The New TV Spot for Sherlock
It’s been nearly two years since we’ve gotten a new episode of the BBC crime drama, Sherlock, and it sounds like a lot has been going on. Sherlock Holmes (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) has returned to a very different London. A London that seems to be riddled with crime. John has moved on from the apartment in which they shared, and he is also sporting a sleek mustache. I want to talk about something, though, so if you have not watched this show, stop reading this, go watch the first two seasons on the Netflix, and come back, because there will be spoilers from here on out. You have been warned.
Still with me? Ok.
At the end of season 2, Sherlock jumped off of a flipp’n building! That was the season finale, and we haven’t heard anything for 2 years! One might suspect that was the end to the Steven Moffat written television show, but some how, Steven “Heartless” Moffat found a way for Sherlock to survive. You watched the trailer already, yeah? He survived, if you haven’t watched it or figured it out. I, much like everyone else, am baffled as to how Moffat is going to write Sherlock into existence again, especially when John watched him jump.
Here’s my theory:
Sherlock is so clever that he knew the exact way to land on the concrete that would distribute the impact evenly across his body without killing him, but probably still rendering him unconscious. The only reason this might not work is because John is a doctor, so obviously he would have checked his vitals. Right? Surely watching his friend die wouldn’t impede his training. If he was still alive after he jumped, I suppose his time of death could have been called while he was in the ambulance or in the hospital, in which case he could have paid off the nurses and doctors and switched his body with Moriarty so Sherlock’s friends would have a body to put in the ground. Either way, we’ll find out more at the beginning of 2014. Oh, and keep an eye out for the mini episode online on Christmas. Hopefully they’ll…give us a clue. CCHHHEEEYYYEEEAAHHHH!!!! I’ll see myself out.
