"Dead Clade Walking" is the fourteenth episode of season two of Elementary. It first aired on CBS on 30 January, 2014.


While investigating one of Sherlock's cold cases, Joan discovers an out-of-place rock in the garden of a murder victim. Joan enlists a geologist to study the rock and they learn it houses a complete dinosaur fossil. The rock is later stolen from the police evidence room. Tracking down a known smuggler, Sherlock and Joan discover the smuggler murdered and the fossil destroyed. They eventually expose the curator of a natural history museum committed the murders to hide the proof of a scientific theory that would have cost him and his mentor their legacies. Meanwhile, Sherlock has his hands full as a sponsor when Randy's addict girlfriend turns back up in his life.
