diamondsonmyrims answered: Frank Sobotka went on his own terms right? He gave his life for Nicks?
Frank was one of a few characters that got to choose how to handle being killed (accepting fate, “taking it like a man”), but what I meant was that Bodie was the one who had a chance to fight back.
finbarshareswithyou answered: But can we all agree that Bodie was killed by Marlo and that D and Wallace were killed by Stringer? O-Dog did what he was told, like Bodie.
That’s a fair assessment.
morningbroadway answered: From a strategic p-o-v, it also made sense for Bodie to die so Marlo could take his territory. Marlo wanted to be king - Bodie was in the way
It made sense for Marlo to take out Bodie because he thought Bodie was going to snitch to the police (which he actually was planning to do). On the other hand, Bodie already was buying from Marlo so in a way it was already his territory. Marlo was a greedy sociopath (to borrow from awindofsuchviolence who has an interesting take on all this on her Tumblr) so he didn’t need much of a reason to order anyone killed in the first place.
vatofromsananto answered: the death that hit me the hardest will always be Wallace. Part of that was because he was the first so it was shocking but also his innocenc
becausethisistheinternet answered: For me it will always be Wallace. It showed how ruthless and unfair the game was… Wallace was one of my favorite characters.
Wallace was a tough one for sure, but he did have the chance to walk away - heck, we was given a ride and a place to stay to the county - and chose to return to the game. He was a lost boy, but he was in the game.
awindofsuchviolence answered: BUTCHIE! His death really bummed me out! He seemed all in all to be a good man and didn’t deserve to go out like that.
One could make a case that if you’re in the game then however you go out is exactly the way you deserved to go out. That said, the old, blind Butchie we knew seemed like a gentle soul (although I don’t think he would have ended up being Omar’s banker if he didn’t have a longer, more complicated story to tell).
