Jeff, are you going to make any comments about the episode? The Marchioness was portrayed as a gold digger.
I wonder if anyone else thought Sherlock's excuse for having relations with his brother's fiancee was self-serving. Bad Sherlock. No wonder his brother was angry with him.
I did not think Joan and Mycroft had gone past the dinner stage so I was really surprised when she admitted what they had done. Mycroft seems to like her, but he could be asking her out to antagonize Sherlock.
The case: Someone murdered a horse trainer and they needed to find out why. The reason would hopefully lead them to the murderer.
Sherlock was very clever in following the clues and uncovering both the murderer and some illegal dealings that the Marchioness was involved in.
Mycroft owns restaurants in London, but he was visiting America because he had just bought a restaurant here.
And yet someone asked why he needed to hire a chef.
I watched a movie called "Love's Kitchen" over the weekend. The only similarity is that the British chef opened a new place. It was in Britain and it wasn't fancy, though he was a chef. It was a romantic comedy involving an American food critic, the illegitimate daughter of a rock star her father met in the U.S.
Sherlock always looks angry when his brother is around.
I don't blame him. He makes me angry too.
That was a very good mystery.
I recognized the name of the woman with the horses. It's hard to believe she was Kevin's sister in "The Wonder Years". Kevin, meanwhile, is a very active TV director. And some of his shows definitely don't have the wholesome image that show had.

It was a very interesting case. When Sherlock realized the murderer must have climbed a tree, he determined which tree would be the most likely. Then he dusted the tree branch for fingerprints and that led to the murderer.
I forgot to mention that at the beginning of the episode, Sherlock was in an NA meeting. He finally opened up and was voluntarily sharing something deeply personal and then his brother made a comment. Sherlock turned around and was furious that his brother violated his privacy. Joan waited for him in the hallway instead of sitting in the meeting.
Also, Mycroft was diagnosed with leukemia and needed bone marrow. He told his ex-fiancee but had never mentioned it to Sherlock. Sherlock was upset about that too.
