Summary[edit | edit source]

Detective Amaro's badge is on the line when an arrest leads to gunfire.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Amaro and Rollins leave the party, before they stumble upon Officer McKenna in pursuit of a suspected drug dealer. A standoff leads to gunfire and the teenaged suspect is gravely wounded. While Amaro struggles to reconcile his by-the-book actions with his conscience, the SVU fights to keep Internal Affairs from jumping to conclusions. The case becomes a public spectacle and Amaro must decide if fighting for his badge is the best decision for his family.

Meanwhile, Captain Cragen makes a surprise announcement after giving Amaro his badge and gun. Cragen says he is retiring and leaving SVU in the hands of Benson, now that she is Sergeant. Amaro asks if this is because of him but Cragen says it was in his head and that he and his girlfriend are going on a trip.
