The veteran crime drama concludes its 16th season. In the final episode, police hunt a pair of home invaders who brutally murdered an innocent family. ADA Borgia becomes the latest victim when she is kidnapped by the killers, leading to a desperate search. Detectives Green and Fontana respond when four members of the Andreas family are murdered in their apartment. The victims were tied up and asphyxiated by their killers, who managed to enter the flat without the use of force. The husband of the family, Frank Andreas, is missing. The cops learn that he was recently arrested for selling stolen NYPD equipment – including fake police shields. Green wonders if the killers pretended to be policemen in order to gain entry to the apartment. “A lot of these home-invasion crews pose as cops,” he says. “We’re thinking Andreas might have been supplying them.” The detectives learn from ADA Borgia that Andreas was released on bail in return for his help in tracing the killers of three men shot dead in another home invasion. “He said he would work his contacts on the street – come up with their names,” she says. The home invaders must have found out that Andreas was cooperating with the authorities and killed his family in retribution. When Andreas is finally located, he supplies the cops with the first names of the two suspects – Ricky and Vincent. However, he claims not to know their surnames or where they could be hiding. Andreas admits that he made the killers two fake police badges copied from a real shield, but he does not know how they acquired it.
