Re: The Abominable Bride (for those who have seen it)

I wouldn't say that the cult should be Mary's sisters.   Being pro-emancipation doesn't mean she should support murdering men who wrong women.   I do see that there was probably some infiltration and deception involved (she's a secret agent after all).  And this is Sherlock's mind palace (I know we all know that!) so it's more a case of him using her special attributes (including her sex) to help him work something out.  But yes, interesting point about her setting things in motion.

Re: The Abominable Bride (for those who have seen it)

These are the ballots. I think people can choose their favourites from these and those will become the nominees. I just had a look. Benedict and Martin are both eligible.

Re: The Abominable Bride (for those who have seen it)

That's great and would be well deserved in both cases. <3

Any nominations would be well deserved.  TAB was a work of art.

Re: The Abominable Bride (for those who have seen it)

I agree.  Looking forward to see how it all plays out.  Though I didn't know that the ballots would be public online.

Here's the Bride's song, if anybody is interested (obviously, I was!):




It's kind of an odd song to sing at a wedding and an odd thing to sing when killing somebody ("Do not forget me"?  He doesn't have a chance to!).   I wonder why that song was chosen?   I suppose it maybe is a little more appropriate for the bride to sing before she kills herself ... and maybe (as it's in Sherlock's mind palace), the "Do not forget me" is directed ultimately at Sherlock.   The song does seem to be about thinking about a girl who is long dead.

Sorry for reviving something ancient, but this was just going through my mind.  I was wondering if, as this is Sherlock's subconscious, it's maybe partly a hint to himself about Eurus.  I'm sure Moftiss said that they knew where they were going with S4 when they filmed TAB (and were trying to keep it secret!). 

It was actually the "Miss me" discussion in the other thread that put this in my mind.  That "Miss Me?" was ultimately a message from Eurus, via Moriarty.  Which brought me back to "Do not forget me" - perhaps a little bit of Sherlock's subconscious actually picking up on that, but not quite seeing it through. 

Also, like Emelia, Eurus is yet another person with a faked death (even if she wasn't the one who faked it!).    If Sherlock did remember her, he'd presumably think she was dead, as that's what his parents thought.   So maybe his subconscious was again layering on another hint that she might not be.

Interesting thoughts, Liberty!
