The more interesting unresolved plot for me is will McNulty/Lester pull their shit off. I think no, they get caught but it gets buried in the department or at city hall because the ends justified the means (funding for the cops/something for Carcetti to run on). I think both lose their jobs and pensions, and then branch out to a show on CBS where they solve murders using advanced forensic evidence in a sexy locale.


i can't imagine Simon would sign off on anything Wire-related moving to cable.

as for McNulty/Lester, i don't think they'll get away with what they're doing but i really hope Kima isn't the one who dimes them out.


The CBS line was a joke sir.

Yeah for Kima to do that would be weak, but someone needs to have some morals this season. I would rather it be done for that reason than a pissed off hack detective diming because he didn't get some weak shit approved from McNulty.

my bad, and true...also, i'm curious if anything will ever come of the dirt that's out there on Daniels...the part of plot where he was supposed to unseat Rawls has been pretty quiet for a while now.


I think that Rawls will be the one takes the fall for the investigation, since Carcetti is looking for a reason to promote Daniels anyway.

I knew that little shit was upto no good!Fuck , I really wanted Omar to at least take out Chris or Snoop.This was the first time that I saw those 2 cold blooded mofos actually worried about something . Omar's dying all alone and Beadies little speech to Mcnulty had a lot of parallels ...

The FBI guys profile matching Mcnultys profile and seeing him getting a little hot under the collar was hilarious .Also, nice to see Poot back . They are bringing back all the old characters ..Nicky Sobotka a few episodes back , and I also saw Prez in one of the promos . So there might be hope for Dookie afterall . I still don't know how they'll wrap everything up in 2 episodes . Oh and i hope that fuck Scott Templeton gets fired , he is the one character on the show that I hate .And the guy twho plays Gus needs to be on more shows , he is fantastic.

Got this forwarded to me...another example of why everything is shown in the wire for a reason:


Ok- need some help here. Flashback to Season 3, episode 3:

"Omar, along with his soldiers Dante, Tosha and Kimmy, case another Barksdale stash house, making plans to take it out. But when they return later to pull off the heist, things go terribly wrong. Barksdale soldiers in another part of the house are alerted to the robbery and open fire. In the fierce shootout that follows, Tosha is shot in the head and killed, accidentally by Dante, and one of Barksdale's team is killed. Bell is furious when he learns that Omar is still intent on pursuing revenge. Speaking of Tosha, he says, "We're gonna cover that girl's wake, her funeral, everything." Back home, Omar apologizes to his soldiers, who are depressed and angry. "Don't do nothing for me," Kimmy tells him sullenly."

Later in the episode, Bunk goes to canvas the crime scene and a group of kids are playing around, pretending to be Omar.

"Bunk is also dismayed when he notices African American children pretending to be Omar seeing them act out the shooting."

Is this kid Kenard?

Kenard's IMDB page doesn't have him listed as being in Season 3, but it ain't a stretch.

Sure looks like him.

One interesting take I read recently compares Omar to Achilles, based on Simon's classification of The Wire as Greek tragedy. Makes a lot of sense. Both were warriors who made vows to retire from combat, but came out of retirement to avenge the murders of friends (Marlo's people's killing of Butchie; Hector's killing of Patroclus). Both were killed by opponents who were nowhere near their equals in combat (Kenard; Paris). Both were teh ghey.

The main difference is that Omar didn't kill Marlo, while Achilles did kill Hector.

I think Rawls being found out as gay will some how get everyone out of this homeless murder plot. It would fit that someone spots him and yet again holds information over the brass to get what they want.

As for the drug angle. Seems like it is setup to end like season 2-- the "Greeks" press on and the dealers fight over the corners. Whether that leaves Marlo in jail or dead, I don't know. Looks like Chris will either go to jail or be taken out. And Slim Charles seems poised to step up after backing down so often.

I'm 99 % sure that is Kenard by the way.

Slim Charles said it himself-- he ain't no CEO. If anybody is going to take over, it's going to be another Marlo-type who seemingly comes out of nowhere. Or Avon. :mrgreen:

I can see it ending in a coda about all the bodies piling up in a new war to take over Baltimore's drug trade. Cut that with Carcetti winning governor and forgetting about Baltimore as he turns his eyes to Washington, and you got a cynical ending that would fit well within the philosophy of the Wire.

Doesn't matter who takes over. Doesn't matter if the players are known to us or not. That's not the point of the show. The game is the game. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Bring Marlo down, and the killing will start again to crown the new king.

Interesting take on Omar. Also that looks like Kenard to me, and given the nature of the show it wouldn't be surprising.

I have been enjoying the cameos from old characters...Avon, Cutty, Sergei, Poot, Royce, Nick Sabotka. No Bunny Colvin and Namond yet. Them and Presbo are due to make an appearance. I could also go for a Wee-bey appearance.

Episode 59 Spoilers Start Here...........

A monster of an episode. So much happened towards the end there. A lot of emotion, a few hard scenes in there, more of the loose ends getting wrapped up.

RIP Snoop...I felt briefly for her. She went out gracefully (almost like Prop Joe), but she had it coming. Michael learned well and he was always cold and smart enough to figure that one out.

Bubbles in his finest hour. Its nice to see that it looks like his character will end on a positive note.

Bug - poor kid. I felt for him.

Dukie - I felt for him too. Also its interesting to see the Bubbles in him coming out.

Lester working Clay was good. Interesting to see the drug lords portrayed as targets. Also the Levy having the leak angle was interesting. Rekindles the idea that it might really be Rhonda or Phelan.

Kima doing McNulty...Wow. We saw the setup there, but in some ways I was surprised she went through with it. I guess I just liked McNulty too much to want to see him get caught.

Bunny and Namond...you knew they were getting their cameos. I loved the way he gave Carcetti shit. If you saw the previews then you know our final cameo from characters past.

Did you notice Levy eyeing the rolodex as he talked to Herc about Marlo getting caught? Wonder if anything comes out of that.

On a lighter note...Lester Freamon is in the mood for love.

I do feel that we are going to get a hell of an ending. Seems like this will be an HBO show that gives a satisfying conclusion.

Why the fuck did Herk even open his mouth? Marlo gets off.

No word on who those white guys were doing the re-supply? If Freeman is on his game, he's busting on that. Instead he's getting drunk and fucking his stripper wife. Out of character. Same for Kima doing both Jimmy and Freeman. Great episode though. Snoop going down was great and Marlo's "My Name Was In The Streets!" will go down as one of the best scenes of the series for me.
