While Greggs' life hangs in the balance, the entire department attempts to hunt down Savino. When Wallace flips, willing to testify that Stringer, Wee-Bey and Bird killed Brandon, Daniels stashes him in his grandmother's house on the outskirts of the city, but he soon becomes restless. Stringer tells Wee-Bey he needs to get out of Baltimore until the Savino investigation cools off, whilst Avon considers his next move. When McNulty and Pearlman try to pressure Levy into giving up Savino, he proves smarter than they gave him credit for. Meanwhile, when the detail's hand is forced, and a series of city-wide raids are ordered so as to appease Burrell's desire for "dope on the table," McNulty goes to see Phelan for help, but is surprised at his reaction. Daniels decides not to raid the main Barksdale stash house, but when word of his plan gets back to Burrell, he realizes there is a snitch in the detail. Elsewhere, Bubbles finds it increasingly difficult to stay clean. Written by

When Bay teaches D to look after his many large tropical fish tanks, he points out his "tetras". He then gives them names and describes their romantic attachments. The fish in the tank look nothing like tetras. They are 3-spot gouramis. Male gouramis go after the females fattest with the most eggs. They not in the least monogamous. It is not an error, but Bay's tanks have kitschy ceramic sleeping Beauty castles in them. The rest of the equipment looks advanced and high tech. It jars that he seems to be cross between a 7 year old girl and a professional aquarist, but then I have no idea what thugs' aquariums look like in reality. Perhaps the idea is to show what an adult with a 7-year old mind would create with thousands of dollars to spend. See more

Check it out, Dee. I need you to feed 'em while I'm gone. You gonna give 'em different food for each tank, too, alright? But don't worry, I'm gonna show ya what to do, c'mere. These are my tetras. You got Kimmy, Alex, Aubrey and Jezebel in here somewhere. I don't know, she think she cute. You take two pinches of whatever food I got next to each tank. They set for the day. You see, they ain't no problems. Just beautiful as hell, Dee. I'm gonna go upstairs, and pack some shit.
