A Christmas village Santa is killed in a zip-line accident, and the village's other Santa comes under suspicion. Meanwhile, Brenda's lawyer informs her that his retainer has run out and she needs to pay him $25,000.
After Santa "Randy" is killed in a freak accident during a children's event at the North Pole, the team has to investigate Santa "Jack" (Fred Willard) to see if he was involved, turning this accident into a murder. But the team can't seem to keep Santa "Jack" far away enough from his Rum-filled Egg Nog to get a court admissible confession.Written by
I have to say I love "The Closer". And even though Fred Willard is the guest star, I had no idea this episode was going to be as awful as it was. Starting with the fact that they include Buzz's sister into the plot for NO reason. They tend to keep people in the office (because how else could they use them for the storyline?) but usually we're talking about relevant people or people with some important connection - either to Pope or to Brenda, not to Buzz. Why the hell should the Watsons be in charge of taking care of Santa? The whole happiness thing was garbage - it forced the producers to use an awful score that made the whole episode look like a cheap sitcom. Even the use of the Title felt so awkward and I felt embarrassed for Kyra. It is the first time I have seen an episode whose ending I'm looking forward to. It was a terrible mess and it added nothing to the background story.
