Storyline 1: The Cops

The team arrive at their new offices – the ringing phone. “It’s for McNulty”

We meet Prez – who discharges a firearm into a wall.

Kima, Herc and Carver start collating intel with Bubbles and a red hat.

McNulty and Bunk pursue the witness’ murder case and put the heat on D’Angelo.

The witness’ murder hits the front page – we don’t know who told the journalists, but the judge is quoted.

Storyline 2: The Dealers

D’Angelo gets picked up by McNulty and Bunk and cracks in the interrogation room. We see his softer side.

Later, we meet his girlfriend and child, and he gets a gentle talking-to from good ol’ uncle Avon.

Storyline3: Herc, Carver and Prez

These three stupendous idiots get drunk and decide to go to the towers and cause shit. They humiliate some people, Prez pistol-whips a 14-year-old who later goes blind, they get shot at and their car gets burned out.

Daniels rips them a new one, while also defending them and encourages them to get their stories straight for IA.
