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. While that doesn’t terminate the employment, the search for the missing man (whose wife believes is off on some tryst with a mistress) takes some unusual turns once the detectives discover both his illegal drug trade and his survivalist leanings (including a time share in a luxurious bomb shelter), either of which could provide motive for his murder.

Despite revealing the bunker to be both a sham and the scene where the murder was committed, the true motive for the crime ties back to the doctor’s practice (not his need to survive a nuclear holocaust). Holmes lashing out at their client isn’t the only example of the detective’s short-temper in the episode. Confiding in Watson that he’s struggling in his new relationship with Fiona (Betty Gilpin) we learn she is as well. The two will eventually patch things up but I’m still waiting to see Moriarty’s (Natalie Dormer) reaction to Sherlock’s new girlfriend.
