  • The tension between Brenda and chief Pope comes to a head when he takes over her case involving the murder of a California Parole Board commissioner.

  • Sgt. Gabriel inadvertently receives a frantic call from California Parole Commissioner Danielle Ross, saying that someone is in her house. After police arrive at Danielle's home and find her dead, Brenda and Major Crimes investigate her murder. The woman had been trying to reach Det. Frank Verico, who dealt in stalking cases and who had urged her to ask for police protection after she told him someone had been in her house while she was away, but she refused to get help. Though Brenda approaches the case in her typically methodical way, Pope snaps, obviously worried about how this might bear on his chances for the Chief position. When Brenda suggests that he take over if he doesn't like her progress, Pope shocks her by doing just that. Now marginalized, she and her unit quietly look into the case her way to find the culprit.

  • After a parole board member is viciously murdered during a panicked phone call with Sgt. Gabriel, Pope announces an overreaching plan to boost the police department's image. His plan, however, hinges on Brenda first being able to solve the crime.
