Those Smart & Strong Women Are Back...

Whenever I read a romance novel I'm always looking for a heroine who's smart and strong and does the rescuing instead of needing to be rescued.  The same is true for the tv shows I watch and luckily TNT's Rizzoli & Isles, based on books written by author Tess Gerritsen, gives me two heroines who fit that description.  Tonight's episode looks to add a bit of fun to the drama after last week's serious episode involving family.  Here's a brief synopsis of what you can expect from tonight's episode.....

"Jane attends her high school reunion and brings Maura along for the ride, but the fun is cut short when one of her old classmates turns up dead on the football field. Jane must focus on the past when she realizes that everyone in her class is a potential suspect. Meanwhile, Korsak gets a visit from ex-wife Melody Patterson (recurring guest star LOLITA DAVIDOVICH), who hopes he'll invest in her new business. Plus, recurring guest star CHRIS VANCE returns as Sgt. Major Charles 'Casey' Jones, an old flame of Jane's, and recurring guest star MATTHEW DEL NEGRO appears as Angela's car mechanic, Giovanni, who has eyes for Maura."

Last week's episode had Jane thinking her brother was a criminal and it was intriguing seeing that familial side of the character.  Rizzoli is a character who keeps her past quiet and doesn't show her emotions fully, so any glimpse we get of her past is a gift and another piece to the puzzle of who she is.  That's why I'm looking forward to tonight's episode and getting another glimpse into her earlier years.
