Summer is here and so is the art of the deal on Major Crimes. Don’t forget to tune in Monday, June 10 (and set your DVRs), when Capt. Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell) and one of television’s best ensemble casts returns for a second season.
Seven million viewers watched Major Crimes last year, ranking Major Crimes as basic cable’s No. 1 new series of 2012. As their second season opens, Lt. Provenza (GW Bailey) continues to drop hints about retiring while Lt. Flynn (Tony Denison) commits to 10,000 steps a day to help his health.
Rusty (Graham Patrick Martin) has settled in nicely with Capt. Raydor, and so has the squad with the leadership change, but a new Deputy District Attorney — Emma Rios (Nadine Velazquez) — who’d rather win in court than make deals threatens to derail the status quo of the department.
As part of her job, the DA interviews Rusty on his upcoming court appearance, leading Capt. Raydor to use one of Brenda Leigh Johnson’s favorite moves, closing her blinds on the whole matter.
(When we interviewed Kyra Sedgwick about The Closer, the show from which Major Crimes is spun off, Sedgwick told us, “I just think that’s the window through which Brenda sees the world, and also through which the world sees her. She always feels watched, but I also don’t think she wants to be private. For her to be intimate with someone is very, very scary for her. One of the most fascinating things about the character is that she’s so intuitive about other people, yet she’s so completely non-intuitive about herself. And she has absolutely no interest in becoming so.”)
Major Crimes Season 2 begins June 10 at 9pm ET/PT on TNT, and airs Mondays.
