We are still well over a month away from the “Elementary” season 2 premiere, and to us this really just means one thing: No one in their right mind is going to give away some of their juicier scoop now. The writers and producers are going to hold on to their most-shocking bits until the time is right to reveal them; and while what we have for you now may give you cause to be afraid, it is not something that will make you wonder if Sherlock is going to get himself killed a year into the show.
The image here is a piece of script from an upcoming episode posted by the show’s staff, and it describes what is probably either a clip of a reenactment scene or the actual murder that occurred before Sherlock and Watson arrive on the scene. Either way, this looks on paper to be in the vein of many other classic cop-show murders: You have gunfire, and then a need to call in a quirky detective. This just so happens to be one of the most famous quirky detectives of all.
We went through an interesting journey with the first season of “Elementary,” largely in that we started off excited for it, then grew somewhat indifferent around the midway point when the story started to become stale. Then, our excitement peaked during the final weeks, when the Moriarty plot was going strong and we had something beyond just a standalone episode without clearly-defined beginnings, middles, and ends.
As you may know already, the “Elementary” premiere is going to be set in London; but do you want to move beyond that? If so, our advice is to just head on over to the link here.
