The Closer – The Leak revealed

7 Aug

If you have been a faithful viewer of The Closer like I have, then the last few weeks have been difficult, last week Mama Johnson died, this week the leak was revealed and next week is the end. 

Brenda Leigh has been one of my all time favorite characters, Kyra Sedgewick was made for this role.

The reveal of the leak, was, as expected, it was Gabriel via his girlfriend, but that didn’t make it any easier to take. 

Gabriel was new to his role when Brenda Leigh came to Los Angeles, he was assigned to drive her around and quickly became her staunchest supporter. He helped her when budget cuts threatened the department, she protected him when he was wrongly accused of shooting an unarmed man.

Brenda didn’t accept his resignation, and we know Corey Reynolds, the actor who plays Gabriel is not continuing onto the spin off Major Crimes.  So how will the character be written out, will he die in the line of duty next week? Will he quit when Chief Johnson leaves?

Has the departure of a TV character bummed  you out? If so, which one?

The Closer is back November 28th.

27 Nov

The Closer begins its extended last season on TNT Monday November 28 at 9pm EST.

TNT will air 5 episodes this winter and wrap up the series next July. TNT will spin some of the cast into a new series call Major Crimes lead by Mary McDonnell. It is not certain who from the cast of the The Closer will be joining McDonnell.

The Closer was and remains TNT’s highest rated series ever, it debuted to over 7 million viewers in July 2005, it averages between 7 and 8 million viewers and remains the highest rated basic cable scripted drama of all time.  Emmy winner and executive producer Kyra Sedgwick, decided to end the series last December.  The show and its star are going out on top.
