    I did not love the flashback scenes in this one, but there were some good moments, and although this kind of murder has been done before, the show handled it well.



    Solid episode overall.

    Interesting case especially for Jane, so Dr. Victoria Nolan has written a book about three serial killers one of whom is none other than Charles Hoyt who we all know tried to kill Jane twice, Hoyt had this strange obsession with Jane. Jane and Maura are expected to speak at a Law Enforcement Symposium where they stage a mock up of one of the crimes (Hoyt's Murders) so when the staged crime scene is revealed, its not staged the murder victims are real and is basically torn from the pages of Nolan's book. When Maura takes a look at the victims she notices one difference that is not in the book, the two murder victims are branded which Hoyt never did, so they could be looking at a possible copycat murder. So everybody at the Symposium is a possible suspect. As Maura tries to identify the branding marks on the two victims, Jane seems to think that their could more murders, so Maura and Nolan do psych evaluations on all Law Enforcement that was there that night and one Det. Chuck Fletcher seems to stand out. Frost discovers that Fletcher has 45 complements of excessive force on his his file as well as drug use and then the call comes in to Korsak and Frost that a body was found on campus. When the team arrive Frankie tells Jane that the victim was Fletcher and Maura also discovers the same burn mark as on the other two victims, but this brutal murder was different, Fletcher's ear was cut off and his eyes were damaged and he was gagged, so either Fletcher knew his murderer. This murder was also from Nolan's book and as Jane said Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil. Maura finds out what the burns marks are, apparently the burn mark is the sign for the medical symbol, so the team start looking back into cases related to the branding marks and makes some surprising discoveries. The first murder was a prominent Doctor and his wife, the daughter hid the in the closet and she survived and the name of the family was Appleton. Nolan's assistant Jack Roberts had burned DVD copies of all the interviews Nolan did for her book, Nolan asked Korsak if she can take a look at the murder scene where Fletcher was killed so Korsak takes Nolan, but they never arrive. As it turns out Nolan is the serial killer and Jack is her son, her father repeated sexually abused her as a child and she became pregnant with Jack and in one of the interviews with Hoyt, Jane finds out the truth that Nolan was actually Tori Appleton. At Korsak's residence Nolan and Jack are preparing to torture and murder Korsak and trying to justify why (which makes no sense because these psycho's can justify anything to prove what they're doing is right). Although they don't get very far went Jane, Frost and Frankie turn up and arrest them. Another Fantastic Episode. Thumbs Up. Bittersweet Though For Alot Of People Including Myself When I Found Out On Wednesday That Lee Thompson Young Committed Suicide. So Very Sad, Rest In Peace Lee Thompson Young. You Really Will Be Missed.moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Jane Rizzoli: (referring to her dreams about Hoyt) Do you think it meant something?
      Maura Isles: The science behind dreams isn't well-established.
      Jane Rizzoli: Maura, I just want your opinion. It doesn't have to be peer-reviewed.

    • Dr. Victoria Nolan: During my psychiatric residency, a 5-year-old boy was referred to me for treatment.
      Angela Rizzoli: Why? What happened to him?
      Jane Rizzoli: Ma.
      Angela Rizzoli: I want to know.
      Dr. Victoria Nolan: He'd strangled his puppy.
      Angela Rizzoli: A 5-year-old?
      Jane Rizzoli: Yeah. So, see? Tommy's not so bad after all.
      Angela Rizzoli: Not funny.

    • Maura Isles: Are you having second thoughts?
      Jane Rizzoli: Well, I can't back out now. I mean, Dr. Nolan asked us to do this presentation six months ago. And, yes, I do not enjoy thinking about Hoyt. I mean, serial killers go after complete strangers. How'd I manage to get the one who wanted to get personal?
      Maura Isles: Well, you presented a unique challenge to someone like Charles Hoyt.
      Jane Rizzoli: So you're saying it's a compliment that he tried to kill me?
      Maura Isles: I suppose.
