Detective Jane Rizzoli and Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Maura Isles team up to solve crimes in Boston.
A young Hispanic woman prays to the Virgin Mary, gripping her arm and lighting candles. "I know I failed you, but please Lord, please help me," she says. Someone joins her, she's glad they came back and assures whoever it is that they'll get through it. She has a tattoo of a die inside her wrist. The unseen person puts a garotte around her neck and strangles her.
At Maura's, they get ready for TJ's christening. Rondo, Jane's CI, shows up in a burnt orange zoot suit with a Christening gift -- a Rolex that he says looks real. He and Tommy met in the café last week. Frankie worries about work, he's no longer exclusive to the drug unit. The headline in the paper says: "BPD cuts to Affect all Detectives."
At the church, Father Cro wley is doing the christening, which is awkward because apparently Tommy ran him over in a crosswalk. Tommy spent three years in prison for breaking his legs. TJ's mom Lydia is there. Her fiancé Stuart "Strawberry" Strawbridge shows up, which is news to Tommy. Maura is distracted, she thinks she smells human remains.
They hustle everyone out and open up the baptismal font. There's a young woman in agricultural lime (a powder) inside.
Korsak and Maura check with the gardners, Mateo and his son Samuel, who's going to Britmar, a good school. Another man, Sal, shows them the lime.
Back at Maura's house, Tommy and Frankie start eating the cake with their hands. Tommy worries he'll lose custody of TJ; he hasn't filed the custody papers.
In the morgue, Maura reports the victim is between the ages of 17 and 22. She was wearing a locket of a young girl and her mother. There's a faded receipt in her pocket. Maura sees the die tattoo, it's less than eight hours old and was done with a ball point pen.
Later, Maura shows Jane x-rays of the victim's two spiral fractures, one in each arm.
Jane Googles Strawberry and sees a photo from his work wishing him fairwell as he takes his "new family" to Abilene.
Down in the café, Angela is determined to get Tommy and Lydia back together so she doesn't lose TJ.
Frankie calls Lydia and asks her to come by so she can give her TJ's present, he'll get Frankie there.
Korsak and Frost read letters from their bosses warning them they might be reassigned, maybe back to patrol.
Jane snags a tribal mask from Maura's office and gives it to Lydia as a baby gift, saying it boosts IQ. Jane and Maura talk up Tommy. Lydia tries to find positives in her situation, including that TJ will have brothers and sisters, Strawberry "wants his own kids."
When Lydia goes to leave, Jane invites her out for a good bye evening, saying she's being transferred to Guam. Lydia agrees to a girl's night. When she leaves, Maura announces her ring is fake.
Korsak gets the ink on the receipt to reappear with a hairdryer. It's from Cortez Bodega, which is across the street from the Off 93 clothing factory, the brand of clothing the victim was wearing.
Frost and Korsak take an age progression photo of the young girl in the locket. The manager recognizes her as Isabella, the daughter of a seamstress, Blanca Valdez. Frankie has surveillance footage from the bodega, Isabella bought a candle and pregnancy test. They break the news to her mother.
Back in the station, her mother says she couldn't accept college scholarships because she was undocumented. She doesn't think she had a boyfriend. Maura politely tells her that her daughter was four weeks pregnant. She has the same die tattoo as her daughter, which she says is from the Four Corner's gang, to claim her as property. She thinks the gang killed her.
Maura brings a cold case on Aracelli Ramirez who was killed in 2004.
They think Isabella took her pregnancy test at work, but she didn't have a cell phone, so they think she talked to someone there.
At Jane's later that evening, Jane and Maura throw together dinner for Lydia, laying on subtle guilt about her leaving. She takes to Jane's dog, Joe Friday. Tommy shows up with Rondo, expecting to move a couch. Jane pays Rondo to leave than slips the pot roast to her dog. Tommy and Lydia both find the "bad doggie" adorable. Jane and Maura duck out to get take out, asking them to watch the dog so he doesn't choke. They listen outside the door and hear Tommy mock her ring. Lydia leaves in a huff.
Back at the station,Frost has ID'd a factory worker with gang ties, Josie.
Maura announces to Jane that they need to find away to get rid of Strawberry. Jane ran a background check but he hasn't been arrested. Maura noticed he has dark circles under his eyes, and infers he has bad allergies. Jane realizes this means he can get all the dogs that Lydia is looking forward to.
They find Josie sent a text to Tito saying "the one you like is pregnant." Tito is the leader of Four Corners. They find a series of texts planning to jump Isabella. Tito was on house arrest, but Frankie and Frost go talk to Josie.
She says Tito wanted to sleep with her, but all they did was ink her. She says Isabella's boyfriend was some college boy.
Downstairs, Isabella's mom brings by a college sweatshirt from Brittmore College, where the church gardner's son goes.
Jane and Korsak talk to Samuel. He says he saw Isabella that night in church. His father warned him not to be seen with Isabella or the gang would going to kill them both. Samuel asks to talk to Father Crowley.
They go get him but when they come back, Samuel has hung himself from his belt in the interview room.
Later, Jane gets a hospital report that Samuel is alive.
They look up Samuel's father and find Mateo is a former Four Corner's gang member. They find him praying with wooden rosary beads at the church, they match the ligature marks on Isabella's neck.
He's doesn't deny anything, saying that once the gang marked her, he had no choice, the gang would have killed his son for trying to take her.
At Maura's house, Lydia and Stuart drop off TJ. Tommy brings the dog over and Stuart freaks out, saying he allergic. He runs out, telling Lydia to take a shower. Jane and Maura offer to babysit and urge Lydia and Tommy to head out. They leave for a walk and Jane and Maura share a high five.

Angela is taking classes to become a professional organizer and wants to try her skills on Maura.Jane and Korsak respond to a crime scene, called by her CI. A junkie named Viper had a bunch of cash but is dead now at a public park, with a needle in his arm. They find a .38 tucked in his pants and Evan's wallet in his pocket. Jane thinks it's odd, she's never known a junkie to shoot up in such a public place.Jane visits Maura in the lab, where she's beaming over her text messages. Viper OD'd with 80 percent pure heroin. A report says the syringe had no finger prints on it. Maura's phone buzzes again, but she hides it from Jane.

She looks at her bare feet and sees he has an ingrown toenail.They get a call that Chris is leaving the hospital. They meet him there, where he blames it on insurance. Chris says his dad never went to a nail salon. They tell him the mugging might not have been random. Chris says he hasn't seen his uncle since he went to prison, but doesn't think he'd hurt them. After Chris leaves, a nurse mentions that his insurance didn't run out, he's leaving against medical advice.Korsak and Jane stake out Chris as he leaves the hospital.

Jane calls for a search warrant.Later, police cars drive up as the container is being unloaded. Chris is in the cab. They bring drug sniffing dogs in the back. There are dead rats in it.The shipping manifest shows one of the customers was a nail salon. The drug dog finds nothing, which means Jane has to release the container. Jane talks to Chris while Frost looks at the contents. He finds studded cuffs that are unlawful in Massachusetts. It's enough to hold the container.Jane drops by Maura's, limping in pain from her toenail. Ian is there and offers her some wine. Angela has reorganized everything, alphabetizing it.Ian sterilizes pruning shears and numbs Jane's toe with Betadyne he has on hand with supplies he's taking back to Africa.

She digs through Ian's things and finds that he has multiple passports.In the morgue, Jane is doing necropsies on rats. Maura accepts delivery of more supplies for Ian and Jane asks her what she's up to. Maura runs a test on a rat's blood and finds it's chockfull of heroin. She also found blue fibers -- just like the blue blankets they found packing the contents. Jane thinks the blankets were soaked in liquid heroin. The drug dogs wouldn't have smelled it over the smell of the rats.Jane brings Chris in to the police station, telling him they found $2 million of heroin in the container.

Lee was the only one who knew where they were.Back at the station, they talk to Chris again. He says his dad didn't know about his smuggling scheme originally, but he found out about it when the weight of the container was off. He went to talk to Lee the day he died. Chris says he called his uncle when his family was taken.Maura calls with news. She finds Lee had a poultry mite infection, which she could only get from being around them. They find there was a closed slaughterhouse near the nail salon, a perfect place for her to cut and dry her heroin. As they race off, Jane tells Maura that Ian is wanted for stealing drugs. Maura is shocked that Jane was snooping.Jane, Korsak and Frost go to the slaughterhouse. They each search a floor in the dark. Jane whirls around when a machine is turned on.

He finally caves and directs them to the freezer.They find Chris's family asleep inside, but OK.Jane goes to Maura's house later. Maura's near tears. Ian's gone. She says he's the love of her life, but she never mentioned him because she tries to forget him. Jane apologizes for snooping. Maura says she can't talk about him because it's too upsetting.

