Trivia

Carcetti is seen at some sort of political fundraiser and under the foundation's banner there is another banner reading "The Ella Thompson Foundation". Ella Thompson was a character on 'Wire' creator David Simon's other Baltimore series 'The Corner'. She was based on the real-life Ella Thompson who ran the Martin Luther King rec center. The real-life Ella Thompson died of heart problems so this is clearly a nod to her memory. See more »

Quotes

Joseph 'Proposition Joe' Stewart: Omar to one side holding a spade, and maybe Marlo to the other with a shovel, and just at this moment, I manage to crawl out my own damn grave. No way do I crawl back in.
