Elementary returns to its second-favorite theme in a spotlight episode for Detective Bell. I’ve been asking for more Bell and Gregson, and tonight, Elementary at least gave us more Bell. That’s probably the best thing that can be said of “The Best Way Out Is Always Through”: It delivered some real substance for one of the characters Elementary has been short-shrifting, of late.
