jonny lee miller lucy liu elementary new york comic con It's 'Elementary': Sherlock's protege Kitty will cause problems for WatsonWhen “Elementary” returns later this month, the gang looks remarkably different. Not only is Sherlock off working for MI6, but Watson is handling NYPD cases solo and has her own place — check out photos of Watson’s apartment. Here are a few teases for the Season 3 premiere, titled “Enough Nemesis To Go Around.”

  • Luckily, Sherlock isn’t gone for long. But when he returns, he brings a new apprentice with him in the form of Kitty Winter (Ophelia Lovibond). She and Watson get off to a volatile start. Let’s just say they put one of Sherlock’s pet hobbies to the test right away.
  • There is also more to Kitty than meets the eye. The premiere doesn’t reveal much, but more information about her background is coming in episode 2. If you’re suspicious of her after the premiere, you’re on the right track.
  • Gina Gershon guest-stars as the criminal of the week, the “Country Club Capa” Allison March. She’s overtly threatening toward Joan, and the way they leave things at the end of the episode will make you wonder if this is the last viewers have seen of Allison.
  • There are new love interests afoot in the premiere. Joan has a meet-cute involving a lizard with her new boyfriend (Raza Jaffrey), while Sherlock realizes immediately upon returning to the precinct that Captain Gregson also has someone new in his life. Woo woo.
  • The heart of the show, the Watson-Holmes relationship, takes center stage in the premiere. They each have anger and feelings of abandonment toward the other after how they left things at the end of Season 2. Their issues will be dealt with throughout the beginning of the third season.

“Elementary” returns Thursday, Oct. 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
