What are everyones theories on the little clip of Moriarty after the credits? I do/ did believe he was dead but that little clip would suggest otherwise wouldn't it? That he is either alive or there is another Moriarty waiting in the wings.

This is not one of my favorites, but I did notice something very subtle.  When Sherlock/John are tricking Mary in the hallway scene and she realizes that Sherlock is behind her:

"A dummy...I suppose that's a fairly obvious trick."

I couldn't help but imagine John thinking to himself that on top of everything else, his wife -- in fact -- thinks of him as a dummy.  The choice of words seemed too coincidental to me.  The writers' universe is seldom so lazy.

I also want him to come back, and I think that the very last clip we see (about a minute into the credits sequence) indicates that it's more than just a poorly-manipulated image of him.  I could not be more excited.

For what it's worth, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Moriarty is still alive.  Even when watching TRF, I never quite bought that he was dead.

Ah yes! 

Did anyone notice the not-so-accidental alignement with the horns in the background?

For some reason I get the feeling that Shelock will have to choose between John and Mary in the next episode...keep in mind I have not read any spoilers and indeed do not want to know.  But I don't know...Sherlock's last vow was "no matter what it takes, to make sure nothing happens to the three of you."

I'm assuming that he will be faced with a difficult decision.

I know that this isn't the right place to post this, but can you imagine what it would be like playing poker against Sherlock?  LOL

Perhaps a snuggie... you know one of those blankets with sleeves?  That way he doesn't have to worry about Mycroft unclothing him the next time he's at the palace.

I think that part of what makes this episode so great is that we finally get to see things in Sherlock that we haven't seen before:  vulnerability, surprise, attraction, and trust.  Both Irene and Sherlock take turns being vulnerable to one another, which inspires trust and mutual admiration... and which eventually leads to feelings of love.

First off, I'd like to thank you all for providing me with hours of entertainment and enjoyment
while reading your comments and debates.  I stumbled upon this forum earlier today, and I have
done little other than immerse myself in it since. 

I beg of you all to take it easy on this n00b.  My thoughts on this episode (as well as in
general) are based solely on my experiences watching Sherlock (no books).  That said,
I feel and hope that the show alone is rich enough to provide me with plenty of food for thought.

 Well, here goes...

I've noticed that many of the points made in this thread have to do with sexuality, whether they
be homosexual, heterosexual, or asexual.  Of course this is to be expected, given the subject of
the thread.  ;)

Rather than focus on sexuality, I would like to instead discuss the concepts of attraction and
(as silly as it may sound) love.  I find it important to make this distinction, because Sherlock
Holmes -- after all -- craves intellectual stimulation above all other things. 

The man literally goes mad when faced with boredom, rote, and predictability.  His general
disdain for "ordinary people" stems from their willingness (and at times their desire) to abide
by the very rules and regulations that he so despises, all the while going through life seeing
but not observing. 

This is where the perception of Sherlock being asexual makes perfect sense.  Something as mundane
as Molly trying to get his attention with extra makeup or run-of-the-mill flirtiness simply
fails.  Whether male or female, to get the attention of Sherlock Holmes, there must be something
different about you.  (For example, Watson may have simply ended up as a roommate had it not been
for his experience as a wartime doctor.

Enter Irene Adler:  a woman whose profession as a dominatrix perfectly fits her personality. 
Like Holmes, Irene embraces walking the fine line between danger and excitement...while at the
same time weaving her own s
