Jane Rizzoli finally makes her intentions known (and Mama Rizzoli seems to approve lol)
So, TNT… How’s this working out for yah?
this is the best image on the internet
If Rizzoli and Isles ends up with Jane and Maura finding husbands and getting married in order to feel ‘validated’ or ‘complete’, the show will have successfully proved nothing of the heroism, female empowerment, and independence that is so acclaimed within the main characters.
- The show is set in Boston, where same-sex marriage is legal.
- Their passionate friendship borders the line of a romantic relationship (personal side note, one of them is in love)
- Most, if not all partners in the show have experienced hardship due to their line of police work: Jane and Maura already know and understand the complications and stresses that are a part of the job and they respect them.
- They are always together, when would they have time to date and have another life outside of work?
- They are soulmates:
- There is no male character that would complement either of them. Why do you think Maura is attracted to Italians until intimacy is a factor.
- There is so much subtext I could write a dissertation about it, per episode!
- Maura has gone above and beyond the loyalty of friendship for the Rizzoli family.
- Jane is virile, strong, determined, intuitive, and compassionate while Maura is effeminate, precise, kind, adorably awkward and logical.
I dare them to break societal norms. For once, someone stand up for humanity.
I’ll be waiting. We’ll be waiting.