05 Sep 2011Description ▼
A young woman races to get in her car late at night. It's dark and she fumbles to get her keys in the ignition. Before she can get away, a man comes up and punches through the window and grabs for her.Jane shows up at Maura's for their scheduled early morning run, but finds Maura isn't ready -- she's been up all night playing chess with Jane's ex-con brother, Tommy, who is staying there.Maura is quite taken by him.Jane gets a call to a possible homicide. Maura doesn't want to leave her game.At the scene, without preamble, Jane tells Maura not to sleep with her brother. Maura insists that she is attracted to his mind.The car has been stripped clean and there's no body, but the inside is covered with blood. Maura looks at the spatter and says both of the victim's carotid arteries were slit, so whoever the blood came from is definitely dead.The car is registered to a 22 year old from Michigan named Melissa Black. She has a parking pass for the docks.At the docks, Jane and Maura get the complete once-over from the dock workers including one aggressively rude and offensive one.In the office, they meet Ray Murphy, the union rep. He calls over Axel to ID her. He knows her as MJ, who walked off the job yesterday mid-shift. They hear a commotion and race to see the men rushing to see something in the water.MJ's body is tied to a piling. Maura sees an ice pick through her chest -- Patty Doyle's signature. Maura takes herself off the case and tells them to call in Dr. Pike. Korsak thinks he's pompous and has OCD.Maura doesn't want to risk a defense attorney finding out Patty is her biological father and using it to hurt any case they build.Bill Sutton, the CEO of the shipping company, asks if they can cover the body.He tells them the mob doesn't have any hold on the docks anymore, but might be wrapped up with the union. He promises to help.In the morgue, Jane is aggravated waiting for Dr. Pike (Ed Begley Jr.) to get started on the autopsy as he fusses getting his instruments arranged to his personal requirements.He says the victim bled out in under a minute.Maura goes and reads old news clippings of Patty Doyle. Jane tries to assure her that her father has nothing to do with her.Jane catches Maura IM'ing Tommy with chess moves.Jane hides behind the door when she sees a sensitivity training instructor approaching. Maura covers for her.Korsak and Jane go to MJ's home and break the news to her sister Shannon. Their father is on life support from a head injury on the job six months ago. He was a longshoreman.Her sister didn't know she was working at the docks or going by MJ. Shannon says Melissa didn't believe the union story that the accident was their dad's fault for drinking on the job and she must have been investigating.Dr. Pike brings Maura an SD memory card he found in Melissa's stomach.Maura and Tommy flirt over a game of chess at her house, when suddenly two men bust down the door. One holds a gun on Maura and tells her the other needs a doctor. It's a badly wounded Patty Doyle (John Doman) and one of his thugs.Maura examines him. He has a gunshot wound in his shoulder that broke his clavicle. Patty tells Maura he got shot over "business" but he had nothing to do with the woman at the dock getting killed. Tommy asks how he knows Maura and Patty tells him he's her father.Frost plays the garbled footage from Melissa's SD memory card. She was wearing the camera and running, but it doesn't show from whom.A testy cop from the crime scene at the docks brings Jane the battery form Melissa's car.Korsak reports that Melissa's dad's blood alcohol was .10 when he had his near-death "accident."Maura and Tommy sit out the night tied up at her house. Patty rests on the couch. Tommy asks her questions about Patty. Patty gasps and his goon orders Maura to help him and whacks Tommy when he talks back.Maura checks on him. She says he should be on an IV. He looks up at her and says she looks like her mother, and she would like Maura.Jane and Korsak hit the docks, to question the longshoreman. When the aggressive one from earlier in the days grabs Jane's butt, she chickenwings him and Korsak arrests him.Jane gets a call that Patty Doyle's right hand man has been found dead.Frost and Jane report to the scene, where Kevin Brennan is lying dead on the floor of a warehouse with gunshot wounds. Jane sees the amount of shell casings and other blood drops and thinks it was an ambush. Pike shows up. When he says Maura was unreachable, Jane races off.Maura's cell phone rings, but Patty won't let her answer it. Patty assures her he doesn't kill women or children or "anyone who doesn't deserve it." He tells her he's being framed. Patty and his goon leave. Patty says he's going to "finish what someone else started."Jane shows up 15 minutes later. Maura tells Jane what Patty said. Tommy says Patty would have to live by a code to rule the street and clearly loves Maura.At work the next day, Jane and Korsak look at files of his past alleged victims. Testy officer Duncan comes by with more parts of Melissa's car from chop shops for Jane. She expects him to be a jerk to her again, but Korsak and Frost promise he likes her.In the morgue, Maura asks Dr. Pike why he didn't do an exam of Melissa's teeth or gums. She's curious about post mortem bruising around her mouth and Maura thinks she might have bitten her attacker. Pike says he already released the body. Maura's upset he did it without having her sign off. He starts to defend his credentials, but she cuts him off and tells him to get the body back, reminding him that she's his boss.Jane and Korsak interview Axel the longshoreman. He didn't know MJ was Richie's kid. Axel says Richie was a "stand up guy" and was trying to address dock safety, running for union rep before he got hurt. Ray Murphy won. He has an assault and fraud record.Frost pulls up surveillance footage of Ray leaving just a few minutes before Melissa did on her last day. He has a fancy car. The footage shows Melissa following him.Jane runs into the sensitivity trainer in the hallway, where Axel has just told her he wants to file a complaint against Jane for insulting him. Jane pauses and puts on her sweetest face to apologize, and does so so convincingly that the jerk accepts her apology and backs off.Back in the morgue, Pike examines Melissa's teeth, right where Maura tells him. He finds a skin particle. Maura tells him to take the credit.At the docks, Jane and Korsak walk up to the union rep's office and hear a woman making moaning noises inside. They open the door and find Ray Murphy stabbed through the chest with an ice pick and his secretary tied up in the closet.Two of Ray's fingers are broken, but only two, so he gave up whatever the person was after.In the morgue, Maura tells Jane that Ray has a bite mark on his arm that matches Melissa. She thinks Patty was telling the truth and Ray killed her.Frost finds Melissa was backing up her footage to a wireless receiver in her car, which they just recovered. He pulls up the footage. It shows Ray Murphy going into a warehouse and talking to someone, but they can't see who. They zoom in and see it's the CEO Sutton, telling Ray to push the men to unload faster. Sutton did it. Patty was telling the truth.Maura tells Jane she better find Sutton before Patty does.Jane shoots out the glass door at Sutton's office building and she, Frost and Korsak go in. They find Sutton holding his broken fingers in the conference room. Jane looks out the window and see Patty getting into a car below.Jane comes home to Maura's and shows off her sensitivity training certificate. Jane gets a call from Patty, who tells her he's one of the good guys compared to the new way of doing business. He tells Jane his people would never hurt women or hard working people like Richie.Richie's daughter Shannon finds a stack of cash on her doorstep.Patty tells Jane to check the DNA of the blood alcohol test they said was Richie's. He tells her to take care of Maura, but Maura says she can take care of herself.Angela, who has been out of town, notices the busted-in door. Jane says Tommy did it when he forgot his keys. Jane gives Tommy chess advice, surprising Maura. But Jane says she's the one who taught him how to play.

Jane remembers Price as a former defense attorney she's gone up against in court and beat numerous times. She thinks he's making things personal as he subjects Maura to a pat down.Price gets a call that the victim just died. Jane is pissed that the warden's stalling kept them from talking to the victim before he died. He's 22 year old Graham Randall. He was in three weeks for possession of cocaine, a misdemeanor. Jane wants Randall's records, but Price insists on a subpoena. She yells at him and he calls her hysterical, further endearing himself to her.Korsak and Frost arrive.They check out the body. He was stabbed in each of his kidneys, an excruciating way to die. As they're looking at the body, Jane hears a familiar voice from behind a curtain -- she goes to look and sees it's her old tormentor, Charles Hoyt (Michael Massee), the serial killer who stalked and kidnapped Jane and stabbed her through the hand with a scalpel. He says he has a lot to tell her.Price explains he's in the jail after receiving treatment for cancer.

He asks Korsak to leave. Maura tapes Hoyt as he talks about the fall of 2005.He says he loves the feel of white velvet. "A young eagle lost its family of four," he says.

