Major Crimes is on the case when a woman is shot dead in the passenger seat of her boyfriend's car. Some members of the team feel it's a suicide but Brenda quickly sets them straight and they have a murder investigation. The immediate suspect is the dead woman's boyfriend who lives nearby and had just had a shower when the police arrived. Both the dead woman and the boyfriend were meth addicts and the case seems to be wrapping up quickly until Brenda learns that the dead woman was involved in a custody dispute with her cancer-stricken ex-husband. Det. Sanchez meanwhile is trying to foster the young orphan he came into contact with the previous week, but it's having a negative effect on his duties. Brenda is also distracted and hasn't decided whether she will apply for the vacant Chief of Police position. Written by garykmcd
