After Greggs (Sonja Sohn) is shot, Major Rawls (John Doman) shows up at the chaotic crime scene and takes charge. The cops determine that there were two shooters. Carver (Seth Gilliam) agrees to inform Greggs' girlfriend, Cheryl (Melanie Nicholls-King). Wee-Bey (Hassan Johnson) pages Stringer (Idris Elba) to say one word: "Done." Rawls chews out McNulty (Dominic West), who's too wracked with guilt to work the case. The cops try to find Savino (Christopher J. Clanton), who set up the buy. Wee-Bey meets with Stringer, who gives him the bad news -- "Shorty was a cop" -- and lets him know he has to leave town. Freamon (Clarke Peters) finds evidence at the payphone from which Stringer was paged. Wallace (Michael B. Jordan) keeps calling Poot (Tray Chaney) because he's homesick. Bubbles (Andre Royo) pages Greggs, and is immediately picked up by the police. When an angry homicide detective beats on Bubbles for information, he asks for McNulty. He gives Bubbles the bad news about Greggs, and sends him back to the projects to gather info. Avon (Wood Harris) chastises Stringer for his handling of Orlando. McNulty threatens Levy (Michael Kostroff), Avon's lawyer, to get him to turn over Savino, and chastises Rhonda (Deirdre Lovejoy) for worrying about Levy's influence and her career. "Everybody stays friends; everybody gets paid," he harangues her, "and everybody's got a f__king future." Prez (Jim True-Frost) figures out that it was Wee-Bey who paged Stringer. Savino turns himself in, but they only have enough evidence to charge him with fraud. The police commissioner orders drug raids citywide in response to the shooting, and when Daniels (Lance Reddick) tries to hold back on the main stash, he catches hell from Burrell (Frankie R. Faison), and realizes there's a spy in the unit.
