Sherlock’s freedom is now in jeopardy as ELEMENTARY returns for its fourth season. He’s facing criminal charges in the aftermath of his recent violent behavior and relapse, which has seemingly ended his job with the NYPD. But Joan is determined to stick with him no matter what. Although, it seems like Sherlock is desperately trying to hang on to his position with the NYPD and he and Joan work on the case of a missing wife believed to have been killed by her husband to try and get back into the department’s good graces.
But one thing that could throw a wrench in all of their plans — aside from possibly going to prison — is the arrival of Sherlock’s father, Morland Holmes. The man is determined to fix his estranged son’s troubles by any means necessary. It seems that Sherlock’s father wants to see his son restored to his consultancy position at the NYPD, but Sherlock doesn’t seem to think that accepting his father’s help is “worth the cost”. After all, there’s always a cost with his father.
ELEMENTARY returns for an all new season on November 5 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
