    This was another great episode where I was both interested in the weekly mystery and the personal drama going on with Rusty and Raydor. By the end of the episode, I was swearing for Rusty's behalf. Poor kid can't catch a break with his blood relatives. Its a good thing that he has Raydor an the M.C. crew on his side.
  • So glad The Closer transitioned into Major Crimes!!

    Hi--I'm just now catching up on the episodes of Major Crimes; still loving it! I miss. Sgt. Gabriel; would be nice to see him. Love the Rusty story line and enjoying that the other characters have more dialogue time to demonstrate their own complexity. This was such a terrific ensemble and I'm really glad The Closer transitioned into Major Crimes; nicely done.
  • It's all about Rusty

    The main focus to the episode for me was the continuation of the Raydor and Rusty storyline where Rusty spent the weekend with his father. The crime plot which involved a deceased cop and an identity theft ring. Check out my television weekly round up on Cine-Vision 101 on the link below:

  • The real story in this episode is about Rusty

    8.5
    I personally feel that the story of this episode is less about a creep who happen to be a cop, or a narcissistic, ego maniacal jerk who thinks he is the smartest person in the universe. The story is really about Rusty, and his relationship with Cpt. Raydor. The final scenes between shows just how much Cpt. Raydor displays an immense amount of control in her life and how Rusty had grown to trust her in all aspect of his life... ... as long as he is telling the truth.

    Regardless of the truth (which I feel is that the idiot sperm donor deserve a freaking torture), both characters had progressed a long way since last days The Closer and the early days of Major Crimes.

    Kudos to Ms. McDonnell for a very tempered display of emotions, showcasing just how much Cpt. Rador really cared about others while holding on to her need to be in complete control. This shows me that although the two characters are very different outwardly, Brenda and Sharon are more alike on the inside than earlier thought.moreless

    • Rusty: (about his fight with Daniel) Look, did I do anything I need to apologize for?
      Raydor: No. We are past the apology stage of our relationship with Mr. Dunn, and we have moved on to the "please don't let me drive over to his house and shoot him in the head" phase.

    • Daniel: Uh, so, uh, what's the problem?
      Raydor: You were supposed to pick Rusty up to spend your first weekend together last night, and you threw him by saying you couldn't come until today, and now you are two hours late, and Rusty doesn't want to go anymore. That's the problem.
      Daniel: I... didn't realize that being late was such a big deal.
      Raydor: For a child abandoned by his mother at a zoo and then stood up by her at a bus station, not showing up is a very big deal.
