Episode Summary

EDIT

"The king stay the king." - D'Angelo
After early morning "field interviews" conducted by Herc, Carver and Prez lead to a minor riot and bad publicity for the police, Daniels gets called in by the Deputy Commissioner. McNulty sends Mahone and Polk to the terrace to get a photo of Avon Barksdale. They come up short, but soft-spoken Freamon comes through with an old photo from Barksdale's boxing days. McNulty and Greggs visit FBI agent Fitzhugh to try and obtain some surveillance equipment. D'Angelo delivers the daily count to Stringer Bell, who in turn gives D'Angelo a bonus. Later, while Bodie and D'Angelo wait for the new supply to arrive, D'Angelo offers to get food. While he's gone, Bodie, Stinkum and the crew go to retrieve the new supply; only, renegade dealer Omar and his crew get there and steal the drugs for themselves. The next day, D'Angelo gets chewed out by Wee Bey - a Barksdale enforcer -for not being around when the incident happened. After getting chided by his superiors, Lieutenant Daniels mobilizes the team to raid "The Pit." Bodie hits one of the detectives while getting arrested and the rest of the officers proceed to beat Bodie. McNulty secretly meets with agent Fitzhugh, who tells him to watch out for Lieutenant Daniels - who might be on the take.
