RIZZOLI & ISLES ''When the Gun Goes Bang, Bang, Bang'' Review Episode 10

The season finale of RIZZOLI & ISLES, titled When the Gun Goes Bang, Bang, Bang , does not disappointment which I feared was a possibility after last week. The plot was interesting; there was action and tension; and the episode ended with enough doubt to make us care about what will happen next season. Also I am glad that the entire main cast, including Bass the tortoise, made an appearance tonight. We are even given a brief introduction to Jane and Frankie’s brother Tommy, who we are told ran down a priest in a crosswalk while DUI for the third time. The big drama involves cop Danny Clarke who is killed while working undercover for homicide division on Korsak’s case. The case involves two dead truck drivers who were involved in drug trafficking. Danny was assigned to the case by Lt. Det. Sean Cavanaugh, who didn’t tell anyone about it and is acting suspiciously. But it turns out he is just bearing the weight of responsibility for letting Danny go undercover alone. Jane questions Danny’s former long-time partner Bobby (Erik Palladino), who says Danny was a dirty cop. A drug addict witness turns up to say she can identify Danny’s shooter if she gets out of doing time. The gang who killed Danny arrives at Boston homicide headquarters, shooting everyone in sight and looking for evidence. The witness is killed. Jane finds that Frankie has been injured. In the autopsy room, Maura determines that he is critically injured. To Read More Click Here . If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

RIZZOLI & ISLES ''The Beast in Me'' Review Episode 9

I am glad that RIZZOLI & ISLES did not use this episode The Beast in Me as its season finale. An identity thief is strangled and stabbed with an ice pick to the brain. But when all ideas to identify the victim come up empty, Korsak in his infinite wisdom surmises that the victim has connections to a former infamous Irish mob boss called Patrick Doyle (John Doman). He’s right; the victim is Patrick’s son Colin Doyle (Michael Antosy). Colin has the same DNA profile as Maura, making them siblings. There is a pad with drawings of the same building, which is useful in finding out where Colin has been living and working . At this building, Jane and Frost find Drew Beckett (Chris Coy). He and Colin created an encryption scanner for thieving and decoding. With a 250,000 deposit in his account, Drew clearly sold out Colin’s location to the someone who murdered Colin. Whoever killed Colin knew it would draw out Patrick. To Read More Click Here . If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

RIZZOLI & ISLES ''Iâ??m Your Boogie Man'' Review Episode 8

In the episode “I’m Your Boogie Man”, we are reintroduced to characters from the premiere of RIZZOLI & ISLES. A dead man is found sitting on a park bench; he was involved in a domestic violence case two years ago, when his wife disappeared. The murder has all the indications (severed carotid artery) that it was Charles Hoyt’s (Michael Massee) work. Jane begins to have nightmares about Hoyt. A flare is left outside her building; no DNA or fingerprints found. Someone is taking photos of her; they end up with Hoyt who is locked up in prison. FBI Special Agent Gabriel Dean (Billy Burke) shows up to make sure that Jane is all right. Maura and Dean question Hoyt about the whereabouts of Emily Stern’s body. Hoyt says that he will keep Jane alive, so that he can have her all to himself. He unnerves Maura when he says that she’s not scared because she is like him. A discovery of mold leads the team to a DVD from Hoyt, containing images of a living Emily Stern. From this, they determine her location, only to find a tape recorder playing her plea of help over and over. To Read More Click Here . If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

RIZZOLI & ISLES ''Born to Run'' Review Episode 7

RIZZOLI & ISLES seems to have hit its stride with the episode 10 Born to Run . Jane and Maura participate in the Boston Marathon with Jane’s parents in the crowd waiting to cheer her on at the finish line. Soon after starting, they run into a dead body but cover up the death, in order to prevent widespread panic and stampede. The only other people who know about the shooting are Lt. Det. Sean Cavanaugh (Brian Goodman), Boston Marathon organizer Ron Garvey (Balthazar Getty), a volunteer named Quinn (Sam Lerner), and of course Korsak and Frost. Maura is forced by Jane to use a medical tent as a makeshift lab, along with whatever materials are at hand. To Read More Click Here . If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Rizzoli & Isles: Episode 6, "I Kissed A Girl"

This episode had to be one of my favorites! The beginning was really interesting and throughout the episode it had a great mix of intense and comedic moments. This show keeps getting better and better. I also like how it's Boston (Irish?) themed and how Rizzoli's mom & dad has that Boston accent. This show is unique and I don't think I've seen a show that actually has the main characters as two females (one a detective & the other a doctor). Overall, I'm hoping that this show won't get boring and die off like many others that tried to debut during this summer. [ 'Like' this post if you agree or comment ]

RIZZOLI & ISLES Episode 6 ''I Kissed a Girl'' Review

In this RIZZOLI & ISLES episode, entitled I Kissed a Girl , we have a diabetic, lesbian lawyer named Katie, who is found dead. Initially thought to be a hate crime, it turns out to be a murder with a personal motive. First, the team thinks that the killer is a man, namely the bouncer at the lesbian bar where Katie is last seen, because he uses a false name and has a history of trouble. Second, they think that Katie is cheating on her wife, because the bartender said she was seen with other women. Maura determines that Katie was not raped and her injuries from the beating occurred postmortem. From the blood on the murder weapon (a wood plank), Maura then discovers that the killer is a woman. A life insurance policy is found under Katie's name, providing the motive. Jane goes undercover with Maura to get DNA samples from women at the bar, in order to match the blood on the weapon. No matches. Now the spotlight is on the wife who has an airtight alibi, but it's found that Katie's insulin pump has no fingerprints on it. So the wife has an accomplice. It's the bartender; she cooperates with Jane and gets the wife's confession. (Antonio Sabato, Jr also guest stars in this episode as the yoga instructor that Maura sets up Jane with.)

