Entertainment Weekly – The new year is going to bring Sherlock and Joan face-to-face with an old foe — Natalie Dormer’s Moriarty, seen above in a photo you’re seeing first on EW.com. But what brings the trio together again in the episode, which airs Jan. 2? We hopped on the phone with executive producer Rob Doherty to get the scoop.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Set up the episode for us. DOHERTY: A young girl is kidnapped in New York City, and Sherlock and Joan come to believe that Moriarty may have orchestrated the abduction, which is a tad confusing since she’s been in federal custody for several months now. So in the episode, they seek her out and she becomes something of a participant into the investigation into the kidnapping. EW: Moriarty’s presence always brings up complicated feelings for Sherlock. How does that manifest in the episode? People who have enjoyed the complicated relationship will not be disappointed. It remains as complicated as ever. It’s very interesting for Sherlock to see her and be around her again. And it’s, of course, not just about how it lands on Sherlock but Joan as well, given that Joan played such a major role in Moriarty’s takedown at the end of the first season. There’s plenty of unfinished business between those, so we single those two out for a little alone time over the course of the episode.

It has finally been confirmed that Natalie will repise her role in season 2 of Elementary! Access Hollywood reports the below;

“Game of Thrones” star Natalie Dormer will return to the CBS series “Elementary.”

The announcement that the actress would be back on the Sherlock Holmes drama, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu, was made at PaleyFest in New York City on Saturday night.

Natalie has a dual role on the show. In the past, she played Sherlock’s love interest Irene Adler. But, in the double-episode Season 1 finale, it was revealed that she is actually Moriarty, Sherlock’s greatest enemy.

When asked about the possibility of returning to the show back in May by Access Hollywood, when the “Elementary” cast were prepping to shoot the Season 2 premiere in London, Natalie said she would be up for coming back.

“All I can say is I am on this side of the Atlantic. I have to be because of ‘Thrones.’ Shooting on ‘Thrones’ begins in July, but it’s serendipity that I’m on the right side of the Atlantic in case Rob [Doherty, the show’s executive producer] wanted to use me again. So, who knows? I can’t say enough positive things about how much I enjoyed being a part of the ‘Elementary’ family for the time that I was. So, I would always be open to the idea of working with that fantastic cast and with Rob again, definitely.”

Natalie has recently been interviewed by Access Hollywood about her role in Elementary.

Jonny Lee Miller’s Sherlock Holmes was left devastated in last week’s “Elementary” by the revelation that the woman he has been grieving, and whose death lead him spiraling down the path of addiction — Irene Adler — is actually alive.

And Natalie Dormer, who continues her arc as Irene in the two-hour Season 1 finale tonight, can actually credit her duties as a member of the “Game of Thrones” cast for helping introduce her to the CBS drama — something that happened at the perfect time.

“It was like serendipity because I’d seen the show on the transatlantic flight. … I was skimming through all the different TV shows when I was flying over to do ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 3 press, “ Natalie explained to AccessHollywood.com about how she first became familiar with the “Elementary” take on Sherlock Holmes, shortly before being asked to meet with the show’s Executive Producer, Robert Doherty.

TV Guide have a new interview with Natalie in which she chats about her character Irene Adler and what we can expect from the season finale of Elementary!

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Thursday’s episode of Elementary. Read at your own risk!]

Tell us about this version of Irene Adler and how you play her.
Natalie Dormer: When I went into the meeting with [executive producer] Rob Doherty to talk about playing her, we talked about how you have to choose an angle at how to play Irene depending on who your Sherlock is. The wonderful thing about the way Rob writes Elementary is that Sherlock has this issue of his addiction and this darkness and this vulnerability that he has due to being an addict. You could argue it’s a nice nod to the Arthur Conan Doyle novels in a way that other incarnations of modern-day Sherlocks don’t actually pick up on. So for me and Rob to have a conversation on how to tackle Irene, you’re very much aware that Irene Adler has to be the woman, the only woman who has ever gotten under the skin or close to — to terrorize or to invigorate — Sherlock. She’s intelligent, fiery, and Rob said she’s got a bit of the devil in her. She’s a nice yin to Sherlock’s yang. She’s stimulates him mentally as well as other areas, as we all know that’s what Sherlock responds to: being challenged and stimulated mentally. She’s a good foil. She makes him feel alive and feel human.
