wait no I thought they said Christmas 2014
I don’t get why people are so surprised and disappointed?
What did you expect?
You know, I know they all have very tight schedules but I’m really growing tired of this “waiting 2 years between each season”… Like, there is this quote “There was suddenly a kind of outraged response that it might not be back until 2016 but that’s precisely how long it always is. It’s always two years” [source] OF COURSE, there is an outraged response… This is a great TV show, with each season during 4h30, which is short and you make us wait two years each time…
Sorry for the little rant, I’m just getting a bit tired of this…
No but can you imagine how the discussion between Andrew Scott and Mofftis went?
"Okay, so we need you to come back for some smalls cameo."Okay! What will I do?"
"So in the first episode you kiss Benedict on a roof. And then we need you to act creepy and crazy in a cell and you will wear that straightjacket. Ah and also, your character comes back from the dead :D"
asked, "Hi ! Regarding your Sherlock post, I can't answer everything but I can try for two points! :) Mary couldn't kill Magnussen 'cause someone would then find the guy who taunted his husband and his best friend plus the best friend dead or at least shot and the suspicion would be on John. I think they say so in the episode but I'm not sure anymore? Also, Magnussen thinks he's all clever and you're right, no physical file whatsoever is stupid but 1. He's a public person, known to have stuff about (1/2"
"…a lot of influent people and all, shooting him would create a massive ruckus and there’ll be a scandal. He didn’t keep physical file so if the police came at his place they couldn’t find him in possession of sensible files. But I agree, would I have been him, I’d have kept files somewhere on a really nicely crypted PC or some physical files hold by an accomplice who would leak them when I die or something. Maybe he did it but I don’t think so ^_^ Hope I helped a bit ! :)"
I did ‘get’ that bit but my issue is that it only makes sense if she shoots Sherlock. Why didn’t she just NOT shoot Sherlock? Then they all escape however it is Mary herself escaped? I just don’t understand why Sherlock had to be shot at all. THAT is what made no sense to me. There was no good reason for her to shoot Sherlock because the ‘oh so there isn’t a witness’ thing is obviously not a reason if she doesn’t shoot to kill. And ‘so he doesn’t tell John’ was obviously NEVER going to work and she must have known that.
And for the Magnussen thing, he had information on apparently hundreds of people, minimum and none of them kill him? Okay, well I’m sure he didn’t tell everyone there was no real info. But as soon as he tells…one person who’s killed someone for the other before (John) and another person who doesn’t exactly work on the same morality plane as everyone else…
What kind of moron was he?
It was also just that I didn’t find him threatening at all, like ‘I’ll print nasty things in the papers’ seems a bit lame after Moriarty.
Yeah, I agree. Magnussen was a wasted opportunity imho. Could have been a good villain if he had had a bit more common sense…
Before the end of the episode and the “Missed me” part, I thought that he DID keep physical files that were so going to be leaked now that he was dead but it seems unlikely …
Like I said though, I understand why no one would kill him. Even if he says he has no physical files, why believe him? Plus, the whole media ruckus. “Media magnat blackmailing influent people killed” The inquiry is going to uncover the dirty little secrets you wanted hidden, so not a good idea I think.
About Mary killing Sherlock, got to admit I don’t know. I’m still hoping really hard she’s a true villain. As much as I love the “Moriarty lives” thingy, I’m persuaded it’s a “fake” video posted by Moran, to continue Moriarty big plan and I hope that Mary is Moran. Still, right why shooting Sherlock at all? I got no idea… She didn’t want him to die cause she called 999. Maybe a diversion so she could escape? Sherlock is incapacited, John is downstairs and when he’ll go upstairs cause gunshot, he’ll be too busy trying to save Sherlock to bother about who trying to find out where was the shooter atm?
