I can't believe there isn't a thread dedicated to this show, so here goes. Due to the nature of the episodes, it's probably best to discuss anything about Season 4 under a spoiler. There has been enough time since Seasons 1-3 and the Christmas special to talk about them openly. General thoughts before I get into the newest episodes: DI Greg Lestrade is one of my favorite characters No really, I'm super into Lestrade, both his character, and the fact that he's played by Rupert Graves I love him so much Anyways.... I really enjoy Moriarty, and I like that he was/is able to get under my skin A Scandal in Belgravia is probably a favorite episode of mine. I know it gets some flak, but I really liked Irene Adler The Christmas special let me down. I liked what they were doing with the 'original' Sherlock Holmes ideas, but I wasn't crazy about how it was just a trip to Sherlock's mind palace. Okay, now on to the new stuff Spoiler: Season 4 I'm not a fan of how they killed Mary. I've read the stories, so I knew that she was going to die, but it felt cheap. I just thought that in general, The Six Thatchers was a little bit of a mess (though Lestrade was there quite a bit) The Lying Detective, IMO, was much better Toby Jones creeps me out in nearly all of his roles, so he did a spectacular job with that in this epiosde I genuinely thought that Eurus was Moriarty in heavy prosthetics and a wig for a hot second Seriously, did not see that ending coming, the actress playing Eurus/Faith/E is great I am almost positive that Sherrinford is a place, not a person... ... like a prison... ... That is housing Moriarty (I think he's coming back in the next episode!) However, Moriarty being alive does complicate the Holmes Bros relationship. Sherlock is convinced Moriarty is dead (per the Christmas special). If he's alive, that's something that Mycroft has been keeping from Sherlock. I was freaking out about the text noise from Sherlock's phone. Irene come back!!! Yes I do miss you, come back to the show, be alive or something.
