I'm not glad. Don't like Mary and if they stay I hope with as little screen time as possible, don't want three and a half leads. Too many smart people in one room.
Like Amanda though, no doubt.

Funny, isn't it. Everybody is super clever or at least a psychopath.

We have Mycroft who is apparently clever. Mary, too. CAM has a mind palace. Mrs. Holmes is a genuis anyway. If Moriarty comes back it looks as if Sherlock is supposed to be the stupid one to struggle his way through the next series. And I bet the Watson-baby will be a genius, too.

Where are all the "ordinary" people I have to cope with in real life?

Well, those people would be the people in the real world, wouldn't they?  I don't expect ordinary people in a drama about an man with extraordinary powers of deductions.

Re: "Mary will remain in series 4"

I think it is one thing to create a fictional reality with a Holmes character who happens to be able to "see through everything and everyone in seconds" and another thing to put him into the Tardis metaphorically speaking. The Mary character is a symbol of the paradox of series 3.
It's no use to point that out when apparently everybody tries to make sense of something that's impossible.  I do see that.

Re: "Mary will remain in series 4"

It'll be interesting to see if she survives series 4.

She can only live in a reality where Moriarty is alive and appears on every screen in the U.K. simulaneously.
Mycroft said that it's simply not possible. And Mycroft is never wrong.

Re: "Mary will remain in series 4"

I gotta say, I'm very curious as to how they would make that work: Mary and the Baby and John-- still togther in season 4? I have NO idea.

Re: "Mary will remain in series 4"

I've sort of given up on speculating about Mary's future. That is right now I really can't see how they are going to weasel their way out of this. I only hope Moffat and Gatiss know though.
So I'm just going to lean back and see what happens. Most likely (and hopefully) the solution will be something I never considered before but will seem completely logical when it comes up.
But I also hope it will be well plotted out, I don't want anything to happen in the 'off' that we will just have to accept as given. But with such a major character I honestly don't think they will let that happen. It would be a such waste of an interesting storyline.
