Watson: “Why did you dress Clyde up like a shark?”
Sherlock: “Miss Hudson is concerned that the winter has been unduly harsh on him, so she knitted him several turtle cozies. I find it amusing to look at and thought it would be a nice way to wake up.”

Back in 2005, the police thought they had caught the man responsible for killing women and leaving a bite mark on their shoulder. Aaron Colville died in 2005, and so when two women pop up that have been killed the same way as his victims, suspicions start to arise. This is an interesting case, and it is nice to have the change up in how a case is introduced. The crime scene at the beginning of the episode looks similar to the Colville’s murders, but in fact, it has nothing to do with them. There are numerous false leads, but Stan looks guilty for quite a bit. The writers make it easy to buy into Stan’s guilt, and so the twist that he didn’t actually do it, is nicely played. Did you enjoy the case?
Watson struggles with a decision that she made back in 2005. She claims that she let Aaron Colville die, when in fact, she made numerous attempts to spur the surgeon into acting faster. There are a couple nice things about this storyline. One is that it provides a personal connection to the case, in a way. Watson is a little motivated to find out what happened. Also, this allows for Sherlock to step up and be a friend to Watson. He offers his opinions on what happened, and is able to try to see that Aaron dying was not her fault. Anytime there is a friendship moment, especially when it involves Sherlock being there for Watson, it is fantastic to see. The writers continue to do a great job developing Sherlock and Watson’s relationship. What did you think of Watson during this episode?
