Banker Eddie Van Coon and reporter Brian Lukis are both shot dead in identical slayings, in rooms locked from the inside. Chinese museum employee Soo Lin tells Sherlock Holmes that, as a teenaged orphan in China, she ran drugs for the Black Lotus crime syndicate, for whom the two dead men also worked. She too is then murdered, the killer being a human fly who can scale buildings. The gang mistake Watson for Holmes and capture him and his new girl-friend, requiring Holmes to come to the rescue.

Early in this episode, in the first crime scene, a book by Dan Brown
is clearly in Van Coon's apartment, "The Lost Symbol". Like in many of Brown's books - and especially this one - he deals with codes. This episode's main clue to find the killer are the codes he leaves in the crime scenes. See more
Holmes is "backstage" while the Chinese circus is performing. He sprays a single, yellow line across the mirror. He hears something behind him, spins around, the camera angle changes to include what Sherlock hears, with the mirror now behind him. On the mirror is now a doubled spray of the line, like he went back and forth over it, instead of the single line. See more
