Storyline

D'Angelo speaks to Wallace, who tells him he wants to go back to school and get out of the Game. However, Malik "Poot" Carr discovers Wallace has started using cocaine to help him deal with his guilt over Brandon. Freamon gets Sydnor and Prez started on the complex Barksdale money trail, including possible political connections, and they are surprised to find Avon's corporations have been buying up vacant buildings in run-down parts of the city. Greggs and Freamon approach D'Angelo's girlfriend, Shardene Ennis, who works at Orlando's, in the hopes they can turn her into a CI. After Bubbles narrowly avoids a beating whilst stealing a package that turns out to be stepped on, he decides to try to get clean. Avon and Eastside kingpin Proposition Joe Stewart stage an East vs. West basketball game, but when the detail follow Avon afterwards, they get something they never expected. Meanwhile, Omar puts into motion a plan to gain revenge for Brandon's death. Written by Bertaut

Terrell: Omar, you best roll out. We up in here with a Mac-10.
Omar Little: I thinks not, Terrell. I thinks not. Y'all might need to think this through and stop wasting my time. 'Cause Omar can come back tomorrow. And the next day. And the next day. And I will put a bullet in all y'all behind what happen right now, you heard?
