review by
Mike Haberfelner

Having gotten hold of Sherlock Holmes (Henry Lloyd-Hughes) the last episode, Bea (Thaddea Graham) locks him into her room and forces him to talk by promising him opium - and talk he does, telling her about her and Jessie's (Darci Shaw) mother Alice (Eileen O'Higgins), who, like Jessie, was an empath. And back in the day, Sherlock, Alice and Dr. Watson (Royce Pierreson) had a detective agency that was the talk of the town, Sherlock would impress everyone with his deductive skills, Alice's abilities would come in handy invariably, and Watson pretty much kept things together. Holmes and Alice soon became lovers, much to Watson's dismay. Of course, the trio also dabbled in the occult, and eventually happened upon some supernatural entity that sucked Alice out of existence.

Other subplots concern Bea and Leopold (Harrison Osterfield), who seems to make his residence with Bea and company a permanent one, getting closer and closer, and Billy (Jojo Macari) trying to get even with Vic Collins (Alex Ferns), minder of the workhouse he grew up at, but while being up to the job physically, he's no match for the man mentally ...


What's cool about this episode is that it stays focused and ties up one very central narrative thread rather nicely - but to be honest, it does so in exactly the way one would have it expected to, down to where Sherlock and Alice are lovers.But on the plus side, the episode has a nice narrative arc itself while also advancing the series' overall arc, and leaving enough mystery to keep one watching. The story of Billy wanting to get even with his former minder seems rather unnecessary though, and isn't even all that well-told.
