Rizzoli & Isles Review: Multiple Murder Boy

at .

"Love the Way You Lie" had a lot more to do with lies than love, at least where our multiple murders were concerned.  Let's start with murder number one…

Suicide Boy. I'm sure Ethan Slater's depression, drug use, and eventual suicide pact made for quite a page turner. Korsak couldn't put it down and although I understood Kevin Baker's anger over his sister's death, I knew he wasn't the killer.  He was so angry he would have made it hurt, a lot.

Slater's steampunk room was pretty cool.  The antique typewriter was a great collector's piece but I couldn't imagine working on it every day.  I can remember using an electric typewriter as a kid and there was always a lot of White Out to go over my many typos.  Thank goodness for computers with automatic spell check for when my fingers work faster than my brain.

Maura & Jane Destress

My only disappointment was that no one ever found the Murder Boy manuscript. It would have been a great way to solidify Quentin's innocence.

Frost's Past. Frost couldn't let go of that old case and I figured Bradley Palmer murdered his girlfriend the moment he showed up at the precinct. He and his father appeared far too cocky. That's always a bad sign.

The twist of all of the murders boiling down to one killer did surprise me given the disparaging time line. 

Health and Wellness. I was surprised to find out that most cops die within five years of retirement. That's a frightening statistic but does it really mean someone needs to take away their coffee? A little exercise and meditation certainly couldn't hurt but take away their caffeine permanently and the homicide department might end up investigating one of their own. 

I was shocked Jane fared as well as she did, especially when she found her boss in his underwear with her mother. 

But wasn't it great to see Angela living a little.  As she told Frankie in this Rizzoli & Isles quote

Angela was happy, until Cavanagh pulled the plug. At least it led to one of my favorite scenes.

I really enjoyed that Angela went to Korsak to ask his advice.  I loved their honest conversation and I hope that Cavanaugh comes to his senses.  He deserves a happy life too and he Angela looked like they were having fun.

With murder, meditation, and monkey chatter, Rizzoli & Isles once again made me smile on a dark winter night.
