Given that the last new episodes of “Major Crimes” aired in the summer, it’s been a long wait to get to see new episodes of the show — and there’s still a little ways to go. The next batch of episodes airs on Wednesday, February 22 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time, and that’s a good month and a half away.
Does a new promo help to ease the wait? We like to think so, especially one that ends with Rusty calling his mom a “badass.” It’s an intense little tease at the show, and while there are no specific plot points given away, this serves as a nice microcosm for what we enjoy about this show: Intense, twisted stories that show off some of the best of what the LAPD has to offer.
Knowing “Major Crimes” as we do, we’d assume that many of the major characters are going to have some sort of spotlight before the season comes to a close; for Sharon Raydor in particular, we know that a possible promotion is on deck, though nothing is assured.
Before we get to many of these stories, though, there is a separate matter that needs to be attended to in Andy Flynn’s health. The character suffered at the end of the first half of the season an event that looked very much like a heart attack, and we’ve gotta make sure he is okay. The precise nature of this cliffhanger is probably one of the reasons why this hiatus feels particularly long … with the fact that the show hasn’t been renewed for a sixth season yet adding to the stress. Hopefully, we’ll get some news on that subject soon! For now, we’ll just have to enjoy the promo for what it is, and that’s vintage “Major Crimes.”
