Overview

In the projects. On the docks. In City Hall. And now, in the schools. The places and faces change, but the game remains the same. A new story begins with Season Four of HBO's acclaimed drama series 'The Wire' that centers on the vagaries of crime, law enforcement, politics and education in Baltimore, MD. In Season Four, the story follows the new vocations of several characters, the rise of a new drug empire and the city's imminent mayoral election--while also delving into the lives of four young people in Baltimore's urban educational system. The ensemble cast includes Dominic West, John Doman, Frankie Faison, Aidan Gillen and Dierdre Lovejoy.

Episodes

    • 1. Boys of Summer
    • In the Season Four premiere, four boys from West Baltimore--Michael, Namond, Randy and Dukie--play out their summer vacation in the streets. Having failed to capture a potentially valuable homing pigeon, the boys are stirred to action when Dukie is beaten up, and Randy concocts a retaliation plan against the rival gang. The action is slower at Bodie's corner, giving young Namond an excuse to take off early. Meanwhile, Marlo has solved the problem that baffled Stringer Bell: how to maintain discipline--read: murders--without getting police attention. At the detail's office, Freamon and Sydnor press Pearlman to issue City Hall subpoenas. With the mayoral race heading into its final weeks, Mayor Royce and his primary challenger, Tommy Carcetti, hit different campaign trails. Carcetti's deputy campaign manager, Norman Wilson, and his campaign guru, Theresa D'Agostino, try to keep their candidate focused. Prez preps for a new career in higher education and McNulty turns down a promotion.
