Elementary fans can expect to see some emotional upheaval at the Brownstone when the series returns this Thursday on CBS.

“The Past is Parent” will see Holmes dealing with the (considerable) aftermath of last season’s finale in which he almost beat an addict to death, in addition to suffering a heroin relapse.

Now facing jail time for his actions, in addition to losing his standing with the NYPD, Sherlock resolves to see an unsuspecting Joan get full credit for a very public unsolved murder in the hope her success will get her, if not him, back in the department’s good graces, and allow her to continue to work in the field without him.

However, thrown into the mix this season is Sherlock’s mysterious father, Morland (recurring guest star John Noble), who arrives in New York only to blow off his meeting with his son at the last minute — much to Joan’s annoyance.

Will Morland’s presence in New York put additional pressure on Sherlock at a most delicate time? Will Joan discover that Sherlock’s last case is all for her? And is the NYPD really powerless to take any measures other than to fire Holmes and Watson?

Find out when Elementary returns Thursday Nov. 5 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT), on CBS.
