‘Elementary’ Post-Super Bowl XLVII review: Holmes faces a ghost from his past

ElementaryOn tonight’s post-Super Bowl XLVII new episode of “Elementary” Holmes is confused as to why Watson is subletting her apartment since whenever she is a sober companion she lives rent free with whomever she is working with, but she tells him that not only is it her sanctuary, but also it’s rent controlled so she wants to keep it.

When FBI is brought onto a case, Holmes comes face to face with Kathryn Drummond, an agent he has strong animosity towards and after Watson pushes the subject she learns that Holmes and Drummond had a relationship in the past.  Watson  doesn’t believe that their relationship was the only reason for Holmes’ being so upset with Drummond and after some investigation Watson learns that Drummond not only had a relationship with  Holmes’ so that she could profile him, but she also wrote a published paper on him, breaking his trust and exposing his life for all to read.

Watson returns to her apartment to collect her mail and learns that the man she had sublet her apartment to has been filming adult movies in her home and because of that she is getting evicted.  When she confronts her sub-letter about the films, he tells her he was desperate for money, but the situation is still the same, she is losing her apartment. As she digs deeper, she learns that the maintenance guy in her building was trying to sabotage her, so that she would lose her rent controlled apartment and he could take it over. After he admits his wrong doing, she is able to keep her apartment.

What was interesting about this episode is that this is the second episode where Holmes went after the criminal on his own and got violent with them, and we are not sure if this is a direction we want to see Holmes go down.  What did you think of tonight’s episode of “Elementary”? Do you feel that CBS made the right choice airing this show after the Super Bowl, or is there another show you think would have been better for this time slot?  Leave us a comment and tell us what you think.
