Holmes and Watson discover they need to solve more than just a murder in Elementary’s second episode this season.

The October 3rd “Solve for X” sees the pair not just investigating the murder of a well-respected mathematician, but the purpose of a highly guarded equation he was trying to decipher. This may prove to be a case of solve the equation, solve the investigation.

Meanwhile, Joan has troubles of her own to deal with when the son of a former patient approaches her for a loan.

“Solve for X” airs Thursday October 3rd (10:01 – 11:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS.

The episode sees Jeremy Jordan guest starring as Joey Castoro, the son of Watson’s former patient.
