Episode Summary

EDIT
"Don't matter how many times you get burnt, you just keep doin' the same." - Bodie

The Franklin Terrace public housing towers are razed, forcing the Barksdale drug crew to find a new home on the streets of West Baltimore. Stringer Bell sets up shop using a new sales strategy for Bodie, Poot, Puddin and the rest of the gang, as he awaits the return of Avon from prison. McNulty, Greggs and the detail look to make a case against Stringer with a wiretap on a drug ring run by his ally, Proposition Joe. Assigned to the Western District drug unit, Carver and Herc notch up the pressure on street dealers. Burrell is caught in a power play by First District Councilman Tommy Carcetti. Mayor Clarence Royce, facing re-election next year, puts Burrell on notice that murders must go down. Rawl's Comsat meetings begin to look like the McCarthy hearings. Daniels' promotion to major appears to be derailed because of his estranged wife's political ambitions. A rash of murders cuts short Bunk's day at the ballpark, as Bubbles and Johnny lose big in their latest caper for cash. On the eve of his parole, Cutty Wise is offered a new start on the outside by Avon, but after being released, he finds the drug life has changed.moreless

  • They're baaaaack! The 3rd season gets off to a resoundingly satisfying start, returning to the gritty streets and treacherous political infighting The Wire cut its teeth on.

    9.4
    Man, it's good to see The Wire return to its roots! The projects have been demolished in the name of urban renewal, Avon is still behind bars, the Greeks are gone- but the more things change, the more things stay the same: Daniels is heading another detail, this time dedicated to bringing down Proposition Joe and Stringer. Speaking of Bell, he continues his attempt to inculcate corporate philosophy into his young dealer corps. Bubs and Johnny are still out on the street, trying to score. A few new faces show up to complicate things- Cutty Wise, a newly-paroled soldier who tries to get back in the game, only to find that the street has gotten tougher in his 14 years inside; Tommy Carcetti, an ambitious councilman schooled in political intrigue. Lots of possibilities in this new season. Count me in...moreless