RIZZOLI & ISLES ''Money for Nothing'' Review Episode 5

RIZZOLI & ISLES is giving me a case of whip lash. Just when I think I'm out, the show pulls me back in with a better episode. The drowning victim at the center of Money for Nothing is Adam Fairfield, whose brother Garrett (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) used to date Maura. The Fairfields are considered a Boston Brahmin family, meaning they are direct descendants of the English Protestants who founded Boston. This high class society is the main conceit that runs through the show, giving us a new perspective on Maura. To Read More Click Here . If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

RIZZOLI & ISLES ''She Works Hard for the Money'' Review Episode 4

Despite my dislike of snakes (if you remember from last week's episode of RIZZOLI & ISLES), I think I preferred last week's show over tonight's She Works Hard for the Money.  It seems that we have taken a step in the wrong direction. I am a bit perplexed by Rizzoli & Isles. The ratings must be doing well, because the show is already renewed for another season. Yet I still find myself bored silly by the evidence gathering, chase scenes, and peering over dead bodies. There is a generic feeling to the scenes that seems to dull the show. Is it just me? The case tonight revolves around the murder of Danielle, a straight-A student with a full soccer scholarship at Boston Cambridge University (BCU). There are no witnesses, but evidence consists of a piece of plastic from a broken laptop and a bracelet coil key chain with a barcode key. Jane and Frost learn that Danielle was cut from the soccer team and lost her scholarship after getting hurt. Korsak tells them that she paid her tuition in one big lump sum. Frost discovers that the key is for a locker at a high end gym, containing a fancy dress and high heel shoes. Deduction: she's a hooker with a pimp and a schedule book. The book is found in the form of the calendar in her computer, which was at the repair shop. In the meantime, Maura finds a hair on Danielle's body, which she determines to be synthetic material from a toupee. That toupee belongs to a professor at BCU, who is being blackmailed. He is found dead. The gun that killed Danielle and the professor are the same gun. Cut to vigil for Danielle. Korsak finds a way to read the scratched off serial number on the gun and tells Jane that it is connected to Danielles Resident Advisor. The RA senses something is wrong when Jane and Frost start closing in on him, so he grabs Danielle's friend Natalie. Mayhem ensues. She gets shot but survives; the RA gets shot and dies.

RIZZOLI & ISLES ''Sympathy for the Devil'' Review Episode 3

After the first two episodes, I was apprehensive about watching this week’s RIZZOLI & ISLES again. I had looked forward to the pilot episode, but high expectations brought big disappointments, specifically in the writing. Still I kept an open mind while watching episode three “Sympathy for the Devil”. Rizzoli & Isles can’t be approached like your traditional procedural, despite its same old crime drama facade. It is part procedural, part drama, and a sprinkling of comedy. So it was a relief to find out that this week’s episode finally gave my senses a bit more stimulation. The episode centered on a family from Cape Verde. The victim Matt appears to have died during an exorcism or purification ritual. But Maura is unable to find a cause of death (obvious or otherwise), until after she and Jane meet with Matt’s mother; search the church; question the priest; witness an exorcism ceremony; and visit Matt’s father Malcolm and his second wife. Jane and Frost also follow the trail of evidence, leading to Matt’s fellow gang member. He is strong-armed by Frost, and then later throws a fire bomb into the church window, in revenge of Matt’s death. This conveniently eliminates gang ties as cause of death. After being set up on a surprise date by her mother, Jane solves the case with the help of a premonition dream, where Matt is showing her a bunch of purple flowers - the same kind that Jane saw at Malcolm’s house. Maura immediately thinks of a plant, commonly named Monkshood, which is one of the most toxic plants known to man. They trick Malcolm’s wife into confessing and get their killer, who just wanted her own child. The episode ends with Lieutenant Grant, who was the surprise date, and Jane almost kissing but not kissing, because he is leaving for a new job in Washington DC. Do I smell a recurring character?

RIZZOLI & ISLES ''Boston Strangler Redux'' Episode 2 Review

With the popularity of Tess Gerritsen’s novels, RIZZOLI & ISLES was a highly anticipated show. But reviews were mixed for the first episode with the majority of people clearly hating it. (Strike one!) Episode 2 of Rizzoli & Isles, called “Boston Strangler Redux”, introduces us to Jane’s childhood friend Lieutenant Grant (Donnie Wahlberg), who transferred from the drug unit to homicide. To Jane’s chagrin, he is now her new boss. When three dead bodies turn up one after another, Jane, Frost, and Korsak surmise that they may be the work of the Boston Strangler who could still be alive despite all evidence to the contrary. Or it could be a copycat reenacting the crimes of the serial killer. Jane and Korsak request help from former homicide detective Leahy (Brian Dennehy), who gives them his private files from the Boston Strangler case. Surveillance camera photos that Jane’s brother produce lead them to arrest Redmond Jones, a suspect from the murders 40 years ago. But while everyone is celebrating and taking credit, Jane has a “gut feeling” and discovers that Leahy’s alibi doesn’t check out. She captures him in the end, right before he is about to kill Maura.
