Major Crimes Sneak Peek: Mario Lopez Has a Surprise for the Detectives

This week on TNT’s Major Crimes (Monday, 9/8c), the investigation of a death that took place during the broadcast of a reality-TV competition winds up — of course — involving Mario Lopez and his infotainment program.

“Reality Check,” says Major Crimes creator James Duff, “is a very odd episode but a very good episode about a murder that happens during a reality-show competition” in which dysfunctional married couples go on a scavenger hunt using a “driver’s ed” car that has two steering wheels and two sets of brakes.

As it turns out, one contestant may have been driven to murder. “[One couple’s car] drives right off the side of a cliff, and one of them gets out and one of them doesn’t — and it all happens on camera,” Duff says. “It’s pretty funny. And pretty dark. And pretty emotional too.”

In the sneak peek above, Extra host Lopez is interviewing the surviving member of the couple in question when he uncorks a surprise that is sure to “drive” the MCD crazy!
