McNulty has his sons play the game of "front and follow" with Stringer Bell as the target at a local market. Greggs and Carver bust a driver picking up a suspiciously large amount of cash from the Towers.

Meanwhile, Avon finds out about Orlando's inquiries about branching out into "dirty" business, and makes it clear to Orlando that the plan will never happen.

Epigraph--"Come at the king, you best not miss". - Omar 

Omar uses this phrase while taunting Wee-Bey after shooting Stinkum.

Goofs: When McNulty is monitoring Stringer's car, the car is on the same side of the road, facing away from McNulty's car. The next shot shows Stringer being dropped off by a taxi next to his car. Stringer's car is now on the opposite side of the road, facing towards McNulty.

  • When Det. Freamon is showing Kima pictures of the strippers, one photo is labeled Department of Motor Vehicles and referred as a "DMV" photo, but Maryland does not have a Department of Motor Vehicles, instead it has a Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA).
