“Major Crimes” Season 3 Episode 1 “Flight Risk” airs on Monday, June 9, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on TNT. WARNING: “Major Crimes” spoilers ahead! Read only if you want to learn more about Season 3 Episode 1 “Flight Risk.”
“Major Crimes” will pick up after the major events that has happened in “Major Crimes” Season 2 two-part finale: “Return to Sender: Part 1” (January 6, 2014) and “Return to Sender: Part 2” (January 13, 2014).
According to TV Guide’s Mega Buzz, “Flight Risk” will begin with another sensitive case of a missing father and his two kids. The plot will continue to thicken when the Major Crimes Division (MCD) ruled it out as a homicide case. The entire MCD will find out about some dark family secrets that should not be revealed in the first place.
MCD will start again to probe about the case of Rusty (Graham Patrick Martin) against serial killer Phillip Stroh (Bill Burke). In Season 2, Rusty attended a pretrial hearing where Stroh was a no-show.
TV Line reported that “Major Crimes” creator James Duff wanted to bring several major characters back in a possible “two-parter” episodes.
He is interested on the “comeback” of former Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick) and Phillip Stroh (Billy Burke) for Stroh’s long-running arc since “The Closer.” Burke previously had a lead role in the now-cancelled “Revolution,” while Sedgwick had her share of several film roles after “The Closer.”
In another TV Guide article, it was said that MCD head Captain Sharon Raydor (McDonnell) will continue to have a tainted relationship with Rusty. Duff shared to TV Guide that the first 10 episodes will have a theme about expectations and family.
They will be faced with several problems including the reappearance of Rusty’s mother, Sharon. Moreover, Raydor’s husband (Tom Berenger) and her son, Ricky, would have a say over the issue of Raydor officially adopting Rusty for good.
Will Stroh be acquitted for good? How about the current state of Rusty and Sharon’s relatioship? How about their new case? Can they bring back the family of three? What would be the criminal’s reason for their disappearance?
“Major Crimes” stars include Mary McDonnell, G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni, Graham Patrick Martin, Jonathan Del Arco and Nadine Velazquez.
Zap2it posted that they will be joined by other returning cast members including Jon Tenney, Tom Berenger, Bill Brochtrup, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Ransford Doherty, Kathe Mazur, Andrew Daly and Azita Ghanizada.
Moreover, MNG previously reported that TNT had been developing an “Inception”-like series for the hit TV franchise. The upcoming series will join “Major Crimes” as the existing spinoffs of the 2006 “The Closer.”
It was said that Jon Tenney would reprise his role as FBI Agent Fitz Howard. He is the husband of former MCD head Brenda Leigh Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick) and the division’s connection to the FBI.
