Storyline

Sherlock and Watson coordinated doctored versions of the unflattering truth to testify in court about an investigation during which detective Bell was wounded while taking a bullet for Holmes from a wrong and rudely approached false suspect. Captain Gregson still defends them and the judge leaves it to the NYPD commissioner whether to follow a court recommendation to revoke their police consultant status. Watson privately questions Holmes' often problematic insensitivity. Written by KGF Vissers

SPOILER - Plot hole makes for awful episode
5 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS

In an episode where we are being led to believe that Holmes did something outrageous and finally gets caught is told through testimony at a disciplinary determining if he and Watson will be dismissed as NYPD consultants, the big moment arrives when Watson finally explains the story of how an officer was shot after the conclusion of a case.

Because of Holmes questioning a suspect at his workplace, putting pressure on him by revealing a secret he was keeping within earshot of co-workers, that suspect later loses his job and likely his freedom. So the suspect decides to shoot the man he believes is responsible (Holmes) but an officer takes a bullet for Holmes, causing the hearing.

This would work if the writers had made the secret anything other than that the suspect had a criminal record. While Holmes found this out through less than legal means (something he lies about in the hearing), logically if any actual police officer was to question a suspect, he would have looked up his record before doing so and found the same information legally (and in fact that is probably standard police procedure) which would have been used to intimidate the suspect in the same way as Holmes did and therefore would have had the same result.

Any police officer, including the Captain and Commissioner characters at the hearing and certainly THE character known for deductive reasoning, Sherlock Holmes, would have been able to argue that and the whole hearing would have been moot.

I am neither a lawyer nor a police officer and I spotted this plot hole a mile off. All the writers had to do was make the suspect's secret be anything other than something any police officer could have easily found in police records.

Extremely disappointing, lazy and sloppy.
