Joan and Kitty try to prove that a string of murders, stemming from an old case Sherlock and Kitty solved in London, is connected to an international government conspiracy with the Defense Intelligence Agency at its center.

AV Club files this one away with a B-.

Is it just me or were they being coy with us with a red haired red herring?

Wasn't herring all Sherlock had in the fridge, according to Kitty? And didn't Sherlock say it'd put hair on Archie's chest?

While I'm happy to see Kitty get some resolution, and not totally upset at the way the show went about it, I've got the one little thing bugging me: Sherlock was sore that Kitty never let him know she was OK, as if he had ever given any indication ever before in his life to anyone that he'd be interested in their welfare after they went away. CF Mycroft. Kitty was just supposed to intuit from afar that Sherlock had matured exactly one iota?

I did like these episodes! Kitty and Joan are a formidable team. I was legit frightened for the head lawyer when they ambushed him in the dark parking garage. (Futbol. Foot-ball. I didn't notice the cold soda joke until the second watch. There was a rather lot of subtle humor in this one.)

Zero Shinwell, which is interesting from the season-arc perspective.

Little glimpse of our NSA friend. The positioning of big, intimidating, powerful forces around Sherlock (NSA, Everyone, and Morland of course) is interesting. I hope the show can keep those big plates spinning as they eventually bring them each into full view.
