I'm confused about the episode titles. They start out as twist spoilers (ha!) then they change to include a muddle of lines from or things in the episode when there's no twist. This appears to speak to a lack of overall quality control on the series, it feels slapped together from random scripts and it explains why Holmes and Watson bare little to no traits of their namesakes . Watson's medical training is almost never used) and we get massive disjoints from one episode to the next. Last episode Holmes complains of no income and here he is offered lots of cash and refuses it, how else was he going to make money?
So the episode itself revolves around a man who believes he is being poisoned to be forgetful (something that has happened twice already in 17 episodes, again the writers don't seem to care about treading old ground and don't let Holmes acknowledge it).
I'm writing this while watching it and 13mins in and we've met 2 people who work in the industry that could have poisoned the victim, both had lines so my bet it was the nice lady character rather than the stiff business man character who is guilty.
15mins in and shes dead! So either guilty and/or a threat to the killer. Oh and Watson becomes a blood spatter analyst (yay medial training!.. sorta) but the time served cops have apparently never noticed the difference between pooled and sprayed blood?
20mins and some filler about man-made molecules and jumpers?
22mins Cop phones have no mute button and Bell is no longer grateful to Holmes for saving his neck.
23mins new Holmes skill Pick-pocketing and because this is Elementary we don't get to see it happen, only get told about it.
28mins so the jumpers were an initiative test?
33mins and we have an unrecorded verbal confession of murder, made outside of oath, by a guy who has just been told that they have no hard evidence against him and not even a deal offered. 10 minutes too early for this to be the killer.
39mins. Turns out to be someone we've never met, kudos writers that's how to write a clever ending.
41mins are we supposed to think Watson is clever for having a cop actually getting the evidence? I'm confused as to how having Holmes send her somewhere pointlessly over n over and becoming suspicious of foreigners is clever.
So the wrap up is that lots of people got sick and Holmes prevented more? maybe? I wasn't clear on that and he certainly didn't save anyone or reverse anyone's sickness. All he did otherwise was get the nice Asian lady killed. I guess that's why they ended abruptly without mentioning it.
