Storyline

Cutty continues to mentor Michael whilst also taking work as a truant officer for Tilghman Middle School. Greggs and Freamon leave the MCU in disgust at Marimow's agenda, with both heading to homicide, where Burrell assigns Greggs to the murdered witness case, hoping her lack of homicide experience will stall the investigation until after the election, whilst Freamon joins Bunk in trying to find Fruit's killer. The newly promoted Sgt. Herc and Det. Rick Dozerman (Rick Otto) are transferred to the MCU, and Herc is thrilled to learn the unit is going back to taking doors. Bubbles continues to pressure Sherrod into attending school. Bodie reluctantly agrees to sell Marlo's package, as Chris and Snoop continue to assess Michael as a potential soldier. When Marlo turns down the offer to join the New Day, Prop Joe turns Omar onto a high stakes poker game in which he plays. Colvin and Prof. David Peranti (Dan DeLuca) begin an academic study of at-risk children. Written by Bertaut
