Elementary Sneak Peek: Did Sherlock Try to Kill His Father?!

How’s this for family dysfunction? On Thursday’s Elementary (CBS, 10/9c), Morland confesses that he once suspected his own son of trying to off him!

In TVLine’s exclusive video, Sherlock confronts his pops about the shocking reveal, assuring him that even though his theory is false — “You’re alive” after all, the younger Holmes points out — their relationship “has reached its end.”

And here’s another disturbing thought: Morland didn’t immediately reach out to his brilliant P.I. offspring for help with the attempted murder investigation, leaving Sherlock to wonder, “Were you just following up on your suspicions, or did you intend to do me harm?”

Press PLAY above to watch the sneak peek, then hit the comments with your thoughts on the tense exchange.

    I love this show so much, and scenes like this one are the reason why. JLM is beyond amazing.

    Elementary is getting better & better! Every exchange between Sherlock & Morland are pure gold, but this one tops them all, so far! As for Jonny Lee Miller, the man is shockingly underrated!

    Probably Mycroft. And Morland probably got them mixed up.

  5. JLM is mainly a stage actor and he’s already been awarded the highest theatre award, The Olivier award and the Evening Standard award for his lead role in Frankestein together with Cumberbatch at the National Theatre. He is also one of Danny Boyle’s actors, hence his role in Frankenstein as well as Trainspotting. Danny Boyle will be doing the Trainspotting sequel which will be premiered in 2016. I’m sure that will be one of the favorites of next year’s Oscar as Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs was this year. Then and only then will we get to hear about JLM. I also think that as an actor, he’s not at all the type to be into that empty and shallow Hollywood celebrity life. He’s too intelligent and sensitive for that. Besides, if he wanted to, he could easily get into that ghetto by just getting himself a publicist just like all those mediocre actors do.

    Scenes like that of the background story don’t make up for the case of the week stuff. Show was a cool idea to begin with, hopefully the move to Sunday will be enough for them to get the message and end it this season.

    • Why do you HOPE for the show to end? You can always watch other shows without spilling it for those of us who still appreciate such a subtle and understated writing and acting. Actually, it’s a very confident show, in that it DOES NOT adhere to the typical stereo type stories, the type that majority of people demand. Elementary is a show that relies on a certain type of viewership that like a less contrived portrayal of Sherlock Holmes. Those of us who prefer to delve into Sherlock’s psychology and his personal history, will inevitably have to trust the writers to build up the story to a crescendo, as they did with the Kitty arc.
