Major Crimes takes television's favorite squad of detectives - known to viewers from the hit series The Closer - into bold new territory. Set in the Los Angeles Police Department, the series stars Academy Award® and Emmy® nominee Mary McDonnell, G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni and Graham Patrick Martin. The Closer veterans Robert Gossett, Jon Tenney and Jonathan Del Arco will also appear.
The series picks up where The Closer leaves off, centering on what it takes to secure an airtight conviction, exploring how the police and prosecutors work together to build a solid case that will result in a suspect confessing, signing a plea agreement or being found guilty in a court of law. With the same stellar producing team in place, Major Crimes looks to deliver the same high caliber of action and drama of the hit series it follows.
01 - Reloaded
In the series premiere, there is little time for adjustment as the department rushes to reach a plea bargain when a string of grocery store robberies turns fatal. After proving to be a valuable source for the case, undercover police detective and military veteran Detective Amy Sykes (series star KEARRAN GIOVANNI) is transferred to Major Crimes. Meanwhile, Raydor takes a big step to protect teenager Rusty Beck (series star GRAHAM PATRICK MARTIN) after he runs away from his foster family.
02 - Before and After
Growing pains within Major Crimes become apparent as the division works to obtain justice in a brutal homicide that turns out to be more complicated than expected. Raydor struggles to gain the respect of her colleagues while also trying to supervise Rusty 24/7. The changes within the department may become more than Provenza can accept.
03 - Medical Causes
The facts become blurry in a case involving a fatal car crash at a nightclub. Meanwhile, Rusty can finally look forward to his mother's return.
04 - The Ecstasy and the Agony
A homicide case involving the Israeli mob and a self-proclaimed "intuitive life strategist" (guest star MICHAEL WEATHERLY - NCIS) leads Major Crimes to partner with the FBI. Plus, Provenza opens up to a suspect in a rare display of vulnerability and Rusty's first day of school doesn't go as planned.
05 - Citizen's Arrest
In a case involving a kidnapping-turned-homicide, the squad is pressured to work quickly before anyone else is hurt. Deputy District Attorney Andrea Hobbs (recurring guest star KATHE MAZUR - The Closer) becomes a valuable resource in the case. Meanwhile, DNA evidence proves that Rusty is more closely connected to the justice system than anyone might have expected.
06 - Out of Bounds
When a fatal shooting occurs in gang territory, Captain Raydor makes a bold move that could jeopardize her career and put Detective Sykes in harm's way. Meanwhile, Rusty makes it clear that he doesn't care to meet his biological father.
07 - The Shame Game
In a case where political agendas rise to the forefront, Major Crimes has a tough time keeping important confidential facts from leaking. Making matters even more difficult for Captain Raydor, the Department of Children and Family Services makes a shocking discovery concerning Rusty. Recurring guest star IAN BOHEN (Teen Wolf, Breakout Kings) appears as Daniel Dunn.
08 - Dismissed With Prejudice
When a murder conviction is overturned after eight years, Tao is forced to question his past actions. And Rusty struggles to be himself during his first outing with his father, Daniel Dunn (recurring guest star IAN BOHEN).
09 - Cheaters Never Prosper
A man from Las Vegas is found dead after an apparent overdose, but the facts become unclear as gritty details begin to unfold. Meanwhile, a series of strange events leaves Rusty and Raydor wondering if Dunn (recurring guest star IAN BOHEN) can be trusted.
