"No More Drama In My Life" featured nothing but drama for both Jane and Maura - and things only look like they'll get more complicated next season...
Maura's New Family…if you can call it that. I'm really torn over what to feel about Dr. Hope Martin.
I couldn't imagine the emotional turmoil of being told your baby died, only to find out decades later that wasn't the case. Knowing you've lost all of that time with your own child must be devastating.
So when she finally waltzed back in to Maura's life after having said she never wanted to see her again and asked for her kidney, it was hard not to feel what Jane did when she told Maura in this Rizzoli & Isles quote...
Maura: She said I wasn't her daughter.
Jane: But then she remembered she needed your kidney for her real daughter, Kaylin. | permalink
What hurt the most was that Maura was fairly sure Hope wouldn't have been begging Kaylin to donate her kidney if the tables were turned.
But Maura's a better person than that, which was why she not only agreed to donate her kidney, but also wanted to keep it a secret from her half sister.
Jane's Love Life…is on hold as usual. This poor woman can't catch a break. Thankfully, Maura convinced her to go talk to Casey before his surgery. She may not have liked the answers but at least she now knows the truth as Casey told her:
I can't live without being able to feel you. | permalink
If there was any doubt in his mind about the risky surgery, I'm sure it disappeared the moment Jane said she couldn't wait for him in her moment of crisis.
The Building Collapse…was a decent, if not spectacular, season finale disaster. Obviously there are some things that shouldn't be recycled and concrete is one of them.
It was obvious what was about to occur the moment Frost, Tommy and TJ set foot in that parking garage. I really expected the threesome to acquire more injuries but the special effects that showed the cracks across the building were pretty cool.
Will Casey survive his surgery? Will he and Jane reunite for real? Will Maura reconnect with her biological family or simply drop off a kidney and move on? And will Tommy get rich from his lawsuit against the building developer and marry Lydia? Tune in next summer to find out.
