Perhaps it’s no wonder that Oscar didn’t behave like a human being. This week he was addiction personified, a demonic, selfish presence in a filthy coat, like that dead-eyed photo of Alfredo in his using days.He taunted and tempted, stringing Sherlock along on a dead goose chase and callously using his own sister’s cadaver as bait, all in an attempt to push him off the wagon.Only if he’d appeared as a cartoon devil on Sherlock’s shoulder could the characterisation have been any less subtle.
It was complex, bleak stuff for a show usually so reliant on eccentricity and silliness.
To call it an anti-climax isn't to say there wasn’t drama leading up to the relapse itself.
There was plenty, though unfortunately, it was so contrived as to be largely meaningless.
The notion that an addict like Oscar would concoct such a scheme to trick Sherlock and bring him down to his level is a ludicrous one.
The show would have us believe that Oscar discovered his little sister’s corpse and, instead of calling a coroner or exhibiting any signs of grief, immediately embarked on a complex plan involving kidnapping at gunpoint, blackmail, and trips to a rehab facility, drug den and the home of a notorious sex attacker, all to knock a former shooting buddy off his sober pedestal?
That’s insane, even bearing in mind the animosity between him and Sherlock, or that junkies don’t tend to be the greatest decision-makers.
Usually, is a show that thrives on the ludicrous, but only as the entertaining trappings of an investigation.
Until now, it’s done well to separate its outlandish case elements from its sincere character moments (Watson’s schizophrenic homeless biological dad—whatever happened to him? This week merged the two in a deeply unsatisfying way.
