In the fourth season premiere, Griffith Park is a blazing inferno, threatening sections of Los Angeles, Glendale, Burbank and San Mateo. With four people dead and firefighters desperately trying to keep the flames at bay, the Priority Homicide Division is called in to begin an investigation. Things turn ugly when an old nemesis of Brenda's -- pyromaniac Bill Croelick (guest star Jason O'Mara "Life on Mars," "Grey's Anatomy," "Men in Trees") -- enters the scene. To make matters worse, a reporter has been attached to the squad as part of a PR campaign for the LAPD. On the home front, Fritz and Brenda have moved into a duplex, but the owner doesn't allow pets. This doesn't stop Brenda, however, from doing everything she can to keep Kitty under wraps, even if it means fighting with Fritz over the situation. watch

Many Thanks

Many, many thanks to Matt and those of you who have posted such positive feedback about The Closer, our most recent episode and our new season. You can't imagine how encouraging it is to have so much good credit from those who follow the show. On behalf of Mike Berchem, Steven Kane and our resident genius, Michael Robin, who directed "Ruby" and brought it to vivid life, and an amazing cast led by Kyra Sedgwick, I send you back our most sincere thanks. On a personal note, I have been home sick for the last five days recovering from a ridiculously serious cold, so all of your messages mean even more to me than usual. So, so kind of everyone to take time from their busy lives to post their thoughts. I'm being rather sternly ordered back to bed as I type this, but expect to hear from me again this weekend on the subject of criminal interviews and just why The Closer feels a little retro to some journalists. 'Til then, again, our thanks. — James Duff read more
