Detective Jimmy McNulty finds the body of a woman floating in the water while carrying out his new assignment of Harbor Patrol. Major Valchek has his gift to a local parish trumped by Frank Sobotka, his rival in the local stevedores union. And on the waterfront, a shipping container destined for 'The Greek' bakes in the sun with perishable cargo. Written by

The Russian passport in the season 2 opening credits contains one line in legitimate Cyrillic ("Fedorovskal" -- possibly intended as "Fedorovskaya") and two lines of gibberish ("Dovlashch" and "Lshchtvkfyrsht"). The words "Soyuz Sovietsnikh [sic]" -- part of the Russian name of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics - are also visible, though the series is set more than a decade after the USSR dissolved and though the upper half of the passport reads, in English, "Republic of Russia."
