Elementary Sneak Peek: Sherlock Is Still In Contact With [Spoiler]!

Turns out a pen pal is forever on Elementary — even if she did try to destroy your life.

In TVLine’s exclusive video from Thursday’s Season 4 premiere (CBS, 10/9c), Sherlock imagines a life behind bars for himself after his brutal beating of Oscar, and tells Watson that they can exchange letters— just as he and Moriarty do!

“That’s still going on?” a surprised Joan responds.

As for when we might see Moriarty in the flesh, that’s a matter complicated by her portrayer Natalie Dormer’s busy film schedule.

“I reached out to Natalie recently because I did have some ideas and was hoping we’d be able to see her towards the end of the season. But she is acting in a movie [titled In Darkness] that she co-wrote,” executive producer Rob Doherty told TVLine in late August. “She is a friend of the show, for sure, and we love having her around. So at the moment, the odds are slim, but the door is not shut.”

At least we’ll always have snail mail. Press PLAY above to watch the preview, then hit the comments with your thoughts on Sherlock’s correspondence.

    There’s no reason we couldn’t see one or more of Moriarty’s minions show up during the course of the season and mess with Holmes & Watson. The loss of the primary antagonist has been really damaging to the series, if you ask me. The writers could do a helluva much better job keeping her alive than one V.O. and threatening letter.

    Then again, screw Dormer. Kill her off and have someone take her place. She’s great, but no one’s irreplaceable (see: Farrah, David Caruso, any and all Housewives). It’ll give you tons of juicy story if Holmes and/or Watson did it or are accused of doing it.

    P.S. Thanks for your coverage of this show, btw. It doesn’t get enough attention, imho.

    I love that her voice is calm and soothing until she hears about Moriarty and then it gets loud and judgy. Lol.

    The ad was 100 seconds, the clip was 35s. And since I wasn’t paying attention I have no idea what they were selling. But hey at least the clip did play rather than geo-blocked. News, bad news?!

    I didn’t like the end of s3 but really looking forward to s4: looks like fun. I’d love to see Moriarty again, but if that’s not possible it will still be a great show without her. As for the correspondence, I’m surprised Watson was surprised!
