Do you realize what we’ve done???
I know for a fact the people who create Sherlock know about our conspiracy blogs – they even said they were the reason The Empty Hearse played out like it did. I’ve seen BTS coverage where online Sherlock fandom is studied in regards to theory of episodes. They absolutely know we’re out here. They have admitted to writing plot points around people like us.
And you know what? They saw TJLC. They saw how we cracked that major code REALLY EARLY. That’s why there’s an underground cult who operates silently in The Abominable Bride. The threat to life as they know it. The only thing the cult did wrong was “break the glass”.
Don’t you see??? They wanted to break their own glass!! That’s why Eurus’ cell is made of “Elephant” glass and can vanish in an instant. The writers of this show knew we’d figured it all out and decided to create the “Sherlock changes fates and writes his own fiction whenever he wants” storyline to mess with the natural order. “Appointment in Samarra” is TJLC – is us. We knew what was going to happen, they knew that we knew, so they wrote “Appointment in Sumatra” to change their own fate and give everyone the middle finger. BUT you can’t really change fate, they even said so. They tried changing the outcome of Sherlock from what we knew was going to happen to what Sherlock wanted to happen – he goes somewhere nonsensical and becomes a pirate. They tried running from us, but even they know they can’t.
We didn’t allow them to break their own glass, so they created a completely ridiculous scenario in which they could: “Appointment in Sumatra”. Because they have dual timelines playing out like Clue, we’ll be getting the real fate soon.
I’m in shock.
Well played, Gatiss and Moffat. Well played.
