Here are mine :

Moriarty : Welcome to the final problem.

Sherlock : Hey, bro !

John : There's a place for people like you, the desperate, the terrified. The ones with nowhere else to run.
Mycroft : What place ?
John : 221B Baker Street. If there's a queue, join in.

Mycroft : Every choice you ever made, every path you've ever taken, the man you are today is your memory of Eurus.

Mycroft (BAMF !!) : For your own physical safety, do not speak. Do not indulge in any non-verbal signals suggestive of internal thought !

Mycroft : I presume the tapes are in my office ?
Governor : Your office ?
Mycroft : Cast your mind back. Used to be yours.

Sherlock to Mycroft : Do shut up, dear.

Sherlock : He's trying to make it easy for me to kill him.

Mycroft : I promised my brain to the Royal Society.
Sherlock : Where would you suggest ?
Mycroft : Well, I suppose there is a heart somewhere inside me. I don't imagine it's much of a target, but why don't we try for that ?

Mycroft : Goodbye, brother mine. No flowers. My request.

Moriarty : Holmes killing Holmes.

Mary : PS : I know you two. And if I'm gone, I know what you could become. Because I know who you really are. A junkie who solves crimes to get high. And the doctor who never came home from the war. Will you listen to me ? Who you really are, it doesn't matter. It's all about the legend. The stories, the adventures. There is a last refuge for the desperate, the unloved, the persecuted. There is a final court of appeal for everyone. When life gets too strange, too impossible, too frightening, there is always one last hope. When all else fails, there are two men sitting arguing in a scruffy flat like they've always been there, and they always will. The best and wisest men I have ever known. My Baker Street boys. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson.

Honestly Mycroft needs a John, too! (there is someone who would come to my mind

Are you, by chance, thinking about a certain DI ? If so, he was asked by Sherlock to take care of Mycroft...

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. W

I have always loved Mycroft, but, in TFP, I loved him even more if it was possible. Just like Sherlock, he proved to us that he is human and has feelings behind his Ice Man armour. Best scene for me was when he tried to make Sherlock angry so he would kill him instead of John. He revealed a big heart then.

And I loved BAMF Mycroft, with his umbrella turned sword turned gun ! I litterally squealed in delight !

Just a quick post to share my opinion about TFP. I will say more once I've seen it a second time with subtitles.
In a word : I LOVED IT !! I think it is maybe the best episode ever ! I loved everything, and especially Mycroft ! So much screen time ! I'm happy ! And the umbrella turned sword turned gun, I can't even begin to explain how awesome it was !! 
It seems that, if it is indeed the last episode ever, the end is very fitting, I can't wait to rewatch it !

To my knowledge, Martin never attended a convention... And for the last UK one, Ben was announced a mere few days before the event !!

I don't know if I take my day-pass now or if I wait for more guests announcements... I would like at least to wait until Mark is announced but I'm afraid tickets will be sold out... And if I take my Saturday ticket now and Mark is announced on Sunday only, I won't be able to change... Dilemma...

I asked to be spoiled on a precise thing and I thank the people who answered me ! Now, I'm staying clear of everything potentially spoilery to enjoy tonight's episode ! 

To think it's perhaps the last episode ever will bring a bittersweet feeling when the opening will start...

I'm preparing myself for TFP to be the last episode ever. So, if there is more in years to come, I can only be pleasantly surprised !

As for TV history, an alternate ending might do the trick, especially after the advanced screening. What's the point of that event when you know spoilers will be flying around ? Maybe there's something that wasn't shown, and Mark and Steven may have something else up their sleeves...

I practically spent my night looking for spoilers but didn't find anything either !

I need to know if Mycroft is still alive at the end of the episode ! Please, I didn't get any real sleep last night and I'm having panic attacks constantly ! Someone send me a message answering that question, please !

Don't get me wrong, I loved that photo shoot with Ben, and I understand the problems with so many people attending, but it was a bit impersonal... I chatted more with Mark and he wished me a happy birthday, it was awesome !!

It's 100% sure now that I will go to Birmingham !! A friend of mine accepted to come with me so it will be great ! I think I will be there on Saturday...

I saw Ben at Sherlocked London last september for a photo shoot and 5 seconds after, it was already finished !!
 So, if he is there, I don't know if I'll spend so much for a photo...

On the contrary, I will gladly pay for a photo (and/or autograph) with the amazing Mark !

I am not sure if the shot we hear was made by her.

Hm thats an interesting idea... I am indeed very curious!

Interesting !
Maybe it's the final "shot" made by Sherlock/John/other when we see them all locked up in the same room in the trailer ?
In any case, I don't think she's talking about John in the end of TLD...

Knowing that screening is taking place today is going to drive me mad.
I don't know that I'll be able to resist the temptation to go hunting for spoilers.
Although I'll admit, I didn't find any huge spoilers out there for TLD after it's screening.
The finale might be a different matter though.  Depending on what goes down in the story.

This is so me !!
I know I won't be able to resist : I will go spoilers-hunting tonight ! I NEED to know if Mycroft dies, this is a matter of national security ! Because I will start WWIII if they dare to kill Mycroft !
