The last John&Sherlock moments of each episode
But that wasn’t the end of Sir Boast-a-lot’s problem.
No. That wasn’t the Final Problem.
You must find him guilty.
My friends and I have recreate one for the best scenes from BBC’s Sherlock using peeps for you view pleasure.

[Background: Lazarus was a lie, including the part about the Holmes brothers being ten steps ahead of Jim the whole time. Also, Jim’s still dead. And a lot of this will be very recappy if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, but I need cleaner theory reference posts so…]
Once upon a time…
Irene: I had all this stuff and never knew what to do with it.
…poor Irene had tons of secret stuff on her camera phone, but wasn’t sure how to use it. (THIS IS THE PART WHERE I JUST BREEZE ON BY AND COMPLETELY IGNORE THE SEXISM QUESTION FOR NOW, IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING.) Luckily, help was on the way!
Irene: Thank God for the consultant criminal.
Meanwhile, that very consulting criminal was at a swimming pool.

Some things never change.
The Reichenbach Fall: “I can’t just turn it on and off like a tap.”
The Sign of Three: But the stuff on tap can turn it off.
[This post is going to be more of a sketch than anything, because I’m chasing an elephant right now and I’ll never catch it if I get sidetracked with detailed debate over what I fully acknowledge is a beloved theory for some people. No matter how many words I spill, those of you who already agree with me about this issue will probably continue to do so and those of you who disagree will also stay the course. So this is only an outline of where I’m coming from for those of you who have never thought about the subject before, because you need to know my opinion before we go to the next theory stepping stones.]
By now we’ve established that I think the Lazarus solution (the explanation Sherlock gave Anderson for how he survived the fall) was a lie.
I don’t think all of it was a lie, though. The writers had to include some bits of truth to make it plausible. And there are certain aspects of Lazarus that they didn’t inject any glaring continuity errors into (such as the squash ball, the Homeless Network, and the biker), so those probably were real parts of the solution.
The thing where everything leading up to the fall was the result of a plan by the Holmes brothers, though? I think that was absolutely one of the lies.
- Moriarty: *shoots himself in the mouth*
- Moriarty: Oh FUCK. I swallowed the bullet. Goddammit! I swallowed the bullet
- Moriarty: Fuck this Sherlock, I think you have to take me downstairs
- Moriarty: This is why you chose the roof of a damn hospital didn't you? You KNEW this would happen to me
- Moriarty: Oh wait, isn't there a thing that gun stays in your body for 7 years and then passes naturally?
- Moriarty: Wait... that's gum isn't it.
- Moriarty: Sherlock?
- (looks over the wall)
- Moriarty: Oh shit he really did it.
Sherlock + Full body
Neville Kidd was the Director of Photography on His Last Vow. So Yeah. He Knows.
So that’s how he actually did Reichenbach.
Sherlock seems to be looking for a new interior.
