Where are the spoilers? I need some. Get me some!!!

(Anonymous) 2013-12-15 06:27 pm (UTC)(link)
I wasn't there, but apparently there are John/Sherlock moments, there are Sherlock/Moriarty moments and there is Anderson and...
I want to know.

Is the bonfire scene where Sherlock pulls John out still there?!!!

What have been revealed so far...

(Anonymous) 2013-12-15 06:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Not much, unfortunately. Here's what we have:

People seem very secretive this time around, but here's a summary of what I found.

- There's more Anderson than normal.
- The reunion is funny, sad, and then funny again.
- There's a nod to the "Sherlock Lives" movement.
- We find out how Sherlock did it, but apparently it isn't crystal clear.
- There are a lot of Sherlock/John moments.
- Molly has a bigger role than in previous episodes.
- There are terrorists, and they're not portrayed in a gross or racist way.
- Mary is sweet and funny.
- One of the best moments of the episode will delight Sherlock/Moriarty fans.
- Mary doesn't like John's facial hair! (Bit of script here:
- Moriarty is dead, but figures in the episode.
- Sherlock and John don't hug, but there's a big moment between the two that's really sweet.
- Molly doesn't date Sherlock.
- Someone (not John) hugs Sherlock.
- There are terribly sad and heart-wrenching moments.

- Mycroft gets a little more background and character development.
- Kitty Riley isn't in the episode.
- Donovan isn't in the episode.
- Sherlock doesn't personally tell John why he did it, but it's mentioned in the episode.
- Lestrade isn't in the episode a lot, but he's there a good few times.
- Sherlock has changed his attitude a lot towards Molly.

- There's a possibility that Mary and Sherlock will become friends.
- John perhaps forgives Sherlock (oh god, these vague answers are killing me).
- We don't see a lot of Jim, but he has the best moment.
- The reunion scene is a little quick and it feels like Sherlock doesn't get the effect his death had on John.
- Mrs Hudson has felt isolated from John for the past two years. Sad moment ahead.
- Irene isn't mentioned.
- There is beautiful Sherlock/John/Mary OT3 material.

THANK YOU! /hugs

(Anonymous) 2013-12-15 08:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Thanks for posting! Can't wait for more details on this!

(Also I was kinda expecting them to keep it rather vague how Sherlock did it. It's not very clear in the original books either and the bit we got didn't make much sense to me.. lol)

How he did it?

(Anonymous) 2013-12-15 08:49 pm (UTC)(link)

Can anyone confirm if that's how Sherlock did it?

Re: What have been revealed so far...

(Anonymous) 2013-12-15 08:50 pm (UTC)(link)
- While Molly and Sherlock have great scenes together, they don't compare to the S&J scenes.
- Bit of dialogue:
- We don't find out who theimprobableone is.
- The episode will have us on the edge of our seat.
- John doesn't deal overly well with Sherlock being alive.
- The reunion between Sherlock and Mrs H goes exactly how the trailer showed it.

The bit we got? Did I miss something?

(Anonymous) 2013-12-15 08:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Heya mods! Thank you for making this post. All we need now is someone to get into details and spoil everything.


This isn't a spoiler, but I've seen a lot of questions about the whole Caitlin Moran made Benedict and Martin read fanfic incident. Saw this and I thought people would be interested.

LOL, it was on Twitter earlier and I asked Thewalkingassbutt on tumblr if the tea was part of the solution and she said no.

So glad it's not how he did it, the radioactive eyes were too much for me.

- We don't learn why Sherlock had to make John believe he was a fraud.
- There is a bonfire involved.
- Sherlock doesn't seem cold. He's more human than ever before.
- The tea Sherlock and Moriarty drink have nothing to do with how Sherlock faked his death.
- Sherlock gets hit a lot.
- There are a lot of twists in the beginning that don't affect the storyline. There's a big, kinds funny twist towards the end.
- John's face, Lestrade turning around, and Mrs Hudson yelling are actually part of the reunions.
- Bit of Molly dialogue:
- John/Mary dialogue:

- Apparently, Gatiss and Moffat have obviously been reading tumblr.
- The Sherlock&Moriarty bit doesn't include any dialogue.
- Sherlock and Molly have scenes on their own. Together.

