The Closer (TNT)
Premieres: Monday, July 9 at 9/8c
Where We Left Off: Brenda's name was dropped from the lawsuit brought against the LAPD by the family of Turrell Baylor, but her name wasn't completely cleared: The department instated "The Johnson Rule" — that no suspect can be let out of police custody in a hostile environment — which basically still implies Brenda's responsibility for Baylor's murder.
What's Next: Raydor and Pope will continue searching for the leak in the department. But with Brenda increasingly feeling she has no one to trust in the department, expect her to find it harder than ever to keep her job. And her trouble with lawyers are far from over: The series culminates with the return of Phillip Stroh (guest star Billy Burke), the slimy attorney who Brenda has always suspected as a serial rapist. Will she finally be able to prove it in time to (possibly) go out on top?

Another key figure in Annie's life: suspected KGB spy Simon (Richard Coyle), who will appear throughout the season. Jai will continue to go after Joan, but her job is only "what he thinks he wants," Ord says.
