Okay, so, I really like ‘Elementary’ but I am annoyed that Irene Adler is being pulled in as a love interest for Sherlock yet again.
Has no one read that story? She’s not his love interest! I actually find it much more interesting when she’s not! I suppose my irritation comes more from the fact that it seems like every modern incarnation has gone that route or at least hinted to it.
Considering her name was just dropped in this episode and it’s a bit early to jump to conclusions, maybe I’ll get lucky and it’ll turn out she’s not his love interest at all and her significance to him is something else entirely, like she was his best friend or a client that he failed or something. I really, really hope so because I’d like for Elementary to really surprise us with something wildly different than what has come before.
