Back in present day, Kira and Cole tend to a young boy named Darren Klein, who seemingly injured himself during recess at school, but the two noticed some injuries that look different and even older, and X-rays confirm that the bruises came from physical strikes. Kira gently persuades the frightened Darren to talk to her and he reveals that her father, millionaire auto manufacturer Eric Klein, has been hitting him for being a “bad boy”. When Kira sees Eric about to come in, she tells Darren not to let him know she knows what's going on. She only tells Eric about his injury at recess. After telling nurse Aleida Montoya (Lisa Vidal) to keep an eye on Darren, Kira ducks out of sight. She then takes out her digital recorder, revealing that she has recorded what Darren told her, and calls Social Services. As Celia Bennett arrives from Social Services with FJU Detectives Holmes and Francis, Eric tried to get by them to get to Darren, but hospital's security stop him and escorts him outside.

Later, Grier, Boyle, Palmer and Crowe all speak to Nolan, explaining that Dylan has reported him to the DPD for harassment. Nolan continues with his claim that Christine is being abused, but Crowe tells him there is little to no evidence to prove his claims. Nolan refutes that he has seen the type of abuse injuries Christine has before. Crowe tells him that she knows what Jason Russo did to Lisa, and Nolan states how her ex-husband almost got Jason acquitted, and that they were lucky that the prosecution didn't falter and convicted him. He also notes about how Stetler helped Jason's parents almost get custody of Lisa's three children from Hannah. Crowe and the others express their condolences over Lisa and the actions of her ex-husband on his family, but tells him to let the police and others deal with Christine since he is too emotional involved. Grier says that he'll get someone to look over Christine. Later, when Christine frantically calls Nolan asking for help before the call suddenly cuts off, he rushes to her house again, calling the police, Grier, and Boyle along the way, and finds her beaten unconscious on the sofa. He attempts to carry Christine into his car, but Dylan rushes and tries to stop Nolan from driving his wife to the hospital, accusing him of kidnapping Christine.

He checks her out and sees that she has sustained some back injuries and a fractured left knee. As Palmer takes her up to surgery, Grier tells Lesniak that they should go out to eat together. Lesniak says she'll think about it after shift. Then a woman involved in car crash with her two children in the backseat is brought in and Boyle and Darko tend to her. One of the children reveals to Darko that his mother passed out behind the wheel. Darko asks if she has any medical problems and the boy further reveals that they were in a minor fender-bender earlier when they got hit from behind end earlier, and his mother complained of some neck pain. Darko, suspecting what the mother had, orders a head and neck X-rays, which confirm that she has whiplash and a concussion that occurred from the earlier accident which caused her to pass out, causing the crash. Neurosurgeon Dr. Frank Shepherd (LaMonica Garrett) checks her out, discovers that she has further injured her brain from the second crash and she will need surgery to drain the blood from her brain. As Shepherd takes her up to surgery, Boyle praises Darko for diagnosing the patient's injuries.
Afterwards, the hospital gets word of a crane collapse at a construction site and there are multiple injuries on scene. Boyle and Gilchrist set up triage and clear the emergency room, while Grier heads to the scene with Cole volunteering to help out. When they arrive on the scene, they see that the crane has crashed through several floors under construction and the area is littered with glass, steel, concrete rubble, large pipes and crane parts. There is also fire in other areas of the site, and some crane parts have also crashed into another building nearby. Firefighters and paramedics have already arrived on the scene. Grier assesses patients in the area with Cole's help. After helping, they see a worker, who was helping with the injured, suddenly get electrocuted by a power line hitting a metal pipe. Thinking quickly, Cole uses a wood beam to pull him out of the electric current. As paramedics tended the worker, Cole went back to help Grier assess patients. Grier tells him it was foolish of him and he could've got himself shocked, but Cole states that he's fine and notes that he used wood to free him from the current. They then find a worker whose leg has been impaled by some rebar in the rubble. The firefighters work to cut the rebar to free the victim as Grier slows down the bleeding. Cole then finds a bystander whose left arm was crushed by a large pipe and, seeing that they won't be able to free him from under the unstable pipe without losing the arm, Grier contacts Denver Memorial that they need a surgeon at the scene. Barkawi sends Palmer to the scene. Then a first wave of patients arrive in the ER.

