Detective Brenda Leigh Johnson got to close the Phillip Stroh case as her final task for Major Crimes on "The Closer" (Mon., 9 p.m. ET on TNT). She was so desperate to nail him that she tried to pull together a case with very flimsy evidence. She knew he was guilty, and he knew she knew. And he loved to rub it in her face that she couldn't get enough evidence on him to bring him in.

It was after her latest failure to get a confession out of him, though, that he really touched a nerve. Stroh made a comment about her recently deceased mother, and Brenda attacked him in the elevator. That, however, gave her the DNA evidence she needed from him to try and force a confession.

Everything she was doing skirted or outright broke the law, leading to her ultimately getting removed from duty. Just in time, too, as she got a job offer at the D.A.'s office. It was an offer she would take, but not before Stroh confronted her in her own home, and she was able to shoot him through her purse.

Her team gave her a new one as a farewell present, filled with her favorite chocolate treats. And with that Brenda and "The Closer" have left the building, but the narrative continues in "Major Crimes," picking up the action almost immediately.
