Two bodies are found in an underground fallout shelter. They are of two young people, an African American boy and a Caucasian girl, who were lovers during the notorious Detroit riots of 1967. Their Romeo and Juliet story came to a violent end, and the case leads Longford to his estranged ex-cop father for answers.

In another part of the city, a Latina woman is found dead, and upon further investigation, it appears she was pregnant. This sends the team in search of the woman's baby as well as the illegal clinic that she was being treated by.

In other goings-on, a comment made by Stone about illegal immigrants angers Sanchez, and various co-workers extend their advice to Washington when they find he and his wife's sex life has stalled.

While a Hollywood production company is filming a movie in Detroit, the drug-riddled starlet of the picture is found murdered in her trailer. Fitch, Longford, Washington & Mahajan interrogate several suspects, including the philandering director, producer and production assistant.

Elsewhere, Stone & Sanchez must figure out how a presumably homeless man's body ended up being frozen in a vacant building. They quickly arrest a vagrant who tries to flee, and he bites Sanchez's arm before Stone can knock him out. As they put the pieces together, they discover that the victim was definitely not homeless, nor poor, but rather well-off.

Stone opens up to Sanchez about his brother's death and his guilt, while Fitch is excited to get a phone call from his son, who wants to come and visit Detroit.

12 :01x12 - Key To The City

Homicide hits close to home when Alice Williams is found murdered after attending a surprise retirement party for Longford. Mason, a good friend of Alice's, demands justice and this case takes top priority for the team.

All signs point to crooked politician Malloy, whom Alice had dirt on and whom Fitch has always felt was a high-powered criminal. Thanks to a helpful call girl, and her taped confessions of what she knew about Malloy's illegal dealings while being his mistress for a decade, things are looking up. Unfortunately, there's a mole in the department who will do anything to protect Malloy's name and reputation. This leads Fitch on both a professional and personal rampage while Malloy is attending a charity gala.
