With Brenda and Fritz's wedding just one week away, Frtiz's sister, Claire Howard, comes to stay with them. She's a bundle of energy and a bit ditsy, informing Brenda she is a psychic (or, as she prefers to call herself, an "intuitionist"). With Fritz busy on a major drug case, Brenda offers to take Claire in to work to keep her occupied. The Major Crimes squad has recently come into possession of a pay-as-you-go cellphone with increasingly threatening text messages. They have no idea who the individuals might be but can determine, from the messages, that one party got the other to kill her husband; however, once the deed was done, messages stopped being returned to the other. Claire thinks she can help them by telling what she "sees," but while a skeptical Provenza thinks it's all nonsense, Mike Tao isn't so sure. With all this happening, and despite his disdain for psychics, Provenza gives his own reading on the future for Chief Johnson.

Did You Know?
You see Brenda looking at a file on Phillip Stroh on her computer. This is a reference to the previous episode The Closer: Power of Attorney
(2009) in which Brenda was unable to charge Phillip Stroh. See more
Why is your whole squad here on a Saturday?
Brenda Leigh Johnson
Because killers work weekends, too, Will.
