Detail office. Kima and McNulty have apparently just finished catching Daniels up on the murders Rawls wants McNulty to move on; Kima's saying that Daniels could go to Burrell, via Foerster. Daniels bitterly asks why McNulty's coming to him instead of Phelan. McNulty says that he doesn't think a judge could talk a city Homicide commander out of closing three murders: "It's put up or shut up time, Lieutenant," he concludes, impatiently. "Either you step up or you send us all home." "So this is on me?" says Daniels, with quiet fury. "I don't see anyone else in charge of this detail," spits McNulty. It's kind of surprising that he doesn't just get punched in the face, like, daily. "Rawls is a major," says Daniels quietly. "Rawls is an asshole," McNulty counters. Daniels's point is that he's outranked here. McNulty turns to Kima and snorts, pointedly, Daniels having acted as McNulty said he would. Daniels: "Chain of command might mean nothing to you, McNulty." He doesn't finish the sentence, though I guess he doesn't really have to. He leaves, and McNulty falls heavily into a chair, asking Kima, "What'd I tell you?" Kima, upset to have someone she respects disappoint her that way, can't quite meet McNulty's eye.
