SummaryAdd a Summary
this second season deal with the big three in the holmes canon: the woman, the hound and the professor. enjoy.
(PBS) A Scandal in Belgravia: The central enigma concerns Irene Adler, a beautiful entrepreneur whose special relationship with the rich, powerful and royal has allowed her to amass coveted information powerful enough to topple the government. A worthy match for the aloof detective, Adler masterfully maneuvers her many assets in a game that Sherlock is ill-prepared to fight: love. Two brilliant minds lock together, producing a heat that brings a blush to John's cheek and a potential change to a celibate, cerebral detective. But who will come out on top? The Hounds of Baskerville: Boredom has set in at 221 Baker Street, with Sherlock jonesing for a meaty case and — in its absence — a cigarette. Only the arrival of Henry Knight, terrorized and desperately clinging to sanity, piques the consulting detective's interest. A gigantic hound — part tourist attraction, part conspiracy theory, part demonic moor stalker — is legend around Baskerville, a top-secret military compound where, it's rumored, chemical and biological weapons experiments are conducted on genetically engineered animals. And Henry Knight has just seen the hound's footprints in the very location where it killed his father decades before. Sherlock gleefully sets off to track the demonic hound with John at his side and Mycroft's access-granting government ID on hand to enter the high-security corridors of Baskerville. But he may have opened doors to a realm where deduction and reason have no place. The Reichenbach Fall: While Sherlock accrues unwanted accolades and press in gratitude for his mystery-solving prowess and John pointlessly counsels humility, the insane criminal mastermind Jim Moriarty is busy plotting the crime of the century. But bringing Britain to its knees is just a prelude for Sherlock's arch-nemesis, who orchestrates a perilous cat-and-mouse game with the object of his obsession. In a season finale both mind-blowing and gut-wrenching, the consulting detective and consulting criminal engage in an escalating series of high-stakes face-offs which begin in the courtroom and end in the solution of a diabolical and inescapable "final problem."
