Episode Info

Herc (Dominick Lombardozzi) and Carver (Seth Gilliam) try to convince the local corner boys to relocate, as per Colvin's (Robert Wisdom) orders. "Vincent Street is your Amsterdam in Baltimore," Herc tells them, but they're not interested, so Colvin has them rounded up and brought to a local school gym so that he can tell them about his plan. They're unresponsive. Kima (Sonja Sohn) and McNulty (Dominic West) continue to disobey Daniels' (Lance Reddick) orders, hiring Bubbles (Andre Royo) to look around and tell them what happened to Avon's (Wood Harris) people after the towers came down. Bubs tells them about the strangely cooperative mood on the street, and about how the dealers are all using disposable cell phones, called "burners," these days. McNulty also tracks Stringer (Idris Elba) on his own, and learns that Stringer is cleaning up his act, at least on the surface, through his real estate dealings. Lester (Clarke Peters) attacks McNulty for disrespecting Daniels. "This may not be perfect," he tells McNulty, "but it's a chance to be police." Carcetti (Aidan Gillen) is considering a run for mayor. He meets with an old acquaintance, Terri D'Agostino (Brandy Burre), who is now a successful political consultant. "You're the wrong color," she tells Carcetti. "You're not electable." Carcetti is not deterred. Cutty (Chad L. Coleman), increasingly frustrated with straight life, pays a visit to Slim Charles (Anwan Glover) looking for work. McNulty pays a late night drunken visit to Rhonda (Deirdre Lovejoy) and finds that she's otherwise engaged. Stringer finally looks in on Donette (Shamyl Brown), who tells him about McNulty's stated suspicion that D'Angelo was murdered.
