Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles find themselves investigating a death that occurred during the re-enactment of of a Revolutionary War battle organized by a university professor, Dwayne Cravitz. They soon determine that far from being an accident, the shooting was from a sniper who was actually out to kill Cravitz. A DNA sample leads them to believe that the shooter is someone from his past. Maura meanwhile is thrown for a loop when her mother, the rich and beautiful Constance Isles, drops in for an unexpected visit. They have a strained relationship however with Mrs. Isles not quite sure how to be a mother to her daughter and Maura feeling intimidated and reduced to babbling in her presence. Written by

When Korsak concludes that the shooter must have ceased firing because of a stovepipe jam, his reasoning is badly flawed. A stovepipe jam occurs when a shell casing gets stuck in the ejection mechanism and prevents the next round from loading properly. If a damaged shell casing or loaded round was found on the ground, this indicates that the shooter presumably cleared the jam and reloaded the firearm successfully, and therefore must have ceased firing for some other reason.