Then the man with the rebar in his leg has arrived and Boyle goes to treat the patient, leaving Darko and Williams to tend the patient they were working on. Boyle calls Nolan for a consult. They do the X-rays and sees that the rebar has nicked the main artery in his leg but luckily, it hasn't been totally severed. Nolan takes him to surgery as Boyle goes back to help Darko with their patient.
Palmer arrives on the collapse scene and heads over to the patient he was called to check on. He discovers the man's arm is partially severed and he will have to amputate it to free him. Grier and Cole continue to help assess others in the area. Paramedic come to Grier, asking him to look over a woman who is underneath the fence when the crane fell. Grier and Cole check the woman, Jennifer Lisowski, who has been pinned under the steel fence by rubble. As firefighters work to remove the rubble, Jennifer tells them she is pinned, but is not sure if she has any injuries. Grier tells Cole to stay with her until the firefighters get Jennifer out while he goes to check out other injured people nearby. Palmer successfully amputates the man's arm from the pipe and has him rushed to the hospital. After about 10 minutes, Cole and the firefighters are able to free Jennifer. Although Jennifer doesn't seem to have apparent injuries, they nevertheless decided to take her to the hospital for evaluation and observation. At the hospital, Gene and OB doctor Renee Heller successfully helped the injured pregnant woman give birth to her child, who is 8 weeks premature, as the second wave of patients arrives. Palmer arrives with his patient as he, Boyle and Kim work to stabilize him. Walker and Darko work on a man with extensive internal injuries due to having been pinned by steel beams. After Palmer's patient is stabilized, Nurse Terry Hubbard (Michael James Shaw) tells him that Walker needs a surgeon. Palmer sees the patient is bleeding internal injuries and, despite efforts from Palmer, Walker and Darko, the man is unable to be resuscitated. Crowe, Gene and Gilchrist tend on a worker who has injuries to his eye and face from falling debris. Kira and Lesniak tend to a worker who sustained a neck injury with help from Barkawi and Shepherd, the latter off whom sends him up to surgery. Then Grier arrives with the patient with crush injuries on his legs and a crushed left hand. Palmer rushes over to help the man, with Cunningham, and med students Quinn Ripley (Bailee Madison) and Matt Gardner (Lucas Hedges) joining in. Cunningham calls reconstructive surgeon Dr. Donda Hendrix (Jill Scott) for consult. She arrives and concludes that the man will need extensive reconstructive surgeries. She, Palmer, and Cunningham take him up to surgery. The crane accident ultimately results in six people dead and eighteen injured.
After things have calmed down, Franelli checks out the patients of the crane accident and figures some of them will endure some PTSD, as Crowe suspects. Montoya then tells them they have two young men who stabbed each other in a violent fight. As they arrived, Walker recognizes one of them as Woodrow "Woody" Hutchinson Jr., the son of millionaire business mogul Woodrow Hutchinson Sr. As Walker and Boyle tend to him, Grier and Gene tend to the black patient, whom Gene recognizes as up-and-coming college basketball player Josh Foster. Cunningham comes down and tends to Foster while Nolan tends to Hutchinson. Hospital board member Ben Barrett shows up and orders the surgeons to treat Woody first since his father is Barrett's friend and a big donor for the hospital. Grier and Gene argue with Barrett, Foster whispers to Cunningham that Woody was the one who attacked him first after Foster humiliated him for making racial statements and trying to sexually harass Foster's girlfriend. Realizing what's going on and knowing that Woody has more time than Foster does, Cunningham quickly wheels Foster to the elevator, despite angry protests from Barrett and Woody's father, and calls Palmer to tell him what has happened. Using the only open operating room, Cunningham performs life-saving surgery on Foster, while Nolan performs surgery on Woody next after another operating room opens. Barrett and Woody's father angrily confront Cunningham for defying orders by not sending Woody into surgery first and threaten to have her fired. Cunningham defends herself and tells them that she knows what Woody had started the fight and what he did to Foster and his girlfriend and. Barrett and Woodrow again threaten to ruin her career, but Palmer and Barkawi stand up to them and defend Cunningham saving Foster; they accusing the two of being racist and wanting to let Foster die to cover up that Woody instigated the knife fight in revenge for Foster humiliating him over his racism and going after Foster's girl. Crowe sides with Cunningham, Palmer, and Barkawi and refuses to back up Barrett and the Hutchinsons and even threatens to report them both to the board of directors, forcing Barrett to resign his position and causing Hutchinson to vow to sue the hospital. Cunningham silently thanks Palmer, Barkawi, and Crowe before returning to work.
At the end of her shift, Kira walks to the hospital parking lot and finds herself being confronted by Eric Klein, who demands that she recant her statement so his son Darren can return home to him. Kira defiantly refuses, leading Klein to grab her and pin to her car, warning Kira the next time they meet, she better give him what he wants before letting go of her and walking off. As he leaves, Kira was shaken, but remains composed as she gets into her car.
At the end, Cunningham informs Foster and his parents that Woody has been arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, sexual harassment on his girlfriend and such, and Foster says that he will testify against him and will not be intimidated by his father.

