Storm Warnings
23 October 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

"Storm Warnings" is the tenth episode of the second season of the HBO original series, The Wire. The episode was written by Ed Burns from a story by David Simon & Ed Burns and was directed by Rob Bailey. It originally aired on August 10, 2003.

Tension over the next union secretary continues to build. Frank Sobotka plans to run again, despite an earlier agreement that Ott would be next to hold the position. In the office, Ott catches Sobotka with re-election flyers and calls him out on it. When Sobotka says he wants to finish what he started, Ott storms out. Sobotka hints to Horseface that Ott would uncover the source of the funds if he were to become secretary.

Roland "Prez" Pryzbylewski surveys the detail's work to date and is pleased with the information they have collected. The detail meet to discuss the direction their case is taking, notably that they are supplementing the wire tap with GPS satellite surveillance of their suspects' vehicles.

Bodie Broadus is pleased with the new package, which is finally selling well. He orders a resupply from Mo Man via his subordinate Puddin. Stringer Bell arrives with Melvin "Cheese" Wagstaff from Proposition Joe's organization. Stringer tells Bodie that Cheese will take over three of the six towers. Bodie doesn't understand why they are giving up their territory, and Stringer tells him to consider their new package's source. Bodie quickly adapts to the new circumstances by undercutting Cheese's prices. The buyer is Bubbles. Cheese is unfazed by Bodie's actions and the two banter back and forth.