Maura reveals that she stole a vial of Hoyt's blood.Korsak and Frost have Graham's belongings along with three shivs from cells. He had a lawbook, which Jane finds odd for someone in jail three weeks. He was a college grad who ran a red light and got caught with coke.Maura is fascinated by the shivs made out of a tooth brush and chain link, but they're not the murder weapon.Frankie checks on Jane. He thinks he bombed the detective's exam.Jane watches the video Maura took of Hoyt on the sly. Jane's lieutenant tries to get her to focus on the current case instead of Hoyt. Korsak and Frost talk to the victim's mother. She couldn't get the $5,000 for bail, but Graham called and said "an angel" would be coming by with the money. A stranger showed up about an hour later with the cash.Graham had been accepted to law school.Maura cuts open Graham's bowel I the morgue and finds a tiny balloon. She cuts it open and finds teeth -- four from different people.Two are from adults and two are from children -- removed before the victim's died.Maura's computer dings, confirming the hot air balloon ride she was going to get Jane for her birthday.

Korsak heads home while Jane keeps looking.The next day, Jane runs upstairs in the same clothes. She remembers Hoyt said an eagle "lost" their family, so she went to Missing Persons and found the Wilsons -- a father, mother and two daughters. Their son was dropped off at college Boston College and he never heard from them again.Dr. Wilson was a medical professor at Emory, where Hoyt went. Frost finds Jacob Wilson's license. Jane wants to confirm the teeth belong to his family.Maura takes DNA from Jacob. He shows Jane a picture his roommate took on the first day of college, his youngest sister was wearing a white velvet headband.One the first day of school they went to the family pancake breakfast and blood drive, then his family left him at his dorm room. Both of his parents went to BC, where Westgate Park is.Frost confirms Hoyt was in Boston in '05, he was working for a mobile blood drive. Jane shows Jacob an old photo of Hoyt.

He's getting his own apartment. Maura offers to co-sign so he can afford some furnishings, but Frankie and Jane are immediately against it. He says some friends already helped him move.Later at night, with everyone else gone, Tommy comes back to say good-bye to Maura alone. He brings her a rare bottle of wine and looks deep into her eyes. He leans in to kiss her, but she stops him at the last second.He says an awkward good-bye.A bank manager unlocks in the morning and is bum-rushed by masked robbers, who zip-tie the front door shut and order the tellers to load up the bags from the registers as customers lie on the ground. The robber who had been cleaning out the vault, doesn't like the way the manager looks at him, so he shoots him dead. They shoot out the window panels of the doors and make their escape in the van.Frost and Rizzoli are on the scene, and so is the FBI. Maura and Korsak are processing the body. Frost decides to wait outside. Inside, Jane introduces herself to the Special Agent in charge of the case, Anna Farrell.

She finds a hair. There's splattered paint inside and red spray on the roof from a dye pack from the earlier robbery.Maura takes off the man's mask and Farrell recognizes him as John Polk, a recently paroled bank robber. He was on their list of suspects.His partner was Ricky Dunn, also recently paroled.Jane checks their heights and compares to the surveillance footage. They fit.Dunn has a long criminal history, but Polk didn't. But he's the one who pulled the trigger. Jane watches the footage of Polk pausing and looking at the bank manager again. Frost and Farrell continue being testy with each other. They run a search and find he and Polk played on the same youth hockey team. The bank manager Paul Lanford was also heavily in debt.Jane and Farrell go talk to his widow. She says Paul had been unemployed for a year and just started at the bank a few months ago.Farrell immediately shows her the photo of John Polk and tells her about the hockey connection. She brings up their financial troubles and Jane tries to smooth things over. Farrell goes to wait outside.Later, they both think Lanford didn't have anything to do with the robbery. She tells Jane she hopes she didn't mess things up. Farrell gets an urgent text and leaves.Korsak reports Polk's parents are on a cruise, so they'll have to notify his brother, David.Korsak has found Farrell's and Frost's old engagement announcement.Jane and Korsak visit David Polk and find him at preschool. He's not surprised his brother is in trouble, but is stunned and upset when he gets the news. He remembers Paul Lanford from his brother's hockey team and mentions he couldn't play because he ruptured his Achilles tendon. He asks if John killed him. He knew Ricky Dunn, his brother's accomplice was bad news.Back in the morgue, Maura finds still-wet red paint from the first dye pack on Polk, even though the robbery was two weeks ago.Farrell asks about a fingerprint report. They found three, Dunn and Polk and Jane's brother, Tommy, whose prints were on the rear view mirror. Farrell coldly tells Maura that Tommy is under investigation by a grand jury and Maura is legally prohibited from telling anyone.Maura asks Jane if she's heard from Tommy.Maura has ID'd the hair on Polk's body as Ricky Dunn's. It had fanning powder on it, a substance used on decks of cards. Jane remembers Dunn's profile as a gambler. Jane wants to look into gambling.Jane can tell that Maura is feeling really out of sorts, but she says it's a stomach ache.Maura walks to her car in the garage. Tommy intercepts her. He tells her sometimes he does "stupid, crazy things" and he apologizes.

Ricky Dunn runs. Frost follows and traps him in an alley. Dunn takes out a gun and says he's not going back to prison. He raises the gun and Frost shoots him. Farrell pulls up. She tells Frost they just took the getaway driver, Tommy Rizzoli, into custody. He can't believe she hasn't told Jane.Jane busts into morgue and chews Maura out for not warning her.

She shows him a picture of Tommy and he knows him as one of John's ex-con buddies.Farrell gets ready to interview Tommy. Jane drops by and Farrell lets her talk to him. She asks him how he could do it. He denies it and says that John was the friend who helped him move and lent him the van.He says he doesn't know Ricky Dunn. He doesn't have an alibi, he was in his new apartment asleep. Tommy says John was starting a new house painting job and he asked Tommy to work with him. Farrell breaks up the interview. As they're taking Tommy away, Jane asks him point blank if he did it. He says no and she promises she won't let him get back to prison.Farrell isn't interested in the possibility that John Polk was painting a house during the robbery, saying that a jury can sort it out.Jane visits Maura, who says the red in the van was a dye pack. The red under Polk's nails and in his nose was house paint. Jane thinks it means Tommy was telling the truth. She thinks if they can prove John Polk wasn't there it might back up Tommy. Maura gets to work identifying the red paint while Jane tries to find the other two bank robbers.Frankie comes by to hear Jane's theory. She thinks Ricky borrowed John's van to rob the bank, but John confronted him when he heard his friend Paul Lanford had been killed, so Ricky killed John and framed him.Maura announces the paint on John Polk's body was colonial red, a historic color in limited supply and used in restorations.Later, Frankie finds the house in Dorchester. He found a foreman that will testify John was painting during the robbery.They watch the surveillance footage again. Maura sees the robber slightly limp away and there's a look of recognition on Paul Lanford's face when he sees the ankle. John and David Polk are the same height and David has a ruptured Achilles tendon.Jane confirms that David Polk dropped his daughter off with his estranged wife a few hours ago and did the same thing during the last two robberies. They think the other robber is Carl Parker, another preschool dad.They pull up their financial records (instantaneously, no warrant!) and find David Polk declared bankruptcy and his house was forceclosed on by Copley Square bank.They're about to send units when they get a call that the bank is already being robbed.Jane gets there and David has already shot one hostage and been hit by a sniper. Over Farrell's objections Jane puts down her gun and goes in to talk. Jane asks them to let her get the woman medical attention. When they still say no, she calls him "David."They let the hostage go. David is angry at Carl for shooting his brother after he found them out. He doesn't think John would have talked. He got the idea and tracked down John's old partner, Ricky.Jane tries to talk them down, reminding them about their young children. David turns over his gun but Carl raises his and the sniper takes him out.Later, Angela picks Tommy up from jail. Farrell tells Tommy the charges against him have been dropped and he's not in trouble with his parole officer.Frost is about to just leave when Jane reminds him not to put the job ahead of her. He goes to talk to his ex-fiancé.Maura opens her fancy bottle of wine from Tommy to share with Jane and her grilled cheese. Jane tries to give her blessing to them dating, but Maura says she likes Tommy but loves Jane and wouldn't do anything to hurt their friendship.Jane takes a swig of the wine and spits it out. Maura thinks she just hasn't let it aerate enough, but she tries it, too. It's started to turn to vinegar.

