This chapter was written by George Pelecanos, a wonderful writer whose participation in "The Wire" and "The Pacific" made an impact. David Simon, one of the creators of "Treme" also contributed to the show. It was directed by Dan Mattias. The main idea behind today's episode is the frustration of the people with every day life in New Orleans trying to deal with the devastation. It also explores how the tragedy that fell on the city affects lives, especially that of Creighton Bernette. An inspired John Goodman made a wonderful appearance.
