One of the running themes of Elementary is the deconstruction of Sherlock Holmes as the solitary, antisocial genius, and his becoming a member of a community.You see Joan patronizing Sherlock. I see a member of Sherlock’s community teaching him how to behave like an adult member of that community. http://imaginal.tumblr.com/post/161320646624
