Storyline

As such, Omar and Stringer meet for a parley, with security provided by Prop Joe. Meanwhile, Stringer insists on decreasing Avon's visibility in light of the detail's attempt to follow him after the basketball game. An irritable Phelan signs an affidavit for the new phone being used by the pit crew, and Pearlman tells McNulty that he is not up for automatic re-election, possibly because of the feathers he has ruffled due to his involvement with the Barksdale case. D'Angelo tries to understand why Shardene has left him, and after being clean for three days, Bubbles gets some advice from Waylon, before turning to Greggs for support. Meanwhile, McNulty attempts to flip Wallace, and the detail identifies Barksdale's main stash house. However, when Orlando's attempt to purchase weight gets him a lot more than he ...

the cost, simply that

We have another lesson from Omar; after begin almost killed by Omar Avon says to Stringer that his advice was good advice so they will want to parley with Omar just waiting for the right moment to end with him. I as simple as Omar stops stealing from them and they cancel the bounty but Omar will find out that they are just waiting for that moment, Omar will be moving to NY. Other that is moving is Wallace, here he is picked up and he says pretty much everything to McNulty (except anything of what D'Angelo said to him, certainly D'Angelo was good with him) but most important is that Wallace puts Stringer in the murder of Omar's boyfriend. Now Wallace is going with his grandmother to the shore, practically he is out of the game and certainly that's the best thing that could happen to him.

This is one of those episode that leave you just extremely interested, when the credits start to roll you will be like "I really need to know what is going to happen…NOW". Fortunately I saw this Season on DVD and I will be seeing Season 2 on DVD also. But anyway, here again is the damn Deputy with his sort of trademark "BUY-BUST" so again is the detail doing things that nobody but the Deputy wants. Meet Orlando, he is arrested yet nobody is going to pay his bail, he will help the detail for their and his own good. S*** will go wrong…
