I absolutely loved The Closer! What a great ending and wonderfully written. Kyra and the cast are suburb actors and a joy to watch. I wish the best for Kyra and Corey Reynolds and J. K. Simmons. I'm looking forward to watching Major Crimes. So thrilled the rest of the cast is staying. I think Mary McDonnell is a really good actor. Loved her in "Dancing with Wolves".

I will miss Brenda Leigh so much - this was the best show on TV! I am happy for Kyra who does not have to leave her family for half the year - but she will be sorely missed! Major Crimes looks OK - but it does not have the same excitement or heart without Brenda!

If you hadn't heard Kyra will be back from time to time on Major Crimes..It is obvious Stroh's story line is not over...

Niki, I'll have to go back to the first episode to see that "it looks like love" line. Very good memory...or you must have the season on DVD.

It was certainly a night of twists and turns. I searched high and low to find a "Brenda" purse, and my search ended a couple of years ago on Ebay. It was a fitting gift, as you seldom saw her without it. When the team presented it to her, I too, found myself reflecting on how much they had grown to love her (after asking for reassignments when she came on-board). I'm certainly going to miss the show, but I live in the South and the accent is common to me. But, as much as anyone, I'm going to miss Willie Rae. Her's death scene was the most realistic I've ever seen, movie or tv.

Am I the only man who never missed a show? I thought it was great and really liked the entire crew. Wish it would have continued.

How cathartic it was to watch Brenda physically battle Stroh twice, once when he had the cojones to mention her mother and she launched herself into him in the elevator, scratching at him to get the DNA, and then in her kitchen, so fiercely fighting for her life and the boy's--who I was hoping Brenda and Fritz might foster. It was so visceral and perfect, since we're so used to Brenda using words to get the bad guys. I wanted her to kill Stroh, but she knew she couldn't do that; she had climbed over the line too many times in the past and gotten into trouble for it, and she didn't want to take that liberty in front of Rusty. I will never forget Brenda Leigh Johnson or the brilliant performances of every single actor in THE CLOSER. Bravo, all!

I will be mourning the loss of this show for a long, long, time. I loved the series and never missed it. Brenda was the heart of this series. I watched the new Major Crimes spin off only because of curiosity, but will not be watching it in the future. It was a big disappointment. I also would have like to have seen Mr. Stroh killed off or at least watched him being marched off to prison for life. Can't we bring Brenda back in her new job. Thank yewwwww Brenda you made monday nights exciting, now what am I going to do??? Major Crimes is boring without you.

Yes, they did take some liberties with the story line, and perhaps the writers did stretch a little to fit some things together, but I do not see how they could have done a better job with wrapping up this original and delightful series. I loved it.
