Guys, Elementary’s Irene Adler was a COMPLETE opposite of BBC’s Irene.
BBC Irene is first presented as this cunning, intelligent, independent and sexy woman who confused Sherlock with her nakedness. She ‘beat’ Sherlock and manipulated the Holmes brothers like a violin, proving herself their equal. But then we find out that all along she’d been with Moriarty as a semi-pawn, and all her planning had actually been Moriarty’s.
None of the genius was hers, she only got the information through her ~womanly wiles~ and required Moriarty to help her with her plans. So unhappy with how that turned out. Not to mention the very ick lesbian-cured-by-a-man bit, where her love for him betrays her in the most ridiculous way with the worst pun I’d ever heard (SHER-locked indeed, jesus fucking christ). The ending of course, as we all know, is her on her knees in some sandy supposedly Middle-Eastern nowhere, about to be beheaded of all things, and Sherlock swooping in to save the damsel. *SEVERE EYE ROLL*
BUT IN ELEMENTARY
Irene is first presented as a victim of Moriarty, a pawn of his that he manipulated to shatter Sherlock and destroy his morale. She has been mentally-fucked with, she is a shell of her former self, she is a woman without agency in this battle between two men. Then in a complete turnaround plot twist, it was Irene’s nakedness that betrayed her and gave Sherlock clarity to her real involvement with Moriarty, and later on, she IS Moriarty. All of Moriarty’s plans and genius and insidious intellect has been hers all along, and to quote “As if men had a monopoly on murder.” (you’re an evil bitch Irene, but goddamn I love you). And in the end she didn’t need rescuing by him, he needed rescuing from her by the lovely and incredibly talented Joan ‘Badass’ Watson.
It was JOAN that saw her weakness and took her down like a ton of bricks because NO ONE calls her a mascot and goddamn gets away with it. Oh and no one fucks with her BFF either. So yes, Elementary’s Irene was also in love with Sherlock, but their love made them weak for each other, almost a stalemate. It took Joan to break that unhealthy relationship and give Sherlock his life, and his focus, back to him.
Then he rightfully acknowledged Joan’s badassery by naming a bee after her. (And I think it’s Euglossa Watsonia. I know Sherlock said “Euglassia” but Euglossa is an actual bee type).
did you know that since 2000 there have been exactly two superhero movies made that focus on a female superhero and both were spin-offs from a movie about a male superhero
