Recap

Brenda returned early from bereavement leave to work the case of an armed neighborhood security guard gunned down in cold blood. She was unable to return to her home because that's where Willie Ray died, and she and Fritz were living in a hotel.

Raydor had determined who the leak was and she and Pope hoped to have everything cleaned up before Brenda returned. Since she returned three weeks early, she was there when they confronted their suspect.

The suspect wasn't anyone in the department, but the significant other of Detective Gabriel. Ann had been paid by an opposing attorney during the lawsuit against major crimes to get dirt on the department. She was to infiltrate the department and report back what she learned. Gabriel was crushed and had no knowledge of what had been happening.

Brenda learned that Commander Taylor would be assuming Pope's role when Pope was promoted and realized that she had spent the last years of her life listening more to murderers than those she loved. She seemed determined to change that in the future. 

Despite learning of Detective Gabriel's role in the leak, she told him she could not work major crimes without him and he agreed to stay.

WHY! WHY! I agree Major Crimes is Brenda's and it will not be the same without Kyra Sedwick. Brenda is the show, it's her enter action with people that turn in to see. I hope the best for her in what ever she will chose to do but the Closer will always be Kyra's. Thanks for 7 years of good TV.

I was shocked to find Gabriels girlfriend the mole.I was very disappointed in
Sanchez's reaction to David's apology.Everyone else accepted.I will miss the
Closer.I remember her first pilot and was intrigued.I have been watching since.I love the program and have watched the reruns numerous times.In this
past episode where she says to Fritz she wishes her mother had a minute for
her now brought back so many memories of my own mother.I never had time.Now
she is gone and like Brenda will have to live with that.I hope Kyra Sedwick
comes back with another series soon.Good luck Kyra.

I hate to see the closer end, hopefully major crimes is just as good with the old cast on it.

Teresa: I agree. Now that both her kids are in college & their 20's her at home presence isn't as necessary as it has been previously.
Kevin is going to be away to work on his series. What's she gonna do with her empty nest? TNT, KEEP THE CLOSER!

Please offer her enough money to stay and leave The Closer alone. Brenda is the title and Major Crimes is HER unit. You want me to buy into Capt Ray as Brenda's replacement. You better not make David the leak or Fritz the leak. Life is about change but this is TV so lets have some happiness in this fantasy. Brenda is my girl. I will remain loyal to her.