1What Doesn't Kill You
05 Jun 2012Description ▼
Picking up from last season's finale, we begin with a crime scene and Jane freaking out to Korsak over shooting her best friend's father. Korsak reminds her he was head of the Irish mob and suspected in 15 murders.
Korsak didn't think this was how they'd take down Paddy Doyle.Flash back to Jane and Frost going into a warehouse, inside a man is telling Maura she shouldn't have come alone. He takes out a gun to shoot and from a gangplank above, Doyle shoots the man. On the ground, Agent Dean shoots at Paddy and hits him in the shoulder, then Paddy shoots Dean in the leg. So Jane comes in and shoots Doyle as Maura screams "no!"
Doyle falls to the floor below. Jane tries to stop the bleeding but Maura yells at her. "Don't you dare touch him!"
Later, Jane tries to talk to Maura, but she's really angry.
Maura defends her dad for shooting the guy who tried to run her over yesterday and put her mother in the hospital."We had a handle on it until Paddy crashed our operation," Jane says."Oh, you mean your boyfriend had a handle on it?" Maura asks.
Jane didn't know Dean would follow them, but he's a federal agent so he had a right to. Maura defends that Paddy just shot Dean in the leg and could have killed him if he wanted to.She thinks her father was only there to protect her.
Jane calls her naïve and ignorant."Well, at least I don't play judge and jury and kill people," Maura says.
Jane blames herself for involving Maura.
Flash back to Jane wiring Maura before she goes into the situation undercover.Jane reminds Maura that this is serious and someone is trying to kill her.
Later, Lt. Cavanaugh takes Jane's gun as evidence and chides her for not telling him she knew Paddy Doyle was in town. She has to go meet with the head of Internal Affairs.
In a convenience store, the clerk talks to a customer about the day's news when a masked gunman comes in and shoots them both.
At the station, the IAD guy John asks Jane how long she's known Paddy Doyle was Maura's father and then how long she's been sleeping with Agent Dean. He thinks it has a lot to do with her judgement today.
At the hospital, a doctor tells Maura that surgeons are working on her father, but he has no movement in his legs.
Cliff, another IA guy, joins Jane. He asks if she's doing favors for Maura.They are interrupted by Korsak and Cavanaugh who need Jane for a case -- a cop has been shot.Jane worries what's going to happen when they talk to Maura, who can't lie.
In the hallway, Jane runs into Agent Dean, who is limping but OK. She's mad at him for telling people they were sleeping together and for following Maura to the warehouse. She thinks he figured he'd be the hero and break the case and she feels betrayed. She brushes him off.
In the hospital, Maura visits her mother (Jacqueline Bisset) who is badly beaten. Jane's mom Angela visits.
At the convenience store, the customer turns out to be the cop, Walter Wisniewski. The alternate coroner Dr. Pike (Ed Begley Jr.) examines the body and is sure they were shot with a .38. The cop was shot in the back.They look at the security footage and don't think it feels like a robbery.
At the hospital, Maura tells Angela she feels bad for biting Jane's head off. She was in shock. Doyle kept repeating "Hope" and she wonders if it's her biological mother's name. The surgeon brings her a Do Not Resuscitate form and Maura gets upset, she tells Angela to leave.
At the cop shooting, Korsak urges Jane to get to the hospital to talk to Maura before IA gets there. To outsiders, he thinks they'll look dirty because they bent a couple rules.
Jane runs into the hospital and tells Maura that IA is coming. Maura is upset that Jane doesn't start with an apology. Jane quickly tells her that if their friendship ever meant anything then she hopes Maura will think before she answers their questions.
The IA guys show up and yell at Jane to stop talking to her.
They shoo Jane away and ask Maura questions about Jane. The doctor tells Maura that Paddy is waking up. She goes to his bedside and the IA guys ask her about a book that Doyle kept; she doesn't know anything about it.
Jane visits her mom at Maura's, who tries to cheer her up.She asks the story of how Jane and Maura became friends.Jane was working undercover in narcotics.
Flash back to Jane in fishnets and a mini-skirt trying to buy coffee from Stanley at the coffee counter and not having enough money. He doesn't know she's a cop and treats her like a hooker. Maura hears what's going on and tries to give her money but Jane snaps at her and tells her not every hooker has a heart of gold.
Angela and Jane are laughing at the memory when Maura comes home. She reminds Jane she shouldn't be there while IA is investigating and Jane worries about what she told them. She tells her Mom to get her things and forces Angela to choose sides.
Angela goes to get some things and gives Maura a hug. Maura lets her take a drawing one of her mom's art students made of a woman at a graveside.
Jane wakes up in bed with her mom the next morning. Frankie drops by for breakfast.Agent Dean knocks on Jane's door with flowers. She doesn't want to talk to him.
He tells her they had a wire tap on Paddy Doyle and he has cops on his payroll. He thinks she's being set up.He's being sent back to Washington. Jane softens and sends him off with a smile.
In the station, Cavanaugh relays the story of Paddy falling in love with a Harvard girl years ago but his father breaking them up.
Jane meets Frost in the morgue and she flirts to get Dr. Pike to do what she wants. They have to stop him from using forceps on the bullet and leaving mark that would ruin ballistics tests. And it's a .45, not like he said.
Jane sees Maura in her office and tries to talk to her but they end up insulting each other. Jane says at least her father doesn't stab people with ice picks and Maura says at least her father didn't move to Florida to sleep with some floozy he met in a pizza parlor.
Dr. Pike tapes the whole thing on his smart phone.
Cavanaugh interrupts, followed by an IAD guy who asks if they're having a "cat fight." Cavanaugh transfers Jane to Evidence and Maura turns in her resignation.
Maura comes home to find her house ransacked.
Later, Korsak asks if Paddy ever mentioned a book, he says there are judges and politicians on Paddy's payroll, too. Korsak tells Maura that Jane didn't know Dean would be there.
Maura says she resigned because she's the daughter of a mobster and they're all under investigation for trying to protect her.
Frost visits Jane in Evidence, where she makes off with a box of guns to test fire. She pulls a bullet and notices it matches the one that killed Wisniewski, which means he was killed by someone in the police department.Jane takes her findings to Cavanaugh, who is surprised it took her so long to figure it out. They knew Paddy had someone on the payroll in Evidence so he put her there to keep an eye on things.
They all head to Wisniewski's house and find it full of really nice things and also wads of cash in the wall. They find an old childhood photo of Wisniewski with Paddy as altar boys. Wisniewski has a bunch of old guns and they think Paddy had a deal with him to fence guns.
They head to evidence, where the guns are kept in barrels before an armored car takes them away to melt them down. But no one in the department is notified when they're about to be moved.
Jane says Dean told her the FBI thought Paddy was about to move on the guns. They start looking for them. They find scrap metal in one of the barrels and Cliff the IAD guy dead in another, apparently shot with a .44.
John the IAD guy finds them and they show him what they found. He thinks they should seal the barrels and leave them because if homicide starts investigating, the dirty cops will go underground. They figure the guns were hid elsewhere in evidence.
They go to Paddy's evidence boxes and find them full of guns. They decide to put everything back. But first Jane checks surveillance footage from 1976, including a photo of a woman who could be Maura's mom at a grave.Jane recognizes the photo.
She visits her mom and asks to see the drawing of the woman at the graveside.She compares it to the photo and runs out.
At the hospital, Maura's mother sits by Paddy's bedside. Jane confronts her with the photo and drawing. Maura's mom doesn't know who the woman is, but she's Maura's mother. She met Paddy years ago when he took her art class. He showed up months later with a newborn, saying the mother had died during childbirth.
He used to meet Maura's mother at the cemetery because it was the only place they were safe from his father.
Jane visits the grave of Baby Maura Doyle. Paddy told everyone that Maura and her mother had died.Jane notices something on the grave and starts digging. She pulls up a book with a photo in it.
Jane brings it to John in the hospital. Then she shows him the photo -- of John, Cliff, Wisniewski and Doyle. John was the dirty cop, not Cliff.
John pulls the .44 and threatens to shoot her in the hospital. She asks him if he feels lucky. He pulls the trigger but nothing happens. She removed the firing pins from all the guns before they put them back in evidence.
Frost and Korsak come in and arrest him, joined by Cavanaugh who tells her to get back to Homicide. Maura joins them and asks Doyle if he would have shot Jane."Hell yea, you're a cop," he croaks out.
Jane takes Maura to the baby Maura gravesite. Now she knows why her biological mother never looked for her; she thought she was dead. Maura asks to be alone, and tells Jane to tell Pike she's coming back.

