It’s been a piss poor few days around my house, as none of us are feeling greatâ€”my new 9th grader feeling the worst of the three of us. 🙁 So I may not actually get stuff watched tonight, but my DVR is busy nonetheless. Check out what we think you should be watching. 🙂

The last new episode of Rizzoli & Isles was kind of a heartbreaker for Jane and Frankie because one of the guys they knew growing up was killed. When they learned that his brothersâ€”the other members of his â€œboy bandâ€â€”had killed him, the heartbreak just wratcheted up a notch. I think my favorite part of the episode, though, had to be Maura listening to and watching the victim and his brothers sing and perform while she performed an autopsy on him. It was just an incredibly sad episode, and not just on the case front. Angela found out that Lydia had slept with her ex-husband (husband at the time? I don’t know..) and son both and wasn’t sure which was the father of her baby. Angela was understandably hurt, and at first, she was almost more upset at Jane and Frankie, who knew but didn’t tell her. She started to move out, but they convinced her she had nothing to be ashamed about, that it was all their father’s fault and not hers, and she stayed, gathering the two of them and Maura in a group hug that was very sweet.
Tonight is the summer finale. I don’t know when it will be back on, but I assume in January or thereabouts. I hope the mid-season ends on a good note for Frankie, who thinks he bombed his detective’s interview, and for the whole Rizzoli family, what with a possible grandbaby or half-sibling on the way.
In tonight’s episode, â€œMelt My Heart to Stone,â€ a statue breaks open to reveal a dead woman inside; the squad gets a new homicide detective; Dennis Rockmond returns to Boston and tries to woo Maura; Lydia goes into labor.
