As Emmy winner Kyra Sedgwick — whose decision it was to exit the cop drama after this next, spread-out, 21-episode run — told me, Season 7 is about Brenda getting “her comeuppance,” in some part due to a lawsuit filed against her and the Major Crimes Division in the upcoming opener.
That same season premiere, it should be noted-slash-teased, features one of the series’ best cold opens ever, and one of its most angry confessions coaxed from a suspect. And, as Corey Reynolds (aka Gabriel) shared with TVLine, “The last few minutes will absolutely leave your jaw. On. The. Floor. Something unbelievably unexpected happens.” Having now seen that moment, I must totally agree.
