Okay, it should probably be Omar leaps in, but i'll explain later. This is a show that unfortunatly will be going out on top. I'll admit I was a little perplexed at Omar initially jumping (or leaping) 4 stories and being able to spirit away, but I like how it was resolved. They never thought to look in the same building and a broken leg is believable. One of the few times i'll fogive the writers for something near fantastical.
We find that the web of lies and mountain of political bull* just keeps getting deeper. McNulty bringing all the attention to the bogus homeless serial murder case has gunked up the works with all the attention. Bunk and Kima working the real case of bodies get no help as they are thrown roadblocks due to budgetary cutbacks and, placed at the rear behind...yup the homeless case. As far as my man Lester Freamon, he and McNulty are so peeved about the way they are forced to do police work on the cheap with no support from above that they dig themselves deeper into the deception.
Over at the newspaper Templeton comes up with a legit piece but many are skeptical, especially Editor Haynes.
And now that Marlo has made his power play he needs to worry about Omar. While he's not showing this worry yet, his peeps are. I suspect he may be dead before the cops get him.
As far as Lester Leaps in...it's an old Lester Young tune from the 50's. Lester, of course can be Lester Freamon who has jumped into the illegal detective work. Leaps in can be about Omar and Lester Young was known as "Prez". In this episode we had mention of Pryzbylewski or Prez.
We also got to see some past characters (I how they bring back past characters) in Randy (who is so lost to the system) and Nick (season 2) who is apparently jobless. So many loose ends that the writers are revisiting and to an extent wrapping up.
I'm most curious as to Omar and his one man mission, and the discovery of the sealed indictment copies found at Prop Joes. Oh boy, it just keeps getting better.
