The final six episodes begin July 9th. If you go to the show's page at the TNT site, you can write a Thank Yewww! note to Brenda.
A week after the finale, Major Crimes begins. We can set up a thread once it gets closer, but from the cast photo the only missing people I see are Kyra, JK Simmons (Pope) and Corey Reynolds. I read a blog that I can't link that says that Robert Cossett (Taylor) gets a promotion and makes guest appearances. They are going to add a hot young hunk to the show with his showcase happening on the finale of The Closer. The emphasis moves from the confession to the deal with more FBI and district attorneys; away from radical, out of the box to working with the system.
I just hope it doesn't turn into a by-the-numbes crime show.
