Season 1 of Elementary surprised us — it felt delightfully fresh, and we quickly grew enamored with Sherlock and Hudson’s chemistry. “The Woman”/”Heroine” was a lovely ode to their relationship, and proved to have fun twists (including a jaw-dropping gender switch to Holmes’ greatest nemesis) and an excellent bee-naming scene.

Really briefly: I love that Elementary is so casual about Miss Hudson being a transgender woman. [There is only one] reference to it, and after this she’s just cheerfully accepted for who she is. She’s being played by Candis Cayne, who is also a transgender woman. I think the acceptance being shown here is a really important moment for television, but I also think that what’s so important about it is how little importance the show itself is putting on the moment, if you see what I mean. So I wanted to point it out, but I also don’t want to dwell on it. Because from now on, she’s just Miss Hudson.

I like it. There’s a chance that Holmes is here because of jealousy, but I like to think he’s just honestly trying to show support for a fellow addict.
