ELEMENTARY Season 5 Premiere Sneak Peek: Watson Reaches Out to an Old Patient


A serial bomber becomes active again when ELEMENTARY returns for its fifth season this week and this leads to a new character joining the cast.

The reappearance of this bomber leads Watson to reach out to Shinwell Johnson, a former patient whose life she saved when she was a surgeon. Shinwell is surprised to learn she’s no longer practicing medicine, but Watson is primarily interested in learning more about an old fellow patient of Shinwell’s who may be connected to this crime. Shinwell is down on his luck now, but he’s happy to be alive. When Joan hands him her card he wants to know how she changed her life so that he can learn from her. He’s also connected to the underworld of crime, which could actually be helpful to Sherlock and Watson. Unless, of course, it’s all a ruse and he can’t be trusted at all.

Meanwhile, Sherlock points out that Joan is coming up on her five year anniversary of becoming a detective, but he starts to sense that she’s unhappy and questions whether her life is actually being fulfilled by her detective career.

ELEMENTARY Sneak Peeks: A Connection Between Morland, Sherlock and Joan


We’ve arrived at the penultimate episode of the season for ELEMENTARY and Moriarty has apparently become a problem again. Or, at least, that’s what Sherlock thought in the last episode.

Now, according to a clip from tonight’s episode, Sherlock has ruled out Jamie Moriarty as the suspect who is targeting Morland. Instead, he believes that someone else has taken over Moriarty’s network and is targeting the Holmes family. When Sherlock and Joan figure out who is made the attempt on Morland’s life, they “find a shocking connection to themselves” as well.

ELEMENTARY Sneak Peek: Is Morland a Murder Suspect?


ELEMENTARY fans have seen how sketchy Morland Holmes is since his introduction this season. He’s definitely engaged in some questionable business practices to achieve his goals. But is he actually a murderer? That question is going to come up this week.

Sherlock and Joan get called to the crime scene that Marcus discovered last week and Joan is clearly thrown that her source in Morland’s office — Emile Kurtz — has been murdered. Sherlock and Marcus don’t seem aware of her connection to the victim, but her questions at the crime scene pique Sherlock’s interest. And soon enough, Morland becomes Sherlock and Joan’s prime suspect in the murder investigation.

ELEMENTARY Sneak Peeks: Staging a Murder


Joan and Sherlock investigate a fake murder that turned into the real thing on this week’s ELEMENTARY.

First, Joan is shocked to wake up to a hairless cat in the brownstone. Sherlock announces that it was intended as a birthday gift for Fiona, but apparently the cat didn’t like her very much. Fortunately for Joan’s sanity, Mrs. Hudson has volunteered to adopt the animal.

Eventually the pair are called out to a crime scene featuring a double-homicide and both Sherlock and Detective Bell notice how odd the scene looks. We later learn that the victims were staging a fake murder right at the moment they were actually killed.

Finally, Joan’s inside man at Morland’s office runs into a problem that threatens to expose her spying to both Sherlock and his father.

ELEMENTARY Teasers: The High-Stakes World of Illegal Poker


Sherlock and Joan get embroiled in the world of illegal poker games in this week’s ELEMENTARY.

Family Connection. A woman named Lin gets shot in her apartment and runs to Sherlock for help. She tells him that she’s a realtor and knows about him because she worked with Mycroft while he was in New York. Sherlock wants to know why they shouldn’t continue this discussion at the police station and she tells him the truth about her side job: she organizes illegal poker games. And one of her recent high-roller games was interrupted by a robbery by two guys in masks. Now she thinks that someone is framing her and so Sherlock heads to her apartment to gather her phone, which contains evidence on her players.

Delving in to a Shady World. As Sherlock meets Lin’s dealer while at Lin’s apartment, he tries to find out more about the two men who interrupted the poker game. One of the other players think that Lin robbed her own game, but Sherlock is convinced she’s being framed. And when Lin’s lookout for the event turns up dead, that changes the game and the police are brought into the situation. They uncover surveillance of the game and cheating and the situation becomes even more complicated, particularly when the NSA gets involved and orders them to stop their investigation.

