I believe Goldman has placed listening devices in various places in the department. He's definitely working with Stroh!

Any one think about Daniels? Lp

I keep remembering Peter Goldman saying he knew his way around, he didn't need anyone to show him out. I wonder if Goldman moonlights as a janitor and reads all their notes when they are not there at night.

Brenda wouldn't leave if the leak is anyone other than Pope. Or Taylor working for Pope.

For Taylor or any member of her squad, Brenda would just transfer them out of Major Crimes and her murder room in an instant. Finis.

But for Pope...she has to work for him and with him. She can't get away from the terrible disloyalty and stabbing her in the back. She can never trust him not to sabotage her or her career or Major Crimes again. She can't trust him not to lie to her.

So, she leaves the LAPD.

Leak candidates?

Pope would be too obvious. Plus, a position as police commissioner has just opened up, leaving an obvious path of cascading promotions to get folks who won't be back for the sequel off-screen without any bloodshed or career collapses, and that might be difficult if he were the leak.

I would believe Gabriel had a heart-changing moment in that car when Brenda told him to drive, except that he was the one Goldman tried to turn the others against.

I think it's Sanchez, and I think he had an attack of guilt and tried to protect Brenda from the worst. Either that or he's twisted enough to try to avert suspicion.

My second choice would be Taylor. This show is not known for its subtlety.

Taylor is the mole and Pope knows it. Pope wants to be Chief, but he has to get Brenda out of the way. He's been letting Taylor do the dirty work for him.

If it’s Pope then he's more despicable than I thought. However, he might still harbor resentment that Brenda had a better chance to become top dog. If he is the leak, then he does not have the required integrity to become chief.
What about Daniels? Did she leave on good terms? Could she be privy to what's going on?
Taylor is too obvious. He seems to finally respect Brenda these days, so could they make him the snake? If so, the writers are lazy.
Not Buzz, too goody-goody.
Not Flynn. Once he came over to her side, he stayed loyal.
Provenza doesn’t care enough, plus, he’s just putting in his time for his pension.
Sanchez is too loyal. Tao has too much integrity.
As for the attorney, too bad they didn't use Tom Blanchard, he was hilarious. Pellegrino's character was too foo-foo to be believed or taken seriously.
The best solution to solve the mystery just might be seeing Peter Goldman hanging from the flagpole by his feet until he gives up the name of the leak.

I think it must be Taylor. Didn't Pope and Brenda both come to Los Angeles from DC or somewhere. And wasn't Taylor already there? Seems he would have the most reason to dislike both Pope and Brenda.

1) Pope and Taylor were the only ones who knew that Captain Rayder said she was going to retire. So it's between those two.

2) Pope was the only one involved in negotiating the settlement that resulted in the Johnson Law, the name of which will permanently connect Brenda with a scandal that'll prevent her from being chief.

Ergo, the leak is Pope.

I love the show. My feeling on the leak, and it may sound crazy is Buzz. Someone that doesn't say much, and the character is down played right now. The other characters mentioned are to front and center and would be thought of right away. It is someone you really aren't going to miss when the show ends.and the sequel begins.
