Sherlock: "Bullet riddled man. Is the décor in here not American enough for you? We could get some Rockwells. Deep fat fryer."

Watson: “Why don’t you want to go to the party?”

Sherlock: "I need something powdery that won’t kill us. Surprise me."

Sherlock: “I’m sorry. Have we met? Hi, hi, I’m Sherlock. I’m a recovering drug addict. You know you bear a striking resemblance to a sobriety counselor I once knew. What’s that you say? Triggers abound in bars? Hmm.”

Can we take a moment to fully appreciate the title of this episode? It’s fantastic. This case takes a couple interesting turns. Dr. Barry Granger lived a very interesting life. The Mossad connection is very strange, but it does make the case more exciting, even only for a moment. Hank Price goes through a lot of complicated steps to kill Dr. Granger and his ex-wife. It is a little bit insane. The writers could have spent a minute or two more discussing Hank Price to help the viewers process it a bit more. Did you enjoy the case?

Watson helps Bell locate a witness, Nicole Watkins, who has disappeared right before she was supposed to testify. It is always great when one of Watson’s side cases brings in other characters, especially Bell. The two of them have great chemistry, and so it is great to see moments of them together. What would have been better is if Bell and Watson actually worked together, as in side by side physically on this case. Yeah, it is nice that Watson helps Bell out, but it would be fantastic to see the two of them chasing down a lead together instead of just taking turns. Would enjoy seeing Watson and Bell working together more?

Bell has a personal connection of sorts with the Nicole case. She is staying with a favorite teacher of her, Mr. Rose. He stood up to gang bangers when he taught, and because of Mr. Rose, Bell says he had the courage to stand up when gang bangers approached him about joining a gang. This is a nice moment because it gives the writers a chance to give viewers a glimpse into Bell’s past. The Bell connection is what helps make this storyline interesting because really the moment where Bell meets Mr. Rose and chats with him is the best part of the storyline. Plus it leads to a great conversation between Bell and Sherlock outside of Bell's party. Did you enjoy the storyline?
