‘Lincoln Rhyme’ is about midway by its first season and there’s nonetheless lots we don’t learn about Kate. HL spoke EXCLUSIVELY Brooke Lyons about Kate’s massive episode, Kate and Amelia teaming up, and extra.
Kate is a crucial member of Lincoln Rhyme’s staff and she or he’s the one you may rely on for those who want details. The Feb. 7 episode of Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector will give attention to a weird homicide at a college analysis web site that throws Amelia and Kate into the world of autopsy forensics. This results in one wild journey at a physique farm of all locations. “We are called upon to visit one of those,” Brooke Lyons instructed HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “Everybody else is a little bit taken aback by the concept, but Kate jumps at it because this is her comfort zone. She’s trained in it. She loves it. There’s nothing sinister or perverse about her obsession but she’s fascinated.”
This is the primary time that Amelia and Kate have actually teamed up one-on-one this season. For Brooke, having these two ladies work collectively is one thing she relishes. “Something I love to see on screen and in life everywhere is women working together,” she continued. “I think historically, in onscreen representations of female relationships, you see elements of comparison, even competition. For me, that’s interesting when it is of use but it’s becoming obsolete. I’m just not interested in that anymore. Probably what I love most about their relationship is that it’s not that at all. They’re these two brilliant women, both really good at what they do, who are developing parlance to solve these crimes together, and they’ve got each other’s backs. They both bring different and equally important skill sets to the table. Kate is very science-minded. She’s very fact-based. She really needs to dot the I’s and cross the T’s. She’s using the data to either confirm or deny these theories. Amelia started off as a rookie cop but has these sort of very advanced and special instincts. She’s just got this sixth sense about profiling and the way things are unfolding. She just trusts her gut and that is her greatest strength so we put those together. It’s an excellent team.”
In the primary episode, Kate and Felix are introduced in to assist Lincoln after working collectively years earlier. Brooke mentioned that we’ll be taught in “bits and pieces” about how Kate and Lincoln got here to work collectively within the first place. “Lincoln has a very strong personality,” Brooke mentioned. “He’s not necessarily the easiest person to work with because he’s so brilliant. We work with him. We love working with him. But in the three and a half years that he’s been in retirement, so to speak, Kate and Felix both have evolved and worked in the private sector. When they come back, as you can see in the pilot, they have new ground rules. So we’re renegotiating the relationship with Lincoln. But it’s interesting once you’ve renegotiated a relationship to see what parts of your past keep popping up, right?”
Even although Kate is investigating horrific crimes and the Bone Collector continues to be on the unfastened, Brooke doesn’t suppose Kate fears her job in any manner. “In my mind, she doesn’t think about that, Brooke said. “Not that it hasn’t occurred to her. But her mind works in a very scientific way. She’s about facts. She’s about precision. It’s different from say, Amelia, who is driven heavily by instinct. It’s why Kate gets along so well with Lincoln because they’re both obsessively fact-driven. I think there’s an element of self-preservation in there as well, whether you’re a forensic scientist, NYPD, doctor, or firefighter. In certain professions, you have to detach a little bit in order to do your job, otherwise, it would just be too much.”
At the core of the present is the hunt for the Bone Collector. Brooke couldn’t say a lot about what occurs within the coming episodes concerning that search however did tease: “The relationship between Lincoln and the Bone Collector will reach a climax. I won’t say how it ends. But it builds over the course of the season. We just finished shooting the finale and it’s very scary, very climactic episode.” Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector airs Fridays at eight p.m. on NBC.
