In The Wire, when Cutty talks to Avon Barksdale about his gym idea, he says the top donors will get their picture up on the wall, but Avon cuts him off saying he doesn’t want his picture up on a wall, as of course he is a criminal boss and wants to keep a low profile. But in season 4, when Cutty’s gym is thriving and Avon is back in prison, where he’ll be for a very long time, Avon’s golden glove photo can be seen hanging up on the gym wall. There’s many things that can be read into this, and one is that Avon’s name will ring out long after he is gone and out of the game.
