major crimes unit

So here are my convoluted thoughts on this two parter....

So. I still totally don’t think the bomber is after is old ex-wife.

On the rewatch….it starts with him planting a bomb in the guitar and then robbing that store. I believe as a ploy to get major crimes to respond. Clearly they didn’t.

Perhaps he planted more bombs and more crimes that we haven’t seen yet…

He stages the murder to get major crimes unit to finally respond. he plants the bomb into an item that would be booked into evidence, however the radios caused a premature detonation.

Then the bike…

The bike does get booked into evidence.

So now we’re too the grave site. If his ex wife was the target…there would be no reasonable reason for him to photograph the members of the unit respond to the scene. Why would he document, with visual proof, who responded to the scene? hmmm.

Then we have the storage unit. Several pictures and locations of mundane items presumably to be used as bombs. I believe these are other attempts to get a bomb into evidence.

We also have the reappearance of Stroh. (super angry face, duff i swear to god…) And the implication that he is going through his past (if it really is stroh) to remove his ties. get rid of anyone connected to him.

My thoughts, based on what we have so far:

I believe (yes I’m going back to the stroh theory) stroh is using this guy’s grudge against his ex wife as a way to get to major crimes and his evidence from the closer days. 

Blowing up the team, and then getting a bomb into evidence to blow up his remaining evidence…. effectively ending any easy prosecution of stroh.

And we know from Stroh’s MO that he always has a second person do the dirty. 

so. that is my prediction of the season end.

Fic Recs #3

I thought I had already done three of these, guys! I guess I was wrong… If I am wrong, please let me know.

Part 1, Part 2

In Your Eyes by @yellowflicker09011996 and @honorthedeadbyfighting - GUYS. This fic is amazing! Felicity is blind, but aside from that and a friendship with Tommy, it seems like the universe is the same to the Arrowverse. I’m loving this story so far and can’t wait to see where it goes!

And Above, The Vaulted Sky by @yellowflicker09011996 - I seriously can’t get enough of this fic! It’s so amazing. The writing is great, the story is so compelling, and I’m impatient for every single update! Felicity is the Spider - an integral part of the League of Assassins - but she escapes and teams up with Oliver to defeat her enemies and attain permanent freedom. Certain people - *cough* Amanda Waller - want her as an asset.

Only Lovers Left Alive by @yellowflicker09011996 - Can you guys tell I’m obsessed with Annie? Because I really, really am right now! Also, I’ve recced this fic before but I DON’T CARE. It’s seriously amazing! If you know the movie, you can guess what the plot is, but let me tell you, you really can’t comprehend the breadth of beauty and emotion and sorrow that Annie is capturing in this story. I’m consistently brought to tears - which is a good thing for me. READ IT NOW.

Chase the Light by @ohemgeeitscoley - THIS IS FLOMMY. It’s literally the ONLY Flommy fic I’m reading. Basically, Felicity finds out her long-time boyfriend is married right before she was going to take him home for Hanukkah. Tommy steps up to go with her as her fake boyfriend. The problem is, they’re both totally in love with each other and the other has no idea.

Our love will never fade away (I’ll bear your mark on my skin for eternity) by @charlie-leau - (Anyone have her Tumblr?) I’m usually not into soulmate AUs. At least, not multi-chapter ones. But, this one is so amazing! Soulmates have matching marks that bond them. When Felicity is 16, a private investigator finds her and tells her that her soulmate’s family has deemed her unsuitable for their son and they want her to take the Med - something that will make her Mark disappear and muffle the bond if she takes it every day. The man also says her soulmate wants what’s best for his family. Four years later, Felicity moves to Starling City and meets Oliver Queen at a coffee shop.

Jerry the EA by @dettiot - Obviously, Mel is amazing. She has Love is Red, Little Flowers of Eloquence, the Core Curriculum series… All FABULOUS. But, I have a special place in my heart for Jerry the EA who should totally get more screen time.

Ninja Warrior Hacker Goddess by @acheaptrickandacheesyoneline - I fell in love with this fic before I even knew Megan, and it made me so happy when I figured out she wrote it! In Ivy Town, our favorite couple watches American Ninja Warrior. It inspires Felicity to up her workout game. (Also, keep an eye on Megan! She’s writing an Indiana Jones AU and collaborating with @andcreation on a Smoaking Billionaires fic. GET READY, GUYS.)

The Way It Was Supposed to Be by @hannasus - Guys, I generally don’t like amnesia fics. I don’t really know why. But I LOVE THIS ONE. Felicity is kidnapped the night before her wedding to Oliver and the team is going crazy trying to find her. When they do, she’s not the Felicity Smoak they all know and love. I was so hesitant about this because amnesia, but it’s one of my favorite fics at the moment! Read it!

She Refused to be a Swooner by @suchaprettypoison - (Anyone have her Tumblr?) Felicity and Oliver meet in the public restroom at a baseball game. She’s snarky. He’s intrigued. In this ‘verse, Felicity’s father didn’t leave and had much more influence on her life. SO funny and sweet and romantic.

