No More Drama in My Life (Season 3, Episode 15)
Jane faces a heart-wrenching decision. The man she loves is about to risk everything for a chance at a normal life with her. Casey plans to undergo a dangerous operation that could cure his spinal paralysis - or kill him. Is Jane willing to let him take that risk? Does she even have the right to talk him out of the surgery?
Maura too faces her own excruciating decision. Her birth mother, Dr. Hope Martin, had earlier cast Maura out of her life. Now Hope is back and pleading with Maura to make a flesh-and-blood sacrifice. Maura's half-sister Kaylin is dying of kidney failure. Should Maura donate her own kidney to save the life of a half-sister who despises her and wants nothing to do with her?
But these personal crises take a back seat when an investigation into the death of a community theater actor takes a catastrophic turn. Pursuing a lead, Frost ends up trapped inside a collapsed building, along with Tommy and baby T.J. As more and more bodies are pulled from the rubble, Jane and Maura are terrified that they'll recognize the next victims. Tommy and Frost could still be alive inside, but the building's unstable, and time's running out. To save them, Jane and Maura just might have to make the biggest sacrifice of all.
