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.

    is it me or does the undercover officer seem really reluctant to give up his 6 years undercover. i think he could flipped script while undercover and it top Z douche bag leader

  2. Luis Roman says:

    I fully expect to see Nolan get sacrificed in the course of this finale – he practically screamed “PAWN” the minute he was revealed as an undercover operative.

      (To Sharon) Amen to Rusty, please send him off somewhere FAR FAR away. (To
      Sunshine) I’m with you, an arc of maybe one or two continuances in a plot line is enough for me. The longer they drag on, the less interest it holds for me–and that goes for ALL crime shows, ie Bones, Castle, The Mentalist, SVU, etc.

    Hmmm. it won’t play, just stalls about 1/2 way through loading :(

    I hate this serialized crime story, to back to one crime per episode. I’ve lost track of what this is all about quite frankly, my attention wanders when it’s on.

  5. Babi Godoi says:

    These 3 part episodes were outstanding, seriously. So great to see more about Sharon and today we are going to see the in the field again, just that is already a motive to celebrate. They case is SUPER intense and I can’t wait to see who is the big heat behind this, the fandom is going crazy with theories, hahaha.

  6. Claire Procter says:

    Why is there so much about Rusty? In a real police department he wouldn’t be allowed to be in sensitive areas and butting in to everything. And why does his mother have to be such a big part of the storyline. Wish they would just get back to the cases which are much more interesting or just call it the Rusty Show and we won’t watch it. There’s a great cast on this show but with Rusty being so involved in everything it takes away from the real stories.

    Rusty and Sharon has got to go……..

    • Laura C says:

      Mary, I agree Rusty has to go, but I say take his bio mother with him and leave Sharon, I’ve always liked her. Rusty and bio mom are equally whiny & annoying, adding NO thing to the story line but taking away from the other more relevant & better characters.

  8. Jenn says:

    The actor who plays Buzz is married to the man who is the main writer. The Rusty thread is designed to teach us all the joys of the gay life. Rusty is not going anyplace.

  9. MajorChris says:

    I just saw on the MC Facebook page where they’re calling this the “season finale” as in no more for Season 5. Hmm. What happened to the preseason extension?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Social media pages are typically run by 20-year-old interns who simply don’t know better. There are more episodes to come.
