First things first, Sasha Alexander's acting was brilliant in this episode. Now back to your regularly scheduled recap... (Reminder: Click the pictures to see the full-size image!)
*Hello Angie without a bra!
*Gasp! Someone's watching Rizzoli from the bushes. Oh, right... that would be me. Guilty.
*Oh, Maura knows ALL about whether or not Jane got a good night's sleep or not... But seriously, I think their intuition about each other goes beyond just good detective (or medical examiner) work.
*Jane's nightmare of "I dreamed I showed up to work in my underwear" is apparently Maura's fantasy. C'mon, this is her reaction:
Yep, that would be wide-eyed delight.
*Cut from crime scene to Jane at the bar with her brother, Frankie. Silly Jane! Women don't have lives outside of their husbands! Women don't get to make choices about their lives. (Sorry, it's the Mormon thing...)
*And Jane flirts with the new waitress girl... (And on the next episode of Rizzoli & Isles, Jane and her brother go out cruising for women together. I wish.)
Back in the "real world," the waitress goes for Frankie.
*Okay, seriously... Only Sasha Alexander can pull off looking cute dressed like this. Holding a human heart, no less.
Well, it works for me...
*Jane is, once again, scared to be alone. Um, of course Maura will stay with you, Jane. Have you not been watching the show? Sheesh.
*Maura wants to show Jane that she can protect her just as good (if not better) as any man.
Aren't her eyes just begging, "Please, Jane. Teach me how to shoot a gun." So adorable. And of course, Jane can't resist (I mean, hello, could you?)
*Really, I could do a whole post filled with screencaps and commentary on how sexy Jane teaching Maura how to shoot was.
My favorite part:
"You look good."
I can't decide if this look says, "Aw shucks," or "Damn straight!"
*"Do I look badass?"
"Yeah, you look like a badass."
Correction: We've seen Maura's ass... it is definitely NOT bad.
*Maura pretending her fingers are Jane's lips...
Right, Maura. You aren't bossy...
*Back at work... "It's very distracting to work in a wrinkled dress." Just say what you mean Maura! Just tell Jane that you except to be able to keep some clothes at her place for sleepovers. Although I don't know why she doesn't already keep some clothes at Jane's house. She's ALWAYS over there.
Anyways, Jane tells her to go home and change. And best Rizzles line of the show: "No, I'm not leaving you."
*Damn you, Billy Burke! Nobody wants you here.
Jane is thinking: Yeah, I'll get coffee with you. But let me look over my shoulder to check and see if it's okay with my girlfriend.
Like Maura Isles would ever be threatened by you... HA!
*"Hello, Mr. Hoyt. Stay the f--k away from my girlfriend."
*Hoyt compares Isles to him. And Maura being the sensitive femme, takes it personally. Jane, of course, tries to get Maura alone. "Yeah, Billy? Do you think you can leave? No one (and I really mean no one) wants you here."
--Insert Tender Moment Here--
Korsak to Isles: "Jane's right, you are one impressive chick." Of course Jane is always talking about Maura.
*Moral of the Episode: A girl that doesn't reciprocate Jane Rizzoli's flirting is obviously evil.
And she's a homophobe, too. Lola to Jane: "It's not the kind of relationship someone like you could understand."
*Worst Part of the Episode: No Maura/Jane Ending. And don't get me started about the kiss... *eye roll*
But who wants to end on that note?
