The Closer is an American police drama starring Kyra Sedgwick, who plays a Deputy Chief of Police at the LAPD. Sedgwick plays Brenda Leigh Johnson, an ex-CIA interrogator. She is a southern belle and her easy going charm has surprised more than one criminal during an interrogation. She always gets the bad guys. She was put in charge of the Priority Homicide division of the LAPD.

She’s had to deal with conflict from Commander Taylor, chief of detectives, since she was promoted over him from the outside to her current position. This conflict has been resolved in season 4. Commander Taylor is now one of her staunchest allies. Her team are seasoned veterans, some close to retiring like Lt Provenza, others like Sgt Gabriel just a few years into their police careers. Daniels was promoted off the squad and this season, there is a new conflict with Captain Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell), who investigates any civilian deaths in officer involved shootings.

Her personal life wasn’t always as stable as it is right now. She’s currently engaged to an FBI Agent named Fritz Howard, who helps her from time to time on some cases. They’ve just sold Brenda’s bungalow and moved into a temporary space as they search for a new house to buy.

Brenda is a severe workaholic, to the sacrifice of her personal relationships. She tends to micro-manage her investigations and take a close look at details. She loves junk food and sweets but is currently trying to lay off them. She usually hides all types of junk food in drawers, purses, and other places. She is also known to be a “bit of a slob”, commenting that she does not often get around to housework every day in one episode, and in another, during a small argument between her and Fritz over where her mail was, Fritz comments that “if she looked at her mail daily instead of once a week, she would know where they keep it”.

From wiki’s page.

The Closer is one of the best police dramas on television right now and is in its fourth season on TNT. Each summer sees 13 episodes. A feature length episode is shown over the holidays. For this season, the episode format has changed. The show has returned for five more episodes in 2009 and season 5 started out a few weeks ago.

I’ve been a bit lax about posting reviews, but rest assured that all Closer episodes were watched and reviewed. They just haven’t been posted. They will find their way onto this site.

Someone has been harvesting organs and the Chief investigates.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

* * * * *

Sanchez still has Ruben with him. Provenza is livid. They get a call for a case. Some human remains have been found.

Detective Mendoza is in charge of the case. She briefs the Chief that it has to do with the Mexican cartels. Mendoza tells everyone on her squad that the Chief is in the running for the Chief of Police job. This is the 3rd body found like this in the last few weeks.

They find a missing person matching the 1st victim, Pedro Mota. Mota’s mom arrives. He’s been missing for 2 months.

The Chief and Gabriel go to see the clinic where Pedro got treatment. He got a pin into his ankle here.

The Chief finds out that Pedro had a kidney, a liver, and a heart missing. A heart, liver, and the kidneys were missing on the last body. The second body was a pile of bones.

Tao and Provenza take up the investigation to find Ruben’s mom. They both think that Sanchez isn’t being honest. Tao dumped Sanchez’s computer. He hasn’t been trying to find Ruben’s mom. Sanchez isn’t giving back the kid. Provenza tells Tao to start looking for the mother.

The 1st victim was a child-molesting rapist and the 2nd victim was involved in some robberies.

They start looking into organ harvesting. They bring in Oscar Garcia, a kid who might have received Pedro’s liver. They found a direct donor. They tell the cops that they found the donor through ancestry.com. They didn’t know about him before the day of the surgery. The father isn’t talking much. He says that Sancho lives in Mexico. It’s very sketchy the way that Oscar got his organ.

At the clinic, a lot of scans were run to check if Pedro was a match for other patients. It was ordered by Dr. Luis Navarro. They go to his hospital. He’s about to perform another transplant surgery. A girl is about to get a new heart. They are waiting for the heart.

The Chief, Gabriel, and Flynn go back to the La Fe clinic. It’s obvious that someone is harvesting organs. They find him harvesting some more organs. Navarro says that he’s killed 5 people. He started out using someone’s else’s murder victim and then graduated to killing them. He’s been killing the kids involved in the rape of a 12-year old girl. The Chief let the heart and organs go to their recipients.

Fritzi has found Ruben’s mom. She picks him up. Julio wants to have dinner with Maria and Ruben.
