A new love interest for Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) will be introduced when the series resumes on July 11th. In what could be a potentially recurring role, Isles hooks up with fellow doctor Byron Slucky, who has been acting as Rizzoli’s (Angie Harmon) trauma surgeon over the past several months. Wanting to get back to work, Rizzoli asks Slucky to clear her for active duty, but there’s some difficulty with her request.
Season 2 kicks off with the episode entitled “We Need Another Hero.” It’s been 12 weeks since Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) nearly died from a life-threatening injury, and something is still getting in her way of healing. While she claims to be fine, it’s her partner-in-crime Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) who notices Jane isn’t quite up-to-par. Oh, and did I mention there’s body contact between the two? Well, I did now!
Also joining in the season premiere is the recurring character of Sgt. Major Charles “Casey” Jones, an old friend of Rizzoli’s from high school. Currently on a tour of duty in Afghanistan, Casey takes an absence from duty to visit Jane on the day she’s given a major award. With a crime committed during Casey’s stay, he extends his visit to help assist in the investigation.
True-life political skullduggery of the highest order, as CIA agent Valerie Plame (Watts) finds her cover blown by White House officials. The main motivation for the expose would appear to be a 2003 New York Times op-ed piece by her husband, Joseph K. Wilson (Penn), stating that the Bush administration had sexed up their intelligence about weapons of mass destruction as they prepared to invade Iraq.
We just found out that the series will add at least four major characters, including a new love interest, a new relative and a new rival. Who are these folks, and more importantly, will they screw up the good thing that Jane and Maura have going?