10 Jul 2012Description ▼
A man wearing a mask lounges in bed in a robe. A blonde woman wearing a mask comes in wearing lingerie. He's expecting her. He tells her he's "Rodium." He tells her not to be nervous, but she tells him she's been instructed. He's done this many times before. She takes out a syringe and injects him somewhere below. He starts to convulse.
At Maura's house we pause for a little Dr. Scholl's product placement as Maura gives Angela some for her high heels. She's going off to work all dressed up. Jane thinks her mom has a "gentleman caller."
Maura's birth mother Hope calls her suggesting dinner. Maura invites her and her daughter over.Jane's phone rings. "Saved by murder," she says.
Jane and Maura go to the scene, a $3.2 million dollar house for sale. Maura freaks out about dinner and Jane suggests Maura sweet talk Angela into cooking and invite her.
The real estate agent is Georgette Wilkins. The house went into foreclosure a year ago when it was being renovated. She doesn't think it was a murder.
There's nearly a whole ear skewered on a gate and a blood trail.A Mercedes parked across the street is registered to Neal Murray.
The trash pick-up comes. Jane stops them from dumping the can. Neal Murray, minus one ear, is dead inside.
The victim co-owns an investment company. In the morgue, Maura has found a blonde hair. He's wearing a pin that says rodium.
There are needle marks on his penis. He has a heart condition so he couldn't take Viagra, but he could get injections to do the same thing.
Frost and Jane go talk to Neal's business partner, Dale. He introduces Doug and Lori Gatz, the high school coach and nurse. Doug and Dale went to high school with Neal. They're at Campbell High School, waiting for a ceremony in which Neal was supposed to present a check to the school. Dale and Neal helped set up the school's pension. Dale says they have high end investors and they don't lose money.
At Maura's for dinner, Angela is making gnocchi and wild boar ragu. Hope rings the door bell and Maura has Jane hide the sketch of her mom at the graveside.
Hope introduces her daughter Kaylen, whose a polite but quiet teen. At dinner, she says she misses London. She was in school at Oxford.There's clear tension as Hope talks about them needing to move to Boston. Kaylen excuses herself to use the bathroom and Hope explains that her ex-husband had financial issues so she always had to work.Hope excuses herself.
Maura whispers to Jane that Kaylen hates her. Jane brings Kaylen the rest of her cake, but she doesn't feel like eating. Jane tries to talk to her but she's polite and withdrawn. She thanks Jane for trying to talk to her, but tells her she's walking home, she wants to be alone. Hope gets out of the bathroom and goes after Kaylen, saying she's very fragile right now.
At the station the next day, Maura says there was no erectile disfunction drug in the victim's system. He had a heart attack but she hasn't found what caused it yet.
Hope drops by to apologize for Kaylen. She explains that Kaylen is very ill, which is why Hope brought her back to Boston.She contracted a bacterial infection while Hope was doing relief work and she's in desperate need of a kidney transplant. Hope isn't a match and neither is Kaylen's father. Maura wishes there was something she could do.
Korsak finds an ER record for Neal from a few weeks ago. A rapper named Heavy Drizzle aka Lamar Jones brought him in. He pulls up one of his songs, leading to some really bad rump shaking from Frankie and Frost.
Down in the lab, Jane finds Maura testing last night's dessert."I think we're a match," she tells Jane.
Maura thinks she can donate anonymously. She doesn't want to make Hope relive the worst event of her life, Maura's "death," by telling her.
Heavy Drizzle and his posse show up at the station. Frankie joins Frost in interview. He says he doesn't recognize Neal, even though he's his business advisor.
He admits Neal was his money man. He wanted liquid capital back and Neal promised Dale would get it. He was speeding with Neal in his car and gave him chest pains, threatening him to get his money back. Neal told Heavy not to tell Dale and gave him the money out of his own pocket.
Frost and Korsak meet with Dale, who tells them to talk to his lawyer. They notices his keychain is like Neal's.
Frost looks through Dale and Neal's financial records and declares them fishy. He says it looks like a Ponzi scheme.
Jane pries open the keychain and finds a flash drive. It pulls up a site for Ten Precious Metals, which displays women. Ten different levels of girls for ten different levels of investors. There's a calendar.
There was a secret sex party at the vacant house the night of the murder and other vacant houses different nights.Georgette Wilkins was the listing agent for all of them. They run her prints from her business card and find she's Candy Smith, a former prostitute. She sold Neal his house.
Neal and Dale were desperate for investors, so Georgette supplied the girls and the houses she couldn't sell. Neal threw the parties and got big investors.
Hope drops by Maura's office.Hope talks about feeling helpless and not able to protect her daughter, again. Maura reassures her. Hope just heard about the anonymous donor. She's worried she's losing her daughter. Maura makes her feel better.
Jane and Korsak confront Georgette/Candy, who denies knowing anything. She goes into a private club so they can't follow. Jane calls Maura to get her in.
Maura has the tox results on Neal: he was injected with potassium chloride.
Jane and Maura follow Georgette into the bathroom. She doesn't know who killed him. They use the same girls every time and the guys sign a release. Jane tells Georgette to hold another party that night.
In the lab, Maura compares Georgette's hair and declares it's not a match to the crime scene. She insists on going to the party undercover.
Cut to Jane and Maura going into the party dressed as buttoned-up waiters. They pull all the blonde hairs they see. Everyone is wearing masks, but Jane sees the coach from the school lift his mask. Georgette is draped all over him.
Maura checks the hairs they've gathered from call girls so far, but doesn't find a match.A little while later, Jane hears a scream and finds Georgette floating facedown in the pool.
Back at the lab, Maura says Georgette was pushed into the pool and hit her head. She's wearing a 4 carat diamond ring, the girlfriend kind.
Maura gets the results from a gel she found on Neal's body. It's from a butane gel used to keep food warm. They realize they should have been testing the caterers. Jane sees a print on the giant diamond.
At the high school, Doug leads a presentation to his fellow teachers advising them to stay with Neal and Dale's investment firm. Jane and Frost come and arrest him. They found Lori's print on the diamond ring, she tried it on before she killed her. Doug stole all the teacher's money.
So Lori the nurse snuck in with the caterers and injected Neal, the man who ruined her life.
Later, Maura's at home when Kaylen knocks on her door. Kaylen tells Maura her name means "uncertain."
"That's the name that my mother picked for me. Maura means great, that's the name she picked for you," she says.
Kaylen shows Maura the news clippings about her and Paddy Doyle and asks why she called her mom. She found the drawing of her mother at the graveside the other night when she went snooping.
"Do you have any idea what it's like to grow up in the shadow of a dead baby? I was never enough," she asks.Maura tells her she wants to help, but Kaylen doesn't want her kidney.
"Please don't through your life away because of me," Maura says.
Hope shows up with the police, Kaylen took her car.
Maura tells Hope that she's Paddy Doyle's daughter, and hers. Hope is shocked and doesn't want to hear it. She yells at Maura, then drags Kaylen out of there.

She's parked at the curb when a woman rear ends her. She gets out and tries to offer Angela the $30 she has. She's seven months pregnant, has an ex-fiancee and has a ton of unpaid parking tickets. She lost her job and her roommate kicked her out.

Frost checks GPS but can't track it. They mention Dr. Rod, who treated delusional people, called Jane. Maura knows he would have had an obligation to warn Jane if she were in danger. She mentions the weird texts.
They combine the partial prints from the glove and the shell casing together and get something to run. It pulls up Dominick the bread guy, who served eight years for stalking and maiming. He was Dr. Rod's patient.

