Major Crimes Season 5 Episode 16 Review: Quid Pro Quo

Judge Grove is back!

I've missed his sardonic comments, insistence on proper procedure, and surprising flashes of empathy.

He returned as part of a smartly executed, high-concept story on Major Crimes Season 5 Episode 16, and I couldn't be more thrilled.

Between an unusual format, an interesting story and Judge Grove's trademark sarcasm, "Quid Pro Quo" had a lot to offer.

But before getting to all that, there's a burning question I have to ask: What was Amy thinking, getting involved with Mark Hickman again?

Mark Hickman first appeared on Major Crimes Season 4 Episode 19. He was obnoxious, untrustworthy, and caused Amy a boatload of trouble because she kept sneaking off to meet him despite orders from Sharon to stay away from him.

So why, exactly, did she think this time would be any different?

Hobbs: It doesn't matter that you were cleared, Amy. No matter what he instructs the jury, they won't forget.

Lisa Marie Presley Ordered to Pay Ex Michael Lockwood $50K

Lisa Marie Presley and her estranged husband, Michael Lockwood, both showed up in court on Wednesday in Los Angeles, California.

The hearing was over whether Presley -- who was dressed in a loose-fitting black pantsuit and white blouse that she paired with dark lipstick -- should have to pay Lockwood's attorney fees and other costs related to the court case. While the two do have a post-nuptial agreement from 2007, the judge ultimately ruled that Presley pay her ex $50,000 in increments of $10,000 monthly for reasonable fees and court costs, which includes some attorney fees, until a trial date is set in order to determine the validity of the post-nup.

Major Crimes Season 5 Episode 9 Review: Family Law

It's always the wife. Or at least, that's what Lieutenant Provenza would have us believe.

Except this time it wasn't.

Major Crimes Season 5 Episode 9 offered a case that was both quirky and sad, a rough start to Julio's attempt to be a foster parent, and Sharon needing to rein in Rusty's impulsivity.

It was as sad as it was quirky and made for an enjoyable hour of television.

The investigation of the hour was worthy of Law and Order: Svu, complete with a college student who was earning money on the side as a prostitute.

The girl and her boyfriend seemed to have a philosophical disagreement with the idea that prostitution is wrong.

What a stupid question. No, he wasn't jealous. Why would he be? And I wasn't in a relationship with Bobby. It was transactional. Safe sex.

Bree Permalink: What a stupid question. No, he wasn't jealous. Why would he be?
