‘Elementary’ Episode Guide (Jan. 29): A Kidnapper Threatens to Start Executing His Hostages

“Over a Barrel” (01/29/17) – A man takes hostages, including Joan, and threatens to execute them unless Holmes finds the person responsible for the death of his son. As Sherlock investigates, the captor gives him 16 hours to find the perpetrator before the statute of limitations on the crime runs out, on “Elementary,” Sunday, Jan. 29 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode are Robert Capron (Mason), Isiah Whitlock, Jr. (Jack Brunelle), Shuler Hensley (Frank Trimble), Teddy Canez (Maynor Palacio), Rodney Richardson (Reggie), Jason Bowen (Dejuan Rowe), Tony Roach (Dario Canales), John Rue (Norm), Robert Cuccioli (ESU Leader), Steven Taylor (ESU Officer), Andrea Frierson (Waitress), Joaquin Maceo Rosa (Thug), Marcella Lowery (Diner Patron #1), Raphael Nash Thompson (Diner Patron #2), Sandy Rosenberg (Diner Patron #3), and Jean Brassard (Sports Broadcaster).

“Over a Barrel” was written by Jeffrey Paul King and directed by Guy Ferland.

The CBS drama series “Elementary” stars Jonny Lee Miller as detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson in a modern-day drama about a crime-solving duo that cracks the NYPD’s most impossible cases.

Initially sober companion and client, their relationship evolved into a symbiotic professional investigative partnership. Holmes and Watson are the top homicide consultants for Captain Thomas Gregson and work regularly alongside Detective Marcus Bell, but their status with the force is revoked when Holmes assaults a former associate and suffers a relapse. Facing professional uncertainty, Sherlock and Joan are shocked by the arrival of Morland Holmes, Sherlock’s estranged father.

Morland orchestrates Sherlock and Joan’s reinstatement to the NYPD, but his ongoing presence in New York brings unsettling family secrets to the surface. While Sherlock reels from the revelation that his deceased mother was also an addict, Joan endures a family bombshell of her own when she learns of a younger half-sister she never knew existed.

When Sherlock, Joan and Morland form a tenuous alliance to find the perpetrator behind an assassination attempt on Morland’s life, they uncover a clandestine international crime organization once run by Sherlock’s former lover and nemesis, Moriarty. To save himself and Sherlock, Morland makes a secret power play that leaves him as the new head of the nefarious organization, and departs for London with plans to dismantle the syndicate from within.

“Elementary” stars Jonny Lee Miller (Sherlock Holmes), Lucy Liu (Joan Watson), Aidan Quinn (Captain Thomas Gregson), and Jon Michael Hill (Detective Marcus Bell).

“Elementary” is produced by CBS Television Studios. The series is executive produced by Rob Doherty, Carl Beverly, Sarah Timberman, John Polson, Robert Wolfe and Robert Goodman.
