Sources confirm to me exclusively that the ex-Battlestar Galactica prez will reprise her role as Captain Sharon Raydor, the by-the-book head of the Force Investigation Division whose occasional clashes with Brenda were a highlight of season 5, in a minimum of five episodes.

Per a Closer insider, Raydor will “create situations that come between Brenda and Pope.”

The Closer‘s sixth season is slated to premiere in July.
