Old flames can smolder and, sometimes, throw off dangerous sparks. That’s what Angie Harmon’s “Rizzoli & Isles” character, Jane Rizzoli, is about to discover when a former colleague and love interest returns to the Boston Police Department Tuesday night as the new head of the BPD’s drug unit.
The old flame, played by head-turning guest star Amaury Nolasco, is Lt. Detective Rafael Martinez. Martinez is someone Rizzoli can’t ignore because she needs him to do her job. “They definitely had some turmoil in the past,” says Nolasco, best known for playing inmate Fernando Sucre on Fox’s “Prison Break.” Now, he’s going to cause Rizzoli to come undone. “I’m the guy who’s shaking things up, causing turmoil, bringing up a lot of painful stuff.”