9Home Town Glory
31 Jul 2012Description ▼
A man parks his car in an alley, takes off a pass and starts walking. He stops when he steps on something glass the breaks it. Someone unseen shoots him once in each leg then, standing over him, shoots him in the face and finally in the head.
Jane and Maura return to Maura's place and find baby stuff everywhere, Angela is throwing a baby shower for Lydia, mother of either her ex-husband's or son's baby -- although she does not know this. Angela thinks Lydia is a "sweet" girl who just needs some help.
Lydia comes back and Jane and Maura are called to a case. "It is so sad that people have to get murdered," Lydia says.
At the scene, Jane learns the victim is Shane Finnigan, the leader of the boy band Channel Street boys, and a childhood friend of Frankie's.
Jane wonders if he was using drugs again, since people score drugs in the alley. Maura finds a vial of what could be drugs on him.
At the station, Jane talks to his Shane's brothers, members of his band. They had just finished a show and were about to tour overseas. He missed a live webcast after the concert. They think he was using again.
Their father Ryan used to be their manager, but they got him thrown in jail years ago after they found out he was stealing from them.
Jane finds Maura rocking out to a Channel Street boys video over Shane's autopsy. Maura gets the tox screen and is surprised he had no drugs in his system and hasn't for at least six months.
Jane tries to console her mother, who tells her that one of their hits was about her. Angela asks Jane to come to Lydia's shower and asks Jane to text her.
Frost goes over Shane's car and finds his backstage pass and car keys in the car. He has expensive luggage in the trunk with his cell phone.
Upstairs, Korsak relays that all the bullets came from the same gun. They haven't been able to track down Ryan, the boys' father. Frost works on Shane's cell phone, which has military spec security to protect from gossip magazines. Frost accidentally triggers a self-destruct program on the phone, wiping out its whole history.
Down in Maura's office, Frankie arrives looking haggard but bearing the murder weapon. He ran from the scene to the station.
Jane drags Maura to go meet with Lydia -- she texted her from Angela's phone.They wait at the Dirty Robber. Lydia is late because she walked after running out of gas.
Before Jane can ask, Lydia tells Jane she doesn't know if Frankie or Tommy is the father. Lydia wants to tell Angela but Jane tells her not to.
Lydia meant to run into Angela that day because Frank used to say she was a great mother and Lydia wants to learn from her.
She's off to Lamaze class, Maura guilts Jane into going. Lydia's "happy place" is a mall. She doesn't plan to have tests done to find out who the father is. Lydia doesn't think it's right to keep the truth from Angela.
"What, you got a conscience now after you sleep with half of my family?"Jane asks.
Korsak comes in to the station to find that Frost never left. He found Shane's last text by going through the concert footage and zooming in on Shane texting on stage.It said: "I'm free, let's do it."
They think it was a booty call and Frost and Korsak head to motels near the crime scene.
In the morgue, Jane learns there was blood on the grip of the handle and she concludes it came from an amateur holding the gun improperly.
Frost calls Jane to report someone named "Jamie Relis" checked into a nearby motel before the concert. It's a name from "Friends with Benefits." They go inside and find a woman dead on the bed by a crack pipe. She's a famous pop singer named Gia.
Gia and Shane met in rehab. Gia had an article about Shane's death on her iPad. They wonder if it was a suicide.
Frost finds footage of TK "The Killer" Womack outside the motel where they found Gia. He managed Gia and Shane. He and his posse went in the motel at 12:15 and came out at 12:30 a.m.
At Maura's, Angela has gone crazy with the decorations. Jane brings Lydia, who is upset. Angela assures her she's better off without the creep that dumped her when she told him she was pregnant.
"He dumped me when I told him the baby might be Tommy's," Lydia lets slip. Then she tells Angela that Frank is the one who dumped her. Angela blames Maura and Jane for not telling her and then can't believe Lydia came into her house and family after what she's done. Angela leaves in tears ignoring Jane's attempts to apologize.
Jane and Maura drop Lydia off at her mother's house with her gifts. Her haggard mom comes out and tells her she rented her room out. Maura feels sympathetic but Jane tells her Lydia made her own bed.
Frost and Korsak talk to Womack the manager, who says Shane was worth more to him alive than dead.
Upstairs, they find Shane donated to a lot of children's charities and relief organizations. The band was broke, but a clause in their contract let them keep rights to merchandizing, online fan memberships and premium chats.
Maura reports the blood on the gun belonged to a white man, so it couldn't be Womack.
They still can't find Ryan and only have a cell phone on his social security application. Jane calls him, saying that Shane named him as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy.
Frost and Jane wait for Ryan to arrive at his PO box. They take him in. He denies killing Shane.
Jane talks to Frankie, advising him not to tell Angela he knew about Lydia.
Maura tells Jane the lesions on Shane's lips were from an anti-malaria drug. They find the same drug in Gia's system, and also find from her hair sample that she'd been drug free for at least six months. Shane's "I'm free" text meant he was quitting the band. They were going to Haiti to help with relief efforts and be together.
The blood from the gun isn't Ryan's, but it's a familial match to Shane. One of his brother's killed him.
They go back to the live webcast and find the program was old. Shane was worth more dead to his brothers.Maura is notified that the fiber in Shane's wound was denim. From the concert footage they find his brother Ronin was in jeans.
He has a hunting license, so he could have hit him in the legs from far away. But that doesn't explain the blood in the hand gun from an amateur. Jane thinks she knows what happened.
Jane and Frankie visit the brothers. Jane accuses them of making a pact to kill Shane.
Flash back to Shane in the alley. Ronin fired first and hit him, but the other brother couldn't bring himself to do it so he fired at the pavement. Then he fired and cut his hand.
Jane and Frankie arrest the brothers.
Frankie and Angela join Maura and Jane. Angela wants to move. She knows Frankie knew about Lydia, too. "I know you were trying to protect me, but I can't have my children think I'm pitiful," Angela says.Jane assures her her father is the one that's pitiful and they admire her for picking herself up. Maura says she always wanted a mother like Angela. They share a group hug.
10Melt My Heart to Stone
14 Aug 2012Description ▼
Hands make a plaster mold of a body, then carefully finish the details so it looks like Venus de Milo, complete with no arms. Pan up and we see what's being molded -- a dead woman.
On a field trip, a kid tosses a coin in a fountain to make a wish. He notices the statue is bleeding.
In the station, the gang prepares to welcome Frankie to homicide. They don't know yet if he got it, but they're optimistic. Cavanaugh introduces the new Detective: Riley Cooper. Jane's former "drug dealer" neighbor.
Frankie takes the new stoically. Cooper apologizes to Jane for the fact they met under such weird circumstances.Homicide's been a dream of hers.
"Was part of that dream playing us both for fools?" Frost asks.Jane reminds him being undercover isn't easy.
"So that makes it OK that you used us to get inside information so you could get the promotion?" Frankie says.
Jane doesn't understand why Cooper led both men on. Cooper says she likes both of them and Jane expects that means she'll find a way to make it right.
At the murder scene, the victim is encased in bronze, or at least appears to be until the crime scene techs drop it and it cracks, turning out to be plaster.The dead woman inside is cold like she was frozen.
In the station café, Maura, Jane and Angela console Frankie. He thinks he's going to be taking 911 calls for the rest of his life.
Maura sees Dennis Rockmond (Eddie Cibrian) coming her way. They went out and he never called. He's carrying a copy of his best seller, "Release Your Inner Winner and Win."He tells Maura he was traveling and should have emailed. He invites her to his book signing but she declines. Jane can tell Maura still likes him.
Down in the morgue, Maura is annoyed he disappeared for three months.
The victim has a streak of white hair and track marks on her jugular vein. She was in cold storage for two to six months. She's in her 50s with terrible teeth and no arms. She was strangled.
Frost found four cases across the country of dead prostitutes who were strangled, had their arms cut off and were encased in plaster.
They're dealing with a serial killer with ego. The other victims were found in locations used by kids.
Jane gives Cooper the victim's picture and asks her to show it around, she tells Frost and Frankie to go with her and get over their issues.
Cavanaugh checks with Jane to see what she thinks of Cooper and Jane approves. Cavanaugh is impressed with her, but says he'll never see another Jane Rizzoli.
In Maura's office, Jane worries that means Frankie won't get his badge.Maura found cigarette burns on the victim's feet. She delivered a child by C-section and had her tubes tied more than 30 years ago. Maura leaves for Dennis' book signing.
Out canvassing, Frankie and Frost give Cooper a hard time, overly deferring to her "expertise." She approaches an older hooker who recognizes the victim as "Cruella," whom, with the help of some cash, she remembers last seeing three months ago.
At the book signing, Jane finds things wrong with Dennis. Maura is totally smitten.Jane gets a text about another victim.
This Venus de Milo is on a moving carousel.Frost finds that the killer took out the security cameras with a laser pointer.
In the morgue, Maura finds the victim died within 24 hours. She also had cigarette burns. She recently had a baby but had heroin in her system. She was also a prostitute.
It's late at night, but Jane and Frost take the newest victim's picture around. Jane's CI Rondo recognizes her as Chrissy, she goes by Rainbow.
A transvestite suggests "Bear" might have done it -- he likes to choke people. Kitty describes him driving a blue pick-up with tools in the back.
Back home, Angela takes out her Lydia frustrations with aggressive knitting. There's a ring at the door. It's Dennis bearing an orchid.
He tells Maura his parents have been married 30 years and are still happy and he wants something like that. He liked her so much he freaked out and bailed.
The next morning, Maura tells Jane she's playing hard to get with Dennis.
The police have picked up "Bear." Jane shows him photos of the victims and he recognizes them as hookers. He's angry and surly. Maura doesn't think it seems like a sociopath, he's too angry.
They charge him with assault for throwing his tools at an officer when he was arrested.
Upstairs, they found plaster of Paris in the back of his truck. Jane wants to check for a connection to Hoyt, her old nemesis. She opens a letter left on her desk.
"Dear Boss, Do you like my work? Make sure you don't give the wrong sculptor credit. I'm about to sculpt my finest piece of work."
They get notification of another body at the zoo. He took out the security cameras again. Frost gets an email from a detective working a similar case in another city. Their suspect was Frederick Stone, he once shared a cell with Hoyt.
In the morgue, the third victim had cocaine in her system, not heroin. Maura wants to check if she was sedated.
Jane gets a text from Angela. She goes up to the café and finds Lydia going into labor. She's refusing to go to a hospital because she wants her baby to be born around family.
Tommy shows up and Lydia's contractions go away. She promises to turn over a new leaf.
In the morgue, Dennis comes in through the back door. He says it's his birthday and he wanted to relive the highest and lowest points of his year. The victims are on the tables and he remembers being wheeled in there. She agrees to celebrate with a birthday dinner later.
Upstairs, the third victim is ID'd as a 21-year-old prostitute who had a baby taken away a few weeks ago. All the victims had children.They think the Venus represents a "crazy mixed up symbol of love and eroticism."
Maura goes to Dennis' loft apartment for dinner. His private elevator is broken.He says his mom called him first thing to wish him happy birthday. They toast to his 36th birthday.
At the station, they get word Frederick Stone was arrested two days ago, so he couldn't be the killer.
Jane looks into "Cruella's" son, Mark. He'd be 36, he was taken away after repeated episodes of abuse. She used to burn him on the soles of his feet with her cigarettes.
Jane gets texted to Lydia going into labor down in the café.Frost comes down to say that Mark ran away from foster care when he was 8, found his mother, and got abused by her again.Jane goes to get the tox results on the third victim.
The lab tech tells Jane that Maura is out to dinner with Dennis. The tox results show the victim had the sedative Enderol in her system, the same thing that Dennis nearly OD'd on.
Jane finds the hand Dennis sculpted for Maura on her desk. It looks like the "bronze" Venus statues. Jane smashes it and finds a human hand inside. She calls for back up to Dennis' apartment.
In his loft, he shows Maura some of his sketches. He plies her with wine and is about to take her into his studio to show her his work when Frost, Jane and Korsak bust in. He grabs Maura around the neck and holds a knife to her throat. Jane assures him that he's much smarter than all of them.
He holds Maura as he backs up to the empty elevator shaft, babbling about how mothers should treat their children right. Then, all of a sudden, he flings himself backward. Jane grabs Maura. She's in tears and upset that she didn't realize Dennis was a killer.
Back home, Jane tries to make Maura feel better while Angela continues knitting furiously. There's a ring at the door, Angela expects her yarn.
Jane opens it and finds Lydia's baby.

