Notes

  • Earle is a singer/songwriter and recovering heroin addict. Earle also performs the theme song for the fifth season, and his song "I Feel Alright" is featured in the montage at the end of the second season. When Omar leaves for New York at the end of "The Cost" his line appears to be taken from Earle's song "NYC." The original lyric is "Must be something happening there, it's just too big a town."
