There was a darkness to Major Crimes Season 3 Episode 1 that we don't see very often.
Let's hope that it's not a sign of things to come because there was nothing pleasant about viewing this installment. The acting was fantastic and all the characters were on their A game, but the topic was so brutal it was difficult to watch.
A mother is the prime suspect when she returns from a business trip to find her husband and two children missing. That's as normal as the case gets since what follows is heart wrenching.
