‘Rizzoli & Isles’ Season 3 Episode 5 ‘Throwing Down the Gauntlet’ Preview: It Gets Personal

“Jane looks for a way for Maura to meet her biological mother, Dr. Hope Davis (guest star Sharon Lawrence). Angela gets involved in a political campaign. And a nun from Jane and Frankie Jr.’s past returns.”

The beginning of this season offered quite the amount of information about Maura’s past. Her mother thinks she is dead, so it’s going to be up to Maura to find her and introduce herself. Beginning with this next episode, Sharon Lawrence will be guest starring as Dr. Hope Davis, meaning it’s going to be quite a tough time for her. It’s a good thing Maura and Jane patched things up, because Maura’s going to need her friend during this time.

The Rizzoli & Isles season 3 episode 5 promo for “Throwing Down the Gauntlet” (below) shows that the case they’re working involves a case of mistaken identity. However, what everyone’s wondering about is Maura’s mother. Maura will be doing some online reading about her family—after all, the Chief Medical Examiner being a mob boss’s daughter is big news. Hope and Maura will be coming face to face in this episode, but will everything go as Maura—and likely Jane as well—wants it to?
