Get Buzzed – Phillip Keene Fans

Screencaptures of episode 5×16 “Quid Pro Quo” are now available in the gallery. Take a look and enjoy!

It is time for another episode of Major Crimes. In anticipation of that, let us share with you James Duff’s thoughts on tonight’s episode “Quid Pro Quo”. We also tossed in TNT’s promo, because there can never be enough goodies to fill those last endless hours.

Finally, Leonard Roberts joins the cast as Commander Leo Mason, head of Criminal Intelligence Division (the LAPD’s miniature version of the CIA). Mason quickly emerges as yet another entrant in the Assistant Chief sweepstakes, and with Leonard’s mellifluous voice, suggests a deal that Captain Raydor may find hard to refuse.

James Duff’s Blog entry >

Enter the detectives of Major Crimes, whose task it is to uncover secret connections – the theme of “Cleared History” – and follow them to their logical conclusions. I don’t want to mislead you. Tonight’s episode may start with a lighter tone, but it ends in a very dark place. I ask forgiveness, in advance, for leaving a great deal of the collected evidence off-screen. Sometimes, it’s better to let our imaginations fill in the blanks.

Hey guys,

the screencaps for episode 5×14 “Heart Failure” are now in the gallery. Check them out!

James Duff once again shared his thoughts about the upcoming episode of Major Crimes in his Facebook Blog entry.

Major Crimes will begin its winter run by dramatizing connections from its past to its future. In the aptly named “Heart Failure,” we introduce our team of detectives embroiled in an event that police officers have encountered all over the country over the last four or five years. We meet Flynn, once again adjusting to the drudgeries of desk duty. Sykes and Sanchez find a blue, Burberry jacket, once an emblem of a bright future, hanging in a closet associated with a much darker past. Buzz gets a disturbing letter, which he’s not sure how to answer.

February 15 – James Duff’s Blog Post

While finding connections is a common tool in murder investigations, the word also honored what we consider to be the exceptional relationship we have with our audience. Also, we wanted to “connect” the possible conclusion of Major Crimes to what had come before.

February 20 – New York Post – Camryn Manheim pushes buttons as steely chief on ‘Major Crimes’

Camryn Manheim (“The Practice,” “Extant”) joins the cast in the recurring role of LAPD Deputy Chief of Operations Winnie Davis, a by-the-book cop who locks horns with Major Crimes Division Captain Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell). It’s a table-turner for Raydor, the former internal affairs head who was originally an antagonist to Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick) on “The Closer,” from which “Major Crimes” was spun off in 2012.

February 21 – Troy L. Foreman interviewed James Duff for The Pop Culture Principle

Pop Culture Principle – We see Buzz bring some closure to case of his father and uncle’s murder, but he’s somewhat struggling with the arrest of their killer. What questions do you feel are still unanswered and will he be able to get over the guilt of his arrest?
James Duff – I think he always pictured the guy that killed his father as a stock villain and that he would find this stock villain and he would obtain justice for his father. There are people who are left out of our calculations in the procedural world and we spend a lot of time talking about material witnesses. We don’t ever examine the survivor’s in the murderer’s life. So, this is an opportunity to look at how the murderer not only destroys the lives of others, but those closest to him as well and what remedy is there for that.

February 22 – Parade -Show Runner James Duff Shares 12 Things You Need to Know for Season 5B of Major Crimes

Buzz gets a letter from Bill Jones’ family, is he’s going to help the family in some way? I don’t think he’s going to let the guy out of jail, but is there something he’s going to do?

No, no, he can’t let the guy out of jail, but Buzz was hoping when he found his father’s killer that he would be a stock villain and the guy is not a stock villain. He had a family and he loved his family, and it was a family very much like Buzz’s own family. Buzz’s work ended up removing a father from this innocent family, the family itself was innocent, and I think he feels an obligation to try and make things better for the family.

February 22 – TV Line -Major Crimes Boss Previews Andy’s Fate and the Fight for Taylor’s Job

But… Sharon’s team gets the job done, no? Like clockwork, on a weekly basis? “They do, but there’s always this tension inside governmental agencies, between getting the job done and spending money,” Duff explains. “The justice system was not created to be a bargain, but there’s still a limited amount of dollars to spend.” Again, with a stat: “In California courts, 93 percent of homicide cases are settled out of court, because we just don’t have the money to try them all.”

February 22 – MCTV Exclusive with James Duff

MCTV:We were all thrilled and relieved by the recent renewal announcement for season 6, but it came pretty late in the game in terms of where you were in the production schedule of these episodes. Did the delay in renewal affect the storytelling and how you wrote this winter arc, not knowing if there would be another season after this?

JD: I was preparing to do the last eight episodes as if we were going to do no more, but we also planned it so the last episode could go a multitude of ways depending on what happened. The word came down [that the show was renewed] before we started shooting the last two episodes. So as things turned out, we were prepared for the renewal with an alternate script, and the renewal came, and so we had that script ready to shoot.
