See One, Do One, Teach One is the first episode of the first season of the show, Rizzoli & Isles. It first aired on July 12, 2010 and drew 7.55 million viewers. It was written by Janet Tamaro and directed by Michael M. Robin.


New murders echo the M.O. of the Surgeon, a serial killer now behind bars. Is a copycat out there - or has the Surgeon trained an apprentice?


The episode starts as Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles investigate the murder of a husband and wife in their prestigious home, but when the signature leads back to the killer that traumatized Rizzoli, she decides to stay at Isles' house until the killer is found. The next day, Rizzoli is told that the murderer has escaped from a hospital before starting surgery. That night Rizzoli gets a call that some one has ransacked her apartment. When she gets there, a person dressed as a coroner lures her into his van, a man comes out of a body bag in the van and stuns her, then the first man injects her with a solution. She wakes up with her hands, and feet tied. Later, she escapes and kills the first man and gets revenge on the second.
