Ma­jor Crimes

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 19 JULY -

Sea­son 5 M-Net Edge (*102) 19:00

Cap­tain Sharon Ray­dor (Mary McDon­nell) and her squad of LA cops are back tonight with a brand-new sea­son of Ma­jor Crimes (2012-cur­rent). And just like with pre­vi­ous sea­sons, there’s a big, on­go­ing mys­tery to in­ves­ti­gate. “We’re go­ing to look at the mur­der of sur­veil­lance co-or­di­na­tor Buzz Wat­son’s (Phillip P Keene) fa­ther and un­cle that was never solved and that is go­ing to run through the en­tire sea­son,” says the show’s ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer James Duff. Here are more sea­son 5 high­lights…

Mov­ing in to­gether Sharon, who’s been dat­ing De­tec­tive Andy Flynn (Tony Deni­son) since sea­son 3 (2014), con­tem­plates mov­ing in with him in episode 4 (9 Au­gust). “The house that they’re ea­ger to pur­chase is go­ing to end up be­com­ing a crime scene when they find the list­ing re­al­tor’s body float­ing in the pool,” says James. Talk about bad luck! Boy trou­ble Sharon’s adop­tive son Rusty (Gra­ham Pa­trick Martin) has a fresh new look as he’s grow­ing up and is no longer a teenager. But Rusty’s hav­ing prob­lems in his love life, specif­i­cally when he and boyfriend Gus (Rene Rosado) fight over go­ing away for the week­end in the first episode. In a sur­prise twist, Rusty’s bi­o­log­i­cal mom Sharon Beck (Ever Car­ra­dine), who aban­doned him in sea­son 3 (2014), shows up in episode 2 (26 July) with dis­tress­ing news. Fos­ter par­ent­ing De­tec­tive Sanchez (Ray­mond Cruz) wants to make a dif­fer­ence in a kid’s life this sea­son by be­com­ing a fos­ter par­ent after he works on a case in episode 1 where a fos­ter child was the mur­derer. It could be a life-al­ter­ing mo­ment for the tough cop.
