In the early 1990s, Boston was rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm - and then it all changed in what was called the "Boston Miracle". In this fictional account, Assistant District Attorney Decourcy Ward comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rohr. Together, they take on a family of armored car robbers in a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston.
After seeing Holly in the ICU, Jackie reckons with the destructive consequences of his actions, as Rickey Townsend prepares to testify against Decourcy. With violence intensifying between the Copeland Crew and the Braxton Boys, Decourcy, Anton and Siobhan face off in the interrogation room. Grace, left reflecting on her role as a mother and leader in the community, makes an unfortunate miscalculation. And back at the Rohr house, Jenny makes fast friends with the mysterious woman from Belfast.
As U.S. Attorney Karen Shimizu tries to get rid of her troublesome agent once and for all, Jackie schemes his way into a new mission. At the Suffolk County Courthouse, Decourcy and Siobhan spar on opposing sides of a legal battle. Meeting dead-ends at every turn in the effort to help her son, Grace does something desperate. With a nudge from Maeve, Jenny surprises Benny with some rebellious fun. On the other side of town, Cathy re-ups her supply by going straight to the source.
With Anton on the lam, Kelvin struggles to lead the Braxton Boys and Jackie homes in on Grace. He knows she's hiding something. Sidelined from the investigation, Decourcy finds himself at a disconnect with Siobhan, as he seeks vengeance and she focuses on recovery. When Cathy's arrangement with Isaac falls through, she pays a reluctant visit to old friends for help. Jenny, meanwhile, finally uncovers the truth about her new friend.
Assuming the involvement of the Campbell brothers at the Copeland territory shootout, Jackie confronts Grace, who can no longer sidestep her sons' criminal activity. She is forced to make a terrible compromise. Resenting the outcome of a negotiation that he could not take part in, Decourcy finds comfort in the strength of Siobhan, who keeps her head even after tragedy strikes. Jenny insists on helping Maeve, whether or not that means defying Jackie.
As Boston mourns another loss, Decourcy pursues justice in and out of the courtroom. Despite his maneuvering, Jackie discovers that he can't escape his past, while Jenny decides to finally confront hers. Cathy says goodbye to the root of her struggles. Siobhan sets her sights on a new dream.
