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

"Refugees" is the fourth episode of the fourth season of the HBO original series The Wire. Written by Dennis Lehane from a story by Ed Burns & Dennis Lehane, and directed by Jim McKay, it originally aired on October 1, 2006.

Mayor Clarence Royce meets with his Chief of Staff Coleman Parker, who thinks that with Pan-African flag colors on his campaign posters Royce can win the city's African American vote. Royce sarcastically asks if he should go one further by wearing Dashikis like former Washington D.C. mayor Marion Barry. Parker also presses him for more money and Royce suggests organizing a card game.

Homicide unit commander Colonel Raymond Foerster meets with Commissioner Ervin Burrell and his deputy William Rawls to discuss the recent murder of a state's witness. The murder has cost the mayor politically and he has asked Burrell to slow the investigation so that no proof that the motive was the victim's upcoming testimony will emerge before election day. Burrell orders Foerster to take the case away from veteran detective Ed Norris and instead assign it to Greggs because of her rookie status. Foerster appears emaciated and drained throughout the meeting. Nevertheless, he argues to keep Norris as the investigator and, suspecting Burrell's motives, offers a guarantee that no further details of the investigation will reach the press before the election. Burrell tells him that he resents the implication.
