Adoption on "Rizzoli & Isles"

Anybody watch Rizzoli and Isles? Not me -- I'm still making it through the backlog on my DVR, and haven't made room for this new series, though it sounds like the sort of thing I'd like. Kind of hate to hear, though, that it recently used adoption as a plot twist, rather as In Plain Sight did a while ago. According to a TV Squad post, medical examiner Maura Isles (who some have observed seems to have Asperger syndrome) gets some DNA info on a murder victim on her table and finds that the DNA matches her own, and the guy is her biological brother.

Unlike In Plain Sight, this isn't a storyline that's going to go away with the case of the week, and I'm not sure whether that's a good thing or a bad thing. TV Squad writer Jason Hughes suggests, "With the series already renewed for a second season, there's plenty of time to unravel the mystery of Isles genetic past, perhaps even tracking down her birth parents and finding out why she was given up for adoption," and ... boy, you know, let's not. If you watch the show, please share any details you have on the plot line and where you'd like to see it go.
