“Sherlock waits to see where Moriarty will make his posthumous move. One mysterious case in particular baffles Scotland Yard – but Sherlock is more interested in a seemingly trivial detail. Why is someone destroying images of the late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher? Is there a madman on the loose? Or is there a much darker purpose at work? Something with its roots deep in Mary Watson’s past…”
Now that things are back to normal, or well, to a resemblance to normal–Valentine is still loose, but Jace is back, the Institute is back under Lightwood control and no one is getting married– Alec realizes that things aren’t normal at all. He’d counted on his parents being disappointed, on the Clave being difficult because he was involved with a Downworlder, but he’d never really expected the other Shadowhunters, the people under his command, to act differently.
They do though. Every time he enters a room there’s this loaded silence where for a moment everyone looks expectantly at him. Like he’ll march to someone and kiss them. Or throw a giant fit because his brother is missing. The people in the hallway no longer nod at him in greeting, instead they give him a once-over, like they’re looking for traces of warlock on him. Like he’s leading a life of debauchery now and surely that must show on his body.
“It’ll blow over,” Izzy tries to assure him. “Soon someone will cheat on someone, or someone will get pregnant and they’ll complain about taking over shifts.”

I’ve slightly apologetically loved Sherlock since middle school, so naturally, I was quite excited for Season 4, especially since my other favorite long-runner had presented an excellent recent season. This, for some reason, had given me hope for the completely unrelated new Sherlock season.
…And then the finale tonight sucked ass. Majorly.
It felt pointless and completely irrelevant. I was actually bored for much of it and completely uninvested. It was contrived and dull. Additionally, I could go on for ages about the ridiculous thing with Molly (who was completely shoehorned in after barely being present that season. Hell, that scene wouldn’t have made any sense with Irene Adler (even though she vaguely showed up in a similar context last episode, which is more than Molly did), so it made absolutely none with Molly, considering the only emotional attachments developed this season were those between John, Sherlock, and Mary. Was it just an excuse to give Molly screentime?), and all the Moriarty stuff was completely ludicrous. Oh, and Eurus just felt like a completely wasted character. Something very cool could have been done with her, but she became the garden variety stock “mad and murderous genius”. Oh, and because of the long lost sister, Moriarty, Sherrinford, and Molly, the episode felt like a major asspull.
I was so excited to play my game tonight, then I thought it’d be a good idea to run my DL folder through the compressorizer again and it’s going to take hours T__T I really have to get into the habit of compressing stuff before introducing it into the main folder…
