If you know anything about me, you know that I love crime shows. I could watch them all day, every day. I basically do. Between marathons of Law and Order, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, and Rizzoli and Isles, I watch Jeopardy and random sporting events. I have watched all of the spinoffs of Law and Order that have existed: L&O Criminal Intent, L&O Trial by Jury, and Conviction (my personal favorite–all the episodes are on Netflix, by the way). R&I has been my favorite for quite some time.
If you also watch this wonderful show and don’t want spoilers, DO NOT READ BELOW THIS POINT. Spoilers will exist. (But feel free to check back after you’ve watched!)
The end of the fourth season came with some interesting personal developments: a possible pregnancy and a first kiss. Both of which were super awkward to watch…if you’re a believer in what as known as “Rizzles.”
Casey also proposed to Jane and sent her an email asking her to go with her as he fights the war. She decided she wasn’t going to stop her life for that. (YOU GO, YOU INDEPENDENT WOMAN!)
This episode started with Jane having a nightmare about having a child. I can say from personal experience that it’s quite scary. It comes out later that she actually is pregnant.
This episode’s case revolves a dead mother and her missing baby. The mother was killed in a park while out running with a colicky child. The mother was found with stab wounds and died from exsanguination.
Maura and Frankie’s first kiss at the end of last season ended up with several awkward interactions. Some of which were adorable, but I was thankful when they both decided they were going to remain as friends. And I learned today that Sasha Alexander, the actress who portrays Maura Isles, actually uses moisturizing lip balm, thanks to a very enlightening livetweet session.
Detective Frost–played by the late Lee Thompson Young–was involved in a car accident on the way home from his mother’s house where he spent his vacation. He unfortunately did not survive.
This episode lived up to my expectations and was certainly worth waiting nearly an entire year for. Next week’s episode is sure to be a tear-jerker as it is the episode memorializing Det. Frost.
I’m looking forward to what the rest of the season brings!
