rizzoli isles season 5 finale burden of proof 'Rizzoli & Isles' summer finale: Jane jumps off a bridge to save a man's life“Rizzoli & Isles” went out with a thrilling case in the Season 5 finale, with “Battlestar Galactica” alum Jamie Bamber at the forefront as suspicious prosecutor Paul Wescourt and “West Wing” alum Karis Campbell as his wife, Carol.

When Wescourt’s girlfriend is found murdered in the style of a killer he put away months ago, Rizzoli and Korsak are hot on his trail, but it turns out Wescourt was framed for Danielle’s murder. When he decides to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge, Rizzoli talks him down only to have him slip as he’s going to come back over the rail and fall into the river below.

Because she can’t let him die on her watch, Rizzoli jumps in after him as Maura stands screaming on the bridge. To be continued …

We can’t imagine they’d kill off the title character, so we suspect Rizzoli will survive the fall. But we’ll have to wait to find out when Season 5 returns in early 2015. Who do you think framed Paul? Do you think it was maybe his wife?
