When ELEMENTARY returns for its fourth season, it’s clear that Sherlock Holmes is concerned about many things. Chief among them are his career and the possibility of jail time. After his recent drug relapse and beat-down of his former drug dealer in the season 3 finale, Sherlock is facing possible prosecution. And his consultancy position with the NYPD is at risk.
But his most primary concern is Joan Watson. He’s prepared to accept the consequences of his actions, but he doesn’t want Joan’s budding detective career to suffer as well. When he gets an opportunity to work what could be “one last case”, he intends to solve it and let Joan take the credit, thereby securing her position with the NYPD. But when Joan learns about his plan she’s not impressed. It’s not about the job for her — it’s about their partnership.
Don’t miss the season premiere of ELEMENTARY on November 5 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
