ELEMENTARY 4×07 IMAGES: “Miss Taken”

Move over Morland Holmes. CBS’ Elementary is about to feature another Dad tinkering in the affairs of his child.

That’s right. January 7th’s episode of the sleuthing drama will see Joan’s Step Dad Henry gracing the scene.

And just as with Sherlock’s father Morland (John Noble), the encounter won’t be a happy one.

In “Miss Taken” Joan will discover that her stepfather (guest star John Heard) has written a crime novel based around her investigations with Sherlock — and all without her knowledge!

According to the latest from CBS, the revelation will expose “an underlying issue in their relationship.”

Elementary introduced Fringe and Sleepy Hollow alum John Noble as a series regular this season, as Morland Holmes, a character who had been alluded to from season one, but never seen, finally made his arrival in New York following Sherlock’s relapse into drug use.

While tensions between Morland and Sherlock remain high, recent episodes have seen Holmes snr. hinting to his son that their fractured relationship might one day be repaired.

However, December 17th’s “The Cost of Doing Business” gave the audience (if not Sherlock) a first look at Morland’s true nature as he threatened to have an opportunistic employee murdered following a botched blackmail bid. We get the feeling that not even Sherlock realizes how deep some of his father’s darker connections go.

Troublesome Dads aside, the Jan. 7 episode will find Holmes and Watson investigating the murder of a retired FBI agent whose death seems to be connected to an unsolved case from his career.

It’s all happening Thursday Jan. 7 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS.

But if you can’t wait that long, we’ve got first look images from the episode in our gallery below.
