Major Crimes - "Year-End Blowout" - Monday, Dec. 30, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)
A year-end blowout sale becomes literal for a used-car lot after one of its owners is killed when a bomb explodes. While the squad tries to find who is responsible, Rusty dons a bullet-proof vest under the watchful eye of Lt. Chuck Cooper (guest star Malcolm-Jamal Warner), a Special Investigation Section (SIS) supervisor, in an attempt to catch the person responsible for threatening his and Sharon's life.
