot provide a name, and he never saw the guy either. Jake tells them he has an alibi and he was at his daughter’s house. When Halstead and Lindsay go to see his daughter, she admits that her dad didn’t arrive until 1:15 in the morning.
Burgess and Sorensen are at the deli, and when they see the person who stole the sandwich across the street, Burgess goes after her. They chase her down the alley, where she breaks Sorensen’s nose and Burgess has to taze her. Burgess has even more, surprising news, she is listed as a police officer.
Voight asks about the pawn shops and the laptop, but nothing yet. Olinsky is sitting at his desk just staring at the picture of Maya, when he doesn’t want to talk, Voight goes to his office. Lindsay gets a phone call, but when she picks up no one answers. Halstead asks her who it was, she said they hung up but the call came from Eastern Kansas, the same place the flowers came from; paid in cash. Halstead runs the number.
Olinsky and Voight have a private meeting. Olinsky says he is not protecting Jake; Voight says he knows he isn’t, that he is protecting himself because he feels like Jake has been playing him this whole time. Commander Emma Crowley (Barbara Eve Harris) meets with Olinsky and confronts him on his friendship with Jake McCoy; and she says she is taking him off the case. When Olinsky goes to sit back at his desk, she asks if she has made herself clear. Olinsky takes his badge off and throws it on his desk and tells her if she wants it, she can come get it.
Olinsky is furious about being taken off the case because of his friendship with Jake. Commander Crowley says she will take his badge if he gets involved in any way in the case. Antonio just announces they found a pawns shop where a guy named John Bowland, just pawned off a bunch of Jake’s stuff; and he also had one prior for burglary.
Ruzek and Atwater go to the address they have on record. They bust the door down, and the man says he found all this stuff in the garbage and only found out it was stolen when he tried to pawn it. Atwater finds the laptop, and the man admits it was with all the other stuff.
Back at the precinct, Atwater finds a file on the laptop called “Lost Girls”. The videos are about various girls, and you can hear him admitting he wants to help these girls. Antonio admits that it looks like Jake was telling the truth. Voight brings the laptop to Jake and his lawyer, he stands by his word that he was at his daughter’s. Jake says he was using these videos to find their families and do an intervention. That all he wanted to do was help because he too used to be an addict.
Burgess brings in the woman who stole the sandwich and broke her partner’s nose. Burgess asks her what is going on, but she is unwilling to speak.
The IU have pictures of all four girls from the videos and one of them is Alicia Meyers. She got arrested the same time Maya did, and they were working out of the same motel. Voight tells them to check it out. Lindsay and Halstead find Alicia after the motel manager asks them how long they want with her. Alicia initially refuses to help, but once Lindsay shows her Maya’s picture, she admits that their pimp, Saint, killed Maya. He had a saying, “You fly, you die!”
Halstead and Lindsay learn Maya was trying to get out and Jake had said he would take care of her. They offer Alicia help, and she tells them that Saint comes at 11:55 every day to get his money. Olinsky is in the precinct watching the videos Jake had on his laptop and is deeply affected by it.
The IU have the entire motel under watch when Alicia tells them that is Saint. He is collecting money from his prostitutes when the Unit grabs him. Alicia slaps him screaming at him for killing Maya. Atwater finds an All-Star baseball ring in his glovebox, as they haul Saint away in handcuffs.
In the interrogation room, Saint says Maya was confused as far as he knew she was 18. He then says that Jake liked the girls he knew. Antonio asks him if he knew a guy named Freddy, and says the ring was a gift from Maya. Voight threatens him about the cage and asks him one more time about Maya. When Saint denies to answer, Voight cocks his gun at the back of his neck. Saint finally admits he was Maya’s pimp, but she was alive the last time he saw her.
Burgess fights to make sure Vicky doesn’t end up in lock-up, but her partner insists she deserves it after assaulting a police officer. Platt says there is nothing they can do, even after Burgess explains why Vicky ended up the way she did.
Olinsky goes to see Jake’s daughter, Marley, to see how she is doing. She knows Olinsky is the only one who doesn’t want anything from her father. He was asking if Marley spoke to her dad that night, she said no. She admits that he called Freddy from her phone. Olinsky leaves and visits Freddy. He asks when is the last time he spoke to Jake, Freddy says it’s been over 6 months, when Jake fired him.
Freddy lies, and Olinsky tells him he knows and the call lasted for over 6 minutes and the call happened at 11:38pm. Olinsky says he wants to know the content of the conversation. Olinsky yells at Freddy, who tries threatens him, with pictures from the parties, with a lot of stuff being passed around. Olinsky grabs the baseball bat and tells Freddy he knows that he was the patsy cop for all their parties.
He swings the bat towards Freddy and orders him to tell him what happened to Maya. Olinsky walks in the precinct with Freddy in handcuffs and says it was Jake! Ruzek takes Freddy, but Commander Crowley says she needs to speak to Olinsky, she gives him 45 minutes to get a confession, but she will return for his badge, 10 days suspension and enrollment in the behavior intervention system.
“Welcome to the new and improved Chicago Police Department Al!”
Olinsky goes to visit Jake in his cell, but he tells him he needs to know what happened to Maya if he is going to be able to help him out of this jam too. Jake says it was an accident. He had let Maya stay at his house to get on her feet, while he was on his hunting trip. He came a day early and found that Maya had stolen all his watches and money.
After all, he had done for her, how was he supposed to feel. Jake admits he pushed her and she fell backwards and hit her head, then blood started coming out. He says all he wanted to do was help her. Olinsky asked him why he didn’t call an ambulance, he said she was already dead; and he knew how it would look, so he took off to his daughter’s and called Freddy.
Freddy said he would go back and make it look like a robbery. Jake keeps saying it was an accident. Olinsky says he is sorry, then Jake asks what the plan is, and what to say. After Jake’s confession, the DA says they are going to file a complaint for voluntary manslaughter. Jake’s lawyer looks at Olinsky, and says, “Some friend!”
Olinsky hands in his badge and feels guilty. No one says a word to him, but he turns to the Intelligence Unit team and tells them, had he taken him in for the DUI six months earlier, maybe Jake could have been in a program, or locked up then Maya would still be alive. He places Maya’s picture on his desk and leaves the station.
Halstead figures out that the call and the flowers came from a place just outside the Penitentiary. He spoke to the local Sheriff who said it sounds a lot like a “whack job” they have in town who does this all the time. They have arrested him, so they are safe. Lindsay admits to Halstead that her mother told her that her father did a stint in that prison.
Burgess goes to visit Vicky in jail, and tells her that she is staying there with her in the cell until she gets out tomorrow. She promises to not leave her alone. Vicky admits she can’t get passed the accident that killed three people, and she wanted to chase the driver to the ends of the earth. Tonight’s episode ends Olinsky watching Maya’s video.
