What Mary McDonnell pulled off was extraordinary. She was hired as an adversary, she was hired as a foil to a beloved character–she was hired to be her nemesis. And then TNT said not only is there going to be a spin off, but now we have to make everybody like you. And Mary pulled off the impossible. She got in there, and she’s completely the lead and the protagonist and made everybody love her. She’s amazing. And she did it with dignity. She didn’t do it with anything else than just being Raydor. Because Raydor’s strengths are the things that drove Brenda crazy. And now Raydor’s strengths are the things that have garnered the respect of the squad on Major Crimes. She didn’t change anything about Raydor, she just pulled off the impossible. An amazing arc.
