Episode cast overview, first billed only:
D'Angelo Barksdale (as Larry Gilliard Jr.)
Domenick Lombardozzi ...


With Greggs in the hospital on life support, the police pull out all of the stops in searching for the shooters. They start by bringing in the go-between who led Orlando and Greggs into the trap but find they actually have little to charge him with. McNulty is blaming himself for all that's happened and Major Rawls is surprisingly supportive of him. Greggs' fellow officers are all keen to find her killers but the Commissioner wants to stage huge raids, including one on the recently discovered stash house. Daniels and McNulty realize that someone in the squad is feeding information to the Deputy Chief. D'Angelo thinks he's had it when Stringer sends him off on an errand with Wee-Bay. Wallace meanwhile is living at his grandmother's but is staying in contact with his friends the pit. Written by garykmcd

The corner that Greggs gets shot at shows the street signs "Longwood St" and "North Warwick Av". Although both Streets exist in West Baltimore, they never intersect. Although the show stays close to facts concerning the scenery in Baltimore, it might be intended to not give a too specific crime scene. See more »


Lt. Daniels tells McNulty of Kima's medical condition, including that she has had a "trach", but in the final scene of Kima in the ICU, she is clearly intubated orally (in her mouth). Once a patient has had a tracheotomy, it would continue to be used during that course of treatment. See more »

Dope on the table
30 April 2009 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

Usually we get to see Jay Landsman only in the office, usually making fun, just being annoying with other detectives but here we see him working, looking for clues and certainly is in the crime scene where Orlando was killed and Greggs was shot where Landsman, Bunk and other men are doing their job. So we have the people from homicide on one hand and on the other we have Lester and Prez.

Wee-Bey and Little Man: the shooters completed successfully the job however there's this girl that disconcerted them. Wee-Bey will get the worst possible news from Stringer: that girl was a cop and worst for them she is still alive. Little Man was the one who shot Greggs so there's another job for Wee-Bey who will be in Philadelphia but not before he indicates to D'Angelo what to do with his fishes (a truly great scene with D'Angelo thinking in the worst and finally finding that all was just a fish matter).

Burrell wants to act, he wants dope on the table and again he is f****** the investigation. Our detectives found a stash house previously, now when Burrell orders for dope on the table their plan is to attack in other places but the stash house however Burrell will order to go for the main source allowing to Daniels, McNulty and Lester to finally realize that there's someone in the detail that says everything to Burrell, Daniels stopped doing that so who's the rat? We will find that but here what about our main guy McNulty? Well, is McNulty feeling guilty (Rawls said just about right) but of course the show must go on and here is again f****** Levy doing it nicely.
