We’re a little behind in getting this review out for last week’s new episode of “Rizzoli & Isles,” but better late than never, right? This is especially true when you’ve got an episode liked “Scares to Death” that did a good job combining some classic mystery elements with the largest case right now of Jane trying to figure out who is stalking her and trying to ruin her life.
Unfortunately, there was not any particularly great news for her by the end of this episode, given that the only information she really uncovered was information that almost anyone could have seen coming: A hacker was hired, but they were not the responsible party. They were instead carrying out the orders of someone else, and trying to do everything that they could to ensure those orders were met.
Elsewhere, the main case of the week revolved around Fear Club and a shocking murder that happened there. This place is known for producing cheap scares for its patrons, and for some time nobody even noticed seemingly what had happened. Eventually, Jane, Maura, Frankie, and the rest of the team did figure this one out, but not before a few funny moments here and there and a conspiracy that ended up stretching beyond Fear Club into a classic case of revenge, one of the most common murder motives out there. This is far more prevalent as a threat than any of the things that a standard Fear Club will show you.
Before we wrap this up, let’s at least pause for a second and pour some praise on the show for the whole thing with Angela getting the engagement ring stuck on her finger. It was all sorted out and the ring eventually led to having its proper purpose met, but not before we got a good laugh. With all of the other heavy stuff going on, these sort of storylines and certainly welcome. Grade: B+.
