A drive-by shooter opens-fire on the community outreach baseball game that 15 Division is hosting. Two kids get shot, and the whole neighborhood is shaken.

But when Gail starts to follow a lead that points to someone else, she alienates her brother. She makes the arrest, knowing what's at stake for Steve, and he feels betrayed. He lets her know, and almost makes Gail cry. Luckily, social worker Lauralee brings Sophie around for a visit, and the adorable little girl cheers Gail right up.

Andy says, "This is better than perfect, it's us." When she turns, Sam is down on one knee, holding out an engagement ring. "Marry me, McNally," he says. Andy responds with a resounding, "Yes!"
