Interesting that Brenda finally realized Pope has not been watching her back. The peek at next week's episode that showed Pope yelling at her with real animosity...things are not peachy keen in Major Crimes.

Any bets on whether Pope will be in the new series or not?

No, he won't. The rest of the squad will be back, with Taylor reduced to recurring status and a new detective added. Fritz will also be back (recurring), surprisingly.

AMC has dropped The Killing.

Things don't look good for Brenda Leigh Johnson. Her mother has died, her cancer-survivor father is alone, and Taylor has been promoted over her. Taylor! The preview for next week's finale had such a sad look to it.

But the solution to the leak was a good one, and I'm glad that's solved.

I'm hoping that preview was one of those deliberately misleading ones that TBS likes to throw at you.

Tonight is The Closer finale. I miss Brenda Leigh already! The promo that shows Brenda leaving in the elevator while part of her squad watches her go...every face shows a look of regret. I hope I'm misinterpreting that.

I hope so too. I want to see her go out with a bang, not a whimper.

It was sort of a bang AND a whimper. In the very last episode, she did something she'd never done before (attack a suspect). It looked as if she'd lost it, took the bait...but she got what she wanted (Stroh's DNA). She literally gave up her job to nail a killer. If that isn't a heroic act, I'd like to know what is.

She could have stayed on the job if she'd accepted the reprimand. That was the excuse for her leaving, if not the real reason. Brenda Leigh knew her days in Major Crimes were numbered. The new Major Crimes has an edgier look to it, doesn't it? That's probably a good idea.

And a prestigious new job just fell into her lap...she didn't even have to ask for it. Now Brenda is a bureau chief, and that's a promotion. I thought that was a little too pat, but she had to be going TO something and not just AWAY from something. And she took Gabriel with her, solving his problem as well.

The new show, Provenza and Flynn are being right bastards. They gave Brenda a hard time when she was new until they came to respect her. So probably that's what will happen again, but I think it's going to be a little harder this time.
