Welcome to season two of Elementary! Yes, we know that Watson is a girl, and that the show takes place in New York as opposed to jolly old England. Let's meet our characters!


Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) is a recovering heroin addict who moved to New York after burning all his bridges behind him in London. Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) was hired to be his sober companion, and began coming along with him on his cases as he worked as a consulting detective with the NYPD. She enjoyed puzzling out cases with him, and when her time was up she decided to quit being a sober companion and to join Sherlock full time as a detective. He is trying to teach her everything he knows, which will take quite a long time.


Captain Tobias Gregson (Aidan Quinn) tolerates Sherlock's attitude and disruptive nature because he closes cases no one else can. He also tries to look out for Joan because Sherlock is apparently very cavalier about putting her in danger.


Detective Marcus Bell (Jon Michael Hill) begins season 1 very skeptical of Holmes and his abilities but at the end of the season he trusts Holmes and Watson and works with them to solve their cases. He works alongside Capt. Gregson.


Irene Adler/Moriarty (Natalie Dormer) seduced Sherlock in London when he was getting too close to her schemes, then faked her death to be rid of him. He crumbled in the aftermath, and ended up in New York. Once he got back on his feet she continued to keep an eye on him, as she judges that his intellect is the only one close to matching her own. Still, even though he gets close to taking her down after the reveal that she's alive and oh also his nemesis, Irene is ready to skip off into the sunset, getting away with her schemes. A shattered Sherlock ODs on heroin, causing her to visit him in the hospital because she actually cares for him, only to find out that it was a trap engineered by Watson and Holmes is perfectly healthy. The NYPD are waiting to take her into custody. We have no doubt not seen the last of the mysterious Moriarty.

Alfredo Llamosa (Ato Essandoh) is Sherlock's sponsor. He used to steal cars.
Ms. Hudson (Candis Cayne) used to be a client of Sherlock's, but now stops by to satiate her OCD by rearranging his bookshelves and keeping things neat.
S2 Casting:
Mycroft Holmes (Rhys Ifans) is Sherlock's brother who lives in London
Inspector Lestrade (Sean Pertwee) used to work with Holmes in London before Sherlock got heavily into heroin.

And we can't forget Clyde, the turtletortoise.


he's an ambulance! :3:




Sherlock often encourages Joan to learn how to protect herself and anticipate danger...

Also, didn't Moriarty actually get caught at the end of the finale because she confessed everything to Holmes after he faked his relapse/overdose and Watson caught it all on tape?

I mean, she'll obviously get out at some point because what's Holmes in the long-run without Moriarty, but right now I'm pretty sure she's in custody.

You are absolutely right! Somehow I totally forgot at out the overdose fakeout in the last episode. Shame on me. :blush: I will edit the OP.

I am loving psyched for this new season though ahhhhhhh!

That said, I hope we start with some more general episodes, then move back to wider arcs.

There's a commercial that says the first episode takes place in London. It's going to be fun.

And possibly Ms. Hudson as she's a canon character.

I will add Alfredo and Ms. Hudson to the OP - I was going to say that I was only including regular characters, but I already put in Irene Adler so might as well just go for it. :shrug: To be honest, I was tempted to make the OP only about Clyde.

If anyone has anything else I should put into the OP (more gifs?) just let me know! It's my first TVIV thread (we aren't counting the one I made for the first season of Blue Bloods :lol: )

I've made some Elementary gifs, you're welcome to use any in the OP if you want and I won't be offended if you use none. :) I'll also make any that anyone wants on request.

Elementary shot up to be one of my favorite shows last season, it just kept getting better and better. Can't wait for it to start again!

59 short stories (a couple with edited passages, maybe a few more that wouldn't fit like the empty house) and four novels with one having a very slightly revised ending.

I mean, I know what you're saying, both Irene Adler and Moriarty appear in one short story each and yet have become integral to the mythos.

Psyched for season 2, I love procedurals with jerk detectives.

Yeah, I'm admittedly unfamiliar with the actual written works but I'd imagine one of the first things that pops to mind whenever someone thinks of Sherlock Holmes these days is Moriarty.

New episode tonight!

Step Nine

Sherlock is called to London to revisit an old case, where he is forced to face his older brother, Mycroft. Although the siblings suffered a drastic falling-out a few years earlier, Mycroft allows Sherlock and Joan to stay in his new home, 221B Baker Street. With Joan in the middle, the brothers are forced to confront their very complicated history.

Enjoyed season 1, not sure exactly what I'd like to see in season 2. Anyone knowledgable on Sherlock Holmes lore able to comment on any interesting potential baddies for Holmes while he waits for Moriarty to escape?

On a sidenote, there is a pub called Sherlock Holmes in downtown Edmonton, and the owners opened up a wine bar called Moriarty's right next to it.

No, that's exactly what happened. The acquaintance was the one who was on the list.

Well, I thought it was just he had that guy do it for him. I don't know; with these kinds of things it seems like there would have been so many ways to not be on that list.

I was hoping the London stuff would be like a mini-arc, but it looks like it was just the one episode. Still hoping/assuming that Mycroft will show up here and there, Rhys Ifans was great.
