EPISODE:

Episode Info

Bodie (J.D. Williams) and Poot (Tray Chaney) get into a gunfight to protect some turf, and a child is killed by a stray bullet, bringing a tremendous amount of police presence to the area, and angering Stringer (Idris Elba). Stringer tells Bodie to get rid of all the guns his crew used during the shoot-out, but Bodie screws up, bringing more unwanted police attention. Stringer also wants to trade real estate for product with Proposition Joe (Robert F. Chew), and sends Brianna (Michael Wyatt) to make his case with Avon. Meanwhile, the dock detail realizes that they must have tipped their hand, as the smuggling seem to have shut down. Their patience pays off when they intercept a call from Sergei (Chris Ashworth) saying they'll resume operations soon. They're also listening when Sergei tells a drug dealing associate how they dispose of their bodies and Freamon (Clarke Peters) uses that information to look for unsolved murders that could be linked to the group. A friend in the FBI, Agent Koutris (Tom Mardirosian of Oz), tells The Greek (Bill Raymond) that someone (McNulty's FBI contact) called asking about one of his associates, Double G. The Greek repays him by telling him about a shipment of chemicals meant for the Colombians, who have been underpaying for their shipments. Angry at being left out of Nick's (Pablo Schreiber) drug business, Ziggy (James Ransone) makes a deal to sell stolen cars to Double G. McNulty (Dominic West) goes undercover as a British tourist to help bust the brothel that uses smuggled Eastern European girls. Valchek (Al Brown) blows his stack when he learns that Sobotka (Chris Bauer) is now only a minor player in the investigation he started.
