Major Crimes: Season 5
Major Crimes centers on an elite squad of detectives in the Los Angeles Police Department who are responsible for investigating high-profile or sensitive crimes.
Los Angeles Police Captain Sharon Raydor (series star Mary McDonnell) heads up this special unit, Major Crimes, and her team of investigators includes Lieutenant Provenza (series star G.W. Bailey), the squad's resident old-timer; Lieutenant Andy Flynn (series star Tony Denison), who is passionate about his job and, more recently, about Captain Raydor as well; Lieutenant Mike Tao (series star Micahel Paul Chan), the go-to guy for anything technology related, who thrives on using his expertise to crack cases; Detective Julio Sanchez (series star Raymond Cruz), who is knowledgeable about the complexities of gang warfare in Los Angeles and can be a bit intimidating to a suspect; Detective Amy Sykes (series star Kearran Giovanni), a former undercover police detective and military veteran; medical examiner Dr. Morales (series star Jonathan Del Arco), whose dry sense of humor helps alleviate the mood of the autopsy room; tech expert and reserve police officer Buzz Watson (series star Phillip P. Keene); and Assistant Chief Russell Taylor (series star Robert Gossett). Rusty Beck (series star Grahan Patrick Martin) is a formerly homeless teen who has been adopted by Raydor. Torn between what is right morally and what the law commands, Raydor and her team are faced with personal and professional struggles as they continue to make deals and crack cases.
