Major Crimes Summer Finale Sneak Peek: Will the Team Sacrifice a Pawn?

Desperate times call for desperate measures, the Major Crimes team realizes in this sneak peak from the TNT drama’s Season 5 summer finale.

In the conclusion to the summer-ending “White Lies” three-parter (airing Monday at 10/9c), Raydor’s squad inches closer to uncovering the elusive mastermind in the Dwight Darnell murders. Their next lead lies in Patrick Cox (played by Tobias Jelinek), an “old-school” Zyklon Brotherhood member whom they are trying to get to testify, in trade for WITSEC protection.

Cox isn’t quite biting, so Sharon and SOB deputy chief leader Fritz Howard mull sending in Wes Nolan (Witches of East End’s Daniel DiTomasso), a detective who has spent years undercover with Zyklon, to appeal to his old “friend.” But is the gamble worth blowing Nolan’s years-long cover? Press play above to find out.

Elsewhere in the summer finale, Buzz and Rusty’s investigation into the murder of Buzz’s father comes to an unexpected end.
