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.

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews the Season 2 Finale

Mary McDonnell, Jon Tenney

Finally, we have come to the end of our second season. Major Crimes will not only finish up business it started last week, but also answer some questions it asked last November, last summer and last year. The manner in which identity and character combine to form human nature - our nineteen episode theme — will, of course, remain a mystery, but we have framed our inquiry as well as we could.

Part of that frame involves dramatizing how two boys from similar circumstances could have turned out so differently.  I won't give away our ending — I've never wanted to use this opportunity to present spoilers — but it won't take long to spot the numerous similarities between Rusty and his would-be murderer: both abandoned, both abused as teenagers, both affected by the addiction and drug problems of their respective mothers, and the comparisons do not end there.  They see themselves in each other, yet every resemblance is superficial.... read more

"I felt like it was time to put Rusty on the stand and that it was time to see what Sharon's tutelage had accomplished," creator James Dufftells TVGuide.com. "It was time to help get a little closure to the ongoing emotional arc we have been dealing with between Rusty and Sharon in the matter of Philip Stroh. It doesn't mean [Rusty's] out of the woods. It just means things are looking up for him."

Indeed, while Rusty has no more run-ins with his attempted killer, he will face off against Stroh's bulldog of an attorney .... read more
