Andy began her day covering up the fact that Nick showed up for work drunk. She hid him in a side room to sober him up. Andy contacted the desk sergeant that her partner is calling in sick for the day. She also force fed him some muffins Chris baked to help absorb some of the alcohol. At the game, Andy's prisoner ended up being a pretty decent guy. He also happens to be the one with the gun being held on him in booking. Andy pawns the guy off on Chris to deal with Nick. She wasn't in booking at the time the hostage situation developed.
Chris began his shift late for parade because his ex, Denise, showed up in the lobby with a son he never knew he had. His name is Christian. He's two and a half. Chris is visibly flustered by this bomb that's just been dropped on him. He's not at the top of his game as the three football brawlers are brought into booking. Chris tosses two guys in the same cell while he attempted to get things in order. That never happened.
The suspect with the gun only wanted to talk to Chris. The guy is panicked. He doesn't want to go back to prison since he has a baby on the way. BANG! The suspect shoots his hostage in the arm to prove he's serious. Chris assures the guy that they are going to find a way out of this together. He moves to get his cell phone so the man can call his wife. BANG! A sniper's gunshot rips into the cell striking the gunman in the head. He's dead before Chris knows what happened.
