Brenda may face major repercussions after a nasty article about LAPD's Priority Homicide squad appears in the press. Chief Pope has blown his stack and informs her that Priority Homicide is to be disbanded and the way in which homicides are investigated is to be completely reorganized by himself and Commander Taylor. Meanwhile the team is occupied with the investigation of a double murder when two men are found in the back of a stolen pick-up truck. The 911 call was made by a priest, Father Donahue, and the squad identifies the men as Mexican police officers from Tijuana. The killing has all of the markings of the Ochoa drug cartel and leads the police to suspect one Mateo Hernandez, apparently a security guard but in fact a former Mexican policeman who has been helping the FBI.

No more Priority Homicide?
9 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

In the penultimate episode of this season, we see Chief Pope announcing that Priority Homicide will be dismantled after a critical news report that says the department favors white victims. Brenda agonizes over the decision, but depend upon her to find a way to turn the decision to her advantage.

In the meantime, she is trying to find out who killed two Mexican cops and find a suspect that is being hidden in a church. Her intense efforts expose those in the pay of the Mexican drug cartel and she exercises a bit of justice that may rub some the wrong way.

There is only one episode left and we will have to suffer another drought without Brenda.
