Storyline

Avon takes care of Omar's man Brandon but Wallace, who saw Brandon in the arcade, isn't too comfortable when he sees what they've done to him. Avon gives D'Angelo and Wallace a bonus for their good work. The police meanwhile get authorization to place taps for the pay phones used by D'Angelo and his crew but can only listen in when one of their suspects is using it meaning they'll have to keep the phones under constant observation. McNulty is in a tight spot when Major Rawls gives him a week to report back to his old job. When he realizes the connections McNulty's made in the various shootings, he announces he's going to arrest the Barksdales for murder and threatens to mess up the drug investigation.

Brilliant...
12 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The opening of the 6th episode is pretty brilliant... the cinematography masterful, and the writing impeccable. Of course, after the previous episode's cliffhanger, stakes are up here. Still, the series continues to move with a great pace, and with every episode we get to know the characters more and more.

Dialogue is a big factor here, especially in this episode. I can't say that this is an easy series to write, because it isn't. However, it doesn't get any more realistic or raw than this. The performances are even more brilliant here, and we are finally starting to understand other characters that may at first have seemed insignificant.
