As you may have heard by now, there is no new episode of the show airing tonight on TNT. The reason for that seems to be relatively simple: Fear of losing viewers because of the Olympics.

Next week’s new episode is going to be focused around everything from Ponzi schemes to issues from Maura’s past rising to the surface — and we should have more to say about that in due time.
