When a teenage boy is shot dead, the Intelligence unit begins to investigate, soon discovering the gun recovered is the same gun used in a case Voight investigated 17 years earlier. As the victim's father, a prominent lawyer, tries to get the case taken from Intelligence, Voight digs into his past case, becoming suspicious of his old partner. As both Intelligence and Voight close in on the truth, Voight's ex-partner puts him up in front of the review board for disobeying direct orders.

Quotes Edit

Ruzek: Al, you still got it. Everyone, Al's still got it, you hear that? Erin, tweet that out. Al's still got it. The world should know.

Lindsay: We gotta figure out who killed Richie Dowd so that Voight can figure out how that gun was used in the Ruffalo murder, which is starting to look like a real wobbly conviction right now.

Woods: Hank, you go pulling a thread, there's no telling what all unravels. Quit digging into this, or, what was the line you used to say all the time? Oh yeah, "we're going for a ride."

Voight: My friend took a bullet to the forehead over $122. You're lucky they didn't pull you out of the-
Valentine: Lucky? I've been rotting in here like meat for 17 years!
