Re: Which direction will Mary's character go? (SPOILERS after SDCC!)

The next couple of lines (the one after that doesn't give much away at all, just about the great writing):

It's a very, very dark series, this.  There's the same trademark humour and the relationships are as strong as ever, but the things that evolve ... plot-wise as well as pscyhologically, between those friends because of the plot is enormous, and sort of defining for the series, and it's been great fun to do, I mean, but really shocking to read and really emotional.

Re: Which direction will Mary's character go? (SPOILERS after SDCC!)

Which makes me happy because it seems to confirm that Sherlock and John will still be the core and main focus of the show.

In that interview he mentions the arc of all four of them. Four?

Re: Which direction will Mary's character go? (SPOILERS after SDCC!)

I understand it as the arc of the four seasons. Not four persons.

Please look at this. So Mary's first line in S4 seems to be "Lady Smallwood". Which is interesting for some reasons. We did not have any connection between these two before but it would support the impression we got from TAB: that Mary is somehow connected to Mycroft. And that in S4 there will a some contact between Mary and Lady Smallwood. Her gesture seems to say: Come on, give this to me. Opens a lot of possibilities.

Very curious about that connection. Double agent is she?

Re: Which direction will Mary's character go? (SPOILERS after SDCC!)

My theories:

- Mary started to blackmail people instead of Magnussen

oooor

- she is recruited because "England needs her" (similar to TAB) and is going to save the day while "two amateurs" uselessly wallow in the background

or maybe

- Lady Smallwood wants to bump off some of her political enemies, thus being revealed as the big baddie supported by Mycroft even?

Re: Which direction will Mary's character go? (SPOILERS after SDCC!)

Or Mary could be threatening Lady Smallwood to give something over to her. 

However, it is strange that we have no cast information or sightings of Lindsay Duncan. They either hid her presence or the scenes with her have been filmed during HLV.

Re: Which direction will Mary's character go? (SPOILERS after SDCC!)

Probably a short scene they already filmed in HLV, I agree.

Re: Which direction will Mary's character go? (SPOILERS after SDCC!)

Okay... my knowledge of Margaret Thatcher serious lack, and I'm sorry... but could Lady Smallwood somehow be similar to Thatcher?

That´s a good idea, Phantom! She is a politician, so that may be the case....

Final confirmation for all of who never believed that Sherlock killed Magnussen for Mary:

Re: Which direction will Mary's character go? (SPOILERS after SDCC!)

It is fact that neither Benedict nor Steven mentioned Mary when asked about the Magnussen murder. I also noticed that the whole cool assassin/badass Mummy stuff was absent from the panels and interviews for which I am really glad.
