Who's says telly can't be strong

So The Closer is back. And what a way to return.

Faced with budget cuts and the need to reduce her crew Brenda Lee faces a gruesome crime of family carnage and the one suspect, at least as far as the ever cheery Flynn is concerned, is off balance and full of drugs.

So another trip with Brenda and co as they sort through the chaff and finally solve the crime.

And what an ending. Generally the possible suspect does dance from one character to the next but never as explosively as in this episode. The fact that it is a hate crime, and involves the death of a 12 year old girl making the final pay off even more poignant.

Great episode.