Real-estate mogul Scott Milliard joins as the new hospital donor and former department chief Sandra Banner becomes the new board member.

Mark adds that he likes Cunningham, but views her as a maverick.
Meanwhile, the hospital gets a call about a couple who got into a hiking accident up in the Rocky Mountains and are on the way by helicopter. As they arrive at the hospital, Boyle, Kim, and med student Tyrone White (Jharrel Jerome) work on the wife while Grier, Darko and Gilchrist tend to the husband, and Barkawi and Palmer come down for surgical consults.

Cunningham arrives to help stabilize him for surgery. Thanks to Darko's intuition, they discover the bullet is still inside within three inches of his heart. Hank suddenly crashes and flatlines. Despite the best effort from the doctors and nurses, he dies and the gang members present grieve over him. Gilchrist knows that they might retaliate against the gang responsible. As Gilchrist checks on Kira after Eric Klein accosted her in the previous episode, Kira says that the police are still looking for him and Child Protective Services have hidden Darren in protective custody. Then Kim shows Gilchrist that the gang leader is calling for others to help retaliate for Hank's death. Gilchrist takes the phone and cuts off the call, telling the gang members if they go after their rivals for revenge, chances are they will end up in jail or dead. The gang says that Hank wanted to go straight after the last gang war and was on his way out when he was killed. Kim comes up and says that the last gang war started because one gang member raped and beat a rival's younger sister and that her husband and his police colleagues had to interfere stop it, and multiple innocent lives were lost in the crossfire. Gilchrist tells them to honor Hank's wishes by helping the police get the rival gang responsible, and Kim recommends her husband and his colleagues, so they can loop in the DPD's Gang Unit. The gang agrees and the members leave the hospital, with both Kim and Gilchrist hoping that they listen to their advice.
Mark speaks to Kira about the situation with Eric Klein and she says that she's not afraid and will not be intimidated. Later, when Kira returns to her apartment building, Eric confronts her with three bodyguards in tow. Although Kira holds her own for a short while, she is soon overpowered. With the bodyguards holding Kira firmly, Eric demands Darren's whereabouts, which Kira states that she doesn't even know where Darren is and she would never tell him even if she did. Eric says none of this should've happened and she should never have reported him. Kira defiantly reminds him that he's been brutally abusing Darren and doesn't deserve to be a father. Eric says that he will get him back one way or another and has his bodyguards beat her down. Kira says that he will never get Darren back as Eric kicks her in the abdomen. He warns her that this is strike two and if she refuses to withdraw her complaint again, he will ruin her in every way possible. He and his men leave, leaving Kira doubled over in pain. Shen takes out her cell phone and makes a call.
Later Boyle and Gene inform Kim and Gilchrist in the lounge that the gang members have informed the police everything they know about the shooting of Hank Davis. They raided the rival gang's lair and arrested them all, including the one who shot Hank. Grier was chatting with them about the day they are having when Marshall came to them, warning them that Kira was assaulted. Grier, Boyle and Gene treat Kira with Gilchrist and Kim helping; she is revealed to have only sustained a couple of bruised ribs, a black eye, a split lip, and some other bruises, but no significant damage. Kira tells them that Eric Klein and his bodyguards confronted her in the parking garage of her apartment. Franelli comes down to console Kira. He suggests that she stay with him until Eric gets caught, which Kira acknowledges. Crowe and Mark are shocked how Kira was beaten so severely; Kyle then arrives and is enraged to see his twin sister beaten up.
