Episode Info

The detail hooks up GPS units to the cars of several operatives in the smuggling operation. Using this high-tech equipment, McNulty (Dominic West) discovers two locations -- a run-down diner and the remote Fort Howard Park, where the smugglers seem to congregate. The detail sets up surveillance, hoping to get a glimpse of the boss, who they think is Vondas (Paul Ben-Victor). Valchek (Al Brown) tries to undercut the detail by going straight to the FBI and handing them the case against Sobotka (Chris Bauer). The FBI decides to pursue a RICO case against the union, but also assists the detail's efforts to nab the smugglers. This isn't good enough for Valchek, who chews out Daniels for turning against him, and tries to pull Prez (Jim True-Frost) from the unit. Prez doesn't go quietly. At the towers, Bodie (J.D. Williams) has new product, and business is booming, but then Stringer (Idris Elba) shows up to tell his crew that they're to allow dealers from the East Side, including Cheese (Method Man), access to their turf. The rivalry is held in check by Stringer's orders, until Avon's enforcer from New York, Brother Mouzone (Michael Potts), shows up. Mouzone is not to be messed with, but Proposition Joe knows one guy who might be able to deal with him. Ziggy (James Ransone) loses it completely when he's underpaid for a shipment of stolen cars. He arranges a meeting between Stringer and Omar (Michael K. Williams). The Greek's (Bill Raymond) FBI contact, Agent Koutris (Tom Mardirosian), soon learns about the wiretaps, and shares that information. The Greek orders all operations shut down, and when the cops find this out through an intercepted text message, they race to get their paperwork in order for a raid before all the evidence is cleaned up.
