  • Whoa. Be prepared. After the long and careful buildup of the rest of the season, this episode just explodes into one of the most action-packed, edge-of-your-seat climaxes I have ever witnessed- anywhere.

    The character development and weeks of exposition pay off big time in this episode. Bubbles embarks on a shaky path to sobriety. Omar wises up and takes a powder, and we're actually sorry to see him go. Wallace flips. Shardene gives intel to Lester. And Orlando tries to get in the game again, with disastrous results. The Detail continues to put their case together, but one of their own goes down in the line of duty. The climactic scene had me literally on the edge of my seat, yelling at the screen. I really felt the desperation, pain and anguish of those characters. A must-see episode!
