The actor who plays Detective Frost shot himself in the head back in August. An article in the Daily News revealed that Lee, 29, had suffered from bipolar disorder and had been taken medication for it. There was traces of Lithium and Quetiapine Fumarate detected in his blood, but no alcohol or drugs in his system.
In the beginning of the premiere when a police officer was asking for Frost, all that was said was that he was on vacation and would be back tomorrow, leaving you wondering, how would we be saying goodbye to Detective Frost.
It wasn’t till the end and the look on Korsak’s face that said Frost was gone and that Rizzoli and Isles would never be the same.
Frost may not be in the title, but he’s a big part of the show and it will be sad to not have his character anymore. Lee was a good actor and he will be missed.
Another reason why the show will not be the same anymore is because Jane is pregnant. What she decides to do is not clear yet. She broke up with Casey at the end of season four because he wanted to continue working in the army and she wanted to continue being a detective, but now there is a baby.
Jane’s hormones are going crazy and for her first case since she found out, she had to deal with a missing baby. By the looks of her interaction with the baby, Brian, that she rescued, she may decide to keep the baby. But what does that mean for being a cop?
Check out the preview for next week. We will get to say our goodbyes to Detective Frost:
