The Wire (Late Editions)
Snoop: "How my hair look, Mike?"
Mike:"It look good, girl."
Mike shoots Snoop in the head and calmly exits out of the vehicle into the night. Snoop, who had planned to set Mike up and kill him on that same night, was smoked. And I loved it b/c I never liked her character. Both she and Chris were cold blooded killers. And they had taught Mike to become the same. They schooled him and advised him that he needed "to get to the scene early" before taking care of business. Well...her plans backfired as Mike realized that she was plotting to kill him. Before he blasted her, she told him that Marlo thought that he snitched on the crew. He didn't but he knew that he had to kill Snoop. He knows that he's wanted on the streets. He dropped his lil brutha off at his aunt's house. He also distanced himself from his good friend Dukie. The streets are watching. Hopefully, he has enough sense to get outta town.
Lester puts the clocks to work and is able to nab Marlo and all of his goons. The classic scene was when Marlo, Cheese, Monk, and Chris were all locked up together discussing the charges that they faced. Monk "accidentally" tells Marlo about what's being said about him in the streets. When he advises him that Omar, who is now dead, was talking shyt about him...Marlo becomes enraged about how his "name" is being carried on the streets. Little does he know, Omar was calling him all kinds of mfs and punks. LOL. After seeing the previews for the series finale, Marlo ends up back on the street. I'm not sure how it happens. Maybe they get out on the fact that Lester ran an illegal wire on Marlo's cell phone? Whatever the case is...next week can't come any sooner.
Good to see Naymond, the son of Wee Bay and now stepson of Bunny Colvin, doing very well. Also good to see Colvin stiff the mayor. LOL
Gus is about to really find out what kinda skunk Templeton is. I like Gus. He's "scratchin' a itch."
It don't look good for McNulty. I've been saying it for weeks. The previews for next week don't seem to be in his favor either.
Herc has a BIG MOUTH. He's playing both sides of the fence with his boy Carver and Levy.
Keema! She just couldn't keep her damn mouth shut could she? I knew if there would be SOMEBODY who would tell...it'd be her. Damn, Keema. Your big mouth is about to ruin it for errrrybody. McNulty should have known better than to tell her. Some women can't keep secrets (and y'all know I'm right)
Bubbles is clean. Literally and figuratively.
The 90-minute finale of HBO's The Wire won't be available in advance of the March 9 cable channel premiere date, a spokesman for HBO said.
Unlike the way in which the previous nine episodes this season could be seen On Demand starting the Monday before each Sunday airdate, viewers will have to wait to until 9 p.m. March 9 to see how it all ends with the Baltimore-based drama after five seasons.
HBO says the move is being made so that On Demand viewers don't "spoil" the pleasure of those fans who plan to wait until the Sunday-night HBO cablecast.
And you have to admit there was no shortage of On Demand fans -- folks who are quick to pledge their undying love of the series and sense of community with other viewers -- who went online after the death of a certain larger than life villain in episode 8 and blabbed it all over the place.
