I want to talk a little bit about Frank Rizzoli, Sr. We had an interesting development come up with him in 414, and, though it could make a compelling story on many levels for many different characters, I have to admit I was a little iffy on whether or not I wanted to see Rizzoli & Isles tackle the topic of alcoholism and the abuse and harm it causes everyone involved.
The reason for my apprehension? How the story line with Casey’s PTSD and his physical disability were handled, which, in my opinion, was not well.
