On the episode, Holmes is enlisted to recover sensitive material from the titular blackmailer, who targets the families of rape victims — but there’s a twist. TV Guide spoke to showrunner Rob Doherty and here are the things we can look forward to:
“At the very end of the [original] story, Milverton is killed and Sherlock walks away. We didn’t think that really fit for our structure, so for us, that’s really the beginning of the story. Sherlock is hired to recover something, happens to be there when somebody comes after Milverton and then has to figure out what to do next.”
‘Elementary’ airs every Thursday on CBS.
