Final Proposition
15 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

In the previous episode, we witnessed Butchie's death and we shocked,horrified. 6 episodes left and main characters are dying one by one. In this episode, Prop. Joe has a final proposition for Marlo, but Marlo is reluctant to listen his offer.

McNulty and Freamon continues creating imaginary serial killer. They are now adding more "crazy" aspects to serial killer to make it more famous.

Officer Colicchio attacks an innocent teacher and an investigation started against him. Sergeant Carver makes his choice in this investigation and Herc comes to understand him and regrets their past choices.

Ervin Burrell is intimidated by Nerese Campbell and decides to leave his chair to William Rawls without telling to media about Daniels's past.

Omar comes to Baltimore with vengeance. But he sees that Marlo is protected well. He thinks he lure the "snake" out by hurting its lieutenants and puts Monk top in his "hurt list."

Marlo plots to end Prop Joe and New Day Co-Op: First, he comes to an agreement with Greeks. Later he backs up Cheese in his argument with Hungry Man. And Finally he kills Joe to put Cheese in his chair.

Prop. Joe survived 5 season. I'm really surprised to see him last this long. Because he was always at the edge when solving problems. But after seeing him surviving 5 season, I thought maybe Joe survive in all these sh*t, but he can't. Let's see how events will unfold from now on.

My vote is 10/10.
