The Closer > The Closer Summer Finale Review: Who's the Mole? > Comments Page 2
I think it's Gabriel. He's a goody two shoes.
I don't like Gabriel's girlfriend being the leak. It's seems like a convenient scapegoat to bring on an unlikeable character two episodes before the reveal, give a one sentence explanation to say they've been in the action the entire time, then pin the dastardly deed on said character. I don't like Gabriel because he was in the vehicle at the time of the crime, he wasn't subpeonaed which raised major flags and the whole girlfriend angle. Unless he takes the fall for someone I wouldn't be impressed. I don't like pope because there's an undercurrent of animosity between the two of them and she already has realized how pope is which wouldn't make it a big surprise. Not to mention they're not going to major crimes which makes all of them targets.
Like many of you I've been leaning toward Pope as the leak. He's two-faced, self-serving, untrustworthy not to mention he's screwed Brenda over before in their personal relationship. We know that Gabriel and Pope aren't going to Major Crimes so it's hard not to think the leak wouldn't be one of them but that seems too easy. And Gabriel's too popular to go out as a snitch. Last Monday, a new character -- an unlikeable one -- surfaced. Gabriel's new girlfriend, an attorney-to-be, seems to be a stickler for following the rules. Brenda and the others treated her very coldly. We also learned she's been dating Gabriel 1 year......that's when Goldman's lawsuits started. Maybe Gabriel's been telling the girlfriend what's been going on at work and she's the leak. If we find out she's been working for the weasle Goldman, we'll have our answer. Favorite episodes: all of Provensa and Flynn's screw-ups from the body in Provensa's garage to the funeral where an extra body flew out of the c
However they decide to close the series with the mole...they are going to have to end it the right way so people will still want to watch Major Crimes. We really like Brenda! That would, in my opinion, include some closure for Brenda and justice. I would want that to include Pope as well as her serial rapist. Maybe from there she joins the FBI, or she does what I did and makes a change to be closer to her aging parents for awhile. I would imagine that Rader has been covertly researching the mole concerns. Gabriel did have a problem with the way Brenda handled "dropping the guy off" but it would seem more likely the girlfriend would end up under the bus then Gabriel himself...perhaps chalk it up to mattress worries.
I have actually worked with enough people who toss subordinates under the bus for self preservation. I also have seen them finally get there comeuppance. Ultimately, that is my hope for Pope! He brought her in and she takes him out!
I think it's Irene Daniels, David's ex girfriend.
Pope or Gabriel will be the leak. It is nonsense to think it would be Fritz. Andy and Provenza are not rats. Sanchez has too much respect and having it be Buzz or Tao would not be interesting. Brenda is a cop's cop. Pope needs a pacifier and Gabriel plays by the so-called book. Taylor is too obvious and though filled with jealousy likes to see bad people brought to justice. Raydor is internal affairs which gives her a license to leak. Gabriel broke the book once in the episode "Ruby" and Brenda took him to task. Then she breaks the rules. Pope is a petulant little man trying to fill his ego with his job. Can't be chief, can't have wife, can't have Brenda, not as smart as Brenda...she has to go anywhere. He gives her the ultimate lack of respect though she solves every thing and makes the department look good. You know then there is this new big mouth girlfriend of Gabriel's that we now find out he has been living with for some time. Bedroom chatter being repeated? Look at t
I agree with Trish. My vote is Pope.
Sorry, I should have read the comments before submitting mine.
I think I've solved it. The leak is Gabriel's girlfriend. Gabriel has clearly told her all about Brenda (she mentioned it to him tonight that she finally witnessed what he had been talking about for the past year). She is a law student, maybe interning for Goldman or had some relationship to him. Thus, none of her Team has intentionally betrayed her, which wouldn't make sense from a story standpoint, they have all covered for her in the past, why would one of them turn on her.
I agree with you, Katie. Gabriela has been confiding in his girlfriend, who is an aspiring soon-to-be attorney, and she is taking it back to "the devil" attorney. It would be sad if she has only been using Gabriel this whole time for information. It was what Rador said to Gabriel last night that tipped it for me. She told him it would always be good to get an attorney's opinion now and then, and he said I do get it from her whether I want it or not. It's her vicariously through Gabriel.
What about David Gabriel's new girlfriend? He could have confided in her at some point and forgotten about it...he has been dating her for a year. She could be the mole; she may even be dating him just to obtain information.
I hope it's not Gabriel. The signs have been so utterly obvious that it'd be a disappointment and lazy writing and acting if he was indeed the mole. I would hope he'd leave on his own terms, not as a tattletale, which he's already been written as. I think Pope, Taylor, and Gabriel are red herrings, to be honest. They look too guilty to be guilty. The key seems to be a two second shot in the Silent Partner episode...
The mole has to one or more of the people not going onto Major Crimes, I'm thinking it's Brenda because These are the people staying on major crimes; Joining McDonnell will be G.W. Bailey (Provenza), Tony Denison (Flynn), Michael Paul Chan (Tao), Raymond Cruz (Sanchez) and Phillip P. Keene (Buzz). Jon Tenney (Fritz) and Robert Gossett (Commander Taylor, who will be getting a promotion) will make guest appearances. If its not Brenda there has to be a reason for her to leave, maybe one of her parents has a heart attack and dies so she leaves to move in with the living parent.
