Graham Patrick Martin

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from Monday's episode of TNT's Major Crimes. Read at your own risk.] 

As Major Crimes' Rusty Beck learned on Monday's episode, keeping secrets can actually just lead to more pain.

The episode, which was told mostly from Rusty's point of view during a therapy session with Dr. Joe (Bill Brochtrup), featured a murder that implicated a foreign diplomat whose daughter, Lina (Rima Rajan), was set to wed the victim in an arranged marriage. Although the diplomat used his immunity to escape questioning and potential punishment, the real killer turned out to be Lina's American boyfriend, whom she had kept hidden from her parents.

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews "Do Not Disturb"

Graham Patrick Martin

Mystery stories trade in puzzles and surprise. How did the body get into the library? How was it all the windows and doors were locked from the inside? Why is the victim wearing someone else's cologne? These are the riddles over which Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot expend their energies as private detectives and likable busybodies in British detective fiction. But, in Major Crimes, as elsewhere in the procedural world, sometimes the most difficult conundrum facing our division is the law itself... read more

Major Crimes Star Lends His Voice to Raise Awareness About Immigration

Jonathan Del Arco and Jurnee Smollett-Bell

Major Crimes star Jonathan Del Arco spends a lot of time in the morgue to help the fictional detectives of the TNT drama series solve their problematic cases. But the actor is one of several Hollywood celebs lending their time and talents in an effort to solve an even bigger problem. 

Del Arco is an honorary board member of the non-profit organization Welcome.us, which celebrates the United States rich immigrant heritage as a way to raise awareness about the ongoing political debate surrounding immigration reform. As part of June's Immigration Heritage Month, Del Arco and other actors, including Glee's Naya Rivera, The Vampire Diaries' Paul Wesley and Jamie-Lynn Sigler have created a series of PSAs to spread Welcome.us' message.

"We're addressing immigration in a holistic way," Del Arco tells TVGuide.com. "We're taking it out of the political circle and really addressing the social aspect of it.... read more

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews "Personal Day"

Raymond Cruz and Mary McDonnell

The ability to communicate with others is something we mostly take for granted.  An expectation of understanding serves as the unconscious foundation of nearly every social, personal and professional transaction we undertake. True, the atonality of e-mail, or the micro nature of Twitter feeds and Facebook posts, can lead to some fairly interesting apologies.  And let's not forget how irritating autocorrect can be. But technological gremlins are not the only obstacles standing between us and perfect clarity. If our words sometimes fail to carry their proper meanings, maybe it's because we have said them too many times before, or changed them entirely from one day to the next. Our character, our reputations and our known opinions may provide our statements with unintentional context, so that we are not misunderstood at all but, rather, understood better than we realize.

Det. Julio Sanchez has always been in favor of short declarative sentences; his reactions usually tell us more about him than his verbal responses... read more

Major Crimes Season 3: Which Family Will Rusty Choose?

Graham Patrick Martin, Mary McDonnell

Major Crimes' third season will be a family affair.

Not only does the case in the premiere (Monday, 9/8c, TNT) involve two children who have gone missing with their father while everyone in Major Crimes points the finger at the mother, but it also sets up a season that explores what "family" truly means.

"The theme of our first 10 episodes this season is expectations," creator James Duff tells TVGuide.com. "We have an expectation of a lot of things in our lives that it turns out that we have no right to expect. Family is not a given. Family is something you are sometimes obligated to create for yourself and that you embark upon with other people."

Indeed, over the first two seasons, Capt. Sharon Raydor... read more

I'm sad that this is going to be the final season of True Blood. Do you have anything to make me feel better? — Carrie
Yes, but it may not make you feel better. When the HBO drama returns, the Hep-V-infected vampires that were poised to attack Bon Temps arrive and the bloodbath quickly ensues. Unfortunately, the casualties are not just redshirts. In fact, one character's fate is so jaw-dropping that you'll spend the rest of the episode wondering if what you just watched was a dream. It's not, which clearly means all bets are off in this final season.