It would explain why he was crying. I'd cry, too, if my eyes were melting.

You're my favorite person on the internet! Have some cookies!

I'm very excited to see a more human Sherlock, but at the same time I'm nervous. The last thing this Sherlock needs if more woobie!Sherlock.

Cry for Help!

(Anonymous) 2013-12-22 06:27 am (UTC)(link)
Mycroft fan posting a cry for help for a sort of confirmation spoiler. In the BBC trailer, where Sherlock says the one person he thought I cared the least about, is the one person who mattered the most, something along those lines-is the identity of that person revealed in the episode? Cause it doesn't sound like it was describing John-I'm hoping for Mycroft of course, but it was probably John or Molly-confirm, pretty please?

Re: Cry for Help!

(Anonymous) 2013-12-24 11:33 pm (UTC)(link)
TheWalkingAssButt says it was Molly.

But don't worry anon, the episode starts with Hero!Mycroft sweeping in to save Sherlock apparently. ^_^

As someone who sat a few seats away from Benedict and thus got a nice Cumberbatch laugh track to go with the screening (thank you, gods of fangirls and other crazies) I can say that the Moriarty scene got the most Cumberlaughter...

Does Sherlock kiss anyone? Or get kissed?

Hi! Everyone's commenting on how Gatiss and Moffat have been obviously reading Tumblr, and I remember a reporter back when they were filming saying he had no idea what the parts he saw being filmed were about -- I was hoping this meant a Sherlock liplock with a guy would be worked into the series. Not as in a love interest, more like as cover or something like that. Does Sherlock get kissed/kiss anyone?

I wouldn't say that there's full out snogging, but there is a rather passionate moment going on...

Re: Does Sherlock kiss anyone? Or get kissed?

[identity profile] 2013-12-26 08:43 am (UTC)(link)
Um... First of all, thanks so much for replying -- I'm guessing if you felt comfortable saying more you would've and I hate to be a nuisance. Just in case though: Spoilers are always welcome in my inbox, if that's okay with you. If not, thanks all the same for taking the time to reply. Oh God January 1st can't get here fast enough!

Not the same anon. I didn't see the episode, but I've read a complete/detailed report from someone who did. They didn't like the episode at all (in short, they said it felt like a bad, cheap comedy, some parts they were looking forward to were huge let downs) so maybe they were a bit biased when they told me about it, but from what I can remember: Sherlock and Molly share a ~*passionate*~ kiss (you actually see it onscreen) and then... I'm a little confused about that one. I /think/ Sherlock and Moriarty giggle (on the roof?) and shit, then they kiss, but oh, this time for some reasons you don't see them. Anyway, those kisses are all part of 'How did he survive?' theories Anderson has been coming up with, so I assume we're supposed to laugh at them.

Oh thank you so much for sharing this! I honestly don't know how I'm going to survive the first episode -- it's a good thing I'm already apprehensive enough about the whole third season. I love and miss Sherlock terribly and I can't wait to see Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock again, but this particular season... Thanks so much for sharing so generously!

Re: Does Sherlock kiss anyone? Or get kissed?

(Anonymous) 2013-12-27 09:27 am (UTC)(link)
Original anon here (Hiiiiii...)

So. What's with this season that makes you apprehensive? I can of course only speak for the first ep (and yeah, it isn't my favourite one by a long shot, but I think that's more down to the editing - the thing that scared me the most about series three was if the John/Sherlock reunion would feel "off", and I can honestly say that that part Gatiss handled brilliantly!!) but if there's anything you want to know about that - and it isn't "too" spoilery (I am a big fan of spoilers myself, but some of the gags I don't think I could make justice of and I wouldn't have wanted to know them going in) just ask and I'll see if I can answer.

(Also, I'm quite looking forward to seeing the ep again with the knowledge that it's kind of episodic, and that the editing will give me whiplash trying to follow it - 'cause there really are a lot of the very good Sherlock stuff in there too!! Just think of it as this series weak ep. Hopefully Thompson will give us another ep of Fall class, and then Moffat will rip all our hearts out and tap dance all over them. But in a good way... :) )
