‘Rizzoli & Isles’ series finale reaction: Show boss on specific Jane – Maura ending

Tonight, the “Rizzoli & Isles” series finale came and went, and for the most part it feels clear that it can be described in one way and one way only: Emotional. We saw a final case, a farewell party to Jane, but then also a welcome surprise when Jane made the choice to take off with Maura to Paris for a month rather than start her job at Quantico right away.

Was this meant to represent the two parties sticking by each other forever? Not necessarily, but it was meant as a testament to their friendship and the fun that they had together. This is something that showrunner Jan Nash discussed further in a new interview with TVLine:

“We went toward the finale with the idea of showing that these two women are best friends, and no matter what happens in their lives, that will never change. You have these two strong women, these incredibly compelling characters, that have been engaged in this relationship for a very long time, and yet the characters are people who should be allowed to grow, to move forward in their lives. And despite that, when the show goes to black, you can rest assured that these two people will be in each other’s lives forever.”

As for whether or not there could be a TV movie someday about Jane and Maura in Paris, Nash said she’s game — therefore, we’re going to keep holding out hope that something could happen down the road. For now, it’s just a dream scenario that will probably inspire a ton of fanfiction.
