This was a good suspense story. We had to wonder if the husband was telling the truth and if he was not, how would there be fresh blood with his wife’s DNA.
Sherlock’s amazing memory helped him to arrive at a plausible explanation and he solved the case. The one surprising glimpse of how the “ear” procedure looked caused me a momentary bout with nausea, probably because it caught me off guard.
I am glad that Lestrade investigated and solved the mugging case. I do not like the way they were making him seem totally incompetent. He had to have some investigative skills when he was an inspector for Scotland Yard.
I think they left some loose ends about the husband, but I guess that was not important.

Jeff Lestrade is the inspector Sherlock worked with in London. Since Sherlock was consulting for Scotland Yard, an inspector was assigned to work with him the same way Detective Bell is assigned to work with him in America.
Lestrade started working for a firm in America and that is how he and Sherlock wound up on the same case.
And the idea was that Lestrade couldn't solve cases without Sherlock.
I halfway suspected when I saw the feather that Sherlock had created the whole thing, but he denied any involvement. Maybe Lestrade really is that good.
But even before Sherlock realized the missing woman was married to a plastic surgeon, I figured out that he could have somehow created ears that looked like hers. How he did it with her DNA, though, was something I would have never come up with.
I did like the chicken jokes that were left over. I wondered how long it would take to get rid of them. Surely if they were going to be loose like that they wouldn't be permanent pets.
