Jane: “How would we survive with one shoe?”

“Tears of a Clown” is tonight’s all new episode of “Rizzoli & Isles.” If you haven’t seen this episode, beware of spoilers. “Rizzoli & Isles” airs Tuesday nights at 8 on TNT.

As if you needed more reasons to hate clowns, now they are kidnapping small children. This case has a tie to an older case where a clown kidnapped a young boy. There really is not a lot of time spent really delving into the cold case aspect, and seeing as how big a part it plays, it would have been better to spend a minute or two more at the beginning going over the old case files. This isn’t a huge issue, but it provided slight confusion. Other than that, the case was alright. The conversation between Jane and the kid they rescued was fantastic and adorable. What did you think of the case?

Having to choose between two loves is difficult. Jane and Casey both want to be together, but neither can really picture giving up their career. However, Casey seems more willing to leave his job to be with Jane. This debate could have been better. The writers could have shown Casey and Jane discussing other career opportunities if either one of them were to quit their job. Unfortunately, the conversation never gets that far. Neither Casey nor Jane entertain what they would do if they gave up their job. Hopefully this conversation will happen in a future episode. Can you see either Casey or Jane giving up their job?

Maura struggles with the idea that Jane could leave her to be an army wife. While this doesn’t paint the best picture of Maura, it is a very realistic feeling for her to have. This storyline shows how human Maura is, and how much Jane means to her. No one wants their best friend to move away, especially when you work side by side with your best friend every day. It would have been nice to have a longer conversation between Maura and Jane about this or maybe have Maura discussing her feelings with someone else. Either one of those options would be much better than causing strife between Maura and Frost. It was unnecessary, and the only slightly good thing it did was put Maura and Frost in a scene together. What did you think of Maura actions?
