Last summer at the San Diego Comic Con, the following video was shown:
As you can see, the survival of the fall was “explained.”
We Sherlock fans are one of the most patient fan groups on the planet. Okay, maybe patient is the wrong word, but it’s pretty amazing how long we will wait for the next three episodes. And was the wait worth it?
Oh, yes! (Imagine I said that in my best David Tennant impression.)
So, here is what I loved:
-The humor. This was definitely the funniest Sherlock I’ve ever seen.
-Mary. I wasn’t sure if I’d like her, but it was instant love. She’s such a good fit with both John and Sherlock. Also, I think it’s really cool that she’s Martin Freeman’s wife in real life.
-Molly. Awe, all the Molly kisses! I’ve always loved Molly, mostly because she’s so sweet and always seems to pick the wrong guy. (Side note: Is her new guy gay, or was there something I was missing? I just assumed he was, and it was a moment they were using to show how much Sherlock had changed since he called Moriarty out when the creep was with Molly.)
-The scenes where Sherlock is going to his friends so they know he’s alive.
-Trading out a menu for an identical menu.
One final thought; can someone explain to me what was going on when there was the flash and then Sherlock was explaining how he survived to Anderson? Was this something he was telling John, and we were just seeing what Sherlock was remembering? I’m used to the show being a bit trippy. It’s something I genuinely enjoy about the show, but I am genuinely confused about what was happening.
P.S. On a completely different note, can someone please give Joanne Froggatt all the awards for the brilliant job she’s doing with her role as Anna on Downton? She’s been absolutely brilliant, and had me in tears.
I assumed everyone was thrown off by Molly’s boyfriend because he looked and dressed a lot like Sherlock. The flash to explanation I assumed was a flashback in the midst of sheer locks brain where he had a fleeting thought of telling John how he survived before they “died”. But apparently I’m used to trippy because I didn’t think much of it!
Great episode. Loved it. Though I thought the carriage blowing up parliament on Guy Fawkes Day was a little too much V for Vendetta.
