Re: An Elementary theory
Irene is a good suspect for Moriarty, I was thinking the same thing after the latest episode.
What about Captain Gregson? Remember he was also in London for a period of time and only recently returned to New York, mirroring Moriarty's activity.
That's a thought about Irene. I wouldn't be surprised to learn she thought Holmes was dead, or was targeted by Moriarty, and faked her death to protect Holmes, whether on her own or at the urging of Moriarty. Gregson, could be, I think his offering Watson a job as a sober companion is a red herring to get the audience to think there could be a connection. My money is on Mrs Hudson as Moriarty. Or Joan, herself, that would be unexpected.
