So, what's next for McNulty after season 5 ends?


Only 38 or so years old, has no job, no pension, can never work in the police force again, quit college only a year in, ex wife wants nothing to do with him, can't pay child support, kids seems to like him less and less, break up with the other police lady seems imminent.

Some kind of hint at an optimistic close for him would be nice if there was a chance.

I think there should have been a spin-off called McNulty P.I. and he would have been a private investigator in Baltimore/DC. The only problem is that McNulty is unlikeable so people would get sick of watching him after a while. He doesn't really cooperate with his peers and doesn't follow orders or procedures. He would have to be self-employed.

He will become Bubbles.

Why would you want an optimistic close for him? He was a scumbag.

He was more morally filled than pretty much everyone on the show.
