The Closer > The Closer Summer Finale Review: Who's the Mole? > Comments Page 5
I think Gabriel even or TAYLOR. I think gabriel did not like that she did.
But taylor ever like her. It could not be poe beacuse was not there all night and does not what happpen until later. He said Brenda about the car she would tell. But some one has to help Goldman beacuse alot of that inforamtion he but not eveyone would know. Like how theu kill. Goldman not even names for half people. The one he know by name are open file. It that he how and why the didn"t get trail. I hope parent come back. I wish we see photo of brothers and siser in law. She does not have family of brother and her. She said three brother one bobby and Richard did name three brother. Or even talk about her brother that much. It we cool it brothers come see them.
It said something is going happen her parent so mabye she will go back home and say fitz will not happy moving to al he just got great. he happy when leave the poilce because not worry her was much.
I always thought it was curious how they all of a sudden had all that money for all of the surveilance equipment from the FBI. Could it be that they had been watching/listening to her all along? Fritz went to great lengths to not let Brenda know that the money came from him or was it really from the FBI?
I always enjoyed watching the reruns and even would put on my dvd's of the show because I liked it and the characters so much. But watching it this season has not been enjoyable. I don't like the story lines and I don't like the idea that Brenda may leave because she was forced out and made to look bad. What's the fun of watching reruns if you don't like the ending of the show. I'm so unhappy, that I only watched the last two episodes by bits and pieces. Couldn't sit through the whole show knowing I won't like the ending. Maybe there is no mole but a recording/listening device in the room. About the episodes the lawyer mentioned, when I watched them before I felt what she did was justified. But hearing him talk about them has made them seem just what he said about her. Why do they want to destroy this character?
Gabriel and Pope are totally possible, but I am also leaning towards Buzz.
Buzz isn't a police officer so he doesn't have that "don't rat on your partners/team" mantra drilled into him, and as was shown in "To Serve and Protect" - Buzz is and has always been a "goody goody" with the rest of the squad, so it wouldn't be surprising if his conscience got to him and he went and just spilled everything. Also, since he is always listening to all of the interviews and hears everything that goes on in the interviews and behind the scenes, he would reasonably have access to all of the information mentioned in the new lawsuit.
However, I hope it isn't Buzz or Gabriel and I have a sickening feeling that it may be Chief Pope. It may not have started with him (with the Terrell Baylor business) but I do think that the next lawsuit has something very wrong all over it.
However - what about Captain Taylor? He's capable of anything....
The traitor is Pope. He'll do anything to remain chief and Brenda Lee Johnson is his biggest career threat. He already came close to losing out to her before. He's not going to let it happen again. She's become too successful in the department and has outshown him. Raydor definitely isn't. She doesn't have the history. Taylor is too obvious. Maybe if he found out that he's been aced out of his office all this time, then maybe, but he's too busy preening and planning his wardrobe. The one with the motive is Pope. He's insecure enough to do anything to stay on top. No one else would have such knowledge and quick access to all those case files so to give them to Goldman. Gabriel hasn't shown a devious side to warrant or explain such a turn on his boss. It's got to be Pope.
Can you say "Capt. Raydor"?
One womans' ego is enough..... But two?
Who else could bring the most damaging cases into question?
I watched all the episodes that Goldman mentioned, which are The Big Picture, Ruby, Tijuana Brass, Power of Attorney, War Zone, and Fresh Pursuit. So here is my opinion taking in all the episodes. Of all the squad, Gabriel had an issue with all of these cases except for Power of Attorney. Pope had an issue with her in all of these cases except Power of Attorney. Gabriel has more to gain in the long run (think about it, he probably would be forced to quit, but if he goes into politics, he could use as an ad campaign that he stood for civil rights of all men and cleaned the LAPD of unethical behavior) but Pope has the short sight prize. He gets the headache Brenda Leigh off his back, who constantly undermines him and his authority, and gets to possibly keep the job of Chief. The question would be when did Goldman find out about the suicide: before Tao left the building or after he connected with the squad?

DANIELS - Forget about her, no way she could have known about the in custody suicide to go to Goldman, much less
They might decide to do it someone out of the blue for Drama's sake, but the only one that would make sense in terms of character is Gabriel.
He has ambition, a strict moral code, and Brenda's actions have probably limited his career more than anyone else. He has also talked about going into politics in the past. And he is the only one who would conceivably be bothered by the gang member's death.
Unless they write a really good explanation why anyone else but Pope would "rat out" Brenda then it wouldn't make much sense. Pope is the only person with a grudge against the LAPD. Remember that this investigation came about when the new Chief of police was in charge meaning that Pope was still fuming for being demoted to captain. I hope they dont try to turn around blame one of my fav characters (that would include everyone btw).
