    Cool episode, The matter of fact conversation with the serial killer, the unapologetic rudeness and intolerance for incompetent cops was great given the stakes. Holmes reaching the limits of detective work when all avenues for surveillance and deduction have been taken away and becoming desperate. Although unlike the BBC show this does not address the fact that Sherlock Holmes can not always solve the case. Is it perhaps because the US has difficulty portraying a television crime solver that may be unsuccessful or fallible even. I applaud this show for not taking themes such as drug addiction lightly however this episode got probably the closest to showing a Holmes that was not omnipotent.
