I have a question. Why did Sherlock change his mind so many times about going to Dartmoor? First he said he wasn't leaving London, because of the case of Bluebell. But after John gave him cigarettes, he said he was indeed going to Dartmoor. Why did he contradict himself?

Although I largely did not like the episode, I sincerely liked this. I always felt Mycroft was pretty detached to what Sherlock and John did, his feelings towards 'legwork' were pretty indicative. So given Sherlock and John have a load of experience with this grisly, high pressure stuff, Mycroft certainly has his own situations but its pretty clear he is never on the front lines. I think he has a whole new respect for what Sherlock and John really do. 
 

​Exactly. Holmes and Watson are professionals when it comes to these things. They've experienced life or death situations before and have had to keep their cool during those moments. Mycroft on the other hand has never been much for 'legwork', as you said. He's the brains behind operations, but never the executor. Sherlock and John were able to divorce themselves from their emotions during TFP, however, ironically, the Ice Man simply could not.

​Therefore, I truly believe Mycroft has surely found a newfound respect for what Sherlock and John do. They're a bit like trauma surgeons whose hands never shake while operating on their dying patients. They are professionals.

I still don't understand how Euros managed to put Moriarty's face on EVERY SCREEN IN THE COUNTRY. Like, really? You won't explain that at all? No secret radio hacking? No network tower takeover? How the hell did she do it?

I have been in love with Mycroft Holmes since the series began, and my love for him grew exponentially as the series progressed. The Final Problem was an absolute dream come true for me for many reasons. One of which, was the character development we got to see for Mycroft Holmes. He finally feels human.

​Just to highlight a few key Mycroft scenes from this episode:
1. It was lovely and hilarious know that he's corny at heart. Watching a racy, romantic film noir on a projector, all by himself; mouthing the lines because he's watched it so many times. Too damn cute. It's okay, Mikey. You'll get a girlfriend/wife soon enough (I hope so).

2. The childhood videos, photos and flashbacks of fat Mycroft. How adorable!

3. The grenade scene between him, Sherlock and John Watson was thrilling and absolutely hilarious at the same time. Them staying absolutely still while deciding what to do was so funny and genuine. Mycroft's references to him playing Lady Bracknell throughout the episode had me in tears laughing.

4. Mycroft disguised as the ship captain. I guess all the Holmes siblings are great at completely transforming themselves, in terms of their accents and mannerisms.

5. Mycroft's rage-fit towards the governor (incredibly hot).

6. Mycroft's general reaction towards the atrocities that Euros was committing before his very eyes. He seemed to be the most human of the 3 (him, Sherlock and John), but that's plainly because he isn't as experienced as Sherlock and John when it comes to handling such high pressure situations. Sherlock and John clearly have nerves of absolute steel; true heroes. Mycroft was visibly disturbed by what was happening to them and even gagged when the governor shot himself. This is a side of M. Holmes we haven't seen before - a very vulnerable and horrified Mycroft Holmes. Phenomenal acting from Mark's part.

7. Mycroft got owned in this episode. Whether it be by Mrs

We all knew that Mycroft wasn't a virgin. He's also clearly comfortable with his sexuality and knows how to separate sex from love, unlike Sherlock - the virgin. Even though he has borderline superhuman intelligence, like any other man he also has temptations.

My only problem with the Lady Smallwood and Mycroft pairing is that I was expecting him to go for a woman his age or younger. No offence, but isn't Lady Smallwood a bit too old for him? 16 years his senior... yikes.
In my head-canon, it'll always be Rosamund Pike playing Mycroft's lover. #otp
