Jackie and Danny investigate a cop shooting at a diner, but are surprised to find neither the cop nor the owner of the diner (Connie Markos) are still there. They eventually learn the cop is actually auxiliary police: a man named Mike Galatis who is Connie's nephew. Connie was threatened by loan sharks and Mike killed Billy in self-defense. Although Mike swears Connie’s innocence, they find stolen handguns in Connie's storage unit, and when Connie's arrested, he puts the blame on Mike. Encouraged by Danny to do the right thing, Mike proves Connie's criminality and this forces Connie to reveal the bad guy's location.

Inspired by Jamie, Frank instead proposes promoting the power of personal stories and connections that come from the job. Also, Jamie takes on a second job as a painter for Renzulli's More...company because of his struggle to pay off his law school loans.
