Synopsis by Josh Ralske
Omar (Michael K. Williams) makes a compelling witness against Bird (Sticky Fingaz). The special detail discovers that destitute IBS has paid a lot of money to political action committees. Shardene (Wendy Grantham) helps the cops find strippers from Eastern Europe. Another dancer tells them that those girls are always under heavy guard. On the docks, the cops learn that the container full of dead girls was never entered into the computer system by a checker. Further investigation reveals that the same checker was responsible for several cans that disappeared in the same manner. They decide their best bet is to clone the dock's computers and watch what's going on in real time. Bunk (Wendell Pierce) and Freamon (Clarke Peters) try to convince Daniels (Lance Reddick) to fold the murder investigation into his detail on Sobotka (Chris Bauer), but Daniels is worried that the murders won't get solved. Nick (Pablo Schreiber) goes to Vondas (Paul Ben-Victor) for help with Ziggy's (James Ransone) problems with Cheese (Method Man). Sergei (Chris Ashworth) gets Proposition Joe's (Robert F. Chew) help to lean on the dealer. McNulty (Dominic West) convinces his estranged wife, Elena (Callie Thorne), to go out to dinner with him, and tells her he's planning to retire. D'Angelo (Larry Gilliard, Jr.) makes it clear that he wants to serve his time in peace, and wants nothing further to do with Avon (Wood Harris) and his dirty dealings.
