The Holmes family is back! Netflix has just released a new trailer for Enola Holmes 2 that fully introduces us to Enola’s struggle to make a name for herself in a world of men. Ready?
Here we go!
“Don’t fight so hard to prove yourself, Enola” Those words can only come from the mouth of a man who didn’t have to fight to be valued. But Enola is a woman who moves in a world of men and she must do her best to prove to herself and to everyone that she is where she belongs and that she has found her place in the world. No one trusts her to get it too much, so Enola has to trust herself.
In Enola Holmes 2, a new case leads Enola to the Lyon Match Factory, where one of the city’s match girls has mysteriously disappeared. While the girl’s peers are skeptical of this seemingly posh detective searching for their friend, Enola quickly teaches them that, posh or not, she’s certainly good at fighting and solving mysteries.
At the same time, her brother Sherlock works on an independent case while he tries to keep an eye on her sister so that she is not in danger. However, danger is part of detective life and Sherlock must learn to trust Enola to defend herself. Because, for God’s sake, she knows how to fight.
That said, the lesson Enola needs to learn is that she is not alone. “Work with them and you will become more of who you are,” her mother tells Enola in the trailer. Aside from Sherlock, that also includes asking her old pal Lord Tewkesbury for help — but she implores him not to make her repeat it. Which gives us content from our favorite ship and we love it!
Sometimes living in a man’s world means twisting their rules at your convenience and there is no one who does it better than Enola.
