Omar Dead

Big night on The Wire, though you could see it coming. Even a bit of foreshadowing, by first showing that little psychopath fucker getting ready to burn a cat in the alley (a similar scene in The Corner literally caused me to give up on that book, and I have a pretty strong stomach).

Tim Goodman has been bringing the noise on this show since day one, so if you're a fan of the show, check out the de-co. I don't really have much to add, except to comment on how such seemingly unrealistic story arcs (McNulty faking a serial killer to get funding; Omar leaping five stories and limping away) have resolved with such relentless, inexorable realism. Two episodes left, and the bodies are dropping, both literally and figuratively.

Love the show, a very original plot and the characters are very well created.
