Episode Synopsis

Colvin attends the weekly comstat meeting, when another Major is fired as a result of Carcetti’s pressure to reduce crime. Carcetti then uses the press to defer heat from the police department onto the mayor, to test his tenacity. Colvin looks for areas where he can turn a blind eye to drug dealing, unbeknownst to his superiors. Omar and his crew scope out a Barksdale stash house, and decide to attack it despite its heavy fortifications. A shootout ensues, with deaths on both sides. When the Major Case Unit is instructed to pursue a new, unrelated target McNulty refuses to divert his attention from the Barksdale Organization.

 

Cutty visits an old flame. Bodie’s crew are beaten for encroaching on Marlo Stanfield’s territory.
