Ha… it just struck me the other day, how Sherlock could possibly know about project H.O.U.N.D. - they shut it away 1986, he was still a child back then. But he read about it, somewhere. That’s classified CIA material, where could he have read about that?
At first I thought little Sherlock might have hacked into Mycroft’s computer someday, but right now I stumbled upon your Mummy Holmes theory again, and I don’t know… I mean, the Holmes parents are clearly connected to the USA (Oklahoma). Why not Liberty, Indiana? Mummy Holmes being a genius and all…
I mean, there clearly is a parallel between her and Dr Stapleton, Redbeard and Bluebell. (I know you think Redbeard was a human, “the other one” even, but let’s just assume for a moment it really was a dog)
I don’t want to say Redbeard did glow in the dark. And I don’t want anyone to read Kirsty’s email in kid!lock’s voice because it’s just heartbreaking… But I don’t think, even if TPTB are trying to sell that story, that there is a single episode that doesn’t contain hints to the big plot that’s going on, Sherlock vs his nemesis. And THoB sticks out a bit, because at least I never saw much of a connection. Until now.
Your thoughts about this? :)
Yeah, I’ve actually thought for a long time that Mummy/Mummy’s research might have somehow been involved with HOUND - I mean, if the Thing (Jim’s Big Project) is a mind/emotion altering thing, then it seems really likely that HOUND was another version/trial run/something …
(Tho I actually don’t think the Thing is a mind/emotion altering thing simply because that’s kind of lame/Jim’s more into technology stuff, but I do admit that it’s the theory that’s most supported by the evidence we have now)