Suspicions. But Joan thinks there’s something off about their new client — after all, she was close enough to Mycroft that she believes he would have told her about engaging Lin to find new locations for his restaurant. Sherlock thinks that it probably didn’t come up, but Joan can’t let her suspicions go and she starts covertly questioning Lin about her business to try and trip her up. She learns something about Lin that makes her question what she knew about Mycroft…and it turns out that what’s happening here has a far more personal connection to Joan than she suspected.

A Second Case. CBS will also be airing a second all new episode of ELEMENTARY this week. In it, Sherlock and Joan investigate a woman’s murder and discover that her death was linked to some artwork that has ties to a crime that was committed while she was in college.

Don’t miss a two-hour block of ELEMENTARY tonight (April 10) beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS (U.S.) and Global TV (Canada).

ELEMENTARY Sneak Peeks: Searching for a Survivalist


Sherlock’s relationship with Fiona continues on ELEMENTARY, but he starts exhibiting odd behavior when the relationship hits a critical point in tonight’s episode.

Sherlock and Joan will also be getting a visit from a potential client and it’s someone they know. In fact, it’s someone whose business partners they recently put behind bars. He brings a case to their attention because a survivalist doctor (who specialized in pain management) has gone missing and his son — who was a patient of the doctor — is a person of interest in the investigation. During the initial meeting about the case, Joan takes the boy out of the room and Sherlock confronts Mr. Springer, deducing that his son’s chronic pain came about because Springer was abusing the boy. But he also agrees to take on the case.

Also, in case you missed the news, ELEMENTARY has been recently renewed for a fifth season, along with a slew of other CBS shows.

ELEMENTARY Sneak Peek: Hero Down


A real life superhero will be killed on an all new episode of ELEMENTARY, airing on a special night due to the recent NCAA basketball championship.

In “You’ve Got Me, Who’s Got You?”, Marcus asks for Joan and Sherlock’s help to solve a murder involving a man who secretly fought crime while dressed as a popular comic book superhero. Apparently, the “Midnight Ranger” liked to try and deal with low-level drug dealers and purse snatchers. But they can’t figure out his real identity, so they turn to the original comic book publisher who has also been searching for this man’s identity because he was been infringing on their copyright.

Elsewhere in the episode, Morland makes a surprise donation to Joan’s favorite charity, but it turns out not to be altruistic — he wants her to do him a business-related favor.

A new episode of ELEMENTARY airs tonight (March 20) at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

ELEMENTARY Sneak Peeks: Psychedelic Mushrooms


Sherlock and Joan investigate the murder of a botany professor in this week’s ELEMENTARY.

As Sherlock soon discovers, the professor was very into psychedelic mushrooms, but someone had killed him and a group of his students using poisonous ‘shrooms. Was it a rival professor or someone else?

Meanwhile, back at the homestead, Joan is distubed by the noise coming from the brownstone next door. She discovers that their neighbor, Trent (Richard Kind), is renting out his home through a vacation site that caters to hard partiers. As you can imagine, Joan isn’t happy about that fact.

ELEMENTARY Sneak Peek: Their Hardest Case?


Joan and Sherlock are going to tackle what may be their most difficult case ever on this week’s ELEMENTARY.

The pair are called to the New York City morgue, where a bomb has recently exploded. Apparently someone either planted it in the body cooler or in a body itself. The Medical Examiner thinks that a cartel may be involved. The difficulty is that the bomb destroyed any possible physical evidence, leaving Joan and Watson to go into the investigation blind.

Meanwhile, Joan becomes suspicious when the NYPD detective who holds a grudge against her asks her to consult on a case. Is she setting her up to fail?

ELEMENTARY Sneak Peek: Secrets in the Holmes Family


Joan dropped a bomb on last week’s ELEMENTARY when she told Sherlock she believed someone had tried to kill his father.

In this week’s episode, Sherlock decides to investigate who may have targeted Morland for death. Apparently Scotland Yard and the French police are unaware of the potential killer, so Sherlock turned his attention to a contact within a mercenary group that Morland occasionally employs. But from the looks of the clip below, he spent more time having carnal relations with contact than getting valuable intel from her about the attempted murder.

Elsewhere in the episode, Sherlock and Joan are going to learn that Morland is keeping a secret that threatens the safety of all of them. And the pair investigate two murders that are connected to a for-profit college and its illegal recruitment practices.
