Elementary Season 6 Episode 4 Review: Our Time is Up

Sometimes it helps to go light on the ongoing storylines and heavier on the case of the week. This time, the case was personal for Joan on Elementary Season 6 Episode 4 .

But she was a cosmologist and the husband wasn't slain by the Big Bang but an experimental lightning gun. Also, she was having dinner with her cosmologist lover at the time, so she was quickly cleared.   ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/05/elementary-season-6-episode-2-review-once-youve-ruled-out-god/
