"Poll question: Best penultimate episode of The Wire? (spoilers)"
Sun Jun-07-09 11:12 PM by Deebot

  

          

Imo the jewel of each season was the 2nd to last episode, generally speaking. Which one hit you the hardest? Which one was the best at setting up the finale?

Cleaning Up, Middle Ground, and That's Got His Own were all written by Pelecanos. What a fucking stud.

I don't know if it's possible to vote against Cleaning Up, but...I just rewatched season 4 and kinda forgot how perfect That's Got His Own is.

I cried like a bitch, mang.

No homo.

Poll result (16 votes)
Cleaning Up (season 1) (2 votes)Vote
Bad Dreams (season 2) (1 votes)Vote
Middle Ground (season 3) (10 votes)Vote
That's Got His Own (season 4) (3 votes)Vote
