Storyline

Greggs comes out of her coma and manages to identify one of the shooters. She won't play the game of fingering the second shooter, because she didn't see him. The police are rounding up the lower echelons of Barksdale's distribution empire. Bunk and Daniels visit D'Angelo in his New Jersey jail to see what information they might get from him about the murders. He's ready to tell them what he knows but a visit from his mother, Avon's sister, changes his mind. With their investigation coming to an end, McNulty suggests that they take what they have to Feds and Daniels agrees. They don't like what hey hear however. Daniels identifies the snitch in his unit who has been keeping the Deputy Chief informed of their activities. McNulty has a meeting Major Rawls who tells him of his fate. Written by garykmcd

Pretty rewarding first season...
16 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This finale of The Wire tied up many plot points, but it's pretty difficult to review the finale without reviewing the entire first season. so...

The Wire's first season was pretty great. I am not sure if I am in love with the show. There weren't many instances where I was in awe or amazement with it, but the season was successful. The dialogue is pretty outstanding, and it all seems raw, natural, and realistic. There are not any noticeable plot contrivances, but of course this means that the season has to be grounded in realism, which is great but it makes us know that there are certain levels that the show will not want to go through. The performances are all great, and I feel as if I do know many of the characters now (and there are a lot).

The show did hit a lot of pretty deep spots and made me try and analyze it all. The first season is great in that ability, but I wouldn't say it is highly entertaining. I wouldn't call it slow either, because the editing is pretty fast and it allows for a high-energy ride, but you really have to be in it. I'll admit, I wasn't in on the ride for every episode or for every plot, but it's enough for me to definitely watch the second season.
