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

"Clarifications" is the eighth episode of the fifth season of the HBO original series, The Wire. The episode was written by Dennis Lehane from a story by David Simon and Dennis Lehane and was directed by Anthony Hemingway. It aired on February 24, 2008.

Officers Truck and Dozerman are approached by a limping Omar, who tells the police that two drug dealers nearby are carrying weapons. Truck and Dozerman arrest the offending dealers as Omar approaches the corner through a back alley. He passes Kenard and a group of other children torturing a stray cat and all except Kenard flee. Omar forces the drug dealers to move from the corner and throws their drugs down a drain while shouting about Marlo Stanfield's fear of facing him.

McNulty addresses police commanders, Mayor Carcetti and Norman Wilson at a Comstat meeting. Carcetti asks McNulty for leads on a missing homeless man, Larry Butler, and McNulty reports no new information despite thorough checking. McNulty requests Carver for his investigation. Carcetti authorizes car rentals if necessary and leaves the meeting. Rawls jokes that they now must catch the killer, but at least the mayor is finally willing to pay for the police department.
