The episode is the first part of the three-part Ricochet storyline.
16-year-old Stevie is drawn into the Farmead Crew by his half-brother Kris, despite the positive influence of his beloved grandmother.
Forced to prove his loyalty to the gang, Stevie is persuaded by leader Anton to shoot at a rival drug dealer to warn him off their turf. But the shooting goes wrong and a small boy is caught in the crossfire. With Stevie violently punished by the gang for messing up, the gang members spill into the ED, attracting the attention of Superintendent Yvonne Rippon.
As Jordan and his team battle to save the young gun victim, Yvonne suspects gang-related violence and interrogates Stevie. Under the concerned eye of Lloyd, Stevie insists his injuries are accidental. But how long before he cracks and tells the truth...
