Rizzoli & Isles Season 4 Review “Partners in Crime”

On the summer finale of “Rizzoli & Isles,” the gang finished strong with a clever spin on the old Hitchcock classic “Strangers on a Train.” In “Partners in Crime,” we got two murders for the price of one that were, at first, seemingly unrelated. But, as the evidence began to pile up, suddenly they didn’t seem so distant after all…if only the gang could prove it.

I was a bit nervous about the show having to come to a slightly premature ending, what with the sad and untimely death of actor Lee Thompson Young, aka Detective Barry Frost. Not so much that they had to end sooner than expected, but that Young would at least go out on a series of strong episodes that did his legacy proud. Thankfully, that was indeed the case, as this has arguably been the strongest season of the show overall so far. Between the heavy drama with Maura and her extended family and the various ups and downs of Jane’s inner circle, the show has been knocking it out of the park all season.
