CBS’ Elementary will be back next week for the season three premiere. While the fans at NYCC already got to screen the first episode, everyone at home is still waiting to see what comes next. As you’re waiting, check out this list of need-to-knows regarding what happened last season. It should help you prepare for the season premiere on Thursday, October 30th.

  • All season, Joan developed as an investigator and began taking on some cases of her own.
  • The relationship between Mycroft and Holmes continues to develop as Mycroft not only gets into all sorts of trouble, but attempts to convince Sherlock to move back to England.
  • We got a Bell-centric episode where he got shot as a result of Holmes’ actions but eventually saved Joan and Sherlock from losing their position as consultants for the NYPD (though not without a bit of bitterness toward Sherlock).
  • Moriarty is brought in to assist on a case of child abduction. However, it turns out the child is her daughter and she is freed to go save her before submitting herself once again to arrest.
  • Sherlock becomes an NA sponsor to a young man named Randy.
