When Holmes shows Watson how to sidestep someone wielding a long knife. Watson lunges at Holmes and the knife goes flying, landing on a piece of meat the maid has just brought in... What the Hell, man?!
Then, our guys get a tip, they go to the Hare And Eagle Tavern for some answers.
So tricky!.. Holmes and Watson listen in to Professor Moriarty's conversation with a criminal through a broken vent. Watson makes some noise though, and Moriarty has a feeling it's Holmes and crew.
