Major Crimes 5.13

A thrilling and emotional episode illustrating why this is now one of the very best shows on TV.

  • This 3-parter wasn’t as good as the 5-parter from early in the year but it was still some of the best crime drama storytelling you would ever see anywhere.
  • The script set up a genuinely compelling mystery and was able to engage us, get us invested, and - after 3 chapters - give us a dramatic and exciting payoff.
  • We also had the conclusion of the long-running Buzz b-story. The final scenes of this were as good as, if not better than, the main story. In fact, the a-story was slightly predictable in the way it brought a gun into play in the final seconds whereas the b-story successfully switched gears in it’s final minutes. Brilliant.
