My Weekend Gayzzoli

So we begin as we ended. With Jane and Maura in bed and in love. My final “Rizzoli & Isles” Subtext Recap is up on AfterEllen today. I’ve spent seven years writing about this sometimes silly, sometimes wonderful, sometimes frustrating show in all its subtext glory. Why? Because the chemistry demanded it, and because it was damn fun. Being involved in the Rizzles fandom has been a true honor and a privilege. Sure, many people scoff at subtext. But I think for any underrepresented group – no matter how our visibility improves – subtext is an acknowledgment that we will always try to bend the world more to our image and our liking. It doesn’t mean we’re settling, it means we will always dreaming of more. Thanks for reading all this time. Thanks for believing and laughing and loving these women with me. Happy weekend and end of Gayzzoli, all.

p.s. You can read the final recap, and the entire seven-season run, here.

I will miss my beloved Rizzles so much , but more than that I will really , really miss your subtext recaps. I do not think you realise how much joy it brought to so many of us. So this thank you comes with hugs and kisses all the way from South Africa.

Helena nailed it, and of course you did too. Episode after episode, for seven years. Thank you for each and every word!

I really don't think I can say it any better than Helena did! I started watching this show my freshman year of High School and I am now a Freshman in college, wow! This show and your recaps got me through high school and now I don't know what to do, guess I'll have to watch some more SVU. Your recaps were always so funny and just plain amazing, thank you so much!! Much love from Ohio.

Thanks for all your hard work. It was often better than the show itself!
