"What you all need from me?" Omar finally asks, his eyes hard. McNulty shifts in his perch on the work table, to relieve some of the pain of the police-work hard-on pressing against his fly, and asks when Omar last saw Brandon. Omar says it was Tuesday at 7, maybe later. Lester frowns at this, in recognition, and leans forward. Omar says that Brandon was going to Greek's, and that he's heard Brandon got "snatched up from there." McNulty knows the place, and Omar says that Brandon liked to play the pinball games there. Lester comes over with his notepad to stand behind Omar, listening intently as Kima asks if Brandon went alone. Omar: "Yeah, and I didn't like it none, neither. But you can only treat a young man like a boy for so long before they book." McNulty says that when Dylan was killed, Omar must have assumed that Avon was planning to come after him. Omar says that he didn't, actually: "That nigga's enemies got enemies. I just figured he tried his hand on the wrong corner, without us, and got dropped." Kima says that he was worried about Brandon, though, and Omar says, "Look, in my game, you take some kid, you play it the safest way you can. But it ain't about no hiding forever, you heard?" McNulty smiles a little at Omar's professional integrity. Omar goes on: "Frankly, you been in it as long as me, you do the thing on your name." McNulty surmises, "Anyone going to come after Omar, they're going to know Omar's coming after him." "Oh, indeed," says Omar, with a sneer at his absent enemies. McNulty asks who came after Brandon, and Omar says he heard it might have been Wee-Bey, Stinkum, and Bird: "He was down with the snatch, too."
