Elementary: The Man With the Twisted Lip Episode Review

When Drones Attack

Posted: by Tyler Olson

***The review below may contains some spoilers.***


Unmanned drones have become the latest military craze, but what will happen when those drones get too advanced, then fall into the wrong hands?

Just think of all the murders and assassinations that would be nearly impossible to solve if attack drones were flying around and killing people. I'm sure tracking down the source of the controller would be no easy task. At least the bigger drones probably could be stopped with surveillance, but how about the little ones? There are so many bugs in the world that noticing a shiny one would be highly unlikely.

And here I thought I hated mosquitoes before.

This case certainly took some wild and unexpected turns. A jail cell full of drug dealers, a COO of a company, and not to mention the political backlash the report will cause, are pretty substantial results for a missing person case. I think it's safe to say that they have made even more enemies this day.

Although, it appears they already have enough of those on their plate thanks to Mycroft. I suspected that Sherlock's brother was the bad apple of the family, but I didn't expect that he would stoop this low. It takes a certain kind of person to plot the demise of his own brother, but sending a criminal organization to kidnap his partner is even worse.

Could his organization have planned Alistair's downfall, too? That would have seemed like a good first step.

Sherlock's reaction to this is going to be awful. No only is he likely to take that packet he stole from the druggie's place, but I'm expecting to see the murderer side of Sherlock to return, too. And that's before he finds out his brother had anything to do with it. I wouldn't be surprised if he springs Moriarty from her prison and join her organization to enact his revenge. Actually, that sounds like a fantastic idea; it would certainly spring new life into the series.

Something tells me Joan isn't going to be a nice prisoner, though. She's never shown herself to be the type to just accept defeat, so she's probably going to attempt a few escapes and teach her captors a few lessons in the process. They better be protecting their soft spots.

It's hard to believe that this isn't the lead-in to the actual season finale (there still 3 episodes left). I can't wait to see how this plays out.
