TVLine’s May Sweeps Scoopapalooza: Elementary
PRE-FINALE EPISODES | Sherlock’s (duplicitous?) brother Mycroft (played by Rhys Ifans) returns to New York in the April 24 hour, but what - or whom? - is he really after? “At least on the surface, he’s there to tend to his business,” says executive producer Rob Doherty.
"But he’s also come back to talk to Joan about the possibility of a kind of relationship. She’s been on his mind, and he’s expressing greater interest." And that doesn’t sit well with her partner, "who would be troubled by the notion of [Joan] entering a romance with anyone, but [Sherlock’s] discomfort is compounded because this guy also happens to be his brother." It all leads to "a fun, but very awkward dinner" between the trio and… Ms. Hudson (returning guest star Candis Cayne)!
Meanwhile, “a few secrets come out” about Sherlock’s past in the last two episodes, courtesy of his bro. “We’ll find that those two guys intersected more than Sherlock thinks they did over the last five years. The truth is Mycroft has been keeping more of an eye on Sherlock than Sherlock understands.”
MAY 15 SEASON FINALE | Tensions rise between Sherlock and Joan, but duty calls when Mycroft finds himself in “a great deal of trouble,” Doherty previews. “In fact, his life is in danger, and the only people who can help him out of this particular jam are Sherlock and Joan. They really find themselves on an island where they can’t turn to the police, and case-wise, they have to take on a lot more than they do typically.”
