Sorry, guys! Went MIA for a bit again cause work and school have been killer lately. Well, here are some quick Sherlock sketches to celebrate the premiere of season 3 (FINALLY!!). Warning: Spoilers everywhere! But you knew that already.
The first pic is just crack art and the second pretty much sums up this episode. Speech bubble reads: “Mon cheri, je suis ‘surprising and familiar,’ non?”
This is the first time I have ever loved Mary in any Sherlock adaptation. Not just tolerated, but loved! Amanda Abbington was the perfect choice!
. Things that made this episode worth the insanely long wait:
All the teaser fake death scenarios that ANDERSON (?!?!) and his gang made up!
How Sherlock’s death kind of broke Anderson… (wtf happened at the end? I’m still confused.)
How John said he had met someone and Mrs. Hudson automatically assumed that it was a guy.
French waiter Sherlock!! (though, I couldn’t help picturing Martin Crieff and his “bear polars”…)
John punching Sherlock.
John strangling Sherlock.
John strangling Sherlock on the floor while some sensual tango-esque music plays in the background. (seriously, Moffat??)
Mary becoming the biggest Johnlock advocate.
Sherlock trolling John with a car full of explosives.
Lestrade not-so-subtly asking Molly if he still has a chance of asking her out.
Ahh man, this episode was pretty darn perfect.
Edit: I am thoroughly disappointed with Moffat. The rest of the season was awful and Mary turned into just another overly complicated and unrealistic character to shove into John’s life. Sigh.
I really wish life hadn’t gotten in the way of this, but to all of my fellow artists who worked on this and made it to the finish line, I hope the fanbook continues to be a huge success! Congrats, everyone!
