On tonight's episode of THE CLOSER, Heart Attack, Brenda and her team each had some truly life changing decisions to make. The twist was that the decisions effected other people's lives rather than their own. The issues they were wrestling with weren't easy, but I think they each made the right decision in the end. I thought tonight's episode was just as good as the Provenza and Flynn hilarity on last week's episode, just in a more thought-provoking way.
Brenda, Flynn, and Gabriel had to solve the grisly murders of young gangbangers whose bodies were being dumped in garbage bags. When the medical examiner, Dr. Morales, realized the bodies were missing organs (The pinatas are empty), it became apparent that the clinic was somehow involved. The organ-snatching doctor, Dr. Navarro, was brilliantly played by Bruno Campos, who managed to seem crazy and completely logical at the same time. I loved how Brenda was interrogating him while he was still committing the crime. Their exchange was chilling:
Dr. Navarro: I can make this place safer than you can.
Brenda: Who gave you the right to play God?
Dr. Navarro: The position was vacant, so I took it.
He raised all sorts of interesting moral questions and pointed out that he was not only making the streets safer, but also saving innocent lives. I thought for sure Brenda would take the heart into evidence, so I was surprised (and happy) that she let the transplant take place.