I'm thinking Pope or Taylor, however, in the back of my mind I am remembering there was a female member of the squad for the first few years who dated Gabriel and then left the squad. Could she be mad, felt forced out and wanted revenge? Though I don't know how she would have all of the info that has been leaked.
I was not very pleased with this season. Lots of its characteristics were lost. Was sb else writing the script? Where was Brenda with her "Thank you! Thank you all!"???? Where were her parents, her cat, her husband (we saw so little of him and he was humorless)? I am the only one feeling that it was a depressing season?
Philip Stroh is after Brenda... Goldman said a colleague....!!! Who's plays dirtier then cops...?? Lawyers! The person who has biggest vendetta would be Stroh, that's how Brenda will close Stroh case.
Brenda doesn't make friends easily, and definitely make enemies quicker. She is a CIA trained interrogation expert. She worked in Washington, D.C. at one time. And the FBI is not very happy with her. For the ambulance chaser to have gotten all that information so quickly (most of which is not even in the record), connect all the high level government dots. Then there's Captain Taylor who made a comment about sucking up to the wrong guy when Chief Tommy died suddenly. Somebody high level is out to get Brenda.
I don't think the mole is Raydor either - she told Brenda to get her own lawyer, recommended Garvin, watched her back on the whole settlement issue, and didn't even want to pursue the investigation further in the first place.
It just has to be Pope the longer I think about it.
I think the mole is Pope. I think he has sour grapes over Brenda getting her way all the time and always being right...and for her making the short list for Cheif when he didn't. He has the access to all those cases without rising suspicion from anyone. And Fritz (whose instincts I would trust) tells Brenda not to trust him. Plus he could have swept the Baylor IA investigation under the rug when he became acting chief and didn't, and he wanted Raydor NOT to tell Brenda that HE was the one keeping the investigation open.
I also don't know why the suicided suspect said the bullet was meant for Brenda unless the family of Terrell Baylor hired him for a contract. But even still a lot of other pieces would have to fall in place for him to get in the interview room with a gun.
I think Gabriel knows Breanda has done a lot for him in the past - making sure his love life was kept under wraps, including the break-up that threatened the squad, wiping away his hitting a suspect and the
it's gotta be Taylor - the leak about the suicide happened SO FAST. It was literally within the time it took the police to get the body out of the interview room that the slimy lawyer knew of the suicide. So it has to be someone who is right there, and no one on her squad would turn her like that. Pope - he's getting jaded, and he's not looking out for her anymore, but they have a long connection that seems really solid. The only person we don't really know that much about is Taylor. My money's on him.
it can't be her lawyer, he came on board much later, and Rayder was the one to suggest him, she is on Brenda's side. plus he gave Brenda hell that the opposing lawyer knew about the suicide earlier than he did.
oh and if he really wanted Brenda to hire him to get info he wouldn't have set his cost so high out of her price rage. if Fritz didn't use his inheritance money she wouldn't have hired him at all.
i think the mole is her lawyer or taylor
Pope: He would be almost as ruined as Brenda if the case proceeds. But maybe when they failed to nail her at the state level things got out of hand?
Tao, Provenza, Flynn, Sanchez, Buzz: Waaay out of character.
Gabriel: Maybe, but they'd have to develop aspects of his character they haven't yet. And he hasn't always been so goody goody. Remember when he beat up that guy in the interview room a season or two ago?
Taylor: Maybe but it doesn't really feel right. He's more into rule bending than Brenda. Hardly the type to go to so much trouble over rule bending. He'd try to get her some other way.
Raydor: Not only is she getting her own show, she is the one who saved Brenda on the State case, by insisting that she get her own lawyer, and by pushing her toward a really good one. Left to her own devices, Brenda would have gone down in state court.
Fritz: Remember, Fritz is the one who secretly dipped into his own savings to pay for the really
It's either buzz, or it's going to be totally random, perhaps Irene Ravara. She only transferred departments, remember. And she never had the loyalty to Brenda that the rest of her team has.
It makes no sense for any of the characters we know and love -- even Pope -- to be the mole. Commander Taylor is the only dubious character, so it must be him.
My question is this: The suspect who shot himself in the interview room said the bullet was meant for Brenda. What did he mean by that? Is there something else going on?
I think the mole is Sanchez. All the questionable
I agree with an earlier poster re the murdering lawyer from a previous season. This is what Goldman was referring to when listing his grievances with Brenda. Goldman said something about maligning a colleague of his. If you remember the murderous layer walked and at the time I felt he would meet up with Brenda again. As for the mole, Fritz has told Brenda more than once not to trust Pope. It's either Pope or will be something/somebody out of left field. I'm just glad she's coming back.
it's coming back in November for six episodes and then in the summer again for six episodes(not sure for how many but it is coming in the summer as well for sure). season seven is very extended!!
