This is what Rizzoli & Isles Season 5 Episode 2 was for both the characters and the audience: a good cry, as I know I couldn't hold back the tears at the funeral.
Most fans knew this day was coming after the tragic death of actor Lee Thompson Young last fall. Of course, knowing this episode would arrive didn't make it any easier to watch.
I appreciated how each of the characters was allowed to deal with their grief in his/her own way. Barry's mother asking his friends to help plan the funeral was a wonderful idea.
As anyone who has had to plan a loved one's funeral knows, the process can be completely overwhelming and this gave each of his partners a chance to help and have something to focus on.
