“Rizzoli & Isles” Subtext Recap (7.06): It Was a Dark and Lesbiany Night

Previously on Rizzoli & Isles: Maura gets her brain operated on, looks as glamorous as ever. Maura’s birth mother returns, still no sight of the parents who actually raised her. Kent plays with melons–don’t worry not Jane or Maura’s.

If there’s somethin’ strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? Jane and Maura! They ain’t afraid of no ghost. Even a creepy murderous ghost that lurks in a creepy old hospital filled with creepy faceless statues.


Maura shows up at Jane’s place in the midst of a rainy nor’easter. Looks like someone in the costume department heard me begging for more trench coat action in the final season. Maura’s cute little fisherman’s hat is just an added bonus. A grateful lesbian nation thanks you.

As Maura arrives, Jane is, of course, all wet. I had to, guys–there are only seven episodes left. I have to get these jokes in while I can. Actually, it’s just the roof to Jane’s sublet that is leaking all over the living room she never sits in because she is always at Maura’s place. In fact, she is so distracted she doesn’t notice Maura pulling out a dress.


Maura presents said dress proudly to Jane. You can tell she has picked it out special for her girlfriend to wear and knows intimately how it will cling to each one of her curves. She says it’s for Jane to wear “tomorrow night”–but we all know there will be a little private preview later tonight in the boudoir.

Jane is completely unfazed by Maura bringing her clothing to wear, but is a tad confused about why. Maura, thinking this is one of those girlfriend ploys to get out of a previously agreed upon obligation, tells her not so fast. She’s taking her to the mystery writer’s workshop in that dress, and she is gonna like it. Now nod your head and say you understand, Jane.


Jane suddenly remembers the conference, wishes she hadn’t, but acquiesces because we all know she is whipped as hell. I mean, Dr. Maura Isles is her girlfriend–wouldn’t you be too?
