Review - The Closer Season 6 Episode 6 Off the Hook

I've never liked Pope, but with the Chief position opening up this season, he's been more of a prick than usual. In "Off the Hook," he goes out of control, refusing to listen to anyone and berating those not a fault just because he's mad. Brenda calmly tries to investigate as she usually does, but Pope hijacks the entire proceeding and makes many unreasonable demands. Of course, these actions are to cover his back and make him look better to the public, thus increasing his chances to get the position.

The case is fairly basic with the murder of the parole board commissioner due to a woman angry at her husband killed by a parolee. It was hard to enjoy the episode when Pope was always being irrationally mean. Even in the end, he remains pissy towards Brenda.

Score: 8.4/10
