The season two finale of TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles started off with a blazing fire that left one firefighter dead. After investigation, Jane Rizzoli determined the fire was an arson and the search for the culprit began with Rizzoli and Isle determining it was an inside job.
Amidst the drama of the fire and investigation, the tomboyish and tough Jane lets her guard down with Gabriel (Agent Dean), accepting flowers and a date with her ex co-worker. In the middle of her at-home date with Gabriel, Jane receives a phone call that interrupts their dinner and sends her to the hospital to meet up with Maura who was involved in a hit-and run incident. The accident also involved Maura’s mother who ended up hospitalized after she pushed Maura out of the way of the speeding and reckless car, taking a life-threatening hit.
While visiting her mother in the hospital, Maura’s dead beat criminal father Patrick Doyle shows up to mend fences, leaving Maura feeling vulnerable.
After Maura shows up at the arson site, she is met with the arsonist firefighter who is set to kill Maura until her backup comes through to save her. Unknowingly, Maura’s father Doyle showed up and ended up shooting the arsonist dead. The cliffhanger finale ends with Rizzoli shooting Doyle. While he takes quite the fall from a high ledge, we are left with unanswered questions. Did Doyle die? Did he survive? Will Maura and Jane’s relationship be salvageable?
