The whole episode was weird and off because it’s Sherlock trying to make sense of what happened. It’s not told in real time; it’s told through Sherlock’s reflections of the event. It’s his mind palace.
That’s why we get:
- his fucking narration about Samara and predestination (motherfucker, that is an analysis of things that had happened)
- fucking water reflections on his face from the aquarium (motherfucker hasn’t even been to the aquarium)
- repeats of lines that he had said to Moriarty (”touch of the dramatics”) and lines that other characters couldn’t have known about (”Sherlock, the dragon slayer”)