Dana says he was hanging out with a blonde woman in her 40s.Back in Maura's office, Jane gets off the phone from an assistant district attorney who confirms they can't do much with Lydia. There's a three month wait for a custody hearing, during which TJ would be in foster care. They don't think Lydia will hurt him.Test confirm that the poison was delivered in the food. Jane asks Frankie to dig through the trash for the food and a disposable coffee cup.Maura flirts with Alex Simmons, the guy who brings the bodies. She thinks he's cute. He's in med school, but also sews, knits and crochets. He brought in Lucy Cox, 32, who was found dead in her apartment. She was sick for a week.Maura looks at her lung x-ray and sees bloody streaks on her fingernails. Then she tells Jane and Alex to hold their breath and head for the lab as she pushes the code red button.It could be anything from Ebola to SARS, Maura says later as tech come in Tyveks suits to clean the place out. They have to strip, take decontamination showers and get in the suits. Jane suddenly feels very modest and does a complicated dance hiding behind a trash can to avoid showing her bits.Maura checks with the CDC, there's no report of any hemorrhagic viruses in the area, but there is a report of treatable bacterial meningitis in Boston. Maura is awaiting the victim's test results.Alex's girlfriend, Suzy the lab tech, comes to check on him.

Phil said his car was stolen at the time.Jane decides to go to the Boston Joe's by St. Avitas.The barista recognizes his photo. He was with a tall, skinny dour woman, who the barista remembers took Phil's coffee and dumped a lot of sugar in it. They assume it wasn't sugar.Later, at Jane's house, Tommy says the paternity test confirms TJ is his. Frankie, Angela and Jane are excited to have the baby in their lives. They suggests fighting for joint custody, but Angela has another idea.The next morning, Jane stops by the café. Stanley tells her he wants to confess. Upstairs, he admits he hid Phil's food. He has it in a Ziploc bag. They give him a hard time, but tell him they can't charge him with anything.Upstairs, they look at surveillance from the Boston Joe's which shows Phil and the mystery woman. There's no sound, so Jane calls Frankie in to read their lips, which he learned how to do playing baseball. He thinks Phil is saying: "I didn't sign up for this, I didn't know men in tights would kill people." Or maybe "Mennonites."Facial recognition IDs the woman as Alice Vanderbilt. They head to her house and find her in her garage with her engine running. She's dead.Later, in the morgue, Maura confirms she died of carbon monoxide poisoning. Her prints were the only ones found on everything, so they're calling it suicide.Alex brings in the body of Brian Radcliff, 31. Alex thinks it might be meningitis. Jane realizes that's what Phil was saying, not "men in tights."Back upstairs, they find Alice was a quality control tech at Phil's company. She was previously an anesthesiologist.Maura reports there was an injection site on Brian's arm from a flu vaccine. Both victims only died from the meningitis because they had underlying conditions. They think Phil and Alice conspired to taint the vaccine so they could launch a class action lawsuit against the pharma company. But they'd need a lawyer.They find a name on Alice's lapsed medical license: Larry Bukowski.Jane, Frost and Korsak interrupt the AA meeting and serve Larry with a warrant to check his car.

She says Quentin wasn't "one of us." She says he and Anne were involved, but she still thinks he killed her.

Jane and Korsak urge him to go to the prep school and look into it.Jane texts Korsak to come to the café, she wants dating advice about Cavanaugh. He says Cavanaugh lost his son and wife in a fire a long time ago and hasn't had a serious girlfriend since.Down in the lab, they look at Slater's typewriter ribbon to reconstruct his manuscript.Maura gets the lab results, ID'ing the sticky stuff as Balsam fir sap -- the same sap found on Katrina's rock climbing things. It's not found in the area, only in the Berkshires.Frost comes back with a grappling hook. He found marks from one on her dorm room window. There are photos of Katrina climbing with Bradley, he has the Slater noose knot on his ropes.They also find grappling marks on Slater's balcony. But what is the connection between Katrina, Slater and Breyer?In the lab, Maura says Slater had only recently started his manuscript. They read a line from it: "He told me after a group session while he ate a turkey sandwich, that he'd beaten Katrina to death because she cheated on him.""Bradley Palmer showed up the same day I did at Breyer Mental Health Center, but I'd take my suicide attempt over what he did. He killed his girlfriend."They think Bradley killed Slater and Breyer to keep them quiet and that Slater only just finished the manuscript because Quentin's final appeal was denied. He planned to publish the book to expose Bradley Palmer.Frost compares the check he got from Palmer's father to the scrap found near Breyer -- it looks the same.Frost, Korsak and Jane confront the Palmers, arresting them both.Later, at the bar, they expect Quentin will be home by the end of the week.

