'Rizzoli & Isles' Recap: 'Dance With The Devil'

If you have watched Rizzoli & Isles from the beginning, the name "Paddy Doyle" is pretty close to a four-letter word. In this week’s episode, the penultimate trial is about to take place. As Detect... //

Rizzoli and Isles 4.05 Review: "Dance with the Devil"

It’s all been leading up to this! The trial. The ratings have been growing this season but I honestly can’t figure out why. I struggled to watch this episode without blurting things loudly in the direction of the screen, arm waving like a lunatic. We know that Paddy Doyle had a young, passionate relationship with Maura’s mother Hope. We learned that Paddy was the main backer for her non-profit and that’s a cause for worry. We know that he ran the Boston leg of the Irish Mob, and was responsible for no less than 15 murders. We know this. The FBI knows this. Jane, Maura and the rest of Boston Homicide know this.

Rizzoli & Isles Season 4 Review “Dance with the Devil”

On the latest "Rizzoli & Isles," we got some major revelations about Isles’ parents, both of whom we already knew had gotten up to some shady things over the years, but until now in the aptly-titled "Dance with the Devil", we didn’t necessarily know just how shady they actually were. (Needless to say, major spoilers ahead, so if you haven’t seen the episode yet, you’re going want to hold off on reading this for now.) We started out in 1993, with a mother and her baby being killed by a jauntily whistling man via a rigged house fire. Who were they? Were they even the actual target? Was Paddy Doyle involved somehow? The answers were startling and a bit unnerving in the grand scheme of things, given how everything went down. READ MORE...

Rizzoli & Isles 4.04 Killer in High Heels" Review: Conflict of Interest, anyone?

Maura Isles is a murderer!!!!!ri 404 2 The books portray Dr. Isles as a much darker character than she is on the television show. She's much more morbid than what we get to see, but the sum of both parts is that Dr. Maura Isles is a sweet, naive, awkwardly morbid, genius. She wouldn't hurt a fly. Period. She seeks truth and justice. And great shoes. So what happens when even Maura Isles starts to believe all the evidence that says she killed a man? The deck is stacked, and while I could argue that it's stacked a little too well, it's not out of the realm of the believable. READ MORE...

Rizzoli & Isles Review: Fundraiser From Hell

Dr. Maura Isles learned what it was like to be on the wrong end of a murder investigation in " Killer In High Heels " Talk about the fundraiser from Hell.  Not only was the event painfully boring, all they were serving to eat were peanuts. All for a good cause but I couldn't imagine the lack of sustenance would help donors open their wallets even more, unless it was Jane who ended up writing a $1,000 check before bailing on Maura.

Rizzoli & Isles Season 4 Review Killer in High Heels

On the latest episode of "Rizzoli & Isles," it was one of the girls’ turn to be targeted, as these shows are wont to do at some point, from time to time. In this case, it was Maura Isles in the appropriately-titled "Killer in High Heels," though the actual killer proved to be anything but. It was the classic Hitchcockian who done it, where the main character seems guilty as all get-out, but in fact, is being thoroughly framed for a crime they did not commit. READ MORE...

Rizzoli & Isles Season 4 Review But I Am a Good Girl

On the latest episode of "Rizzoli & Isles", it was the worst baby christening EVER, as the two discovered a dead body hidden away under the altar, covered in lime to mask the odor, in "But I am a Good Girl". Of course, nothing like that gets by Isles, who sniffed out the situation and cleared the room accordingly. If I were Tommy and Lydia, I would demand a re-do, because that’s just bad karma- or whatever Catholics call something like that. The victim turned out to be a young Latina with potential gang ties that turned out to be against her will. However, it wasn’t a gang behind her death, but a worried father, who feared for his son’s safety, due to his affiliation with the dead girl, who had been "marked" by said gang to be given over to a member for what one assumes was not a very Christian endeavor. That’s pretty icky all around, and it’s probably not going to do his son any favors when the gang guy finds out that his father killed the object of his affections. Nice going there, dad.
