“Ears to You” is tonight’s episode of “Elementary.” If you have yet to see tonight’s episode, beware of spoilers! To review the last case file, click here. Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from tonight’s episode. “Elementary” airs Thursday nights at 9 on CBS (KHOU).

The case this week is really, really strange. It’s a cold case where the it looks really, really, bad for the husband of the missing wife. Personally, it is difficult to believe that he is completely innocent and/or harmless, after all he killed the guy doing the ransom drop in the alley. That being said, it is great that the wife, Sarah, ended up being the bad guy. It is a little disappointing that it took Sherlock that long to remember that Sarah’s new husband is a plastic surgeon. Did you enjoy the case?

Lestrade is still hanging around the brownstone, making enemies of Romulus and Remus. You have to admit, his battle with the roosters is pretty hilarious. It is great that the writers include another episode with Lestrade. They could have simply notified viewers that he went on his merry way, but instead, the writers took the time to develop his character more. Lestrade opens up to Watson about his fears that Sherlock was right, and that he isn’t a good enough detective anymore. It was actually interesting to watch Lestrade take on a case. Sometimes these side cases can be boring, but it wasn’t with Lestrade’s mugging. His whole idea that Sherlock set everything up for him was brilliant too. What did you think of Lestrade during this episode?

Here are some thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. Watson immediately goes into sober companion mode when she realizes that Lestrade has been drinking in the Brownstone. While it is no longer her job title, it is always great to see Watson resume that role again. The writers are great at showing that Sherlock has a variety of strange friends. Even if we don’t get to meet the friends, having scenes like the ones in this episode where Sherlock gets delivered explosives to try to disarm. These scenes don’t take up a lot of space in the episode, but they are great. What did you think of the episode?
