The final season of 'Elementary' finds Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) returning to the place where Sherlock's storied legend began - London. Having lied and confessed to a murder he did not commit - to protect Watson's good name - Sherlock moved back to England to avoid jail time. Loyal Dr. Joan Watson followed him across the pond, where the detective duo jump right into more intriguing cases and encounter a slate of clever criminals, relentless adversaries and at least one old nemesis. Back in New York, Captain Thomas Gregson (Aidan Quinn) and Detective Marcus Bell (Jon Michael Hill) feel the absence of their former consultants, but it may not be too long before unorthodox crimes and common enemies bring the foursome back together. Witness the unique evolution of this classic team and hit series in 'The Final Season'.
The final deduction
- Elementary: Series 7 review by RP
Although I am really sorry to see the end of the series. It is probably fair to say it could have ended a season before. This final season was really a chance to say goodbye to some of the characters from the previous six seasons. All of whom, even if they were only there as a baddie for one episode, are very memorable. There is a new force for evil in this shortened final season. One that has money and backing and power. Surely a match for Holmes and Watson? There is a tragic end for somebody and a few needlessly written possible ends for others. But hurriedly they are explained and by the end we are left with the feeling the writers were split between happy and sad denouements So goodbye then to one of the most entertaining detective series around. Far more relatable and fun than the BBC version of Sherlock Holmes, although other will disagree. I for one will miss male and female lead characters managing to be friends without any needless romantic attachments. Both being as important as the other.
