While investigating a murder involving a one victim killed after eating sausages made from a second murder victim, the trail leads Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) to a cutting edge laboratory where the ground-up victim was working on perfecting a meat substitute. At first Sherlock believes that such a discovery, and its effect on the marketplace, may have gotten the man killed by a meat conglomerate (or “Big Meat” as Holmes takes to saying), however a second, more devious, motive is eventually uncovered.

Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) are called in to investigate a murder the detectives believe are tied to the public Internet beatings and shaming of pedophiles. Learning that their victim was the man responsible for creating fake profiles on dating websites and luring pedophiles into admitting their proclivities, the detectives turn their attention on the men who their victim shamed. What they discover is more complicated, however, as one of the men beaten and exposed by their victim was actually innocent. And the true reason for his murder came from an entirely different motive.

Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) investigate the murder of a mathmatician whose recent published work has thrown an entire industry into a tizzy. Usually using his skills to find sound investments for his firm, the victim (who ends up skewered to a wall) spent weeks on a scientific paper suggesting how the space community searches for and targets asteroids which could be potentially harmful to the Earth is wrong. While it will take nearly a decade to sort out the truth of the man’s work (which Holmes and Watson discovers may have ulterior motives) the detectives run in circles seeking someone who would have a legitimate motive for the man’s untimely demise.

There are two cases in the latest episode of Elementary to monopolize the time of Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu). The first involves a murder at a nudist camp which is somehow related to a week-old kidnapping case. And the second involves Holmes being hired by Gregson‘s (Aidan Quinn) girlfriend (Virginia Madsen) to look into chicanery at her doctor’s office. While the first proves to be the more difficult of the two cases to solve, it’s the second that allows Holmes to insinuate himself into the personal life of his Captain with unexpected results.

“A Difference In Kind” ends Elementary‘s Fourth Season on a bit of an anti-climactic note. Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) trace the bomb left in the brownstone to a rival (Roma Chugani) of Joshua Vikner (Tony Curran) within the remains of Moriarty‘s (Natalie Dormer) criminal empire. The cabal member will give given a look behind the curtain of the criminal empire thanks to the assistance of Morland Holmes (John Noble) who it turns out was the woman’s first choice for Moriarty’s replacement. More epilogue than climax, the episode features Holmes and Watson attempting to frame Vikner for a crime to remove him from office while Morland strikes a more permanent deal, both to save his son and cripple Moriarty’s network.

Another attempt on his father’s life confirms Sherlock Holmes‘ (Jonny Lee Miller) suspicions that the group responsible is the shadow organization once run by Jamie Moriarty (Natalie Dormer). Although Moriarty does not appear in the episode, in scouring through her possible former lieutenants Holmes and Watson come across mathematics professor Joshua Vikner (Tony Curran) who fits the more classic mold of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original Moriarty. Without incriminating himself, the man admits to Holmes and Watson his connection to Moriarty and her former organization as the episode offers a pair of scenes for the detective and the villain to discuss the situation in which they find themselves.

When Watson‘s (Lucy Liu) inside man turns up dead Morland Holmes (John Noble) becomes Sherlock Holmes‘ (Jonny Lee Miller) prime suspect. After fuming at Watson for keeping such a dangerous secret from him for weeks, Sherlock jumps into the case and, despite what he may wish to be true, quickly proves his father wasn’t behind the hiring of an amateur hitman (Yul Vazquez). The truth, however, will shock him as the show teases the possible return of a fan-favorite character in the season’s remaining two episodes.
