Hurricane Paul, the "storm of the century," is about to hit New York City and all hell breaks loose down at 100 Centre Street. J.J. and his fellow assistant district attorneys are forced to stay at the office in the event the weather causes rioting and mayhem. In turn, Michelle Grande forces her Legal Aid officers to stay in, including Ramon who is worried about his pregnant wife at home. Meanwhile, Fatima runs out into the storm to score some drugs only to end up trapped outside and hysterical. Cynthia gets called in to assist the Legal Aid office, while Bobby runs off to join his fellow Brooklyn surfers to catch the big waves. Judge Rifkin does his best to calm a skittish Attallah who has a childhood fear of storms.
