Synopsis by Josh Ralske
The season finale of the second season of The Wire begins as Nick (Pablo Schreiber) sees his uncle's body pulled from the water at the docks. He wants revenge, but his father (Robert Hogan) convinces him to turn himself in to the police. Herc (Dominick Lombardozzi) and Carver (Seth Gilliam) continue to stake out Nick's house, and are furious when they learn they weren't informed that Nick was in custody. Daniels (Lance Reddick) convinces Valchek(Al Brown) to let Prez back into the unit -- if he writes a letter of apology to everyone who witnessed their blow-up. When they hear that Sobotka's body came up, Vondas (Paul Ben-Victor) and The Greek (Bill Raymond) make plans to skip town, leaving a huge drug shipment sitting uncollected on the docks. Nick tells the cops everything he knows, and is offered the same deal his uncle would have gotten. A headless, handless corpse is identified as the sailor who went missing at the port in Philly, and surveillance video from that night shows Sergei (Chris Ashworth) abducting the man. Sergei decides to cooperate, giving the unit one last shot at The Greek. The feds have all the dirt that they need on the union. Agent Fitzhugh (Doug Olear) realizes that the leak to The Greek came from within the FBI. Brother Mouzone (Michael Potts) rejects Stringer's (Idris Elba) offer to deal with the person who shot him. Avon (Wood Harris) doesn't seem pleased with how Stringer is running things, but finally gives him permission to make a deal with Proposition Joe (Robert F. Chew). Thanks to a tip from Bubbles (Andre Royo), McNulty (Dominic West) and Greggs (Sonja Sohn) find out that Proposition Joe and Stringer are working together.
