How did he escape?
16 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Marlo Stanfield takes the position of Prop. Joe. He starts using cellphone again, and after chain of events, Freamon learns his number, but has no wiretap.

Dukie has been bullied by Spider and other corner boys. First he goes gym, then takes shooting lessons from Michael but he understands he has no talent in both. I think Stanfield Organization should use his brain. Like in Barksdale times, they were counting money every night;their incomes, outcomes etc. Dukie can assist organization in that kind of things.

McNulty's relationships are falling apart. He doesn't pay attention to both Beadie and his sons. Instead he continues working on serial killer case. Scott Templeton from Baltimore Sun fakes serial killer call and Jimmy backs him up to get wiretap for Marlo Stanfield. They get their wiretap, they setup fake(not working)wiretap on serial killer in homicide, but in reality Freamon sets up real wiretap on Marlo Stanfield. Vondas gives cell phone to Marlo, but warns him not to speak illegal things while talking. So, I don't know how cautious Marlo will be, and how much things Lester and McNulty dig from Marlo's wiretap.

Omar continues watching Marlo's lieutenant Monk's movements, unaware of an ambush. After watching for nights, he makes his move, only to find himself in ambush. I see that coming actually. Because of his desires full of Butchie's avenge, he's been careless. The real Omar would have sensed the ambush, and approached more carefully. Remember how he hits Barksdales without getting a scratch. But I have a question at the end: how the hell did he escape? Is he dead? We'll see that in the next episode.

My vote is 10/10.
