As you can see in the exclusive clip below, McGinnis has a personal stake in the case..
The expectation of safety has — alas - exploded in our modern world. Worse, the very idea of safety has become so politicized that it's nearly impossible to discuss (from any perspective) without simultaneously inviting partisan criticism. Walking through this political minefield just to tell a story is nearly not worth it
Those who watch Major Crimes regularly know that we try to vary the tone from episode to episode. Some stories are dark and moody; some are light and, occasionally, funny; some are designed to be action-packed thrillers; some are built as studies of human nature. And, usually, we end our seasonal run with a touch of horror. Last year's spree killing "Poster Boy," and the previous season's cool-headed sniper, led us into the more depraved reaches our genre.
Here we go again...

bsp;Ask police detectives about homicide's "blue chips," and right up there with divorce, greed and psychopathy, they will mention "getting even" as one of their highest performers. In fact, if you factor in gang violence, mob hits and war zones, retaliation isn't only a celebrated motive for murder, but also the prime mover behind the deaths of millions of men, women and children around the globe.
Add to this cheery observation that civilization doesn't seem to be getting any easier to maintain, and that the expectation of privacy has pretty much ceased to exist, and you have the toxic recipe for tonight's victim, a purveyor of a particular form of on-line harassment known colloquially as "revenge porn."

We are born with an expectation of family; there is no other way for a baby to survive. Humans are so frail and weak during infancy that, without adult protectors and providers, they would be dead within a day. But relatives are not only present to feed and defend, they are also shapers of character, first teachers in the subjects of life, last words on rights and wrongs: they are the personification of fate; they are a form of destiny that we must either embrace or escape (and sometimes both).
But what about those for whom family is not a given? Children left behind, as it were, or set aside, or forced by circumstances from their original cribs? For example, I was adopted...

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: Will Rusty put his secrets behind him?
Realizing how Lina's secret had destroyed multiple lives, Rusty (Graham Patrick Martin) finally decided to get past his own fears and tell the members of the squad his truth...

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...
