‘Major Crimes’ season 4, episode 21 review: When a confession is not a confession

Major Crimes -For anyone and everyone out there who loves TNT’s “Major Crimes,” isn’t the “Hindsight” storyline progressing rather nicely? We’re three episodes in, and we are at least starting to get to know some of the central characters more. With that, it’s becoming increasingly complicated to fully pinpoint any one of them as the responsible part in the killing.

With that, let’s talk one of the big twists for the episode on Monday night: Hickman’s latest move to coerce a confession out of Price. Would it be genuine? It’s hard to believe so when you are staring into the face of the gun. Can you really buy into what he’s selling? It is hard to, but what we do at least know at the moment is that we’re having an incredibly tough time taking anything that Hickman does as something that an innocent man would do. We understand that he lost his job and in some ways his pride so many years ago, but these sort of actions do make you wonder whether or not he really is behind it all.

For now, we at least know he’s in more trouble than ever … and so could Sykes if some of her actions come back to bite her. For now, we do at least enjoy what they are doing structurally, and it’s smart that we’re not getting too many characters shoved down our throat.

Elsewhere in this episode, the story with Rusty and his biological father is … okay. There’s just not the same sort of power here that we saw with everything with Slider in the fall. It’s surprising in a way, given that this is a family connection, but through much of it we just wanted to get back to the other case. We’re probably more invested in this one than almost any other we’ve seen on the show in some time. Grade: B.
