Theme and SynopsisEdit

The theme for this season is fairness. The first season will explore how fair life can, or cannot be, both professionally and personally. The season opens with Provenza believing he would be in charge of Major Crimes, only to be unceremoniously replaced by Captain Raydor, leaving him questioning the fairness of this turn in his career. At the same time, Raydor finds herself unfairly passed over for a promised promotion, forging a connection between the two.

Central to the theme is the fairness of the new plea bargaining model proposed by Assistant Chief Taylor.  Unlike Brenda, whose training makes her adept at getting confessions, Sharon Raydor is more pragmatic about how to send the bad guys to jail, and sees a plea bargain as a means to close the cell door behind them.
