*Spoilers* Look Who Is Coming to Town!


We've been wondering about Maura's family. Looks like we may finally get to meet at least one elusive parent. According to TVLine.com:

Not only are we about to meet Rizzoli and Frankie’s kid brother, a 30ish screwup who’s fresh out of prison ... , but we’re about to be paid a visit by Isles’ mother, an art historian who’s so well put together she could make Helen Mirren seem inelegant by comparison.

Sounds like a promising episode or two, and, hopefully, we'll get some well thirsted after knowledge on what makes Maura Isles tick!

*Spoilers* What's Tommy Going To Be Up To?

According to TVGuide.com, here's what we have to expect when we first see Tommy:

Colin Egglesfield (Melrose Place) has booked a recurring role as Jane's youngest brother, Tommy, a lovable screw-up whose back home after a stint in prison. Sasha Alexander's Maura offers Tommy her couch while he sorts his life out. But that kindness quickly comes into question when her apartment is found ransacked and burglarized, leaving Jane to find her brother before the cops do.

Well, here we were thinking Tommy might be rehabilitated from hitting a priest with a car. How does one go from hit and run to stealing? Interesting...

New Behind the Scenes!

We Know Who Tommy Is!



Check out Colin's filmography here. If his pictures are any indication, it looks like the casting director has done a great job deciding on the third Rizzoli child. We can't wait to see him on screen!

The Best ADA?

Over at PopWatch, they wanted to know who the best ADA on Law & Order (the mothership) was. Well, we just have one thing to say to that...


Apparently, we're not the only ones to think so. At 47.71% Abby is winning by a landslide! If you'd like to throw in your two cents, we encourage you to do so! Go vote for the best. ;-)

Stretching...


Let's talk about this picture. We know for a fact that Liv fell off the treadmill when she saw it. [Don't worry. She's okay; she blamed the tripping on her bad knee.] Several Rizzles Girls reported uncontrolled gasps, moans, and/or squeaking. One girl pleaded the 5th to her father upon cursing out loud once the picture loaded. We saw several "iz dead" type remarks, and we're pretty sure more than one girl lost the power of speech if their misspelled and/or suddenly questionable typing skills were any indication of how... um ..."clearly" they were thinking upon seeing this picture.

So, we just want to throw this out there...

Thank goodness for Twitter!

She Wakes...



Nanci, you're the best for sharing this stuff with us! PS, Your photography work is really great. :-)

Sneak Peak! SPOILERS - Sort Of


We can't wait to see it!

Dr. Schmunk, We Appreciate You!

Season Two Thoughts


We did an informal survey regarding what the Rizzles Girls's community would like to see in Season Two. [By "informal survey", we mean Liv asked the question on Twitter and went with it. ;-)] We had some very interesting returns on the question, and we wanted to share them and add some thoughts.

Besides the obvious, which, in case you've just wandered here from elsewhere, is that we'd all love to see our favorite detective move into a romantic relationship with our favorite medical examiner, we had someone mention they would love to see a flashback scene showing the doctors and such saving Jane at the hospital.

We find this to be a very interesting thought, and we think it's a scene that many take for granted will actually happen. We're not so sure about that given the spoilers we've heard about season two so far. However, seeing how Jane's family, friends, and coworkers react to the situation of Jane being shot is, we think, an excellent way to see character growth. We give this a thumbs up. We'd love to see something like this. How would Korsak react? After all, this isn't the first time he's seen Jane severely injured. How does Frost rise to the occasion of his partner being wounded? What's going on with the Rizzoli family with two out of three children down for the count? How's Maura dealing with the aftermath?

We had someone say they'd love to see Jane and Maura interact with children. We did see this very briefly in "She Works Hard for the Money". The first scene has Maura giving a tour to a group of girls who are rather uninterested in being there. Jane's reaction to dealing with the girls before they arrive is funny but negative. Maura then ditches the girls in favor of going off with Jane to a crime scene. Given how that interaction turned out, seeing how the two of them would have to deal with or how they would interact with children due to, let's say, a case is very interesting to us. We see both comic relief and loads of potential subtext with something like that.

