Brenda and Major Crimes investigate the murder of James Turner, known within the One-Ten-Crips as J-Rock and found executed in a car registered to the late Terrell Baylor along with lawyer Peter Goldman's business card in his pocket. Goldman, who represents the Baylor family in their wrongful death suit against Brenda and the LAPD, had visited Reggie Moses in San Quentin the previous day. Reggie, in turn, made a call after their meeting to Martin Evans, a former gang member who Brenda is certain ordered Baylor's death. Proving it could bring an end to Goldman's civil suit, but Brenda wants more than that. As the investigation starts, Sanchez privately but firmly warns Brenda that anything she says or does in the squad will be leaked to Goldman, and to trust no one.

Did You Know?


Will Pope: Okay, look, solving the murder is job one. Job two is making sure that Goldman doesn't wind up dead in the process, and I think you need to address the leak in your division openly; so, find the killer, but be aware of all the moving pieces on the board.
