would be cool if it had some unlockable statement to it to the fans like saying "Elementary My Dear Warson" (Moftiss are big fans of the Rathbone/Bruce Movies so it would have been a cute easter egg on their part) course you'd have to have fans who could translate the binary code to it's numeric value and then translate that to alpha/numerics in order to switch it over to english....

and is any of that actually possible? (Math and computer science are not my subjects)

Yes, of course it is possible. ASCII translation from binary...

add to that Moriarty himself said "There is no code! DOOFUS!!!!" It was just a con to put Sherlock through the paces and keep him distracted.

Of course, I knew that, but I thought this code would still have some meaning, like, the writers put in some stuff. But it was just utter gibber

So your intention with this thread is to take bits from the episodes and think of ways in which the Moftiss could create new storylines out of them? Try to predict what they will do, is that how I should see it? I'm game.

Let me start with the red herring collection. I think we will not see anything of image 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 11.  Reichenbach is over, Molly's BF was unhappy and they broke up later, Waters gang was just a one off, Sherlock pretended to be an addict in order to deceive CAM and the indian guy was one of the 'fanclub' or Mycroft's helpers. 

Image 1 and 12: Mycroft. 
I think what happens between Sherlock and Mycroft is quite straightforward. Mycroft used detachment as a powerful weapon and wants Sherlock to do the same. Especially because Sherlock is Mycroft's pressure point. Sherlock points out that it comes at a cost, and doesn't want to listen. My prediction is that this dynamic will endanger both of them in the new season, especially Mycroft, he might lose his position and his power. The other brother, if there was one, is probably dead. 

Image 9: Wiggins
Billy and Wiggins were two of Holmes' assistents in the canon. I think Billy Wiggins will fulfill that role in season 4, he might even live with Sherlock for a while, maybe Sherlock will help him off the drugs. I'm guessing that other characters won't like him, John might secretly become a bit jealous, mrs Hudson will be sceptical, Mycroft will be sarcastic. Maybe Mary might like him. Against all odds, Billy and Sherlock will become friends. 

Other things that may happen: John is gonna be torn between Sherlock and his family life, the baby might not make it, something huge is gonna happen to Mary's arc, Moriarty is gonna remain dead. 

 

Yeah that's exactly my intention

10. We'll see whether they elaborate on that or not.

The 2nd one, everyone on the net apparently is saying that it was the 'true' explanation. Yet, Im unsure, and if it isn't, there's a whole range of stuff writers could try in 4th season.

I wondered if the writers leave subtle clues in previous episodes, then why not make a collection of photos of suspicious scenes where it might be likely that those scenes take their own story later in season 4.

This is my miscellany:-



Image 1: Why would Sherlock deduce that Mycroft is lonely? Mycroft looks so disturbed in this scene.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/1551643_727587570586785_951786180_n.jpg



Image 2: This one is very strong in terms of suspicion. Indeed, why would Sherlock tell all of this to Anderson first? They still haven't explained how Sherlock survived the fall.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/10779_727587607253448_1457573233_n.jpg







Image3: The Water's Gang! was it all just for the gags? or it was something?
https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/1604421_727587653920110_364769234_n.jpg



Image4: more Waters Gang.
https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/1530418_727587640586778_420409272_n.jpg





Image 5: Molly's BF! What the hell is up with him? Does Molly inevitably attract bad boys? Or this one is not like her last psychotic boyfriend?

https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/t1/1010627_727587663920109_1625670743_n.jpg






Image 6: This one is trippy, because, Sherlock deduces that Mary had acquired her identity 5 years ago and it isn't her real name, yet this guy (Allegedly Mary's ex) says he knew her from ages ago (ages ago can mean beyond 5 years).

https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/t1/1507689_727587717253437_456647768_n.jpg





Image 7: One more from Molly's boyfriend. When Sherlock mentions a joke, everyone else giggles, but this guy is just a tad bit unhappy or is he just a deadpan?

Image 8: And just why was Sherlock in that broken house

Wiggins is the smartest boy of the Baker Street irregulars, he is sort of the official spokesperson for the group of children. He is portrayed as someone on who Holmes relies and who he uses for 'legwork' as Mycroft would say it.

I think this Wiggins has the same role. Probably they merged the role of Wiggins with Billy indeed because in this day and age, there aren't too many bell boys anymore.(which Billy is, more than Holmes' assistent, he is described as a very young lad)

agreed

Never even thought of that! But keeping in mind his skills and where Sherlock found him ("you know what happened to the other one") and that he has no purpose at all (or shall we say not yet has a purpose).... This sounds kind of convincing!
Maybe Sherlock and Brother3 were both drug addicts and, to save his fave brother, Mycroft told Sherlock that Brother3 had died and then did everything he could to get Sherlock out of the gutter (successfully). Though, there is a problem: Wouldn't Sherlock recognize his own brother? Maybe he did disappear a bit earlier

Yeah. Billy also says that he would inherit Sherlock's property after he dies. it was to be funny, but no one can take chances of categorizing some dialogue as funny and not important in this detailed tv show.

Oh dear god. Moriarty is dead. You can't fake shooting yourself in the head.

The image of Moriarty is animated (you can see it in his lower jaw). If he was alive, that wouldn't be necessary. Someone is using his image.

He is definitely dead. His story is over, there is nothing more to say about him. Moftiss wouldn't make that kind of amateur script writing mistake.

And I'm now going to step out of this thread and not return because theorising on whether or not he's dead is just going to annoy the crap out of me.

Possibly. But now that the writers want us to believe that he is coming back, what can we say to that?

Mycroft was conversing with an MI6 agent and it went like this 

MI6 person: "If this is some expression of familial sentiment..."

Mycroft: "Don't be absurd. I am not given to outbursts of brotherly compassion... you know what happened to the other one."


What do you guys think of this?

UPDATE: The code was that  Moriarty was tapping his fingers to Johann Sebastian Bach. That was the rhythm. So, there's no meaning to that binary.

If anyone is wondering what's that binary code which Moriarty expresses through his fingertips.

10001000000010000000100000001000100000001000000001000001000001000001


Now, its decimal value equals 4.90104671079E+18
But its ASCII translation says that the code isn't divisible by 8.(cannot be accepted by ASCII standards.)
This can be that I may have errored in seeing the code, or it wasn't really meant to be a secret code or something.

Feel free to check the code try to find out if I've errored in writing that code (it was really taxing).

I would like to remind, this might seem incomprehensible, that Sherlock trusts Mary and everything, but he has his own mind working, and that's how most of the times, solves cases, without knowing what's on his mind, and then revealing all the details and showing off,(sometimes he's a real bitch).
