The woman was strangled and when they find a second woman strangled the same way, they know they have a serial killer. To make matters worse, the women have the same names as two of the Boston Strangler's victims. Korsak thinks the Strangler may be out there and killing again. A retired detective who worked on the original case, Kenny Leahy, never believed they had the right man in the 1960s and gives Jane his personal file on the case. The squad gets a new Lieutenant in Joey Grant who Rizzoli has hated since primary school. The feeling is mutual. When Grant moves to make an arrest in the case however, Jane is the one who figures out exactly what is going on. Maura meanwhile goes out on a date but she can't help but diagnose the man.
