Welcome back, Mr. Moriarty. We are very looking forward to you.

Ah, Sherlock. I somehow missed him in my list of suspects. Still think it's Mycroft though.

I don't think Sherlock planned his future that far in advance. He kind of resigned himself to the fate that was awaiting him - yes of course he was sure Mycroft was going to fight her case, but wasnt sure of the outcome. And in a way I think he thinks it's the 'right' thing to happen - like when he says 'there might be some new players'.

(to which I say, hey Sherlock, I don't want blasted new players, I want YOU!)

Re: Did you miss me?

Since I could not find a better place for this - here is a very interesting post about how the show is playing with our minds, this time with regard to the Miss Me video:

Re: Did you miss me?

This really is an interesting point.
I have always really easily been able to dismiss the first image...
But I have honestly never understood the last one.
The only thing is: it is AFTER the credits...so does this exclude it from being only in Sherlock's mind?!

Re: Did you miss me?

I do not think so. Because in TAB we see this image as well and TAB takes place in Sherlock's mind. After HLV we never see the actual video, just the image of "real" Moriarty.

My head's exploding...
But yeah, it's the REAL image I found difficult to place...

Re: Did you miss me?

Good point. It makes sense that it's in Sherlock's head.   What's odd is that people (people who are sure Moriarty is dead) even assume that it's actually Moriarty rather than somebody else broadcasting a recording.  And they could do that even with the last video, so if that's what Sherlock's imagining, what makes him think that it's live and not previously recorded?  Or is that part of the point - are we going to find out why he gives it such serious consideration?

Re: Did you miss me?

Possibly he doesn't believe it all, but is glad that other people do!
That way he's been brought back to deal with whatever it is that' he is going to do next'.

Re: Did you miss me?

Good point.  Although he does seem to be taking it seriously in TAB.  I don't know.   Maybe TAB has helped him work out who's behind the broadcast (Mycroft? Mary?  Somebody else? A network or conspiracy?).

Re: Did you miss me?

Yes to all of the above...
But I knew there was something else I was going to say:
It's the wording!
'Did you miss me?' is entirely different to 'Miss me.'
The latter could be an instruction.

Indeed. And it is his true manner of speaking.

Re: Did you miss me?

Quite so.
Which could mean, he is dead and we are to miss him
