We caught up to actress Sasha Alexander when she was judging a cooking competition in which PIX11's Frances Rivera participated. Her show "Rizzoli & Isles" is back on air and she talks about being about mom, extremely organized, and needing time to herself.
As the second season of RIZZOLI & ISLES opens, Jane and Frankie Jr. are each recovering from bullets they took during a siege at the police station. As Jane struggles to overcome scars that are more emotional than physical, an old flame Sergeant Major Charles "Casey" Jones (Chris Vance Dexter, Burn Notice) comes back into her life.
On the homefront, Jane's mother is despondent over a major upheaval in her own life. The situation will be complicated even more by the arrival of Jane's younger brother, Tommy (Colin Egglesfield Something Borrowed, Melrose Place), who was recently released from prison. And for Maura, home life will get complicated when she receives a visit from her adoptive mother, Constance Isles (Jacqueline Bisset Nip/Tuck, Joan of Arc), a brilliant modern artist and art historian.
Jane and Maura will take on a number of intriguing cases this season, including a murder carried out during a Revolutionary War re-enactment, a killing in a professional baseball team's locker room, a complicated case involving a surrogate mother and a case involving the Salem witch trials. Jane will also face the return of serial killer Charles Hoyt (Michael Massee Flash Forward), who takes a special joy in tormenting her.
