Goof for episode "Speed Bump" IS a 'goof'
28 July 2008 | by GaivarSee all my reviews

The goof shown for the episode of "The Closer" entitled "Speed Bump" says Lt Provenza sent flowers to the paroled rapist/killer... Actually, it is Anthony John Denison's character, Lt Andy Flynn, who admits sending the flowers. Additionally, the line in the goof attributed to Kyra Sedgewick's character, Deputy Chief Brenda Lee Johnson, is correct as is... It would in fact be a DEFENSE attorney's job to suggest an alternate theory of the crime by bringing up the Lieutenant's harassment of the parolee, and implicating the detective as a potential suspect. The result of that would be to establish a basis for reasonable doubt.
