Back at Holmes’ apartment, Watson has found what we’re led to believe is his iconic Stradivarius.
Would you play Misty for me?
Her ex calls, she’s pissed off, and Holmes takes the opportunity to set fire to the Strad, claiming he feels like Hendrix. Oh, and he mocks Thai/Tye name. As well he should.
I’m a voodoo child!
Gregson calls, and everyone goes to a new crime scene. Same MO, same smell. Bell acerbically comments that it’s “too bad they can’t put out an APB on an armpit”. Oh snap #2! Then Watson notices this woman has the same corneal disorder, which makes her the half-sister of the other stiff.
Bell is now officially the breakout character of this series.
Back in Gregson’s office, he says neither vic knew the other existed. Bell says Anna (vic #2) filed a complaint a few weeks back about a stalker. Gregson knows him! He’s a former cop, Mike, who runs an investigation agency. Everyone troops over to talk to him. Mike denies trailing Anna and cites privilege. Holmes brings Mike outside and says he knows Mike is using meth, threatens to expose Mike unless he spills, and recommends a rehab center.
Mike re-enters his office and lets Gregson see the file. Next, everyone visits Rebecca and tells her the half-brother and -sister are dead.
But not Yvette? Damn.
Holmes then accuses her of the murder. Rebecca denies that, but does confirm her father, on his deathbed, told her and Yvette about the other two siblings. Rebecca claims Yvette tried to kill herself. Holmes points out that with Yvette dead, Rebecca stood to gain all her father’s inheritance. After Yvette slaps him, Holmes asks her why she dressed as her sister and tried to frame her. She says he’s crazy.
Hit me baby, one more time.
Arriving home, Holmes and Watson encounter Tye. Watson gets rid of him.
Just go home and tie one on, Thai.
Then Gregson calls and says security cameras at Rebecca’s apartment show she didn’t leave the building the night of either murder. Again Holmes’ “deductions” are just a tad faulty.
At another 12-step meeting, Holmes and Watson discuss the case and Holmes ponders the evidence. Or something.
Why did I take this gig? I should have listened to Benedict.
While someone natters on, Holmes and Watson leave. He has a killer to stop, people! Holmes runs into Yvette’s hospital room where Rebecca is reading to her, calls Rebecca a murderer, and accuses her of tampering with her apartment security cameras. Hospital staff rush in, Holmes names another half-sibling, whose name and address he helpfully provides, Bell comes in, Watson does a completely unconvincing acting job, and Bell arrests Holmes.
