Holmes was played by ‘Irene Adler’ who is a bit young to be a criminal mastermind. ‘Irene’ was a creation to study Holmes and he seems to have got over his great love being a lie pretty quickly.
Holmes is a jackass. Watson and ‘Irene’ aka Moriarty have a stare down. Watson is not impressed by her at all. At least this Moriarty isn’t screaming and overacting like Andrew Scott did in ‘Sherlock’. Moriarty has a plan involving Macedonia, Greece, an assassination and a currency bid.
Moriarty’s reach is very long, Holmes stomps around screaming, people die and Moriarty gloats but is defeated via her love for Holmes. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of her. This was good. After their victory Watson and Holmes stare at bees.
“I’m saying I’m better.”
“Let me win.”
“You’re not afraid of me.”
“Spirit of the Dam-Busters and all that.”
“You just point and shoot. Repeatedly.”
Truth Part 2
Conrad plays the hero. Jack snots. Daniel is a jackass as he throws Aiden under a bus for the bombing. Daniel is like scabies. Victoria won’t stop being awful. Declan’s dying yet still looks good. Pa Porter never taught his sons about birth control. Conrad rants. Aiden is arrested. Conrad makes a big reveal about the Initiative. Conrad is gross.
Declan dies of a ruptured artery, Jack blames Conrad overlooking the part he himself played in getting the moron killed. Aiden is freed and Nolan is arrested. It is Nolan and not Aiden who is branded the disciple of David Clarke. Didn't see that coming.
I think I will watch season 3 after all. Charlotte looks up a website called Teenage Mommy, Aiden and Daniel have a confrontation and Daniel may have killed Aiden. Nolan has unintentionally dug himself a hole and then a video of Padma surfaces to dig said hole even deeper.
Conrad is elected, Patrick shows up and Emily reveals herself to Jack. This was good but it is ridiculous that Emily has Jack, Aiden, Daniel and Nolan dancing at her whims.
“We are the first responders.”
“There is no Initiative my dear.”
“The hellcat I married raises her déclassé head.”
“Your little paranoid delusion.”
“That of your three children, the two that you decided to acknowledge want nothing to do with you.”
“I’m Amanda Clarke.”
