Episode Number: 5×23
Holmes and Watson investigate a murder that puts them in the crosshairs of one of New York City’s deadliest gangs. Also, Holmes’ behavior becomes increasingly erratic when he secretly interacts with a mysterious woman.
I am so confused as to who this mystery woman is. People in the comments have been theorizing that she could be his sister and if that’s true, then that’s great because introducing a long-lost romantic interest would be out of the ordinary especially with this storyline that they’re introducing. But why is she meddling (or was she helping?) with Sherlock’s case?
Interesting to see how Sherlock was affected by Shinwell’s death and how he wasn’t able to be honest with Joan about it. In time, I’m sure he’ll open up to her in his own way.
I really liked the whole SBK plot and how Tyus and his brother communicated with their members. Smart and technologically savvy. I’m quite impressed. For sure Tyus seems to be the head of SBK and it’s only a matter of time before Sherlock, Joan, Marcus, and Gregson get him for good.
Loved how Joan stayed up all night while Sherlock slept in (role reversal!) and figured out how the gang was communicating with each other. That was very cool.
