Major Crimes, responding to a shooting at a university, finds a professor of filmmaking shot as he watched a video on his computer of a woman Realtor being shot. Looking for a link between the Realtor and the professor, they find nothing till her husband mentions that before becoming a Realtor she was a literary agent. Since the video features the killer asking the woman "Don't you remember me?" (shooting her when she doesn't), they surmise that the killer is one of her former clients, one who feels that she, the professor, and maybe others, had let him down and belong in ruthless revenge film. After Slider's sentence is passed, Rusty tries to approach Gus. Written by by statmanjeff
