Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate a gas attack in New York city subway system that left 20 people dead, all African-Americans. In Baltimore, Detectives John Munch and Frank Pembleton read about the attack and realize that it's quite similar to a similar gas attack in a church some 5 years ago where the victims were also African-American. They travel to New York to help out in the case but after getting the cold shoulder from Briscoe and Curtis go about investigating on their own.

Egan's lawyer asks for and receives a change of venue to Westchester County where ADA McCoy will have to convince an all-white jury that Egan is guilty.
