The show opens with Sheila walking Noah home from school and meeting Olivia at her door. Olivia invites her to dinner but Sheila declines. Noah says he wishes he had to meet Ellie because Sheila says she loved him so much. Olivia looks unhappy. The next scene is two teenage girls walking into a drug store looking for something called Blue Glacier. A woman stands on a corner and is met by a man and they go back to his house. It is their first date. She posts pictures on her social media account of them together. He is a well-known boxer. He tries to take her to his bedroom but she says she wants to take it slow. He pushes her down and rips her clothes off as she screams NO over and over again.
Katie is seen walking down the street crying and a man asks if she is OK. She cries no and says she was just raped. Fin and Rollins arrive at the hospital to be told the victim is trying to leave. One minute she says she was raped and the next she doesn’t’ know. As they try to talk to her she says she has to leave and that she wasn’t raped. Katie leaves the hospital. Rollins and Fin fill Olivia in on what they know and Cressie researches and finds that Katie Miller is a well know Instagram celebrity. She posted a photo of her and a man’s arm at 9:30 pm the night she reported that she was raped. Olivia and Rollins go to Katie’s home to check on her. She has photos of her with the fighter who raped her framed on her table and she is again asked if she was raped. Katie denies it and asks them to leave.
Fin and Cressie interview the lawyer Katie said she was working with but he says he never heard of her. They think the fighter must be pressuring her to not press charges. Fin and Cressie get a call from Olivia that the fighter, Andy wants to talk to them right away. They head to his gym. Andy shows them a text he received from Katie an hour ago. It says “pay me $ 10,000 or I will tell the cops you raped me.” He says they had rough sex the night before but he didn’t rape her.
Andy goes to the station and says they met online and texted quite a bit and he was starting to like her. She then sent him a text saying she wanted him to rape her. He shows them the text. Olivia decides that Andy should text Katie back and say he wants to pay her the money. If she shows up she will be arrested for extortion. If she doesn’t show up he will be arrested for rape. Rollins and Cressie watch Andy in the park and see Katie approach Andy. She makes eye contact with Andy and runs away. Cressie catches her and she is brought to the station.
