Do we really have to be reminded that Cooper is gay at the beginning of EVERY episode? I'm getting tired of getting the gay agenda rammed down my throat no matter what TV show I watch. The first 5 minutes of totally gratuitous heavy handed propaganda had absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the episode, which was great.
In every cop drama on TV, you expect to see the rest of the team come to the rescue in the nick of time. Not here, though, which for that reason we can call it a surprise ending. I liked the Lucero character and was sad to see him get killed off.
