My official farewell to Omar

So I did one for Bodie so you know I have to do one for Omar.I have to admit, that initially I wasn't a fan of yours. In the first couple seasons you seemed to be a trouble maker that had no rhyme or reason. Then the whole "you being gay" thing just put me over the top. But then again, that made your character so much more real because I know their are some true street cats that are the same way. Then around the time when you revealed that there was no shooting on sundays, I came to realize that you did have a heart, and was even amused that a gangsta could have rules to the game. Then the end of season 3 you killed my boo Stringer. Even though I know he deserved to go, part of me will never forgive you for that. Fast forward to this final season and I thought for sure you would be the last man standing. You were suppose to be that calm in the storm that took out Marlo. But now your gone...and in a way that only the Wire writers could have fathomed.

I mean, I know everyone can't go out the super gangsta way like Stringer and Bodie, but damn... by a kid. I thought you would have never underestimated anyone. But when you looked to your right and saw that little nig, you let your guard down. Thus the reason for your demise. You will be missed...RIP Omar.

Here are a couple of my fav Omar scenes that show off his different personalities:






Now when it comes to the actor, Michael K. Williams, has been acting his ass off this entire season. Especially as of late when he jumped out that window. You could feel the pain when he was bandaging himself up. Those tears were the realest I've seen from an actor in a minute. Then he had that limp down packed throughout the block. My loyal readers know I had the chance to meet him a couple weeks ago, but for the new-comers I am going to re-post the pic... I can't wait to see you in other roles.Now as for the future of the Wire, my prediction now is that the police are finally going to just catch up with Marlo and that will be the series' end like they did Avon at the end of season 3. I really wanted Marlo to die, but now that Omar is gone I cant even imagine who the shooter would be. Maybe Mike.

Ha. This was what I was talking about when I said something happened to Omar in the first post with that picture... This is Caesar Cannon btw. I was mad. I knew he was going to die, but I thought it would at least be after he knocked off either chris or snoop first, though... shame

Seeing that last night thru me completely off. I had a feeling that lil kid was going to try something, he trying to be too hard for his own good. I didn't think he would take down Omar though, I guess it's fitting since nobody else could get the drop on him.

DollFace February 25, 2008 at 8:46 AM

Unfortunately...I accidentally ran across a spoiler and knew how he died before I watched it last night:-(

I truly thought he would make it to the last episode...but I've been saying all season that I think Michael will be the last man standing.

Love your Ode to Omar!

While I hated seeing Omar go out like that it shows that life is just a vicious circle. Omar got offed by a future Marlo. He was killed by a snot nosed kid who just last week didn't know who he was. If he didn't know him, he damn sure wasn't scared of him.

RIP Omar

MAN!!! I was sooooo shocked that they took Omar out like that!!! Never expected it from a little kid!!! I was hoping for a shoot out between him and Marlo.

RIP Omar...*sniff and poors out a little liquor*

Now I think Marlo's whole operation is gonna get shut down...I think Mike is gonna take out Snoop...Chris is about to get taken in for something. But yeah Mike is probably gonna be the last man standing.

Man I'm gonna miss this show...

The Jaded NYer February 25, 2008 at 11:56 AM

I don't watch the show but I've noticed it has a huge following!

What I wanted to comment on was...is it me, or is the actor in that pic gripping you up a lil too close?? LOL

mp1 v.8.0 February 25, 2008 at 1:16 PM

Omar turbed into my favorite character on tv period! I never thought that a gay character would be at the top of my list, but there he is. Mike Williams is definitely that actor. His Omar character almost makes me forgive him for playing that Officer in the Trapped in the Closet videos. lol

I think Omar is gonna go out on top for the finale. I just don't see them making anything stick on him. Hell, I hope I'm wrong

swag_ambassador February 25, 2008 at 1:36 PM

well thanks for killing it for me the other day, even though i watched it last night and was like, OKAY.

But it was all bad to see ole boy get clapped by lil dude, i was like wtf?.

And you thinkin like i am, mike gon kill marlo LOL.

12kyle February 25, 2008 at 2:05 PM

After watching that clip that you posted, did anybody else notice that he walked in the store WITHOUT a limp? Strange.

Eb the Celeb February 25, 2008 at 2:19 PM

@ Jaded - Leave it to you to find something that aint there...LOL

@kyle... you are so right... I never even noticed before but we doesnt have the broom crutch or anything... I cant believe they messed that up...

Oh wait... maybe secretly their are 2 Omar's, that he has an identical twin that no one ever knew about and the broke up omar is still alive and going to get marlo...

aahhhhhhhh!!!!!

Don February 25, 2008 at 5:24 PM

Eb, I appreciate you posting these videos. I plan on checking them out when I get home tonite. The pic is too cool.

The Wire is the bomb show. Classic.

I hope they dont kill that dude Mike.

@don

eclectik February 25, 2008 at 7:10 PM

They should have did the kid way better than this!!! Man Wait till you see what happens next week though... smh!!

Mizrepresent February 25, 2008 at 9:45 PM

Funny thing...Omar was always one of my fav's on this show...i don't care if they portrayed him as the homo thug...i still luv'ed this nigga...i can't watch the new series right now, but know this...Omar was the SHIT! Loved his character from inception...for real.

TravelDiva February 26, 2008 at 11:54 AM

I was sorry to see Omar go. He was kind of a Robin Hood like character, and to see him taken out by a disrepectful, scared little kid - terrible! I've already seen next week's show, so I only have one episode left. It breaks my heart. I feel like there is so much story left to tell.

Slausin-Ass Slaus February 26, 2008 at 12:27 PM

Gat dammit I have never seen this damn show.

Tired of everybody tellin me about it.

mann bunkit..

I havent seen ANY of this season.

:-(

Ms. Lovely February 28, 2008 at 3:54 PM

Omg..Eb I didn't know you were a WIRE junkie! I was so pissed that he went out like that without even getting to pinch that fool Marlo. I think they had Omar shoot his last scene without the limp as a tribute to his character. They wanted to show him walking tall like the fans remember...Look forward to seeing his future work too..

Univgurl February 29, 2008 at 7:25 AM

I've given up on watching the rest of the season since last week watching Omar's demise On Demand. I uploaded the "Omar Hits Barksdale Stash House" video posted here to YouTube. I love Omar and what he stood for, so I'm just gonna keep that video and the like and remember the good times. **Yes, I'm dramatical.**

12kyle February 29, 2008 at 7:46 AM

@ Univgurl
I've seen this week's ep...you might wanna check it out.

Ms.Lady March 2, 2008 at 9:32 PM

I feel like a HUGE loser for having basic cable...but shew..other bills need to be paid.

Maybe I'll see if the new season is somewhere on the internet to view.
