With the popularity of Tess Gerritsenâs novels, RIZZOLI & ISLES was a highly anticipated show. But reviews were mixed for the first episode with the majority of people clearly hating it. (Strike one!)
Episode 2 of Rizzoli & Isles, called âBoston Strangler Reduxâ, introduces us to Janeâs childhood friend Lieutenant Grant (Donnie Wahlberg), who transferred from the drug unit to homicide. To Janeâs chagrin, he is now her new boss. When three dead bodies turn up one after another, Jane, Frost, and Korsak surmise that they may be the work of the Boston Strangler who could still be alive despite all evidence to the contrary. Or it could be a copycat reenacting the crimes of the serial killer. Jane and Korsak request help from former homicide detective Leahy (Brian Dennehy), who gives them his private files from the Boston Strangler case. Surveillance camera photos that Janeâs brother produce lead them to arrest Redmond Jones, a suspect from the murders 40 years ago. But while everyone is celebrating and taking credit, Jane has a âgut feelingâ and discovers that Leahyâs alibi doesnât check out. She captures him in the end, right before he is about to kill Maura.
