The Rig Miniseries - Episode 5

Filming started on 29 March 2021, at an oil rig in Scotland, and at FirstStage Studios in Edinburgh.[10][11][7] The series is the first Amazon Original to be filmed entirely in Scotland.[7] Filming wrapped in August 2021.[2][12][13] The first three episodes were directed by John Strickland, and the final three were directed by Alex Holmes.[5]

The official trailer was released on 29 November 2022.[6] The pilot episode premiered at Everyman cinema in Leith, Scotland, on 6 December 2022.[15] The six-episode series was released on 6 January 2023.[6]

As the first episode begins, we get the lay of the land with some of the personalities onboard the rig. Shortly after that, we meet Magnus, who is on the phone trying to get their marching orders as they get ready to head to the mainland. However, in the middle of the conversation, the call connection drops, and he misses the final things trying to be said. Magnus informs the crew that their arrival home has been delayed a bit and that they will have to stay on the rig for a little longer.

Rigsby often works with Kimball Cho and Grace Van Pelt. He and Cho do the interrogations, along with stakeouts. He is, however, most often paired with Cho to go out in the field. He is also his best friend. In season 2 episode 8, "His Red Right Hand", we learn that him and Cho (Chigsby) have been nicknamed "Bert and Ernie" by Bosco and his team. With Rigsby being Bert and Cho being Ernie.

In episode 16, "Bloodshot". Rigsby is jealous of a man that Grace is seen kissing. He is upset but wants her to be happy, so he merely warns him not to hurt Grace. The man, Dan Hollenbeck, then tries to kill Rigsby in the bathroom. At the end of the episode, after Hollenbeck is taken down, Grace runs into the washroom to find Rigsby receiving assistance from an EMT. Relieved that he is all right, she embraces him and apologizes. In the heat of the moment, they almost share a kiss but are interrupted by a janitor. The moment has passed and the awkwardness returns.

In episode 18, "Russet Potatoes", Rigsby is hypnotized and Jane tells him to close his eyes and think about what he most wants to be doing right now. Jane tells him to open his eyes and do it. Rigsby laughs. Grace starts to walk away, but Rigsby grabs her and kisses her deeply. She lets him. She then demands Rigsby be unhypnotized. Then he says he has to leave and won't listen to anyone who tells him to stay, except for Grace.

In the next episode, "Black Gold and Red Blood", Grace and Rigsby seem to be dating and greet each other happily at a crime scene; however, Rigsby reveals to her that he thinks that Jane may know about their relationship.

Later, in episode 7, "Red Bulls", he and Grace argue about him not wearing a bulletproof vest to canvass an apartment building. Grace is then shot multiple times in the chest while questioning a young woman but survives with a bulletproof vest on. While she is loaded onto an ambulance, Rigsby states he loves her. She slaps Rigsby, telling him he should wear a bulletproof vest next time.

In episode 12, Bleeding Heart, they decide to go public, revealing their relationship to the whole team. Cho said that he'd known all along and that their relationship was more or less an open secret at CBI -- "Half the building knows," Cho said. Jane added, "The only person who didn't know is glaring at you right now," referring to Lisbon.

In episode 13, "Redline", Lisbon changes her mind about taking action. She decides to allow them to hide the relationship and deny that she knew anything about it. She tells them both that they shouldn't stare at each other, hold hands, or kiss on the job. Surprisingly, the two take it surprisingly well and accept the restrictions without complaint. Unknown to Lisbon, this trial has stretched their relationship thin, and Rigsby and Grace are at risk of breaking up.

In the third season, Van Pelt dates FBI agent Craig O'Laughlin, much to Rigsby's displeasure. He still has some feelings for her, but they have been able to re-establish a professional working relationship. Grace and O'laughlin get engaged in episode 14 "Blood for Blood" which upsets Rigsby greatly.

In Season Four, Rigsby is dating a public defender, Sarah Harrigan, whom he first met in the Season Three episode Every Rose Has Its Thorn. In episode 12, "My Bloody Valentine," Sarah reveals that she is pregnant.

In episode 15, "War of the Roses", Rigsby and Sarah start preparing for their impending parenthood. They attend their first Lamaze childbirth class, and Rigsby gets a little queasy and awkward after watching videos of childbirth. He later proposes to Sarah in one of the CBI conference rooms, but she says she doesn't want him to propose to her just because she is pregnant. She also says that Rigsby would be a great father, but they were not ready for marriage yet. In episode 20, Something's Rotten in Redmund, Sarah gives birth to a baby boy named Benjamin off-screen.

