“Rizzoli & Isles” Subtext Recap (2.13): Having a good-looking LLBFF is the best revenge


They find out that Maria had a congenital heart condition and was using one of the valves Mr. Still-A-Douche’s company created. They also discover that Steve made several calls to Maria at her preschool. Jane says he wanted to talk to her “bad,” and Maura corrects “badly.”

Jane: I hate it when you correct me.
Maura: Well I hate it when you forget about Mr. Adverb.

That’s what you get for saying you don’t like Maura’s fun facts, Jane. Frost can’t even contain it, he’s like, “OMG, you two. Just go find a quite room in the lab and have some sex. I swear, the sexual tension between you guys. Good thing there are scalpels in this room because something sharp and pointy needs to cut it immediately or we’ll all burst.”

Turns out, the valve in Maria’s heart was defective, and the valve in a lot of the recipients’ hearts are defective. But if that news got out, the company would stand to lose tens of millions of dollars. So, nothing like a good old-fashioned cover-up to make murder happen. I know, I know – why am I talking about the plot when I could be talking about the classic body-language archetypes being demonstrated by one Dr. Maura Isles and one Det. Jane Rizzoli in this shot. I mean, could they be more butch/femme here. Really?

Jane gets to haul in Mr. Still-A-Douche, because they found particulates from the tennis court at his country club at the crime scene. He, predictably, continues to act like a douche. They search his office, but find very little. Korsak, however, finds an old rap video from Frost. I have no idea what this has to do with the plot, but it makes me love Korsak and Frost’s work husband dynamic even more.

A lead has them bring Emily back in, but I think Jane just wants another look at those big, beautiful – um, er – eyes, yeah her eyes. But she’s wearing a crew neck and everyone’s sad about this error in judgment. Also, she didn’t kill her husband, but she and her kids were threatened afterward by the culprit.
