SPOILER ALERT FOR THE DEC. 19 EPISODES OF MAJOR CRIMES
So how are you feeling about the final season of “Major Crimes” and the ending of Sharon Raydor’s story?
I feel that it was done beautifully and respectfully, and I think that it will be quite gratifying. I honestly feel like what James has done has been done with the fans in mind, and with the idea of wanting to go through something with them, as opposed to putting them through something that wouldn’t satisfy them at the end. I think that what James felt very strongly when he envisioned how this would go is — he wanted fans to be able to feel and grieve the end of this beautiful franchise together, collectively. I think he succeeded, and I feel very proud of it.
Sharon did go out on the job — dying at work. Does it feel like she went out in the line of duty to you?
Oh, absolutely. We don’t always know, any of us really, when and how this will go. She was very clear that she was on to something [in the case she was working on] and she had to address it and addressed it before she left. She prayed, she turned over [the health situation to God], and she finished [her case]. She did go out in the line of duty, but she didn’t go out with a gun in her hand, pointed at someone’s face.
