A woman, taking part in a reality TV show featuring couples whose marriages are on the rocks, is killed during a stunt. The particular stunt featured couples driving cars equipped so that both could drive. Something went wrong, the husband jumped out, the wife remained and was killed. Seeing from the video that they were at each other's throat, Major Crimes tries talking to the husband, but his sister/publicist keeps them distanced before spiriting him away. He soon appears on TV with the video of his last conversation with his wife, showing him wishing she was dead. Subsequently arrested, he maintains he didn't kill her. The team looks at other participants who also had a beef with them, but still nothing. Discovering that the car they were driving had been hacked, they look into how and by whom. Elsewhere, Rusty meets with Slider's lawyer to get him to agree to an interview, but the lawyer has some requests of his own before agreeing. Written by by statmanjeff

Did You Know?


During the interview with the husband/murder suspect, he mentions that they wouldn't know what the word "spin-off" means. When Det. Sanchez say "everyone here knows what the word spin-off means," Lt. Provenza has that look on his face because Major Crimes (2012) is a spin-off of The Closer (2005). See more »
