Extended spells off the air seem to be becoming more fashionable in network television, and CBS’s crime procedural, Elementary, has fallen victim to that in 2018, with its sixth season premiere due Monday, April 30, nearly a year after its late May 2017 fifth season finale.
That finale presented worrying signs for Sherlock Holmes’ mental state, and this is fleshed out nicely in the season’s first two episodes. Holmes believes he is suffering from post concussion syndrome, and both episodes develop this storyline well, and it impacts on his cases in surprising ways.
The season premiere, titled An Infinite Capacity for Taking Pains, has an interesting beginning, with a sex tape making its way online, which both partners didn’t consent to and want removed. The plot morphs nicely from there, and at a meeting Holmes runs into a fellow former addict whose has a secret that looks likely to provide some juicy storytelling through the rest of the season. This marks the introduction of Elementary‘s newest regular cast member, Desmond Harrington.
