My favorite highlights centered around the recurring theme of reinvention and adaptation (flex) of our favorite characters: The final culmination of B & B’s relationship, ending in mutual betrayal and Stringer’s death.

Colvin working as civilian security. “Bubble’s Depo” shopping cart. He even got the possessive apostrophe right. Love ya, Bubbs. Carcetti wants to be mayor. Well, it started out that he wanted to be mayor. Now it’s starting to seem like he just wants to win an election. There’s a difference. Oh, and Mr. Prez is rocking the back-to-school theme.
