Episode Summary

After Robbery/Homicide gets nowhere with a series of armed robberies at medical marijuana dispensaries, Chief Delk turns the investigation over to Major Crimes. The team is not sure why they are handed the case, but when the next robbery includes a murder, Chief Delk is proven right in his decision to have Major Crimes lead the investigation.

Meanwhile, Brenda is left to consider a possible promotion.

  • High Crimes! High Times and Provenza's sense of humor! This show just gets better with every episode!

    10
    With Pope's future in question, the future of Brenda's squad is also in jeopardy due to budget restraints and the new Chief of Police Delk. There have been robberies of marijuana dispensaries that Chief Delk worries will become more violent. As if on cue, there is another robbery and with it a murder of one of the owners. Delk removes the case from the Robbery Homicide Division and turns it over to Brenda, putting the cold case that Pope assigned them on the back burner. Provenza is none too happy having to assist the "drug dealers" so Delk makes him the liaison for the dispensary owners and the LAPD. It comes to his attention that there is someone coming in the night before the robbery staking out the security measures in place and that he was in one of the dispensaries that night so the team stakes out the dispensary the next morning. Sanchez's 'explanation' of two different kinds of pot is funny, Provenza's attitude is hilarious, the tongue-in-cheek jokes are a hoot! This episode is what makes The Closer the fine show that it is. It knows how to mix drama and comedy equally and brings us a brilliantly written, brilliantly acted show that I look forward to watching every week. I will miss Kyra when she departs but hope the other characters live on in the spin-off for another 7 or more seasons!moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Flynn: So now we're doing robberies?
      Brenda: Armed robberies, Lieutenant, 11 in a row by the same three men. That doesn't sound like a major crime to you?

    • Brenda: Why don't they just enter directly?
      Buzz: Most marijuana dispensaries have electronic security doors that only unlock from the inside.
      Provenza: And you know this because? (everyone looks at Buzz)
      Buzz: My mom has a prescription for pot.
      Brenda: Oh, what's wrong with her?
      Buzz: Insomnia and glaucoma. I, I have to guide her to the door sometimes.
      Flynn: Ever buy anything?
      Sanchez: How do you think he got the name Buzz?

    • Sam Dodson: You're using this tragedy as an excuse to shut us down.
      Provenza: Oh, please! The LAPD has already wasted enough time protecting you hippies and your Mary Jane.
      Chief Delk: Lieutenant Provenza! I'd like to speak to you for a moment please. (the two leave the room) Did you just say hippies and Mary Jane?
      Provenza: Yes, I did.
      Chief Delk: How old are you?
      Provenza: Six Chiefs and counting, which is how I know that if you deal drugs, you vastly increase your chances you'll end up dead. I'm low on sympathy here.
      Chief Delk: Too bad. Because as of now, you're the LAPD liaison to the medical marijuana community for the rest of this investigation.
      Provenza: What?
      Chief Delk: And I expect Chou to meet with the dispensary owners this evening and educate them about today's events.
      Provenza: (laughs) You can't be serious!
      Chief Delk: Do I look high to you?

    • Chief Delk: (after Brenda's team caught the suspects) I hear congratulations are in order.
      Brenda: Who'd you hear that from?
      Chief Delk: Commander Taylor. How else do we hear about anything in this building?
