Warning: Spoilers Ahead

You had us at Philip Stroh. First introduced to us in The Closer, Billy Burke‘s Stroh quickly showed his true colors. But Brenda Leigh Johnson and her team couldn’t get enough on him to charge and convict him until the series finale. Brenda was able to get the DNA evidence she needed, although it came at the price of her job with the LAPD. She moved on to the D.A.’s office and thus marked the end of The Closer and the beginning of Major Crimes.

The Major Crimes team has a lot invested in keeping Stroh in jail. We’ll be watching closely to see if they can.
