Elementary – The Invisible Hand

Another attempt on his father’s life confirms Sherlock Holmes‘ (Jonny Lee Miller) suspicions that the group responsible is the shadow organization once run by Jamie Moriarty (Natalie Dormer). Although Moriarty does not appear in the episode, in scouring through her possible former lieutenants Holmes and Watson come across mathematics professor Joshua Vikner (Tony Curran) who fits the more classic mold of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original Moriarty. Without incriminating himself, the man admits to Holmes and Watson his connection to Moriarty and her former organization as the episode offers a pair of scenes for the detective and the villain to discuss the situation in which they find themselves.

When Watson‘s (Lucy Liu) inside man turns up dead Morland Holmes (John Noble) becomes Sherlock Holmes‘ (Jonny Lee Miller) prime suspect. After fuming at Watson for keeping such a dangerous secret from him for weeks, Sherlock jumps into the case and, despite what he may wish to be true, quickly proves his father wasn’t behind the hiring of an amateur hitman (Yul Vazquez).

Elementary - Ready or Not?

Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) are hired to look into the disappearance of a doctor by a client whom Sherlock punches in the face almost immediately after taking the case.
