Sherlock is going to be getting an offer from his father in this week’s ELEMENTARY.
When Morland offers to reinstate Sherlock to his consultancy position with the NYPD, Sherlock is miffed. Primarily because he doesn’t believe his father is charitable towards him. But he agrees to discuss the possibility with Joan. And he does, telling her that Morland is more than capable of doing as he promised, despite whatever orders came down from the NYPD brass. He also gives her a hint about his father’s job: “Father’s business exists to grease the skids so that politicians and corporations can operate around the globe. Sometimes these are noble ventures, more often they are not.”
But Sherlock is insistent that there will be a price associated with this offer — with his father there’s always a price. And yet, when Joan goes to meet with Morland he is still insistent that he’s doing this “free of charge”. Can he be trusted?
Elsewhere in the episode, Joan and Sherlock take a consulting offer from the FBI to prove their worth since no other job offers were coming in. But Sherlock finds working with this new agency to be unfulfilling and frustrating. Will this convince him to take his father’s offer?
