Major Crimes gets a scare when two Russian exchange high schoolers die from poison-laced ecstasy, calling for hazmat suits till the possibly virulent toxin can be deemed relatively safe. Once deemed, attention turns to the high school, where narc officer Cooper identifies all the known student dealers for questioning. As the squad untangles that problem (which becomes more personal than it first seems), Taylor and Provenza present Rusty with two options for handling the anonymous letter threats - constant police supervision or exile to Oregon under the witness protection program. Rusty demands a third option, which avails Sharon to impose a concession. Written by statmanjeff
