Review - The Closer Season 6 Episode 2 Help Wanted

"Help Wanted" was rolling along with an average story about women getting raped without anything really standing out, and then reached a shattering point with an exhilarating standoff, ending with the ICE agent being shot in the head by Fritz.

I already dislike Pope, but he was more of a tool in "Help Wanted" than usual. This time, he has Brenda take a missing person case only because the mayor is involved. Once again, the only thing he cares about is his image--in this case, what the mayor thinks.

The final shocker was not unexpected, though it opens the rest of the season for big changes. Brenda as chief? That would be pretty awesome, but the other characters would be obsolete and she'd be doing administrative stuff.

Score: 8.7/10
