Review Frances Roberts Feb 8, 2013

Sherlock's past returns to haunt him in this week's addiction-probing episode of Elementary...

This review contains spoilers.

1.15 A Giant Gun, Filled With Drugs

Non-Superbowl watching non-Sherlocks like myself may have missed the fact that Elementary ran an extra episode this week, The Deductionist. A serial killer case featuring an FBI Profiler with whom Holmes had a past sexual dalliance, the episode was one of the show's most mainstream crime TV instalments yet. Underneath all the CSI stuff though, was a fascinating thread of character development for our Holmes, a man revealed to be frustrated with his predictable slide into addiction and filled with dread at the prospect of a potential relapse.

It was pleasantly in keeping then, that A Giant Gun, Filled With Drugs also swung the spotlight onto Holmes’ drug history by putting the character in a position of extreme temptation.
