Tonight in HD: June 19 UPDATED

Season Highlight: The Closer (TV One, 11.00, 5.1) The squad investigates the death of a 12-year-old boy whose father and brother are both gang members. The boy is found dead in a known gang party house, but soon the case includes two more bodies at a different house related to the same crime. Meanwhile, Fritz brings home a surprise for Brenda, and there’s trouble brewing in Provenza’s romantic paradise. This billing replaces the original post after TVNZ jumped the gun and sent media the wrong synopsis for tonight’s episode. The season finale proper now will screen on July 3. Josh Cooke, who played Vince Masuka’s intern in the last season of Dexter, guest stars. ✭✭✭✭

But TV Fanatic said she “brings a very sultry mix to the table. From having her hair up when it’s ‘go time’ and kicking ass, to having her hair down and looking alluring walking into the office, she actually reminds me a lot of Melinda Clarke (Amanda on Nikita) with her ability to be sexy in almost any setting.” ✭✭
