Major Crimes gets a call after police find a serial killer's burial ground in Griffith Park containing the bodies of at least five young women. Though the most recent killing occurred the previous evening, the grave had been dug at least two days prior. The masked killer's latest burial was interrupted and pointed out by an underage street hustler and his adult john, who went off to a quiet corner to be alone. The most recent victim made a purchase at a department store where CCTV footage shows she met a man - someone who knew well enough to keep his back to the cameras - who Brenda is convinced is lawyer and serial rapist Philip Stroh. Getting Chief Pope and others to believe her, however, is more difficult, but Brenda isn't going to let Stroh get away this time and is willing to sacrifice her future with the LAPD to get him, even if it means using the nearly-killed underage hustler as jail bait.

They're dead! Don't you get it? They are dead! You can't help them anymore! Or is it just that you don't want to bother with ME? Is that is? You just want to use me like everybody else?
Brenda Leigh Johnson
Don't say that. That's not true.
Isn't it? I mean, you haven't even asked one real question about my life, not even a, you know, "Gosh, Rusty, what a crappy situation you've got having to spend your sixteenth birthday working as a street treat."
