Synopsis by Josh Ralske
The detail, with help from the FBI, raids the smuggling operations, but most of the evidence has already been cleaned up. While they bust White Mike (Brook Yeaton), Sergei (Chris Ashworth), and Eton, and find a stash of cash and heroin at Nick's (Pablo Schreiber) place, they leave Vondas (Paul Ben-Victor) on the street, hoping he'll lead them to The Greek (Bill Raymond). Sobotka (Chris Bauer) is also taken in, and Valchek (Al Brown) takes great pleasure in slapping the cuffs on him personally. When Daniels (Lance Reddick) finds out about the murder charge against Ziggy (James Ransone), he chews out Landsman (Delaney Williams) for not keeping him informed. They could have gotten valuable evidence from the murder scene before it was cleaned out. White Mike agrees to cooperate, but he only knows so much. Frank gets bailed out, and goes to see Ziggy, who's not doing well in prison. Russell (Amy Ryan) tails Vondas to a hotel, but the detail loses him when he wisely changes cars. Nick, now a fugitive, meets with Vondas, who tells him that in exchange for his and his uncle's loyalty, the Greeks can arrange to have a witness testify that Ziggy's murder was committed in self-defense. Sobotka, desperate to save the union from the disgrace he's caused, is ready to sacrifice himself and tell the cops everything, but when Nick tells him about the offer, he agrees to meet with The Greek to hear him out. Meanwhile, Stringer (Idris Elba), looking for a third party to deal with Avon's unwanted muscle, has a tense meeting with Omar (Michael K. Williams), and tries to convince him that Brother Mouzone (Michael Potts) was the one who tortured Brandon.
