An epic guest star is returning!
Game of Thrones standout Natalie Dormer is set to make her highly anticipated return to CBS' Elementary when the drama returns from its winter break on Thursday, Jan. 2.
And it seems Moriarty is just as deliciously nefarious as ever when Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) cross paths with the big bad when a young girl is kidnapped in New York City and our detective duo believes she's behind the abduction. We've got your exclusive first look at Dormer's return to the CBS hit drama, which includes her first interaction with Sherlock and Watson in quite some time...
OK, first things first: How calm, cool and badass does Moriarty look just reading her newspaper while being questioned by Sherlock and Watson?
Secondly, how much do you love Moriarty teasing Watson, showing off her portrait? Thirdly, how fun is it to watch Sherlock try to keep it together while in her presence? "If you do help us, I'll continue or correspondence for as long as you're incarcerated," Holmes offers when Moriarty isn't willing to give them any info. Her response? "You're going to do that anyway."
And prepare to see a lot more tension between Sherlock and Moriarty, as executive producer Rob Doherty told Entertainment Weekly, "People who have enjoyed the complicated relationship will not be disappointed. It remains as complicated as ever. It's very interesting for Sherlock to see her and be around her again."
Elementary returns Thursday, Jan. 2 on CBS.
