Just as the episode title so obviously stated, it was a "new" start for the Season 5 premiere and one that didn't disappoint. New pregnancy hormones craziness! New Maura/Frankie awkwardness! New information about Detective Frost! New suits for Korsak! How could you not be excited about all of this?!
Let's go ahead and start deliberating this episode and see just what we get!
News came just a few days after the finale that Rizzoli & Isles would honor Lee Thompson Young's passing by giving him a proper send off in the 1st two episodes of Season 5. You can find more about it here.

A TV show's episode that is meant to both wrap up story lines and leave us hopelessly dangling for more and tonight's finale did just that.

To answer, I'm just a fan who decided it was time that one of my favorite shows had itself a reviewer (ta da!). I'm only going to do summaries for this episode, as well as next week's, as they're the final two until summer. And, yes, that was Antwon Tanner as Shabaz.
In the promo for this episode, one thing was featured: Maura, in crisis. Not only do we start off with Maura in a real crisis, but then we move on (rather quickly) to a crisis that turned out to be coffee. C'mon, Maura. I realize you're not the detective here, but shouldn't you recognize the label ...Read more
