Storyline

Carcetti speaks to Daniels about the police department, sounding him out on his opinion of Burrell and Rawls, and offering him a promotion to CID commander, whilst Burrell and Rawls turn on one another. Poot returns to Bodie's corner after his stint in prison. Bunk secures Omar's release. Carcetti experiences his first conflict since winning the election - a budget battle with Council President Nerese Campbell, who reveals she was planning on taking over as mayor after Royce. As Carcetti, Wilson and Watkins strategize on how to get rid of Burrell, Herc continues to try to pressure Marlo into returning his camera, with Bubbles leading him to a possible witness, and Herc promising to return the favor by protecting him from his attacker. In Tilghman Middle School, Prez and Randy enter a business arrangement, and Colvin offers an incentive to the pilot program students, but the results are not what he expected. Meanwhile, Prop Joe ingratiates himself with Marlo by alerting him to the fact... Written by Bertaut
