1.4 Old Cases
So this is Omar (Michael K. Williams)? We met him last episode, but I didn’t make the connection until now. I know he’s a fan favorite; it’s the one character people almost always mention when they talk about the show. Right now he seems rather low-key, but there’s certainly something a little unsettling about him. I think this is another example of how The Wire is playing the long game. It’s building slowly instead of trying to be cool and attention grabbing at every possible moment.
