The investigation of a gang rape at a concert takes an unexpected twist.

Plot

Quotes

Amaro: [to Rollins about Frank Patterson] I don't know what he did or what he saw, but my gut... we don't have his whole story.
Rollins: Oh, your gut. Good lord.
Munch: Rollins, problem?
Rollins: No, Sergeant.

Barba: A New Canaan high school student still unconscious from a mob assault. Bloomberg's splenetic.

Rollins: All right, so these guys... this gang of six. They had nothing to do with setting it up. They were just opportunists. I know this is hard to follow, Counselor.
Barba: No, I get it. It's Benghazi.

Gabby Shaw: I thought they were my friends. I trusted them.
Olivia: Well, if it makes a difference, a man who doesn't even know you went through a lot of trouble to help you.

Rollins: Hey, Nick. Nick, hold up. Hey, Frank came through. You were right about him from the get and I owe you an apology.
Amaro: No. No, you don't. The only reason I caught it... Maria. In hindsight when she came home from Iraq, she was textbook PTSD, and I didn't see it. I took it personally. Think it cost me my marriage.
Rollins: Have you told her that?
Amaro: Well, it's a little late. I don't think she wants to hear it.
Rollins: Maybe the first step is stop beating yourself up.
