Munch and Sheppard question the prisoner who arranged the hit on a slain government official. Danvers is appointed to the federal bench, but the independent counsel's office tries to railroad his case. Even though a key witness agrees to testify to the identity of the man who arranged the murder, the independent counsel trumps the arrest and wants to use the man to go after potentially bigger targets. In the process, the independent counsel digs up dirt on Danvers's past, a racially motivated beating Danvers took part in as a teenager, which threatens to derail his nomination. Meanwhile, Lewis continues to worry about Sheppard's abilities on the street and tells Falsone. Stivers tells Ballard that she thinks Sheppard probably shouldn't have pulled her gun.
