The Closer > The Closer Review: It Hit The Fan > Comments Page 2
I wanted to yell at that screen when I found out it was Ann I wanted to say that b**** so badly. That is one of the coldest things I have seen or heard of happening on any show and to do it to someone as earnest as Gabriel made me hurt even more for him. I am glad it was not a member of the team because it would have been too easy to make them go away and I agree Provenza's candor in handling the situation was great. All in all, it was a great captivating episode.
Raydor was never petty, flighty or despicable. She was a pro, doing her job, which made others unhappy. Whether the show can survive the loss of Brenda is another question.
I felt slightly let down by the mole, but at the same time it was very well acted. Bravo, Corey Reynolds. The recent episodes that have seen Pope, Daniels, even Taylor reinforce their bonds with Brenda have been great. Pope was not just trying to get the top job, he was doing his best for Brenda.
I thought it was excellent that Sanchez refused the apology - he was right all along and he just couldnt forgive. Provenza showed class in pushing the squad to listen. Flynn once again showed style and yet still wanted him to transfer.
Why did Buzz have a badge?
Will millions of fans not get their desire to see Goldman get his comeuppance?
What a great show!
Pope isn't going to be part of the new series.
The producers have made pretty clear that Fritz and Brenda aren't breaking up, and also that Kyra will be doing occasional guest shots.
So she is going to remain in LA. I think from all of the above it is pretty clear that she will be made Chief of Police. She was after all the second choice in the process, and Pope never made the cut. In the real world she would have been named to the post months ago.
after spemding serveral seasons introducting Raydor as a back stabbing, petty,flighty and all out dispicable character, I can't believe they expect us to start likeing her a as a lead character. Give me a brake. Bring on full epoisodes of Provenza and Flynn and the others - and drop the witch!
Carissa, I'm with you. Poor Sgt. Gabriel! And, poor Brenda, too!! You're right; to the day she dies she'll wonder what her Mama's last words were going to be. . . I don't want it to end. :'(''
I may be in the minority here, but I am disappointed in the last several episodes. With this being the final season for the Closer I would have expected blowout storylines but we're given rehashed storylines about her parents, the leak crap and the rapist lawyer. And, in each episode so far this season Brenda is portrayed as week and flighty. Goodbye Brenda Leigh - its unfortunate that you're going out with a fizzle instead of a bang.
I can't stand Mary McDonnell (Capt Raydor) so I'll not be continuing on with the spinoff, major crimes series. I'd rather have a spinoff focusing on Flynn and Provenza in a sitcom.
Provenza was right - any one of them could have been the source (including Sanchez) in the same way; it just happened to be David. I knew Ann had to be the link but did not think she had been directly recruited for the role from the start by Goldman. I just thought SHE was unintentionally dropping bits of information in her work that were picked up on by him. David was just shattered.
Just for the record, I give this episode 5 stars. I give the whole series 5 stars. I can't think of a bum episode in 7 seasons.
How/why will Brenda leave the unit? Will she leave to return to Atlanta to be with her father?
Another explosive episode! I think it was so well written, filled with drama and suspense. Just like the previous episode.
I'm so glad that Gabriel wasn't intentionally leaking. His friendship with Brenda was just so special, I knew he wouldn't sell her out.
I too could feel that there was no mean bone in his body. I felt like he was the victim, maybe even more so than the others.
Because the person he loved and trusted the most, betrayed him beyond belief.
Brenda's reaction was so touching...so real. And I also liked how Provenza handled this whole situation. I felt like he really helped made everyone feel at ease again.
I'll really miss this show once it's over, definitely one of the best shows ever.
I am not sure I'll be able to watch Major Crimes with Brenda not there..
I'm very happy that Julio chose not to accept Gabriel's apology. Julio is super loyal to Brenda. Let's not forget that even though Gabriel got in her face over the ex-gang member who killed his brother, Brenda, with Taylor's help covered for Gabriel when he beat the child/rapist/murderer.
I felt the girlfriend was a throwaway character when she first showed up, so it was easy to suspect Gabriel as being the leak, albeit unknowingly, but still the leak.
As for next week, I hope Brenda blows Phillip Stroh away, and that no one else close to her dies. I also hope to see Provenza slapped down by Raydor on a fairly regular basis. He might think he knows more than she does, but his behavior shows that he's not nearly as smart as she is.
I KNEW IT! ::does a little dance:: Gabriel's girlfriend was the leak. Ha!
it felt like a cop out, like they didn’t know how to end it because they couldn’t bring themselves to making one of the team’s finest the leak and building up true motive.
i love the show and will miss it terribly, and though i am happy that non of our guys is the leak in the true sense of the word it doesn’t feel satisfying to me at all.
Sanchez was the only one who didn't accept Gabriel's apology, which was fitting for Julio's character. Next to Brenda, Sanchez has been my favorite. He was the only one who told her he didn't find fault with how she handled Terrell Baylor. I was moved by his concern for her when he told her:
Sanchez: Chief, Goldman is here, in this print shed, right now. Everything you say and everything that you do will get back to him. You need to follow up without us. When you're not sure you can trust, chief, don't trust anyone.
Brenda: But Julio, these people are my friends.
Sanchez: That's what JRock was thinking when he parked the car.
