Under special request from the Mayor's office, Assistant Chief Pope assigns Brenda and the Major Crimes Unit to look into the disappearance of Adriana Gomez, a nanny who worked for a rich LA family. Gomez had worked for the family for eleven years, was an American citizen and in every way seemed responsible and reliable. Police find her in her home, savagely raped and beaten to death. DNA ties her attacker to two other cases, also Hispanic nannies, leading Brenda to believe they are dealing with a serial rapist and murderer. Throughout the investigation, Capt. Raydor shadows Brenda in conducting some type of side investigation. Everyone assumes it's a background check on Pope, who has applied for the Chief's position, but Raydor has a surprise for her.

Please--get rid of Sharon Raydor!
27 October 2019 | by marsmiiSee all my reviews

Cannot stand her twitching her face-drives me nuts! Retire lady! Love Brenda so much; her looks, personality, how she connects with everyone. She is perfect in her role👍🏻 It was a sad day when she left & Raydor took over. Major Crimes just can't compare to The Closer!
