Major Crimes really busted their butts on tonight's episode of THE CLOSER, In Custody.ÃÂ The death they were investigating was determined to be a suicide and then it turned into a murder. They thought the meth-head boyfriend did it, but when the ex-husband confessed before committing suicide, it looked like the case was finally closed until his mom confessed. Grandma wasn't high on my list of suspects, so I have to say that I was very surprised.
What the squad didn't realize was that Brenda was evaluating their performances on this case. Flynn's attitude with the suspect (Tatum: Did she O.D.? Flynn: Yeah, on lead.ÃÂ) didn't exactly win him points with Brenda. She also wasn't too impressed with Provenza's willingness to overlook key evidence in their case (Chief, we've already solved this case once. It's wrapped up with a bow on top. If you untie that bow, you know what'll happen.ÃÂ). Detective Gabriel is the only one who passed, although I didn't catch whether she was considering Lieutenant Tao or not (he does seem to have trouble standing up to Provenza and Flynn, unlike Gabriel). Did anyone else take Fritz's suggestion to hire outside the department as a hint to hire him? That could be interesting!
Also surprising tonight was that Sanchez has temporary custody of the little boy from last week, Ruben. Sanchez took that case so hard, and I think this is a wonderful development for both him and for the boy. Why couldn't everyone else see that?
