Why didn't Sherlock recognise his own sister? Discuss!

I know he was high and she was in a disguise but still...he's supposed to be the world's greatest detective...

Re: Why didn't Sherlock recognise his own sister? Discuss!

I think you have your answers right there - he as so high he was weeks from dying (and even Bill Wiggins said he had gotten too much), and she was in disguise. 

Also, I can imagine that it has been many years since Sherlock saw her. She might have changed.

Does Sherlock even know about her?

Re: Why didn't Sherlock recognise his own sister? Discuss!

He couldn't make any deduction in her, he hasn't seen her for a long time and she's just as smart as any other Holmes breed. She could figure out to be not noticed

Good question.

Re: Why didn't Sherlock recognise his own sister? Discuss!

The trailer afterwards suggested that he has a trauma of sorts connected to the sister, so maybe he can't really remember her...

I suppose she had something to do with Redbeard and it was when Sherlock was a child. Maybe he has not seen her since that time.

Re: Why didn't Sherlock recognise his own sister? Discuss!

What if Sherlock doesn't know?

But can't be - what about the childhood memory scenes? That is clearly them, I guess?

This would be my first guess.

Re: Why didn't Sherlock recognise his own sister? Discuss!

Maybe she did something to Redbeard. Maybe there is some explanation why Mycroft keeps mentioning Redbeard.

One thing I am sure of: the next episode will be very interesting. Finally some answers? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

Maybe he thought her dead.

Re: Why didn't Sherlock recognise his own sister? Discuss!

My first thought is that he thought she was dead.  Anyway, I get the impression he hasn't seen her as an adult.

Re: Why didn't Sherlock recognise his own sister? Discuss!

I think he may have suppressed her completely due to some trauma. And the memories are slowly creeping in since he started allowing emotions.

I think she murdered Redbeard. Psychopaths often display early signs by harming animals.

Re: Why didn't Sherlock recognise his own sister? Discuss!

I'm so confused about this... if their sister's name literally means "The East Wind"... and Sherlock said on the tarmac that "The East Wind takes us all in the end"... He never made the association with his sister? Or he already knew she was going to show?

Re: Why didn't Sherlock recognise his own sister? Discuss!

Mycroft used to tell him about "The East Wind" when they were children...

Re: Why didn't Sherlock recognise his own sister? Discuss!

So what's her name now? Didn't she say Euros?? So maybe Sherrinford is something different?

What did she say to (and about John) before she shot?  I put a hole into it     or something. Weird.

Something like Nice face, I think I'll put a hole into it.
