Although at first all evidence points to a local cab driver as the most likely killer, Holmes quickly eliminates that possibility and begins investigating a Big Brother program known as Zoos whose users gladly allow the company to track their whereabouts not realizing how such information could be put to use in the wrong hands.

Elementary - The One that Got Away

Although Kitty‘s (Ophelia Lovibond) attacker stands revealed there is little to evidence other than her word to tie the man (Stuart Townsend) to a series of kidnappings, tortures, and murders of young women in both New York and London. It doesn’t help that Gruner expertly plans Watson (Lucy Liu) and the NYPD by firing his new investigator before he is questioned by the police making it appear, at least from the outside, as if the accusation is nothing but a slanderous reprisal. Returning to the themes of vengeance used in the First Season episode “M,” “The One that Got Away” bring Kitty face-to-face with her abuser offering her the same opportunity that Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) ultimately walked away from.
