“Rizzoli & Isles” season 5 finale two-hour special kicks off with a man driving. He tries to secure his parking space when another car cuts him off. He gets off the car and calls the driver an asshole, when he suddenly gets shot.

Jane and Maura arrive at the crime scene. Frankie identifies the victim as Ned Drake. He tells them that eyewitnesses didn’t hear a shot.

Jane and Korsack tries to re-enact what happened. He notices streamers and they see the tree with a perch on it. They conclude that Ned’s death wasn’t an accident. The dogs suddenly pick up on something and they see a den.

Jack visits Maura. He tells her his ex-wife was offered a job in New Mexico. He tells her about the custody and assures her that they can make it work.

Maura tells Korsack about the gunpowder. Frankie enters and tells him there’s another shooting incident.

Frankie identifies the victim as Jeremy Fritz. Korsack tells them that Jeremy survived the shot. Jane sees some movement behind the bushes. The man tries to run off and police were able to catch him. He tries to bite Korsack.

At the station, the man continues to shout and act wild. Maura doesn’t think that the man is acting out. She offers the man a cheeseburger. She notices his hand is hurt. He manages to tell her “hunter” and “gun.” He gets mad when she asks him about his name.

Maura tells Jane that she thinks the man has split personality and believes he’s a werewolf. She thinks they can’t make him a witness because of his mental condition. Frankie isn’t buying it. Maura tells them that he’s been living in a urine-soaked area for two weeks.

Jack visits Maura again. He tells her that he has finally figured out a plan. He tells her that he could work part time.


Frankie tells Korsack that there’s a third similar case at the park. At the scene, Korsack notices the differences in streamers and concludes that Fritz was the suspect’s primary target.

Maura thinks she could calm the “werewolf” down. She examines his hand and wraps it with a bandage. He says he was hungry and the hunter came at night. He says he saw him with the gun twice and he tried to stop him, but the hunter pushed him.

Maura brings the werewolf man to the hospital. She tells Jane that he has a tumor in his brain. When he’s about to get a CT scan, the werewolf man suddenly acts out. Maura sees a man and calls Jane. She runs after the man.

At the stairs, the man tries to attack Maura, but she manages to stab him with the scalpel. He runs away. Jane bumps into him.

At the station, Frankie tells Korsack that the suspect’s name is Wesley Junior. Frankie tells him that his family’s rich and his father always tried to cover up his crimes. He tells Korsack that Wesley was supposed to work for Fritz, but he never worked for anyone in his entire life. He adds that he tried to kill other people to make it look random.

Back at the hospital, Maura tells the werewolf man about the findings. She tells him she was able to trace a missing person’s report and says that his name is Michael. She tells him his family is on their way. He thanks her.

Later on, Maura meets up with Jack. She tells him that she can’t let him miss one moment of his daughter’s life. He concludes that she’s saying goodbye. They hug each other.
