Elementary - Over a Barrel television review

It’s rare to see Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) beaten, even if only for an instant. Opening with a montage of a frustrated father’s (Isiah Whitlock Jr.) previous attempts to illicit the assistance of Holmes and Watson (Lucy Liu) into an attack that led to his son’s eventual death, the episode begins in earnest with the man taking a diner full of hostages and giving the detective 16 hours to solve the case. Or else. With Joan as one of the hostages, it falls on Detective Bell (Jon Michael Hill) to work alongside Holmes and help him piece together events from five years ago before time runs out.

Elementary - Crowned Clown, Downtown Brown TV review

The murder of a clown in the woods leads Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) to discover an attempt to poison the New York aquifer with a weaponized virus. Tracing the pathogen back to a virologist who has fled the country, it takes longer for Holmes and Watson (Lucy Liu) to discover the true motive for the crime – old fashioned greed.

Elementary - It Serves You Right to Suffer TV review

The season’s ongoing B-story involving Watson‘s (Lucy Liu) relationship to Shinwell (Nelsan Ellis) comes to a head when he becomes involved in the shooting of a member from a rival gang. Believing his innocence, Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson have only three days to find the person responsible for the crime, explain Shinwell’s involvement, and prevent the man from going back to prison. The investigation leads back to a FBI agent (Dorian Missick) who both Shinwell and the victim were working for as off-the-book informants.

Elementary - How the Sausage Is Made

While investigating a murder involving a one victim killed after eating sausages made from a second murder victim, the trail leads Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) to a cutting edge laboratory where the ground-up victim was working on perfecting a meat substitute. At first Sherlock believes that such a discovery, and its effect on the marketplace, may have gotten the man killed by a meat conglomerate (or “Big Meat” as Holmes takes to saying), however a second, more devious, motive is eventually uncovered.

Elementary - To Catch a Predator Predator

Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) are called in to investigate a murder the detectives believe are tied to the public Internet beatings and shaming of pedophiles. Learning that their victim was the man responsible for creating fake profiles on dating websites and luring pedophiles into admitting their proclivities, the detectives turn their attention on the men who their victim shamed. What they discover is more complicated, however, as one of the men beaten and exposed by their victim was actually innocent. And the true reason for his murder came from an entirely different motive.
