There’s only one episode left before the season finale of Rizzoli & Isles airs, so get ready for a heavy doss of drama tonight. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind so far and tonight’s episode, titled “Fake It ‘Til You Make It,” is no exception.
Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) and Dr. Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) head west to Hollywood but the trip is far from fun and games and sunshine. After a body turns up in Boston, the dynamic duo realize that it has a connection with another murder that took place in Los Angeles and the two jet to the opposite coast to figure out exactly what that connection might be.
Of course, as we’ve come to expect throughout the series run, both Rizzoli and Isles have very different reactions to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. Isles finds herself enjoying a different coast and asks Jane if she can see herself ever making the move to LA but it’s far from Rizzoli’s style.
Meanwhile, back in Boston, there’s a bit of romance in the air as Angela (Lorraine Bracco) and Korsak (Bruce McGill) plan a double date. It’s one of the rare times that viewers will get a glimpse into Korsak’s private life, including his girlfriend Kiki, as well as Angela’s new boyfriend, Ron.
There’s also trouble brewing in the background, with the season finale looming next week. According to showrunner Jan Nash, a season-long nemesis has been at work unbeknownst to Rizzoli and Isles. She told TVGuide:
There’s a mysterious element to it. It takes a while to figure out what’s going on. When they [Jane and Maura] do figure out what’s going on, it’ll take a while to catch the perpetrator.
Rizzoli & Isles airs at 9 p.m. on Tuesday night on TNT.
