Episode Synopsis

McNulty goes back to his old drinking and womanizing ways after failing to win his wife back.

The detail closes in on Sergei Malatov when they track his cell phone through his truck rental paperwork.

Frank becomes suspicious when the phone company says his account has been “flagged”. He smuggles a clean container to see what happens, and his suspicions mount when the Port Police pulls the container over.

Frank and Nick visit the diner to tell The Greek; The Greek tells him to deliver more disappeared but clean containers to the shutdown warehouse and lay low for the time being.

With business down on their corners, Bodie decides to move into some new territory.
