‘Rizzoli & Isles’ Season 3 Episode 10 ‘Melt My Heart to Stone’ Preview: Summer Finale

Rizzoli & Isles season 3 continues on August 14 with episode 10, “Melt My Heart to Stone.” It’s the summer finale, and several familiar faces will be returning. But will it end with a heart-stopping cliffhanger?

R&I Season 3 Episode 10 “Melt My Heart to Stone” Promo

“When a statue breaks open to reveal a dead woman inside, Jane and Maura must find the killer quickly as the body count begins to rise. Back at headquarters, a new homicide detective is named to the squad. Meanwhile, Dennis Rockmond (guest star Eddie Cibrian) returns to Boston after disappearing on Maura and tries to woo her back. Lydia goes into labor. Colin Egglesfield, Daniella Alonso and Alexandra Holden also guest-star.”

The last episode, “Hometown Glory,” saw the Rizzolis have a tough time since they knew the victim—he and Frankie were friends—but will everyone be having a tough time after the summer finale? With Lydia and Tommy returning, the drama isn’t over yet for the Rizzolis and that complicated mess. Also returning is Riley, Jane’s drug dealer neighbor who had been dating both Frost and Frankie. How is she going to factor into the final case of the summer? Then there’s Dennis returning as well. Will Maura let him in? What will he have to say about why he disappeared?

The Rizzoli & Isles season 3 episode 10 promo for “Melt My Heart to Stone” (below) shows them at the crime scene, and Maura says there’s definitely a body inside the statue. This is going to be a strange case, but they’re on a deadline. That explains why that suspect isn’t exactly getting the friendly treatment when he’s pushed into a chair in interrogation.

Meanwhile, it looks like Jane will warm up to pregnant Lydia once she gives birth, if the image of her holding the baby is anything to go by. But will Lydia have a paternity test done? Could Tommy insist on knowing if the baby is his since he is back in this episode?

Finally, the promo ends with a moment that leaves you guessing. Jane’s reading something that makes her go “Oh no. Maura,” something you never want to hear on a drama like this. While Jane’s saying into her phone, “Meet me outside now!” Maura’s surprised by someone who joins her in the morgue. Is this the killer? Could it be Dennis? He is a bit mysterious, and it’s not like something like that has never happened on a series before. However, because it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if that were the case, perhaps it won’t. Perhaps this scene doesn’t even have anything to do with Jane’s scenes and the promo has just been cut to make it seem like it does. Whatever does happen, the voiceover for the promo is certainly ominous: “After this episode, nothing in their lives will ever be the same.”

What do you think of the Rizzoli & Isles season 3 episode 10 preview of the summer finale, “Melt My Heart to Stone”?
