The middle school gunman demands that his pet pig be brought to him, then shoots a student and sets the classroom on fire after the police fail to do so. After the hostages are rescued and he is taken to the hospital with severe burns, the squad connects this incident with Mrs. Uba's murder and realizes that her son Jerry committed both crimes. Meanwhile, Danvers gets engaged, Pembleton stops taking his medication after discovering its effects on his mental focus and sexual relations with Mary, and Munch learns that Brodie has been evicted and offers to let him move in.
