With the sudden death of Chief Delk, Will Pope becomes Interim Chief while also keeping his old position as a cost-saving measure. The funeral is barely over when Major Crimes is called out on a case. Dead is Ashley Reed, a journalism student house-sitting for the family friends who find her on their return from a holiday. Obviously deceased for several days (five) by the time found, she had also babysat for Alex Banks, one of her professors who was known to have had an affair with another of his students. As Major Crimes picks apart the professor's life, a recovered laptop points them in the right direction. Meanwhile, as Commander Taylor bemoans his loss of advancement, Capt. Raydor, ready to end her investigation, continues only at Interim Chief Pope's insistence. Written by garykmcd / edited by statmanjeff
