So there we were, the bride and I, watching ''The Closer'' and talking here and there about what we thought had happened. Well, I was talking, anyway. I do that. Then, late in the show, as the pieces were falling together, TNT ran a promo that included a big scene from the episode we were watching. Which was also a scene that we had not actually watched in the episode yet. And which confirmed suspicions we had about one of the chararacters -- before we had had those suspicions confirmed in the actual watching of the show.
What a delight. So much for surprise. Forget letting an episode unfold at its own pace. I know, it's not the first time a network has diminished a show with an overly revealing promo. But it's never fun, is it?
