"-30-" is the series finale of the HBO original series The Wire.
Truth flickered here and there, but never really came to light. After all these years, all those dead bodies and so many criminal contortions of the law, the wiretap in “The Wire” didn’t bring the bad guys to justice. Every happy ending came with a sad coda: Bubbles, the former addict and pariah, was at long last invited up the basement stairs to share a family meal in his sister’s dining room. David Simon did not end his series the way “The Sopranos” came to a close, in a frozen tableau of ambiguity.
Last night’s series finale of The Wire took great care to tie up a whole lot of loose ends and answer a whole bunch of nagging questions.
Everything that could be concluded was, but the circle of Baltimore life goes on: Marlo is the new Stringer, Michael is the new Omar, Pearlman is the new Phelan, Sydnor is the new Lester/McNulty. Gus was the first to suspect that Scott fabricated quotations and facts, but even Gus never guessed that the entire serial-killer story was a hoax, invented by McNulty to force City Hall to override budget cuts and provide the cars and man-hours that he and Detective Lester Freamon, the detective in love with his wiretap, needed to get Marlo. A few deserving people came out ahead, or at least even, but nothing really changed: the drug trade thrives and the system in Baltimore drifts on, corrupt and self-sustaining, held together by convenience and a lie too big to bring down. 10.15am update: Macca's review has arrived, in which he reflects on David Simon's sudden burst of optimism and where will Marlo end up?And if you want to see all comments on one page, just like the old days, then click on the "all comments on one page" link at the bottom of the page.
We were at least given the dim and distant hope that Michael will one day finish Marlo like Omar ended Stringer. Detective Jimmy McNulty created the hoax to make the collar, and it cost him his job only because he felt compelled to come clean.
Freamon informs McNulty that Daniels and Pearlman know about the hoax and the illegal wiretap. SPOILER ALERT: If you haven't watched the Wire all the way to the end, then look away now.

The Blind Boys of Alabama's version of Tom Waits' "Way Down in the Hole" plays over the episode's closing montage.

Tommy Carcetti and his staff learn that the "serial killer" was a hoax.

The Baltimore drug scene, as seen through the eyes of drug dealers and law enforcement. The episode was written by David Simon from a story by David Simon & Ed Burns and was directed by Ernest Dickerson.It originally aired on December 19, 2004. But, of course, young, lost Duquan took his place on the street, injecting the same drugs it took Bubbles much of his life to overcome. And it’s not that Mr. Simon’s series was the only intelligent drama on television. However, after Steintorf once again requests that Daniels "juke the stats" to boost Carcetti's position on crime reduction, he refuses, and is forced to resign after Campbell threatens to expose his past wrongdoings. When the mayor and his men learn that the serial-killer story they pumped up for political gain was invented by their own detectives, they were aghast and ashen.
