Major Crimes had proven that it is her own show, transitioning successfully from another great show, The Closer. The show had been darker, edgier, and the characters more distinctive. Strong performances all round thus far in the series, especially from Ms. Mary McDonnell. I hope more stories will come in the future that are centric around one of the other main characters, like Lt. Provenza in the earlier episodes and Lt. Tao in this episodes.
One thing to note, there had been a lot of memorable bad guys since the days from The Closer, but somehow, this episode villain sickens me so much that I wished that he would live in suffering for the rest of his miserable life.
P.S. If Brenda can come back for a special appearance, it would really make my day!
