First off, I'm Leverage Guru, the admin on the wiki. This wiki is a work in progress that's ready for lots of development. I've started a new forum to discuss editors’ ideas for improvement of the wiki -- let's hear what you think!

Now that the framework for the wiki is largely in place, I've set a few personal agendas for my own editing, and am hoping a few dedicated editors will contribute their expertise and ideas:
  • Expansion of the episode articles.
  • Development of cast and character articles.
  • Development of a fan area that can house fan media, artwork and fiction.

I'm a great believer in collaboration toward a shared vision. Please join the discussion, drop me a note on my talk page, and share your great ideas! It's a great opportunity to build this wiki into an active, high visibility site.

3/29/16 - Major Crimes – Season 5 Premiere Monday, June 13, at 10/9c

Major Crimes returns with more mysteries in its fifth season as the squad sets out to solve some of the worst and most challenging homicides in America’s second largest city. Whether it involves hunting for a missing teenage girl who vanished while helping the homeless, hunting down the killer of a potentially dirty cop, following up on an ISIS-related beheading in an isolated corner of Los Angeles, or putting back together a body burnt to cinders in an Elysian Park grilling pit, the investigators strive to return balance to the scales of justice. This season, Sharon also strives to push her adopted son, Rusty, through college while figuring out where she wants to go in her ongoing romance with Andy Flynn; Julio Sanchez decides to try to adopt a child himself; Provenza develops some sensitivities related to his new marriage to Patrice; Buzz Watson picks up where the LAPD left off on their murder investigation of his father and uncle 30 years ago; Mike Tao wins an award for his work as a Hollywood consultant; and Amy Sykes confronts whether she wants to have children or stay focused on her career.
