On the latest episode of Elementary, Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) tried to track down a missing guitar.
At the start of the episode, a new experimental system, called Bulletpoint, designed to listen for gunshots picked up several shots being fired. The system also recorded the audio of a man being tortured for the whereabouts of Francis.
Later, they discovered that the man was having an affair. A search of the house of his mistress revealed that Francis wasn’t a woman, but an incredibly rare guitar worth millions.
Next a man turned up dead, killed by blows from the missing guitar. The guitar was also destroyed during the murder. Sherlock then found out that the Bulletpoint system had been hacked and someone was playing a gunshot recording to create reports of unsolved gun crime.
Eventually the evidence led to a man who was in the running to be mayor. The fake gun crimes were being used to inflate crime statistics in certain districts. Cuts on his hands matched were caused by the guitar he used to beat the dead man to death.
Elsewhere in the episode, Watson found out that Shinwell (Nelsan Ellis) had been shot at. He didn’t tell her because he thought it was just normal gang violence.
At a meeting with the police, Sherlock was told that the gun fired at Shinwell had been using in an unsolved murder 12 years earlier. They suspected that the attempted shooting of Shinwell was personal.
At the end of the episode, Sherlock confronted the brother of the man murdered 12 years ago. Sherlock had worked out that Shinwell was the one who killed the man’s brother and that he was the one who had shot at Shinwell.
The next episode is Dead Man’s Tale. Sherlock and Joan question how well they know Shinwell when they investigate his role in the unsolved murder of his friend.