25 Dec 2012
1We Are Family
An unseen person assembles a sniper rifle. Elsewhere, Jane makes Maura go for a run as she heals from donating her kidney to the sister she didn't know she had. She insists she's OK with her decision, but Jane says the sister is being ungrateful. At the St. Patrick's Day parade, Frankie shows his mom the motorcycle he just bought. Angela tells Maura she's worried about her. Frankie announces he's getting promoted to detective. Maura offers to help him fix his bike. Senator Malcolm Humphrey and his daughter Erica go by in a convertible in the parade. She won his seat in the state senate. The sniper takes aim from a window above and shoots Erica Humphrey in the head. Frankie and Jane spring into action and go up to the room where the shot came from. The victim's sister shows up at the scene with Erica's young child in a carrier.Jane doesn't think they're looking for a pro, the shooter threw up after firing. Later, in the morgue, Maura is still bummed she hasn't gotten a thank you from her mother for donating her kidney, even though she told her mom not to contact her. The victim, Erica Humphrey, has a five day old wound on her shoulder that could be from barbed wire. Upstairs, they review the victim. Her sister, Jennifer, who showed up just after she was shot at the parade, was her chief of staff. Maura comes up to report the bullet fragmented so she can't trace it. Maura asks to talk to Jane. She finally admits to herself that she's bummed about not hearing from her mom and she wants to know if her sister Cailin is taking care of her kidney. Suzy the lab tech comes up to report finding blueberries in the victim's stomach, matching the blueberry waffles in the shooter's vomit. They had breakfast together. They wonder if her husband Jeff Miller could have killed her. He got mocked as a house husband when she won. Lt. Cavanaugh asks Jane how Angela is doing and says to give her his best. At Erica's office, Jeff addresses Erica's staff. Jane and Frost think he sounds like he's running for office. He thinks his wife was killed because she was backing environmental legislation. He shows them a threat she received. Jeff and Jennifer don't know about Erica's breakfast meeting. Her calendar says "THT." Tomorrow's entry says "Deliver GBS."Jeff was at their kid's soccer game when his wife was shot. He refuses to give a cheek swab. Frost finds four bottles of dirty water in bottles under the sister's desk. Maura meets Jane and they spy on Cailin getting coffee; she sees them. Jane forces Maura to go talk to her. Cailin apologizes to Maura for how she treated her and thanks her for the kidney -- she guessed it was from her. She gives Maura a package and asks if she can text her some time. Maura opens the package, it's a scrimshaw (whale bone) necklace that her mob father Paddy Doyle gave to her mother, Hope. Back at the office, Frost and Jane look into a website, Stop Bad People. Korsak reports the bullet was a.22.Jane finds Maura hanging upside-down on a gravity inverter in her office. She's worried about her father's impending murder trial. In interrogation, Korsak, Frost and Jane talk to Ishmael, the young, nervous, nerdy man who runs the website. He says he was hired to harass Erica Miller online, but he doesn't know by whom. Later, Frost says soccer parents only remember seeing Jeff Miller at the beginning and end of the game. Jane sets Frankie on figuring out where Erica had breakfast. Maura reports the dirty water was well water mixed with soil. Her hard drive had test results from soil in Reedville. Jane and Maura run to Jane's place to check on her dog and she finds Casey on her doorstep. He's walking again with braces. He was misdiagnosed originally and they opened him up and found shrapnel pressing against his spine. Maura runs off, leaving Casey to walk Jane's dog with her. Casey tells her PTSD kept him from contacting her sooner. He kisses her and they head back to her place and get in bed. He stops, telling her he wants them to be in love before they go any further. In the morning, Casey tells Jane he's going back to Afghanistan for a few months to give training in virtual therapy for combat soldiers. He wants to try again with her when he gets back. In the office, Maura talks Jane out of looking for reasons to be scared about getting involved with Casey. Maura gets results that there was dirt from Reedville in Erica's wound. Jane checks in with Frankie, who gives her the name of a diner in Reedville that serves blueberry pancakes. Jane drags Maura with her to check it out. The waitress tells them something is poisoning the children in town. The Honeysuckle Battery company is in town. Maura found Hairy Honeysuckle pollen in Erica's wound; it lines the factory barbed wire fence. They think she snuck in. Maura says battery toxins could be carried home as "Take Home Toxins" by the workers -- or THT like Erica wrote in her calendar. The owner of the company, Bill Davenport, was out of town when she was killed. Erica wrote a grant that gave $2 million to Honeysuckle Battery for environmental safeguards. They think the company misused the funds. They notice who was in charge of compliance. Later, they meet with Jennifer, Jeff and Malcolm Humphrey. Frost tells Jennifer he traced payment to the harassing website back to Jennifer. Flash back to Jennifer taking aim at her sister as the baby hangs out in a baby carrier. Three months ago, Erica started testing the water and soil in Reedville but she found nothing. So she traced it to the new Honeysuckle Battery company. They think Jennifer took a bribe to cover it up. "Deliver GBS" stood for Good-bye Speech. Erica was going to resign and take responsibility for what Jennifer had done. Later, at Maura's house, Jane and Frankie tinker with his motorcycle. Angela comes home with Lt. Cavanaugh. The head into her place to make dinner together, and other things Frankie and Jane try to block out.
2In Over Your Head
A college student waiting for her friend sees what looks like a guy selling drugs. She approaches him.Cut to him dunking her repeatedly in an industrial sink in a warehouse until she quits thrashing. At the station, Frankie is dressed up like a biker in the hopes of getting assigned an undercover case faster. They have a new boss in DCU, Rafiel Martinez. Jane isn't exactly happy to see him, but Korsak is. Jane and Rafi have history. Jane and Maura are called to a crime scene at the beach, where the body washed up. Jane wants to get the body to wash out more so it's in BPD territory. She hates Bob Thatcher with the State Police, one of the men on the scene. They think they're going to have to share jurisdiction until Jane claims she sees an endangered horseshoe crab. When the state police go look, Korsak and Frost drag the body into the surf and get jurisdiction. Maura looks over the young woman's body and can tell she was drowned. Back in the morgue, Jane explains she and Rafi had to play a couple when they worked in the drug unit. She was hoping to never see him again. They got her CI killed, then they had a falling out and he took an assignment with a federal task force. That was eight years ago and she hasn't seen him since. Maura's half-sister Cailin comes by. She tells them scary men in suits came by their house last night and they seemed pissed. They asked about Hope's charity MEND and threatened her. She asks Maura to talk to her and says Hope is planning to move back to London, but Cailin doesn't want to go. Later, Maura reports the unidentified victim drowned in rain water, not the ocean. At lunch, Jane drags Maura to see her mom at a MEND clinic. Jane runs into a woman she once arrested, Shondra, who is now a nurse. She credits Jane with getting her off drugs and getting her to finish nursing school. Hope tells Maura the men who were at the house were accountants. She says Cailin wants to move back to London. Jane doesn't believe a word she says. Frost calls Jane to report the victim has been ID'd as Brenda Thomas, 20, a Psi Beta Tau. Jane notices someone following them, but says nothing to Maura. She goes to visit Maura's father Paddy Doyle in prison, telling him to call his goons off. But they're not his. It's the FBI and they're following Maura. Jane calls Agent Dean, her ex, who tells her the FBI organized crime division is investigating MEND and Hope and Jane thinks Paddy knows why. Hope started MEND 20 years ago when Paddy was a fugitive. Jane tells Maura she's being followed, too, but says there's nothing she can do about it. Korsak and Frost go through the victim's room and find cocaine. Brenda's friend Rachel says Brenda didn't do drugs, her brother OD'd. She studied all the time, to be an investigative reporter. Her advisor was Tyrell Feeney, but she called him Touchy Feeney. At the station, Korsak finds Feeney owns a boat. He's an adjunct professor and former reporter. Jane and Frost talk to Feeney, who says he doesn't know what Brenda was investigating. At the station, Frankie is mad at Jane that his new boss Martinez apparently has a grudge against Rizzolis. Korsak urges Jane to fix it. Maura tells them she found saline, fish gills and tin the water in the girl's lungs. They look up abandoned warehouses near the harbor and find seven. They find the crime scene at one of the warehouses. Frost finds a wireless microphone crushed on the ground, which matches the adhesive they found on the victim's chest. Frost accesses her audio files stored on the cloud through her computer. One of them has sounds of her being killed. Back at the station, Jane finds Martinez's business card folded up among Brenda's things. It says "Cricket" on the back. Jane goes straight to him and accuses him of getting another CI killed -- "Cricket" is his safety word. He says she wasn't his CI, but interviewed him for her story about drug dealing. Jane blames him for her death. He says they already picked up the guy from the buy Brenda made for him and they're trying to get him to make an introduction to one of his undercovers: Frankie. Jane worries he's going to get her brother killed. Jane and Maura go for a drink at the Dirty Robber and find it made over and serving tofu burgers.Jane tells Maura that years ago she got her CI killed, not Martinez. Eight Years AgoJane sends a young woman named Yolanda in to make a drug buy. She can hear the dealer get suspicious, but Martinez makes her wait a second. Then Yolanda says "Cricket!" They hear shots. They run to her, but they're too late. Back at the station, Frost plays a recording of Brenda asking a dealer to introduce her with his supplier. Cailin texts Maura: the Feds just left Hope's house. Maura breaks into file storage to go through Paddy Doyle's files. Hope visited the grave she thought belonged to Maura every year, but Maura thinks that wasn't what she was really doing. The scrimshaw necklace Cailin gave Maura can't be from the year Cailin said it was because it's of a bridge with a secret tunnel in Sarajevo, where Hope was doing relief work in 1993. It's called the Tunnel of Hope. Paddy was a fugitive then, she thinks they met up there. Hope started MEND thanks to a $2.5 million donation from an anonymous donor in 1993. They think Hope took Paddy's dirty money. Jane and Maura sit down with Hope and the financial statements for MEND. Hope claims she doesn't know who gave her the start-up money. Jane asks Hope if she was laundering money for Paddy. Hope wants to talk to Paddy. "I need to make this stop," she says. The three of them visit Paddy. Paddy says his father would have killed Hope and Maura if he'd known Maura was alive as a baby. Maura says he has a chance to protect them both by pleading guilty. "You know I'd kill for either of you, but I will never plead guilty," he says. In Maura's office, they get a report of transmission fluid from where they found the body and on the crushed microphone.Frost checks vehicle maintenance records for the State Police and finds one of their cars was leaking. They head to arrest the state trooper on campus and invite Martinez to come. He calls someone to keep him on campus. Frankie rolls his bike to block Bob Thatcher from leaving. Jane, Martinez and Frost pull their guns as Thatcher puts his to Frankie's head. Jane worries something terrible is about to happen. But Frankie wheels around, disarms Thatcher and knocks his bike over onto him. Jane and Rafi seem to forgive each other. Genial banter ensues.
