Kensi: I can say touché if I want.
Deeks: Yeah, you can say it, but it doesn’t make any sense. If I say something and you say something witty in return, which by the way is highly unlikely, let’s just say for the sake of argument you do, probably by accident, then and only then would I say “touché”.
Kensi: Yeah, see I just think you’re mad I beat you to it.
Deeks: That’s not how it works, only the person being bested can say touché. You know what, let me just drop some knowledge on you for a second alright. It’s French, it comes from fencing, it means “to touch”. So if I were to touch you with my sword then you would say “touché”.
Kensi: Then I wouldn’t say it, because you ain’t never touching me with your sword, Zorro.
Deeks: Wow, that just happened.
You know, she solved you. The mascot.
Are we going to talk about the fact that Joan has discussed that conversation with him?
We know she was angry and kept it all bottled up in the restaurant but when she finally got back to Sherlock she must have let loose about what Moriarty said. I’m guessing we caught the end of it in Gregson’s office.
I think she was especially mad about being called a mascot; that’s why he picks up on it in his confrontation with Moriarty, because it upset Joan the most, so he takes the thing that hurt her and throws it back in Moriarty’s face to prove Joan’s power, to use the insult as a tool of Joan’s power.
In writing everything is done with a purpose; there are no accidents. “The Mascot.” is it’s own sentence to truely emphasise Joan’s place in this world, because if you’ve made it through 24 episodes and still think Joan Watson is a sidekick, this scene proves you very much wrong.
This one line takes Sherlock and Joan’s equality and brands it into the very heart of the show: In Elementary, there’s no such thing as a sidekick.
