'The Closer': Brenda Breaks Down Over Father's Cancer

Despite the fact that he hindered the investigation this week, Brenda found herself in need of help from Dr. Parr on " The Closer " (Mon., 9 p.m. ET on TNT). She had to separate herself from her job and the case and appeal to him as a daughter terrified about losing her father to cancer. "I’m not looking for a decent human being. I’m looking for a great doctor, and you’re it," she told him in tears. "I can’t lose my father." After her emotional breakdown, the doctor agreed to help. It remains to be seen if his brilliance in the field can save her father, but it was a huge think that both of them were able to put aside their differences and find common ground on the field of basic human decency. "These last episodes are really turning up the heat. Great emotional battles are being waged and lines are being drawn," a reviewer for TV Fanatic wrote. It certainly looks like things are building to an emotionally powerful farewell for Brenda and "The Closer," before saying hello to "Major Crimes." There are only three episodes left for "The Closer," Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on TNT.

Kyra Sedgwick has dubbed the final six episodes of "The Closer" "the crying season" -- not necessarily for what happens on screen, but for how she and the cast and crew handled filming the end of the series."It was a lot of tears and sadness about it coming to an end, and loss because the fact is that even if you'll continue to see these people, it will never be the same -- that constant connection and constant creation will never be the same," Sedgwick tells Zap2it.
