God bless Mark Gatiss and his secretive smirk.

“(…) are finally paid off in episode 3, wich features…. lots of extraordinary things I can’t tell you anything about. And possibly, things will never be the same again…”

That fucking smirk. I love Mark Gatiss, I’m ready to worship at his feet. 

That’s it. I’m ready. I’m ready for s4. Bring it.

Hi! Maybe all this has been pointed out already, but I've recently played Sherlock's official game 'Network' and the main case there is that John has literally signed a death certificate of a person named Mary. I really doubt it's a coincidence!

OH MY GOD, REALLY NONNY?!?!?!

Okay okay okay, I haven’t played the Network yet, but OMG that’s amazing.

I love that all the best foreshadowing is done on the things that only the true fans will go searching for (MHR, the apps, the blogs…)

“Tell me,” he says to the crystals. “Tell me when he’ll return.”

But the crystals take no orders and only show what they want. Fragments and pieces, nothing whole. Merlin sees glimpses of a strange world with metal shapes and square buildings of grey rock, a world where things move at a dizzying speed. He sees yet another world with velvet coattails and shoes with buckles and heels; he sees white linen stained with red.

“When?” he asks the crystals.

But the crystals are silent, the images gone.

The mirror crack'd from side to side

A shattering climax… I know, we are all quite excited about this but I was reminded ot these lines:

The mirror crack’d from side to side;
‘The curse is come upon me,’ cried
The Lady of Shalott.
(x)

Mirrors shatter as well.

Or they don’t, which can be equally telling…

In the poem the Lady of Shalott lives in an island castle in a river which flows to Camelot, but the local farmers know little about her. She suffers from a mysterious curse and must continually weave images on her loom without ever looking directly out at the world. Instead, she looks into a mirror, which reflects the busy road and the people of Camelot who pass by her island. The reflected images are described as “shadows of the world”, a metaphor that makes it clear they are a poor substitute for seeing directly. Then she sees Lancelot; she stops weaving and looks out of her window toward Camelot, bringing about the curse. She leaves her tower, finds a boat upon which she writes her name, and floats down the river to Camelot. She dies before arriving at the palace. Among the knights and ladies who see her is Lancelot, who thinks she is lovely. 

Water - Boats - Mirrors - Shadows  - Death

As she falls in love and decides to participate in the real world, to leave her tower, she dies before reaching her destination.

Agatha Christie used the line, “The mirror crack’d from side to side”, to title her novel The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side (1962), and the poem plays a large part in the plot. Mark Gatiss is rather into Agatha Christie…
