Cragen sends the detectives on a manhunt for a man who had raped three girls and hacked into several TVs in a store to expose himself to people. However, Fletcher, the officer who arrests the man, turns out to be a phony. Fletcher is actually a teenager who dreams of being a cop but ends up messes everything up, as while he finds evidence, it doesn't count as he is not actually a police officer. Fletcher is arrested for his actions, but Marlowe cuts him a break as his intentions were good and makes a deal so that he won't lose his chance to be a cop in the future, as long as he adheres to certain rules such as turning over all his police paraphernalia. Fletcher breaks the rules again and spies on the suspect, but is discovered and shot. Marlowe is furious because Fletcher broke the deal, but he reveals that the suspect's father gets off on tapes of the crimes. Marlowe seems to decide to cut him some slack again, telling him that maybe one day she will see him when he really is a cop. This information leads to the arrest of the suspect and his father who was the mastermind behind the rapes.
