Re: Episode titles (spoilers)

I am not so sure if the title refers to a Sherlock/Moriarty showdown. We've had the fall twice already, I seriously don't believe they would do it a third time. 

My first thought was more in the direction SusiGo was going - Sherlock's own demons.

Edit: Or it's the final showdown with Moriarity being, without a shadow of a doubt, very dead. That would be kind of like an ending.

The other things that keeps springing into my head is that "fake" scene they filmed with Mycroft shaking Moriarty's hand.  It might have been very prescient of them.

I keep thinking about that one too!

In real life, huh?  So--10 years for the Sherlock Holmes readers, three years for Dr. Watson!

Re: Episode titles (spoilers)

Another thing: To me one big difference between Canon Watson's hiatus and our John's hiatus was that in Canon Holmes did not commit suicide. He did a "noble" death fighting his most dangerous adversary. Watson mourned but he did not feel guilty, at least not as guilty as John must have felt who left Sherlock with the words "you machine" and saw him jumping to his death half an hour later. 

For the original audience it was must worse as well since ACD did not want to continue and therefore killed Holmes off. We, however, knew that Sherlock would return, we just had to wait.

Re: Episode titles (spoilers)

Unless, of course, they're lying, and pretending they're going to continue, when in fact they're going to kill him off. 

(I'm kidding!)

I'm sorry http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
.  Of course, they have said it's insane wish fulfillment, and I'd surely the last thing they'd wish for would be to kill him off!  So I'm reassured.

Re: Episode titles (spoilers)

The last ep's title has been confirmed (saw it on the official Sherlock feed on FB: https://www.facebook.com/Sherlock.BBCW).

It is indeed The Final Problem.

So it was no red herring but indeed carelessness. Thought so. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Episode titles (spoilers)

Interesting! 

It still tickles me that they used the actual title and didn't change anything...

Re: Episode titles (spoilers)

The fandom is SO clever sniffing out such stuff! I mean, how does it even happen? A mystery! I wonder for how much longer they would have kept us guessing if not for the leak, and I feel a little sorry for them (and for the hapless agency manager or whoever added that bit of info a little too early).

Re: Episode titles (spoilers)

I think the mainstream media did not realise at all that this happened. It was just all over tumblr.

Re: Episode titles (spoilers)

So you don't think they rushed the official release of the third ep's title? For how much longer, do you think, they could have kept it a secret, realistically, seeing how TV guides etc. need the info in advance.

But at least somebody must have tweeted the leak to Mark or Amanda, right?
