UPDATE: Spoiler ahead. Don’t read any further if you haven’t seen episode 4 yet!

By Now you know that hitman Chris Partlow assassinated Co-op leader Proposition Joe on orders of Marlo Stanfield on the 4th episode of The Wire last week. I don’t watch much TV but I’ve been addicted to The Wire since Season 4. Yet that last scene in episode 4 was a shocker.

How ungrateful is that psychopath Marlo? Prop Joe basically treated him like a son but Marlo wanted Joe out of the way because the greeks respected Joe.

In honor of Prop Joe, I am posting the Young Prop Joe Prequel which shows little Joe hustling and cutting side deals even as a youngin on the schoolyard.