More Bass and Joe! There's been an outcry for it. We have to agree. Those two are cute. Maybe we could see Jane insist on making Bass wear a little Sox helmet? Who wouldn't want to see that?


<--- More of this eye stuff right here.

Yes, we approve. We'd like to see more of that as well.





Some of us would like for Frankie to be given a break. We think he deserves a boyfriend or at least a date that's not trying to kill him and can cook. We would love to see this as well because giving Frankie a girlfriend would be a great opportunity to see more interactions with Frankie, and we'd like to get to know him better.

We don't really know much about Frankie except he's Jane's younger brother and a cop. We also know he's worried their Mother is going to leave their father, and he wants to be a detective like his big sister one day. But, can anyone tell us what Frankie's favorite beer is? No? That's because we've never seen him hang out with Jane except to break her nose, or talk about their parents. We'd like to see more than that with him.

One of the really big things we find a lot of people would like to see is more background on Maura Isles. We get fed bits and pieces, and we're hungry for more than that. Who is the socially awkward genius besides Jane's "best friend" and Boston's Chief Medical Examiner? What makes Maura tick? The show is called "Rizzoli & Isles". We want to know about Isles just as much as we know about Rizzoli.

Who are Maura's parents? Where are they now? Are they even living? Exactly how rich is Maura? What does she do on her down time? Who is she attracted to? What really scares Maura? Who is Maura's boogieman?







There's a random sampling. [Don't worry, we tested it for bacterial levels before feeding it to you.] Leave us a note below and tell us what you'd like to see in Season Two!

Frankie?! (Sort of Spoiler)



Shhh! Angie Is Sleeping!

Look Who Is On Twitter Now


Though she is, no doubt, busier than a bee in spring time, Janet Tamaro is giving twitter a try! As we all should know, Janet is the Executive Producer for "Rizzoli & Isles". We think you should give her a follow. Go on... go follow her... we'll wait right here...

Some Fun Stuff (Sort of) SPOILERS

If you can get past the first part where we have to rewatch that thing we don't like to talk about, SashaFansOnline has reposted a fund little video from TNT about season two. Go check it out! Or, you can go have a look at it on TNT's promo site for their new summer season here.

From the Video
A word from Janet Tamaro, Executive Producer

The first thing I want to tell you is that, whatever you're reading about these new characters, it's not true. So, if you really want to know what's going on, watch the show or give me a call. Jane and Maura are the stars of our show... Oh! I gave it away! Jane survives! I love reading viewers saying, "Did she... did she die?" Well, if she died, I would not be in this office. I wouldn't have much to do all day long, would I? So... no. Jane is alive. She's so alive and well that in the season opener Jane will reconnect romantically with a high school boyfriend, which is going to be a very fun episode. We're going to give both Jane and Maura some romantic, um... let's just say "hook ups". I think they're not ready for a fiancee or a long-term relationship. I don't... I don't think I want to go there with them yet. As far as the new characters go, nobody is going to take the place of our beloved Jane Rizzoli or Maura Isles or Vince Korsak or Detective Frost or Frankie, Jr. or Mom, Angela, or Tommy Rizzoli the youngest Rizzoli who is going to be showing up maybe episode three or four with all of his baggage and all of his troubles and his charisma and charm, and do that thing that the youngest sibling does, which is to rock the boat in the family.

This Week's Winner!

Congratulations to this week's winner: @ ! We're very happy for you!!  Congrats on being added to the Spring Challenge Champs list.

Angie in Leather

Winners!


Congrats to both AngetothePange and _victoria_! That was a tough one. For those of you wondering, here's the answer:

Subtext! Right There! We See What You're Doing There


You know, we can't help but notice that Maura has a habit of answering to Jane's call for sweets as if it's a term of endearment she's accustomed to hearing from Jane. Has anyone else noticed this?

Themes?


If any of you ladies happens to know what this is, exactly, we'd love to hear it!
