Maybe he felt so elated about the case solved..? And the wedding business being finally (almost) brought to an successful end? So elated he actually wanted a dance.. with a girl.. in the middle of being downed by the prospect of losing John to his new family? Idk.. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/confused.png

Re: Thoughts about series 3 as a whole

I do feel Sherlock is very conflicted.
He approves of Mary and accepts he has to let John go to her.
But he misses John and is friendly with Janine because well...he hasn't anybody else.
But then even she is snapped up, too.
He's destined to be alone...

Re: Thoughts about series 3 as a whole

I did not know where to put this but I think this thread might work. This is a screenshot from Sherlock Uncovered - Villains, to be found on the series 3 blu-ray. 

http://i760.photobucket.com/albums/xx241/SusiGo/tumblr_obz3xz2M001vwhn9jo1_540_zpstdtxkeov.png


This is incredible for a lot of reasons:
- cigarette holes in a wedding invitation
- the wilted flower seems to be from Sherlock's wedding bouquet
- the odd webpage with the Appledore roof construction, Canon name Milverton over Mary's face
- the text under the wedding pic: “Are recently married couple John and Mary Watson (nee Morstan) really the match made in heaven we’ve all been to believe…?”

So they seem to be hiding clues in the extras. Until someone finds them two and half years later. Btw, not me but @221bgay on tumblr.

Re: Thoughts about series 3 as a whole

That IS very odd. It does seem a bit too obvious, though, as a hint? Too much in the open?

As I said, this has never been discussed anywhere since 2014. At least not on tumblr or in here. Not so obvious, if you ask me.

Fans are rarely that lazy... What does the clip say, the one on the upmost left that we only see partly?

Re: Thoughts about series 3 as a whole

I think it was something about TGG but I am not sure. If I find the time, I will have a look myself. But I cannot make a screenshot since my computer does not play Blu-Rays.

Re: Thoughts about series 3 as a whole

Mine neither. I could take a pic with my mobile from my tv, but that would have to wait until Thursday-ish. Someone will probably do it before that.

Re: Thoughts about series 3 as a whole

Here is some additional information by the person who posted this:

I’m seeing a lot of confusion, and maybe I should have been more clear when I posted this. This is a screenshot from Sherlock Uncovered: Episode 3, The Villains. This is a part of series 3 on Netflix in the US, so it is official. HOWEVER, I’m not sure who produced it or how much creative say Moffat and Gatiss had in it. This is the opening sequence for Mary’s section of the Villain episode (which is telling in and of itself). All that being said- this is not a real set/real props from the show; Sherlock certainly never had Milverton crossed out over a picture of Mary (Milverton is CAM’s name in ACD canon), and potentially never burned his wedding invite or left his boutonnière out to rot. It’s also unlikely that in canon, a gossip blog blogged about the Watsons. I assume these are more easter eggs than anything else, but keep in mind that anyone could’ve designed this, and TPTB may have had little to do with it. My best guess is that someone in production designed it, and either Mofftis or Sue or another producer signed off on it. I think it’s inline with their vision for the show and characters, but it’s not 100% reliable and definitely not canon that Sherlock assembled this wall. Feel free to have a different outlook on this- it’s just my best guess for how seriously we should take this.

Re: Thoughts about series 3 as a whole

Interesting, and thanks for the information.   I may be remembering wrong, but I think Sherlock threw his buttonhole, and Janine caught it, so he didn't leave it out (that we know).  I suspect that it might be supposed to be clues for HLV instead, where Mary is revealed as a villain (temporarily at least), with Milverton meaning Magnussen, etc., especially if this section is about Mary in S3.   I haven't watched it for a while - will watch it again if I get the chance and see what I think!

Fascinating stuff! These "Sherlock Uncovered" clips are included on the Series Three Special Edition bonus disc so I think it is as official as any other bonus material too. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: Thoughts about series 3 as a whole

Exactly. And I think combination of burnt invitation, wilted buttonhole, a website throwing doubt on the happy Watson marriage and the Mary/Magnussen/Milverton combination is quite telling. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Thoughts about series 3 as a whole

I'm not sure - just in S3, Mary turns out to not be what she seems, she deceives John and shoots Sherlock, virtually killing him, the marriage splits up for months, with just a tentative reconciliation at the end.  And, of course, Magnussen was based on Milverton.  I think it's about S3.

This is a very good summary of HLV and the real cliff hanger of S3.
