“Food for Thought” is tonight’s all new episode of “Rizzoli & Isles.” If you haven’t seen this episode, beware of spoilers. To review the last case file, click here. The season finale of “Rizzoli & Isles” airs next Tuesday night at 8 on TNT.

A famous chef gets murdered. As soon as it is mentioned that the victim won a cooking competition and currently works with the two people he beat out for the win, it was obvious that one of the other chefs would be the murderer. The case wasn’t horrible, but there weren’t any decent twists about it. There was a moment where it could have been interesting, and that was if the potentially explosive package connected with the case somehow. Of course, the bomb is not actually a bomb, and it has nothing to do with the case. Did you enjoy the case?

I get the feeling that the writers really wanted to focus on Maura during this episode. The writers honestly should have picked one and expanded it, instead of cramming a bunch of moments. Hope and Maura’s storyline is alright. It’s nothing new, and all it does is begin a clean slate with Maura and her mom. This is not a bad thing because seeing the two of them develop a relationship could be entertaining. Frankie and Maura having romantic feelings, on the other hand, is weird. It just feels strange to see them either consider it. Things would be different if they had always had banter or sexual tension, but they haven’t. Maura and Frankie come off as brother and sister. The writers will have to work to change this perception if they want to seriously pursue Frankie and Maura as a couple. Would you want them to get together?
