So what do Jane and Maura do after solving a double homicide with nothing but a Leatherman and some duct tape? They finish the race, of course. All the other racers have long since gone home and it is now dark out, but our gals keep their promise to each other. Jane even says she thinks the runner’s high has kicked in. That or she finally caught a glimpse of Maura in her running outfit and experienced that, um, endorphin effect.
Jane gives Maura a little love bump before they race each other the makeshift finish line. Then, with Jane’s mom, dad and brother cheering them on, Jane and Maura finally give us the real Totally Gratuitous, Totally Gay Touching we’ve been waiting for in the form of a four-second, full-body hug. Yes, of course I timed it. So did you.
Well, that’s it for our little Rizzoli & Isles Retro Subtext Recaps. The remaining three episodes were already recapped during the regular season. See recaps for episodes 1.08, 1.09 and 1.10 if you haven’t yet. Thanks for playing along. And may the subtext be with you.
