In the last episode, the unit goes after a killer who is victimizing people in Chicago and New York.
In this week’s episode, titled “The Price We Pay”, Voight goes to extreme measures to help out his son Justin, who has found himself in trouble again.
Voight gets some more pressure from the higher ups to get results. They bring him a case of where two rival mob families involved after one man (named Frank) is killed. Voight is friends with one of the families which makes things uncomfortable for him. He quickly finds out that his son Justin is involved and now is torn between giving his bosses what they want and protecting Justin.
Tensions run high in the squad as Halstead gets fed up with being used by Lindsey to get back at Voight and Dawson and Voight are at ends as Dawson learns that Voight is friends with the mob family suspected of killing Frank. Things don’t get better as Halstead and Lindsey compete to try and solve the murder and Dawson receives an offer from IA that he could get Voight’s job after they take Voight down.
Voight tells Lindsey the truth. That Justin was the driver as Cattalono’s son killed Frank. He admits that he’s going to try and stone wall Dawson as he works the case. He asks Lindsey to help him help Justin and she comes up with a plan, but it involves Dawson.
After the squad closes the case, Voight and Justin reconnect and Voight opens up with Justin about Justin’s mother. He apologizes for not being the father Justin needed and wants Justin to get help. So he brings him to enlist in the army.
As the show comes to an end, Dawson wonders if he made the right decision to back Voight’s play and Halstead and Lindsey decide on remaining friends rather then trying to hide a relationship.
Meanwhile, the desk Sergeant is trying to take everyone’s photos for new Ids and she continues to give Burgess and Atwater a hard time. She defends Voight because she knows that Vogith would stop at nothing to help someone out and despite the things that he’s done, he is still a good cop.
In the next episode called “Different Mistakes”, the squad looks into a situation that involves cops, one of them being Voight’s old partner as he’s being accused of being dirty.