Going Mental by @thatmasquedgirl​ - It’s an Arrow Mentalist AU! I’ve never watched the Mentalist (I know enough general info to get by), and it hasn’t hindered my enjoyment of this fic at all. Felicity is sassy and snarky but wounded, Oliver can’t really explain why he likes her so much. The synopsis is wonderful: “One of these days, she might actually be the death of him, but what a way to go. Snapshots in the lives of Oliver Queen, head of the Major Crimes Unit of the California Bureau of Investigation, and his partner Felicity Smoak, his best friend and the bane of his existence.”

Give Him Your Heart (he will give you his) by @alexiablackbriar13​ - PUPPY!OLIVER. Oliver gets whammied by a meta and turned into the animal that best reflects his soul: a Husky puppy. It is equally fluffy and adorable and heartbreaking and sad because Oliver has a lot of Bad Feelings and puppies aren’t really equipped to deal with them.

Blind Item by @darlinginmyway​ - Oliver and Felicity are best friends. Once day, he realizes how horrible of a friend he is and that he’s madly in love with Felicity Smoak. Now he just has to change his ways and earn her love, all while opening a restaurant with Tommy and Digg. (Slade is a chef! I love Slade.) This fic is funny, sweet, sassy, and absolutely worth reading!

Truthfully Lying by @witchwithwifi​ - (is this the right blog?) Felicity gets into Starling City Boarding School on a full scholarship. She just wants to learn and keep her head down. Oliver Queen and Tommy Merlyn have other plans. I’m a SUCKER for a good boarding school AU and there just aren’t a lot of them in this fandom!

Okay, that’s all for now! HAPPY READING, EVERYONE! If anyone wants to recommend me some awesome fanfiction, please feel free. I’m always ready to read more fic.

TNT’s Hit Series Major Crimes to Tackle Tough New Cases

                                        When Season 4 Launches in June

               Top 10 Basic Cable Drama Returns Monday, June 8, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)

Television’s favorite squad of detectives will be back on the case this summer when TNT’s hit drama Major Crimes returns for its fourth season. One of basic cable’s Top 10 series, Oscar® and Emmy® nominee Mary McDonnell heads the extraordinary ensemble cast that includes G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni, Graham Patrick Martin and Jonathan Del Arco, along with Robert Gossett. Major Crimes is set to launch its fourth season on Monday, June 8, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). It will be followed by the return of TNT’s hit crime-drama Murder in the First.

In 2014, Major Crimes ranked as one of basic cable’s Top 10 series for the third consecutive year. The series averaged more than 8.2 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery in its third season, with 2.5 million adults 18-49 and 1.9 million adults 25-54, all on par with the prior season’s performance. Overall, the show reached an average of 11.6 million viewers per episode across TNT’s linear, VOD, online and mobile platforms.

Major Crimes focuses on how the American justice system approaches the art of the deals as law enforcement officers and prosecutors work together to score a conviction. In the series, McDonnell stars as Los Angeles Police Captain Sharon Raydor, who heads up a special squad within the LAPD that deals with high-profile or particularly sensitive crimes. Her team of investigators includes G.W. Bailey as Lieutenant Provenza, Tony Denison as Lieutenant Andy Flynn, Michael Paul Chan as Lieutenant Mike Tao, Raymond Cruz as Detective Julio Sanchez, Kearran Giovanni as Detective Amy Sykes and Phillip P. Keene as tech expert Buzz Watson. Robert Gossett plays Assistant Chief Russell Taylor, Raydor’s boss, while Jonathan Del Arco plays Dr. Morales, the medical examiner. Graham Patrick Martin plays Rusty Beck, a formerly homeless teen who has been adopted by Raydor.

In addition to the main cast, Major Crimes features recurring appearances by Jon Tenney as Deputy Chief of the Special Operations Bureau Fritz Howard, Ransford Doherty as Coroner’s Investigator Kendall, Kathe Mazur as DDA Andrea Hobbs, Malcolm-Jamal Warner as Lt. Chuck Cooper and Bill Brochtrup as Rusty’s therapist, Dr. Joe Bowman. Also set to return this season is guest star Tom Berenger as Jack Raydor, Capt. Raydor’s estranged husband.

This season on Major Crimes, the division will be called upon to investigate a complicated string of home burglaries, a case involving a dead body left in the trunk of a car that is wrecked during a high-speed chase and a gangland shooting case involving an 11-year-old witness. During his first drive-along as a Reserve Officer, Buzz Watson will be dragged into the latest Flynn and Provenza investigative debacle after a dead body in a bathtub threatens an extremely expensive wedding. And Sanchez will return to the Major Crimes unit, but struggle to rebuild relationships and trust with his fellow officers. Back at home, Sharon Raydor’s newly adopted son, Rusty, will discover a passion for journalism that tests his mother’s patience, and could threaten the prosecution of a confessed murderer.

Created by James Duff, Major Crimes is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company and Walking Entropy, Inc., in association with Warner Bros. Television. Duff, Greer Shephard & Michael M. Robin, Rick Wallace, Adam Belanoff and Leo Geter serve as executive producers.
