They are the top homicide consultants for Captain Thomas Gregson and work regularly alongside Detective Marcus Bell.

The assault caused Holmes to suffer memory loss and hallucinations, a secret which compromises his work and relationship with Watson, and forces him to seek neurological help. Holmes copes with his health crisis by refocusing on his sobriety and discovers a new ally in Michael, a fellow addict who once found the strength to stay sober from Sherlock’s own words in past meetings. As Holmes struggles with uncharacteristic vulnerability, he fights to salvage his career and his friendship with Watson, which he values above all else.
