    Question: In Tess Gerritsen's police procedurals, medical examiner Maura Isles is described as Goth-looking, but in Rizzoli & Isles, the new TNT series based on the novels, she's completely different. Why don't they go by the book?

    Answer: "It's an interpretation of the book," says Sasha Alexander. "I think the most important thing was getting to the core of who Maura is--this wonderfully eccentric coroner who comes from this wealthy family with a very mysterious, kind of dark past." Alexander adds: "Maura is an odd duck. She says she loves working with dead people because she feels she can speak to them--they're not going to judge her."

    Why just 13 more? I'm already in withdrawal and its first 10ep season isn't even yet finished! These short, short seasons are frustrating!

    TNT shows are short shows. They're not like regular shows. In season 1 we only had 10, I am so glad there's 13 ordered for this one. That's a lot more than we had last year.

    The Closer is the same way, it started with 13 ep a season but they get 15 now. I think it's mainly because they show new episodes when all the Primetime Network shows are on hiatus which make for shorter seasons. It's smart because they don't have much competition.

    TVGuideJanet Tamaro on the Season Finale: I Wanted to Leave Them at Odds

    "I wanted the finale to be big and complicated and gothic and overwhelming for Maura," executive producer Janet Tamaro tells TVGuide.com. "This intersects her family, her job and most importantly, her friendship with Jane, which is now at risk."

    Click on the link and read the interview to find the answers to the following:

    Does Paddy die?

    How did this ending come about?

    We've seen Maura and Jane have little tiffs, but never at odds like this. How will this affect their relationship? Jane was doing her job, but will Maura see it that way? Can she forgive her?

    Are they going to be on speaking terms? They do have to work together.

    We just see how stunned and taken aback Jane is. Will she stand her ground and use "doing my job" as her defense or will she feel guilty?

    Maura goes through a whole range of emotions when it comes to Paddy, from anger and bitterness to care and concern. Do you think her reaction surprised her? t was a very Maura-heavy episode - both of her parents' lives were hanging in the balance - and she and Constance have grown closer this season. Will this be a springboard for more family-centric story lines for her?

    That must mean she'll look up her biological mother.

    Paddy mumbled "Hope" after he was shot. I take it that's her name?

    How will Constance figure in this? Will she and Hope meet?

    We can't forget about Agent Dean (Billy Burke). I assume he'll be back given the part he's played in this.

    DeadlineHollywood:

    Production on the set has been shut down due to Lee Thompson Young's death. The producers are currently evaluating whether to resume production Tuesday or go on hiatus while the cast and crew cope with Young’s death and writers figure out how to write off his character.

    For more go to the link above.


    Update Aug 20/Tues: Production has been stopped and put on an indefinite hiatus so that cast and crew members can grieve the 29-year-old's passing.

    The creator of the show Janet Tamaro and the book author Tess Gerritsen have stated many times the two are straight and love men. Tamaro has stated in interviews that her wish is "to write a show that depicts two strong, intelligent women in a very close, uncompetitive relationship."

    Angie Harmon said in an interview with the LA Times, "I hate to disappoint, but these characters are straight! .... I think that a lot of people are going to project on it what they want but I’m not saying we didn’t help. We knew it was there in the first [episode] and it was absolutely no surprise to me. I think it’s fantastic and fun and awesome as long as everyone is good-natured about it. There are some people that got angry that we weren’t [gay] and we found ourselves on the defensive, like 'I’m sorry! We didn’t create these characters. We’re just acting what’s on the page.' It’s not our fault."