Perhaps Gabriel is dating Det Daniels (again), keeping it a secret. Pillow talk? Det Daniels would definitely have it in for Brenda. It's a stretch, but have seen goofier outcomes!
Well, looking at the promo for the new show "Major Crimes", the only person missing was Gabriel. Why Gabriel? My heart is broken. I hope I'm wrong. There was some new chick with the old gang. I'm so hurt and sad.
I believe that it's Pope. He lost to her as a finalist to be Chief and he said he would do whatever necessary to keep the job.
This program will surly be missed love it love it,,, but with it all I still watch reruns and Major Crimes when that starts...Good writting great directing and most fine Actors. All I can say is I wish Kyra the best that life has to offer she is very talented and has many super things to do. Farewell Brenda and i want to say is Thank you Thank you very much Have a Happy life
i enjoy reading everyone's ideas regarding the closer, but please learn how
to spell before posting.
I love the show. I love the writers. Wow was I blindsided at Monday's show. I thought she had Stroh. Big shocker that it wasn't him. I do not think nor want to believe that Fritz is the mole. Brenda has a good heart. Real soft side. Fritz is a smart man. He knows who's team she's on... and its not the criminals. I look forward to seeing how this plays out. Applauds to the writers and the great actors. You have faithful fans to the bitter end!
WE MAY HAVE BEEN GIVEN A CLUE AS TO WHO THE MOLE IS IN SEASON 7 EP16 SILENT WITNESS..... AT THE START OF THE SHOW GOLDMAN IS INTERVIEWING REGGIE AT SAN QUENTIN PRISON AND HE READS OFF THE NAMES OF THE PERSONS REGGIE CALLED TO HAVE TURELL KILLED FOR WHAT HE DID IN SEASON6 EP8 (WAR ZONE). REGGIE ASKED GOLDMAN HOW DID HE GET THOSE NAMES. FLASH BACK TO SEASON6 EP8 AT THE END BRENDA HANDS FLYNN A PHONE AND TELL HIM TO TAKE REGGIE OUT TO MAKE AS MANY CALLS AS HE WANTS. .... ONLY FLYNN COULD KNOW WHO REGGIE CALLED! THEREFORE ONLY FLYNN COULD HAVE TOLD GOLDMAN THE NAMES FLYNN IS THE MOLE
I believe that Taylor is the mole. The reason I believe this is when Sanchez was talking to Brenda in the car episode 15 the one person who never looked over was Taylor. He has never liked Brenda because he was passed up for the same job.
I've always thought it was Pope or David and since David is leaving it looks like it might be him. I don't think he ever forgave her for leaving the prisoner to be killed by his gang. Pope needs her gone so they will not offer his job to her as it is a temp position still. We will see, but thanks for seven years of tears and lots of laughter.
I am a huge fan and am anxiously awaiting what happens. I would be heartbroken if it were Gabriel. He said to Brenda many times "I am always on your side". The team risked their jobs and threatened to quit when Captian Taylor tried to have her axed. Taylor has been two faced and my guess. I think he is the one that went to Phillip Stroh. I dont see Fritz betraying Brenda. He gave his own inheritance just to pay the attorney to help her. He loves her. I think Brenda will leave only because her dad gets real sick and she goes to be with him... she loves her daddy.
Won't it be something if the mole was Fritz...the last person anyone would suspect. Who else knows all of your weakensses and everything going on in your life/job than the one you sleep with. With the range of emotions he has shown in some episodes he could feel like he was "saving" his wife from all the danger of her job and finally have a normal marriage.
I HOPE ITS POPE! THE LAST COUPLE OF SEASONS HAS GIVEN ME A STRONG "TRAITOR"
VIBE FROM POPE....HE WANTS TO BE TOP COP AND I THINK HE STARTED UNRAVELING WHEN HE WAS PASSED OVER FOR THE TOP GIG IF NOT BEFORE....BRENDA COULD HAVE HAD IT BUT LET IT
GO; U THINK IT WUD HAVE GONE TO POPE BUT IT DIDNT. I WOULDNT BE SURPRISED IF POPE ACTUALLY KILLED THE GUY; MAYBE IT WASNT A HEART ATTACK...I DONT THINK ITS GABE OR TAYLOR CUZ THAT WUD BE TOO OBVIOUS; THE WRITING HAS BEEN CONSISTENTLY TOP NOTCH SO TO GO INTO 'CLICHE' MODE NOW WUD B STUPID; AND A LET DOWN...I ALSO THINK THAT TAYLOR HAS AN INKLING THAT IT IS POPE REMEMBER
TAYLOR WAS PRIVY TO THINGS IN THE BEGINNING THAT WE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT AND THATS WHY WEVE SEEN A SLIGHT. CHANGE IN HIM WHEN IT COMES TO BRENDA.... POPE IS TWO FACED AND TAYLOR KNOWS IT...WHY WAS POPE PUSHING BRENDA TO SETTLE? CUZ HE WANTS TO BLEMISH HER RECORD...POPE COULD OF FOUGHT TO NOT HAVE THIS NEW RULE BE TIED TO BRENDA BUT HE LET IT RIDE....HE ACTS LIKE HE HAS BREN
