** In "Be My Guest" Sherlock goes after a man holding a woman captive without telling the police, saying they wouldn't have enough evidence to get a warrant. Which is not true, since he read the man's lips showing he was conspiring to have her murdered, and saw a photo of her on his phone with a chain around her neck. Based on his testimony, that would be more than enough for a warrant, which Sherlock being not only a highly knowledgeable genies but having worked with the police for years, should know by now.

* PositiveDiscrimination: In contrast to the first season, when Joan made mistakes while going out on her own as a detective, the second season saw Joan smoothly running through cases, matching and sometimes even surpassing Sherlock, and continuously calling out Sherlock while rarely making mistakes herself. This seems to be a combination of both PanderingToTheBase (for a fandom that idolizes Joan) and ConflictBall (since the plot demanded Joan and Sherlock have conflict incongruous with their behavior in the first season). No one's denying that Joan is extremely intelligent, but it's tedious to see such a well-developed character be reduced to "BadAss who takes no shit and never makes a mistake, ever" by fandom and writers alike. Thankfully, the third season dialed back down on this and Joan and her relationship with Sherlock have returned to form.

* GoodRunningEvil: In season four, [[spoiler:Morland ends up running Jamie Moriarty's criminal organization. Members of the organization, knowing his capabilities, had long wanted him to, so after Joshua Vikner is taken down he accepts their offer. Sherlock is disturbed by this, but Morland explains that taking charge of the organization is the best way of dismantling it. Morland can be ruthless and selfish, but he's not evil.]]

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Sherlock is shown as a quite sexually active man. Interestingly, Sherlock never shows romantic interest in Joan but instead prefers random, one-off encounters.

* LatexPerfection: {{Discussed}} in "Who is That Masked Man?" A killer wore latex masks to get close to his victims by pretending to be people they knew, but only in poor lighting conditions. Sherlock knew that the masks would fail on any close inspection, because he had tried the same thing back in London and failed spectacularly.

* MaleGaze: "You've Got Me, Who's Got You" opens with Sherlock forcing some members of Everyone to donate their clothes to a clothing drive Joan is participating in. This means literally the clothes they're wearing, making them disrobe there in the brownstone. There are several schlubby guys and one reasonably good-looking woman. No surprise who the camera focuses on.

* BikiniBar: In "Murder Ex Machina" Sherlock follows a lead to the standard kind of network TV strip club in which all the strippers are oddly overdressed. Somewhat averted, as the stripper he's come to interview is in the process of unhooking her bra when he tells her to stop.

* ARiddleWrappedInAMysteryInsideAnEnigma: Sherlock Holmes' description of [[spoiler: Moriarty]] from the episode "The Diabolical Kind".
--> '''Sherlock:''' The woman is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma I've had sex with. I would be lying if I said I was the strongest assessor of her motives at this point.
