Re: Why kill the blind lady?

I've just rewatched the episode yesterday with my beloved 7th graders (who loved it, by the way, that's why I love them!).

I think the more important question is "Why did Moriarty choose the blind woman frist place?" If you think this one through you could come to the conclusion that he knew there was the risk she might give something away.
IMO he chose her BECAUSE of that risk. He had planed to kill her in case she talkes to much just to show what a dangerous man he is.

Re: Why kill the blind lady?

Does not each 'hostage' become increasingly more emotive? Start with a woman, then a young man, then an old blind woman, then a child. Finally Sherlock's friend.

Re: Why kill the blind lady?

I found out interesting that Sherlock and John had a bit of a tiff when John pointed out that lives, real human lives are at stake, and Sherlock said something about will caring help, then I shall continue to not make that mistake. (paraphrasing).
And yet at the pool, he tells M that People have DIED!  to which jim replies that's what people DO!

So while solving the case, Sherlock understands that lives are at stake, but doesn't let the emotion interfere, while he knows, and CARES about it.

Re: Why kill the blind lady?

When he says 'People have died' Sherlock is making a statement of fact. He must learn useful things about Moriarty by the extreme reaction he gets from him.

Re: Why kill the blind lady?

True, Moriarity is a puzzle, with many missing pieces  (darn those corner pieces) Each little piece Sherlock can put together will give him insight into how Moriarity ticks.

I still believe that he does at some level care that peoples lives are at stake, that fact is just so far down his list of interests that it doesn't really concern him at the time.  After he's solved the puzzles - he can allow himself to be a bit more human - John rubbing off on him a bit.

Re: Why kill the blind lady?

I think the blind lady was killed simply because she started to describe Moriarty's voice. My theory is that Moriarty at that point was already planning to blame all his crimes on Sherlock later. When the old Lady started to talk about his voice, Moriarty realised he had made a mistake when he had talked to her. Being blind, her hearing was probably good enough to be 100% sure that the voice she had heard could not have been Sherlock's. So she had to die.
