Last week there were a lot of ‘Scooby Do’ references and this week Jane started referencing ‘Downton Abby’ right from the start. I think pregnancy is making Jane more light hearted, which isn’t a bad thing with the intense cases she works on.
While murder is always sad for the victim, I think this victim’s death was even sadder. She wanted to die, she wanted to be put out of her misery from dying of cancer, but she wanted to go peacefully, not painfully. And with a rich family there are a lot of suspects that pile up after a murder. Of course the go to motive was money, but in the end it was much more personal than money. In a way you could say it was for pay back.
Jane is a very independent woman, but this season Jane already admitted she needs Maura’s help. Why can’t she admit she needs her mother’s help? Maura may be a doctor and can keep Jane right when it comes to carrying a healthy baby and everything medical, but her mother has had three kids and that’s a lot of experience Jane can’t ignore. While Angela may have relied on Frank Sr. for financial things, she was the one who raised her three kids and Jane can learn a lot from her, she did raise two detectives after all.
Did Maura just find her male double? He’s quirky just like she is, but he’s probably not as smart, but he may come close. As scary as her past love interests have been, I think this guy is worth the risk. She hasn’t found anyone who is anywhere near compatible with her yet, but this guy seems to be a good match.
It’s nice that even five episodes in, we are still remembering Frost and feeling the difficulty that the characters are going through. It may only be an empty chair, but the empty chair represents a lot. Their friend and partner is gone and their team is not whole.
Check out the preview for next week. Their case has something to do with a watermelon:
