Rizzoli and Isles Season 5 Recap: Foot Loose
“Rizzoli & Isles” Season 5 Episode 14 “Foot Loose” aired on Feb. 24, 2015 on TNT. The episode starts with a guy and a girl getting cozy on the beach. The guy decides to take a plunge and finds a floating sneaker. He throws the sneaker at his girlfriend, only to be surprised when he hears his girlfriend screaming. His girlfriend sees a foot stuck inside the shoe.
In the meantime, Jane and Maura are chilling out at Korsack’s bar with Angela. Angela tells them that she’s having a hard time finding a job when their phones ring at the same time. Someone tells them about the incident at the beach, and they leave immediately.
Upon arrival at the crime scene, Jane, Maura and Korsack discuss what might have happened. Korsack thinks it’s only a drunk sailor that fell off the boat, and his foot was bitten off by a fish. Maura tells them that ocean water can cause body parts to erode because of the high salt content in the water.
Back at the lab, Maura tells Korsack that their suspicions were wrong; the foot was sawed off the body, and it has been in the ocean for less than 24 hours.
Frankie and Nina are looking at previous cases of body parts dumped in the ocean for the past 10 years. Korsack tells them that a torso was found on the beach. Korsack, Jane and Maura arrive at the beach. A news team arrives and asks them if there is a serial killer on the loose. Jane figures out that someone from the department is leaking their information.
While examining the recovered torso at the lab, Maura shouts at Jane and tells her that she smells almonds, which means that there is cyanide in the body. The lab is closed until traces of cyanide have been removed. Maura receives an email confirming that the victim died of cyanide poisoning.
Maura goes back to work and Jane tells her that the foot and torso do not match, which means that there are two victims. They find out that the torso belongs to a missing man named Richard O’Connell.
Nina finds out where the leak is coming from. Jane heads to their sketch artist, Jim’s office to confront him about the leak. Jim simply tells her that he was only discussing work with his cousin.
Korsack breaks the news about Richard to his parents. They tell him that he was an avid swimmer with a spinal degenerating disease. They reveal that Richard met a man named Mark Murray who claimed that he can heal him.
Jane, Maura, and Korsack arrive at Mark Murray’s office only to see blood on the floor and a bloody saw. Korsack runs through his computer and sees a man named Russ Pfeiffer on his appointment book. They contact Russ only to hear that he has never been to Mark’s office. He revealed that he met Mark’s assistant, who claimed that Mark was a healer who cured his cancer.
They run through some information and found out that his assistant was a man named Bob Burke. They arrive at Bob’s home only to see the paramedics saving him. Jane tries to ask Bob about Mark, and she smells almonds. The paramedics clear the area.
Jane arrives at the hospital to ask Bob about Mark. He tells her that he used to think Mark was a genius, but when two of his patients didn’t respond to his therapy, Mark tried to kill them and poured cyanide on his throat so that he couldn’t tell anyone about his failure.
Maura becomes suspicious of Bob, so she runs a test on his vomitus. She finds out that he did not have cyanide poisoning, and calls Jane to tell her that they have been played.
Jane and Korsack go back to Mark’s office. They find the other pair of shoe that matches the one they found at the beach. Frankie rushes to the hospital only to see that Bob was no longer there. Jane and Korsack rush to the hospital and find Bob at the parking lot. Jane arrests him.
