'Elementary' Season three - Because Brad brought it up. . ..

Elementary Season 3 Spoilers, Casting: Sherlock's New Partner, Watson's New Boyfriend; Dynamic Changes Expected

"Elementary" Season 3 spoilers in TV entertainment news reveals Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) gets a new apprentice and Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) has a new boyfriend. These updates are expected to affect the dynamic between the two main characters in the CBS series.

Sherlock Holmes (Miller) gets himself involved with the British Intelligence MI6. Watson (Liu) moves out of Holmes' pad. Mycroft (Rhys Ifans) fakes his death. These are the developments in the Elementary Season 2 finale.
When the series returns on CBS later this year, Holmes will be "trying to get in Joan's good graces after almost a year away in London," TVLine reported, implying a possible year-long time jump in the Elementary Season 3 premiere.
Ophelia Lovibond joins the Elementary Season 3 cast as Kitty Winter, Sherlock's new apprentice. TVLine also reported Winter's relationship with Sherlock Holmes "will have ongoing repercussions for his relationship with Joan."
Lovibond also stars in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" as Carina. This film, which features Chris Pratt, Lee Pace and Zoe Saldana, debuts in U.S. theatres on Aug. 1.        
Raza Jaffrey is also in for Elementary Season 3 as Watson's new boyfriend. It seems Mycroft's fake death effectively ends any further romance with Watson, at least for the time being.
Fans are eager to find out in Elementary Season 3 whatever Holmes finds in his MI6 stint, and how he would find his way back from London to New York (assuming Sherlock will be NYC-bound, after all). Captain Thomas Gregson (Aidan Quinn) and Detective Marcus Bell (Jon Michael Hill) are likely to play a role in Sherlock's return.
Will Sherlock Holmes backslide to substance addiction? Viewers saw Sherlock secure a packet of heroin from his secret stash, but it remains to be seen what he does with it. With new characters coming, Elementary Season 3 is hoped to bring some fresh twists and turns for its avid viewers.
The Elementary Season 3 premiere airs on CBS on Oct. 30, according to TVLine.


  1. When it comes to "Elementary", Brad will say just about anything negative about it, even if it contridcts previously stated opinions he's had One opinion he's long maintained he wished Lucy Liu had been cast as Holmes ("And it’s still not Dr. Watson. Lucy Liu playing the every(wo)man at Holmes’s side is like a halogen headlight being subdued enough to use as a household flashlight. The power she’s wielded on screens big and small for so many years is something a fan of hers just wants to see come blasting out -- I still contend she’s a better Sherlock Holmes actor than her partner." "Another Week of Mr. Elementary" Friday, December 14, 2012 is just one example). Perhaps he'll justify it as Holmes is "a role, a mantle which could be taken up by anyone"--Lucy Liu, a muppet--anyone, while Watson must always be male.

    While CBS is releasing actual information about the upcoming season, as apposed to the BBC's twitter tease earlier this month, personally I'd rather not read about it and be surprised when the season starts in October. I'm happy for Brad though, as it gives him fodder to wildly speculate and complain about. He can built the most incredible and complex sand castles out of almost-nothing and when the tide of reality washes in knocks down said castle he just builds a different one and claims it the same as the old one.

    1. You seem a little bitter today. Did I miss one of Brad's posts or somethin'?

  2. Thanks, John. While I stand by my comments, you're right about them having a bitter quality. Apologies all around (Sorry, Brad). "Elementary" is open to criticism, and you and have expressed our share, Brad has gone out of his way since Summer 2012 to heap scorn and abuse on the show--while giving "Sherlock" a pass for the very same criticisms. For example, Brad complained about the crassness of a first season "Elementary" show with dialog from Sherlock saying to effect "I've left a urine sample on your bed" and Joan "I hope it's in a bottle". Brad in the comment section of the post saying that urine is what makes "Elementary" so special. Well, with "His Last Vow" from Series Three, that's no longer true. No comment from Brad though. Perhaps he sees it as a wonderful "Big Lebowski" homage (John: That fireplace really tied the room together, did it not? Sherlock: Indeed. John: And Magnussen peed in it. Sherlock: John, please.). It's a little lonely being a "Elementary"-liking Sherlockian. And "Watson: A role or a person?" was fairly thoughtful, even though it's a bit of a crock (For example, does a modern-day retelling have to have a white Holmes and Watson?)

    Thanks, again.

    1. No, thanks for stopping by/ i always love your comments, but like you said. . .
