Rizzoli & Isles season 3 is getting ready to introduce Hope, Maura's biological mother, and it kicked off with the premiere dropping clues about her. So what can fans expect from this storyline?
R&I Season 3 Spoilers
Episode synopses out already reveal that Sharon Lawrence will be appearing in episode 5, "Throwing Down the Gauntlet," and episode 6, "Money Maker." In the first one, Jane's going to be trying to figure out how Maura can meet Dr. Hope Davis, while in the second, Maura will be making "a deeper connection" not only with Hope but also with her half-sister. To make it more complicated, her half-sister's not going to know who Maura really is in relation to them.
Sasha Alexander talked to TVLine about this storyline, and she revealed, "It's not until Episode 5 (airing July 3) that Maura decides that the curiosity is killing her, and she really wants to find her biological mother." She went on to describe this storyline as "very interesting" and "a nice mystery" since Constance, the woman who adopted Maura, "did know her. It was all a bit of a secret to basically protect my life, because Paddy Doyle's parents were not good people." This is a storyline that will stretch over multiple episodes in Rizzoli & Isles season 3, which should end up being good as it plays out. With Lawrence playing Hope and the addition of a half-sister, this could end up being a strong arc for Maura which could give Sasha Alexander the chance to shine. How long will Maura and Hope keep it a secret from the half-sister who she really is?
