  • HAPPY SOBERVERSARY, SHERLOCK!

    Elementary "Dead Man's Switch" Review: Risky Business (Blackmail, That Is)

    All considered, this was a solid episode with some nice emotional speeches for the featured extras, a great moment for JLM, and another nice little vignette where he tried to get his sponsor to climb into the back of the car as an ersatz sensory deprivation chamber but instead Watson just called up a picture of the suspect on her phone like a normal person.

  • Episode Summary

    EDIT

    Holmes and Watson look for a murdered blackmailer's accomplice. The blackmailer was targeting families of rape victims. Sherlock opposes celebrating his one year of sobriety.
