'Elementary' 3x10 'Seed Money' Gif-Tweet-Cap: Potman's Necklace

Elementary gives viewers the beginning of a scary two part story at the end of the episode "Seed Money." Yeah, lots of other stuff happens, but it's all about that shocking ending... which I'll talk about at the end of this recap. The following gifs are available on this Tumblr post, and the Baker Street Podcast I cohost is below. You can also subscribe to it on iTunes.

First of all, Kitty is at one of her help group meetings, and she has only good things to say about her life since Sherlock. One thing to note, however, is that she discusses that the plan was to move on at some point, but she's enjoying her life in New York.

She also ends up taking a case from someone in the group who is looking for her missing teen. The girl has just learned that she is the product of a rape, so Kitty immediately assumes that the girl is just a selfish brat who has run off and will return when she feels better.
Meanwhile, Sherlock and Watson are called on a case of a dead 80-yr-old couple. Turns out they were killed inadvertently as part of another murder involving poisonous gas that wafted through their vents. The man, Clay Dubrovensky, was apparently killed by a drug cartel with a petroleum tie necklace that had been lit on fire. Watson has quite a reaction as she imagines in her mind what Sherlock is talking about: the dead man she just saw had his head set on fire!
Clay's ex-girlfriend, Courtney, details how Clay was a marihuana "artist," hired by the drug cartel SDS. Nobody is certain why the cartel would want to kill their own pot grower/artist/engineer.
#NoShirtSherlock is the hashtag for the next scene, as Sherlock hangs upside down, studying an upside-down Wall of Evidence in one of his odd attempts to think more efficiently about the case. No further comment is required.
Yay! Sherlock will never fall off the wagon, now that he can break into Watson's home anytime he wishes in order to wake her in creative ways. He gets his daily dose of entertainment, and she gets a smoothie. Plus, we all know how much she secretly enjoys the attention, based on the fact that she did not murder him.
Sherlock is there to show Watson some newly-found evidence, tying Clay to a Residence in a Russian community. He also wants to know why Watson has been acting as if she wants to tell him something. She does: she's closing her P.I. business to go work for... an insurance company?! At least she will have an outlet for the boring side of her brain, and assures Sherlock that it will not change the amount of work they do together for the department.
At Clay's residential pot-growing factory, all the plants are dying, which means that the cartel wouldn't have committed the murder. They must not even know that he's dead! But, Sherlock notices the rarest flower in the world, worth $250,000, just sitting there next to the pot. This stolen flower is his new focus... very close focus. Sherlock truly loves an extraordinary flower. Such a thing of beauty is worth very close study.
Sherlock and Watson soon find a listing Clay had created a black market listing for the rare orchid, as well as the buyer, Barbara Conway. Sherlock hates her right away, because she works for an agricultural company that is responsible for killing all those bees. Unfortunately, she has the flower in her possession, and insists that it was thrown in for free with a piece of furniture. And she has it!
Sherlock soon discovers that both flowers are clones of the original, and then there are two more "necklace" murders, with the bodies laid out at Barbara's company. She finally confessed to buying the flower, but says that it only made her want to hire Clay, not kill him. Then she goes on with a ridiculous story of negotiating to hire Clay from the cartel. Sherlock thinks it's hilarious, although he doesn't show it.
Later, Kitty finds the runaway because she shares a malformed thumb with her rapist father, and convinces her that she shouldn't be upset with her mom. Kitty is happy to help, but she's taken a bit off guard by spontaneous hugging. Eventually, however, she opens those fits to give Tess a little pat.
Sherlock finally tells Watson about how he is planning on telling Kitty that she is ready to move on to the next phase, and become his partner in crime-solving! Watson seems a little upset for a moment, then seems to be happy about it.
The cops find the guy who murdered the two people linked with the company by looking at surveillance for the person who bought special ropes that were used to bound them. But he insists he didn't kill Clay.

Nope, Watson gets lucky with a meeting with Clay's ex-girlfriend, who just happens to use special food for a flower that Clay gave to all his girlfriends. Barbara had given Sherlock and Watson some of that same food by accident, meaning that Barbara was seeing Clay. Yep, she killed him because he had started sleeping with his ex again. Yep. Sort of a dud of an episode.
Until... the very end, where we see that the man who hurt Kitty is in town, and has killed a woman and left her body as a calling card to let Sherlock know that he's there! This will lead to a two-part episode!
