    Man, I loved this show. Very clever twists and turns and a great guest appearance by actor Andy Daly. Provenza and Flynn were their usual goofy excellent selves and even Mary McDonnell had a really nice departure from her usual serious Sharon Raydor persona. Great stuff!

    I've been a faithful fan through both shows from day one. I know there are subtle, but funny spots that make the character of this drama. BUT.... this show was so silly and stupid, I fast forward it through to find any life saving material, to which I sadly am disappointed. This cannot continue in this direction.

    This episode would have been a great drinking game! How many times do they refer to an old movie? Even Brewster's Millions was in there, and I am sure I missed a couple. This show usually deals with such serious topics, it was refreshing to watch an entire show that was light and fun. Between Eternal Meadows offering eternal life to rich people to dog murder to neighbors just wanting to get rid of the enjoyed every minute of this show! The icing on the cake was the fake detective impersonating poor Rusty and getting his job. I sincerely hope they bring him back again, not too soon, but he is a great character.moreless

    Provenza and Flynn were driving around with Rusty in the backseat when suddenly out of nowhere they were called to the scene of a murder. However, when they arrived on the scene, they saw "Captain" Baird in person otherwise known as the kook that thinks he's a real detective by the name of Dick Tracy. The victim is actually a dog, the dog that was made an heir to a rather eccentric heiress's $20 million and Baird believes both the dog and the heiress were dog died from arsenic poisoning, that part is true, but Marcella was sick and whoever knew about her chemo treatment would also have known how easily they could hide poisoning her within all the treatments she was getting. Marcella gave the bulk of her money to Eternal Meadows and Eternal Meadows collected her body before the coroner could get their hands on the remains. They then incinerated the body, but weirdly kept the head. Eternal Meadows are firm believers in giving people eternal life and they keep the heads of their patrons for percentages of their estates in order to one day bring back to life their patron's head on a younger body and to test Marcella's head for signs of poison MC had to override her will and defrost her. When Sharon said, she chose this wig and Flynn said i cant look away, Provenza said Marcella was robbed and Sharon said "No Thats Just What She Paid For This Wig", sorry i had to laugh. Suffice it to say Rusty saw someone using the passcode to leave her house on the day the dog died. It was Mr. Kleiner, he poisioned the dog's food and killed Marcella. Fantastic Episode.moreless

    • This episode contains a major goof. Lieutenant Tao says, "How are we going to prove arsenic poisoning with this?" upon learning that Marcella Brewster was cremated and holding up a photo of her urn. In the season 3 episode of The Closer, The Round File, it is explained that arsenic is a heavy metal and therefore ashes can be tested for arsenic. (Since the victim was taking medication with arsenic in it, it's possible that they do need a tissue sample to get an accurate test and that the ashes wouldn't have sufficed, but at the point in the episode when Tao makes the above statement, it hasn't yet been discovered that she was taking medication that contained arsenic, so Tao and the rest of the squad should have pursued the testing of the ashes.)
