Trivia

When Omar asks if Brother Mouzine killed Dante, Mouzone responds "He's resting." This is very similar to the exchange between Mouzone and Omar in "Bad Dreams" (S2E11) when Mouzone, after Omar has shot him, asked if Omar killed his man, Lamar. Omar responded with "Nah, he's just resting." See more »
