'Rizzoli & Isles' 5x03 'Too Good To Be True': The secret comes out

Korsak: “How do you rule out little green men? They are a slippery bunch.”

“Too Good To Be True” is the July 1 episode of “Rizzoli & Isles.” If you haven’t seen this episode, beware of spoilers. “Rizzoli & Isles” airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. central on TNT.

Everyone learns about the baby in this episode. Some by Angela, and Jane does tell Korsak. It’s definitely amusing watching Jane learn who all Angela told about the baby. The family moments are one of the best of parts of the show. It was great to bring Tommy back, even for a brief moment. I had sort of forgotten what he had been up to, until he started talking to Maura about assembling a jogging stroller.

What’s unfortunate is that we don’t see the conversation with Casey. It’s a huge part of the episode, Jane worrying about how Casey will react. It’s not weird that Jane is worrying, but it is weird how the aftermath of the conversation with Casey happened. All we have is Jane’s relay of what happened. I couldn't tell if Jane was being completely truthful. It could have been handled better. Even if the actor couldn't appear for whatever reason, Jane relaying what Casey said could have gone over better. Did you think that whole conversation where Jane tells Maura what happened was strange?

Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing more of Maura. Her conversations with Korsak this episode are great. She gives a bit of insight into the psychology of the victim. While this information is great to have, it doesn't make sense to me that it comes from Maura. She does acknowledge that she isn't a psychiatrist, but she does go ahead and give her take on the psychology of the crime. It just doesn't feel right considering Maura hates guessing on time of death, whether or not something is a homicide, and where a long gray hair on a body came from.

What did you think of the episode? I’m not ready to think about replacing Frost. Leave me your thoughts in a comment below.
