Our work, what we do, it's not just a job now. It's who I am. I'm a detective. I'm ready to embrace that.
— Watson


  • Holmes mentions he used the alias Sigerson to entrap Ben Reynolds which is a reference to Conan Doyle's The Adventure of the Empty House in which Holmes travels in disguise as a Norwegian explorer and uses this name.


"No, the pleasure was mine and mine alone Marcus."
