I had a very tough time finding it online as well. That site ^ started with season 5 and updated it with the older eps.

I think that was relating Marlo back to Stringer Bell. Stringer kept trying to leave the street behind and did not care about his reputation. Marlo realized that he did not belong in the corporate, and he really did not want to leave the street anyway. Marlo unlike Bell (more like Avon), wanted his name to be known.

I think Jimmy was roughly based on Ed Burns (with his detail to the FBI). When Burns retired from the force he had no idea what he was going to do with his life. And Jimmy has no idea what he is going to do.

Yeah I'm on episode 8. Shouldn't be too hard to not see spoilers since the show is over.

4 episodes into season 4 and nothing has been spoiled yet! But, I've been careful. I haven't liked season 4 as much as the first 3 so far, but it's still better than almost anything. I'm holding off judgment until season 5 is finished but I think this is probably my favorite TV show I've seen.
