I don't think I can wait to see how they do this transition!  I read that all the major characters are staying, except for Gabriel and Pope.  This has me wondering if Gabriel is the leak in the department...

I also read that Fritz will be a recurring character, which makes me wonder how they will end the Closer and Brenda.  Too many questions!!!!

I cannot believe that The Closer is ending. I have been watching this show since the very first episode and I have every season on DVD. I am very curious on how they are going to end thing and very sad at the same time.

Hmmmm, I didn't hear that Fritz is going to be a recurring character, but of course I haven't been reading that much about the new show.

I am not sure what to think about "Major Crimes." I am not a huge Captain Rader fan.  I am sad to see Gabriel go. He has always been one of my favorites.  It doesn't look like Corey Reynolds(Gabriel) has anything in the works.

I am also a big fan of The Closer and will be so sad to see it go. I didn't like Capt Raydor at first but she grew on me (as they wanted her to!). I had guessed the leak, after they brought Gabriel's gf in for just one episode...but we still don't know exactly how he gets written out of the show, what makes him leave after Brenda asked him to stay. And of course Brenda will move on too... but will she solve the Stroh case first or will they leave that as unfinished business that she must let go of? Still some questions to be answered!

On the Major Crimes webpage they have a list of the characters and Fritz is there, as Brenda's husband and FBI liason. So I guess they're staying in L.A....I had wondered if they would have her move back to Atlanta. Anyway with Fritz still in the show it gives me hope that Brenda might make an occasional appearance.

I think its a great idea to do the double-header format for the Finale and First Episode. I won't have time to get too sad about the end of The Closer because I'll immediately get drawn into the new show. I keep reminding myself that it will be a different show so not to expect some version of the old show. Hopefully it will not disappoint.

Okay, so now that we have had a couple of episodes of Major Crimes what are you thinking about it??? My jury is still out. I am still on the fence with Capt. Rader. I don't like what is happening with "The Boys." That is what I call the guys that worked with Brenda. I really think that Provenza deserves some kind of promotion. He is sooooooooo good when he is in an athoritative role. So that is my two sense right now.

Although I am curious where this story line is going to go about Rader having Rusty in her house is going. This could be really good for the both of them and it may calm Rader down a bit.
