Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

In Dying detective CS sends Sherlock a box with hidden poisoned pin, Sherlock is supposed to be poisonned days before he dies. He behaves weird (or pretends to)  influenced by it. TLD seemed too straightforward as to CS's actiones. Just kill at the end.

It ocurres probable that there was more of it. CS in Baker street with his memory inhibitor that influences Sherlock's life  days before the final meeting seems to be more in line with canon.

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

I don't think he ever went to Baker St.

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

 I have not checked it but others have  and confirmed it is true. I will rewatch it  later but if they saw him there....

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

During that scene, Sherlock is hallucinating Culverton in various scenarios, so there's no reason to assume the 221B one is real.  How would Sherlock know about it, if it was?  (Interesting if it was, though!).

“I’m sure the therapist who actually lives here wouldn’t want blood on the carpet. Oh, hang on, it’s fine. She’s in a sack in the airing cupboard.” So we are meant to believe that Eurus killed the real therapist, right? But she is using her house at least for the second time. John visits her at least twice and his words about being better and Sherlock recovered show that time has passed. If Eurus killed the therapist before his first visit, someone should have grown suspicious by now. Or even found her.

One explanation might be that she has only recently dispatched the therapist and disguised herself as her.   As she says, men never look at the face!  And she goes to such trouble with her disguise that it seems she might be copying somebody John has already seen.  Perhaps unlikely that he would fall for it, but even Sherlock did, with picture to compare to.  And John tend to look past her rather than at her.

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

For instance was the memory inhibitor tested in combination with drugs Sherlock is using? They might change its effect. I seems like halucination but there is still slight possibility that it is a fraction of memories. Nice, everything is open till the end (and sometimes over).

Well, the rug between their chairs, which seems to be an animal skin btw, is bloody red. Nobody would notice.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

Do you think she was making a funny and it wasted on us all?!
I actually do seem to remember noticing that there was a red carpet or rug or something.

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

Yep, the rug is blood red. When I watched it the second time I briefly wondered if it had been Red before the real therapist died... But then, a blood drenched rug would surely smell even worse than a dead therapist in the flat.

And would smell as hell. But it's funny anyway.

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

What exactly is an airing cupboard? Does not indicate that the body does not smell inside the house?

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

Ha. It's a cupboard where people sometimes have a water tank, but with or without, it has shelving for bedding, towels etc.

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

So nothing what would help with the smell.

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

The implication being the smell would be a lot worse...airing cupboard's are warm!

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

So Eurus bought the terapist one month holiday at Madeira with departure the next day , presented it as a win in competition "My favorite  terapist" and stole keys to her house while presening her the prize.
After the shot there will be flag with BANG  from the gun.  Then she and John will organize party and invite Sherlock and Mycroft for happy  family reunion.

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

In the light of this interview: 

http://worldscreen.com/tvdrama/steven-moffat-talks-doctor-who-sherlock/

and this quote: "Sherlock Holmes will now wear the silly hat because Mary liked it. It just felt right."

I had another look at the whole hat/silly hat/damn hat thing and came up with this:

If you take everything at face value, i.e. for real, it just does not make sense.

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

I suppose Sherlock could deduce that Mary likes it (as he deduces that Mary doesn't like John's moustache, etc.).   Also Irene likes it, John says that people like it, so it's not a reach.  It's hinted that Sherlock talks to ghost Mary too, but I think that's open to intepretation.

Re: TLD - What is real in this episode?

I definitely think Sherlock talks to ghost Mary, too.
