The Closer Creator James Duff Previews "The Big Bang"

Those audience members familiar with The Closer's dedication to authenticity will not be surprised to find that several things have changed from Season 5 to Season 6. The LAPD moved into new headquarters, and so have we; their Chief-of-Police retired and so will ours; the race to fill this all-important post consumed the city's police department for a time, as it will also completely consume Assistant Chief Will Pope, who hopes to claim this position as his own. Pope's ambitions will forever alter his relationship with his subordinate, friend and ex, Brenda Leigh Johnson. And so, because the center of gravity completely changes for all our characters this year, we adopted the theme of attraction.

This topic suggests the physical world and, indeed, our first episode revolves around the two most powerful attractive forces in the universe: love and gravity. It is gravity that holds us to this earth; it is gravity that holds the earth inside the solar system; it is gravity that keeps our solar system inside our galaxy; it is gravity that drags our first victim off the roof of his house and into the electrical wires surrounding his residence. Though, to be fair, love had something to do with it, too. Not to mention a gunshot wound to the head.
