Rizzoli and Isles (TNT, Mondays, 9/8C) returns for its final season with a two-hour premiere as the Boston Police Department seeks Alice Sands for the shooting that put Nina Holiday (Idara Victor) in the hospital.
Of course, since life carries on, there’s another case – the seeming accidental death of a university student when her car leaves the road on a curve.
TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles (Tuesdays, 9/8C) returns tonight with a visit from IAD when Frankie shoots a man but the guy’s gun cannot be found. It’s a case of a lead in a murder leading to something else entirely.
The Platform opens with Jane (Angie Harmon), Frankie (Jordan Bridges) and Vic (Bruce McGill) chasing a man with a yellow streak in his hair. They follow him into a subway station where they lose him. A shot rings out. Cut to one day earlier…
The fifth season of Rizzoli & Isles had a couple of obstacles to overcome in the loss of Lee Thompson Young during the show’s hiatus, and trying to remember him while moving on. It’s a measure of the show’s consistency that both obstacles were handled well.
In every other way, the show maintained its mix of procedural efficiency and character heart. In a way, season five was one of the show’s most inventive.
TNT has ordered an 18-episode sixth season for Rizzoli & Isles, its hit series based on the bestselling mystery series by Tess Gerritsen. After five seasons, Rizzoli & Isles continues to be one of basic cable’s Top 5 scripted dramas.
