“Dead Clade Walking” 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. “Elementary” airs Thursday nights at 9 on CBS (KHOU).

Watson finds something in one of Sherlock’s unsolved cold cases. There is a little bit of Watson out on her own, but there could have been more. Previously when Watson takes the lead or does something on her own, it’s been off camera, so it is great to actually see Watson detecting. The case itself is not so much about the murder but about the fossil. It’s the focus, and honestly sometimes I forgot that there is a murder to solve, especially after the fossil goes missing. The fossil is the key to everything, and it does make sense that the writers wouldn’t have Watson and Sherlock interviewing witnesses of a case that is three years cold. What did you think of the case?

Sherlock is learning how difficult it is to be a sponsor. His scenes with Randy are great because it is a chance to see more of awkward Sherlock. He’s not in his element. It’s a whole different side to Sherlock. While he was reluctant at first, in this episode Sherlock leaves immediately when Randy texts, and even worries when Randy goes off the grid. This storyline is the most interesting one of the night, hands down. There are moments where Sherlock references his own sobriety struggles, but the focus is on helping Randy. Surprisingly, the writers don’t show Watson weighing in too much. She makes a comment or two, but Sherlock is mainly on his own. It’s a curious decision. How do you think Sherlock is doing as a sponsor?