In Season Five, it is unclear whether Rigsby is still with Sarah. At the beginning of episode 4, Blood Feud, Rigsby is at his apartment with Ben when officers come to arrest him. La Roche reappears and tells him that if he feels Rigsby is lying to him he could go down for murder. Rigsby's father was found to have been in the vehicle with a murder victim and was hit. Even after surgery there was still a bullet pellet lodged close to his heart and he would have to give up his vices (drinking, smoking, strenuous activity) in order to live. Instead, his father leaves against medical advice and goes to a bar to have a drink. Rigsby goes to join him and they have a conversation where he shows him a picture of Ben and then reveals that he and Sarah have broken up due to the events that happened in the season 4 finale. This is shown to be the last conversation that Rigsby has with his father, as when his father stands up, he collapses and dies in his arms. When Rigsby returns to work Grace gives him a hug, and Cho and Jane tell him not to go after the person responsible for his father's death as Ben should not have to have a father in prison like he did. Ultimately, Rigsby does get to kill the man responsible. At the end of the episode, LaRoche finishes his report. He tells Jane and Lisbon that the report will say that Rigsby acted appropriately and is cleared. But he knows that Jane arranged an act of legal revenge for Rigsby; it just can't be proven. LaRoche tells Lisbon that she was wrong to call Rigsby, but Jane takes the responsibility. The episode ends with Rigsby at home, cradling his son while in tears.

Throughout the season the audience becomes aware that his feelings for Van Pelt are still there. In episode 14, "Red in Tooth and Claw" Grace leaves to go to a computer-intensive course in L.A. Throughout her leave, Rigsby is shown to still have very strong feelings for her. Cho, however, comments that she is very much over him and has been for years. Cho encourages him to go on dating sites.

In episode 15, "Red Lacquer Nail Polish", Rigsby is trying to get over Grace and so he is spending a lot of time on the dating websites. Cho tells him that he needs to pay some attention to work. Cho points out at an arrest warrant that is lying on the desk, unnoticed by Rigsby. Later on, Cho approaches him and tells him there are multiple complaints of a man on a dating website claiming to be a CBI agent and then never showing up to the dates. Rigsby goes to talk to the women, of which there are five, and we see that they all resemble Grace.

In episode 19, "Red Letter Day", he buys Grace a welcome back Orchid. Lisbon, Jane, and Cho all comment on him buying it for her, guessing it without him saying anything. Rigsby tells Cho the ball is now in her court. At the end of the episode, Rigsby is about to tell her how he feels when someone she met at the conference shows up to take her out on a date.

In episode 20, "Red Velvet Cupcakes", Rigsby admits to feeling weird since she's been back and that he thought about her while she was gone. During the episode, she and Rigsby pose as a couple with relationship issues for a radio show. On the show, they actually talk about their real issues and she admits that she likes who he is now and that he is a dad. And he admits that he feels the same way about her that he's always felt since the day he met her. At the end of the episode, Grace shows up at his place and starts kissing him. Their relationship has continued since.

In episode 3, "Wedding in Red", she and Rigsby wake up and we get to see Grace having a good relationship with Benjamin. They discuss the fact that the policy of dating within the office has changed and they are now allowed to date publicly. Grace also mentions that this means office couples could even get married. Throughout the episode, Rigsby realizes that she wants to get married and determines whether or not he wants to marry her. Grace later admits in an interview that she holds onto the wedding dress she bought for her wedding to O'laughlin in order to hold onto hope; which Rigsby overhears. To create a distraction in order to catch the killer, Rigsby proposes while talking about hope and Grace happily says yes. The last scene of the episode is their wedding; Grace wears the dress, Lisbon and Cho witness, and Jane looks on from behind a door, crying.

In episodes 12 and 13 he and the team deal with their phones being bugged and someone coming after and murdering former CBI agents. Grace and Rigsby help out by looking into the bugs on the technical side and coordinating with LaRoche and Ardiles (both of whom are later murdered) to help figure out what is going on. During this time Rigsby is anxious to get back out into the field. It is clear that he misses being an agent. 041b061a72
