It was a very emotional goodbye for Detective Frost and no one wanted to say goodbye. They had lost a partner and a friend and we have lost a character we loved.
His absence was felt in this episode, which I’m sure it will be for many more. Frost is no longer there to make us laugh or deal with the technology side of the case. He’s just gone.
Lee Thompson Young was a big draw for me when I started to watch ‘Rizzoli and Isles’. I loved him in ‘The Famous Jett Jackson’ and he was great as Detective Frost. He’s been a big part of the show since the beginning. Jane and Maura may be at the center, but there are a lot of great supporting actors around them, and Lee was one of them.
So where does the show go from here after losing such a great character? The writers did well giving Lee a good send off. I wasn’t sure how they were going to handle his exit from the show. I think the funeral and the preparations for the funeral was done very well. They all had difficulties with their parts because no one wanted to say goodbye. It was a very nice eulogy that Jane gave him and it almost felt it was for the actor as well as the character. And the postcard at the end was a nice touch. It was nice to have something from Frost in this season when we know we will never see him again.
I’m sure most of the characters wish they could have blocked out the memory like Jessica Doe, aka Lily Green, did. She went through a horrible ordeal and her mind made her forget. It wasn’t an easy case to solve, especially since they didn’t believe the girl really had amnesia. But they worked the case and the truth unraveled and Lily finally got her memory back, though she didn’t want to remember it.
Check out the preview for next week. Jane may not be able to keep her pregnancy secret for long:
