Review - The Closer Season 6 Episode 10 Executive Order

As expected, Brenda doesn't become Chief of Police, and will stay in the position she feels comfortable with. The writers set up "Executive Order" to give Brenda a tough choice in the end, not an arbitrary on her part to reject the position.

Major Crimes takes on a crazy firefighter killer who has tanks on sarin gas, and in the process of taking him down, Brenda shoots and kills him, bringing an investigation that wards off any hope the mayor would pick her. Her counterpart working on the case--also a frontrunner for the job--becomes Chief. I wonder what, if any, fallout there is as the season progresses. The new Chief seems like a nice, upstanding guy, but the winds could turn easily. And what about Brenda? Was the shot a deliberate attempt to release herself from the pending Chief of Police decision?

Score: 8.7/10
