Hello! I need to understand something, Why Sherlock saw his brother (Mycroft) like a enemy in tpf?? For me Mycroft always was ready to do anything for him, and even Eurus get a hug from him, and John too, i think Mycroft is underrated and maybe in the next season he died "for good", he deserves the best although i'll be sad with his death

A few points here so I’ll answer them in turn:

1) I don’t think Sherlock did see Mycroft as an enemy. He was rightly pissed off with him at the start for hiding the truth about Eurus but they went on to work together and almost die for each other. Ultimately I feel they ended up on the same page (”he tried his best”).

2) Mycroft is ready to do anything for Sherlock, but that doesn’t always mean he does the right thing in the eyes of others (or even Sherlock himself).

3) He is underrated, criminally so. But then again I would say that.

4) I’m not sure there will be another series. If there is, then I don’t subscribe to the idea that Mycroft needs to be killed off. Even before S4 I didn’t agree with the “Mycroft needs to die in order to support Sherlock’s character development” point of view, and post S4 I think there’s even less reason now to kill him off than there ever was.

Sherlock has grown into the Legendary Detective, Mycroft has been exposed as a maker of less than stellar decisions that can’t always be trusted - and his well-intentioned meddling has been shown to have real and painful consequences. Sure, the Deus Ex Mycroft problem technically remains, but if there was to be a S5 (or some form of special) I think there would be a change in Mycroft as much as there would be in Sherlock. Now that Sherlock has ‘levelled up’ I think it would make sense for Mycroft to become something much more like ACD Mycroft - a far quieter, more ‘hands off’ armchair-based version that is there for Sherlock but only when Sherlock wants him to be.

  • Baby Holmes: *folding her arms; grumpy* Why do Mummy and Daddy have to have another baby?
  • Mycroft: *bored* Contraceptives aren't in their vocabulary.
  • Baby Holmes: *pouts* Why couldn't I go to the Hospital?
  • Mycroft: *raises an eyebrow* Because that's not the first memory you want of your little brother *shudders* Believe me.
  • Baby Holmes: *frowns* I hate him.
  • Mycroft: *dismissive* It won't last.
  • Baby Holmes: *confused* Whyyyy?
  • Mycroft: *rolls his eyes* Oh, I don't know. You'll notice he's dropped his favourite toy and tuck it next to him even though he's fast asleep. You'll be playing in the park, warning him not to touch the bees and then kissing his sting better. You'll never get to be Captain of the pirate ship, I'm afraid, but that doesn't matter *waves a hand* Walking the plank is just as fun.
  • Baby Holmes: ...
  • Baby Holmes: *blinks* Really?
  • Mycroft: *smiles* Yes.
  • Baby Holmes: *whines* What if he steals my stuff?
  • Mycroft: *chuckles* He'll bring you dead things, most likely. Anyway, it's worth it to see him trying to walk around in your massive shoes, tripping over the dog if not his own feet.
  • Baby Holmes: *confused* But we don't have a dog.
  • Mycroft: *quickly* No.
  • Baby Holmes: *kicks her legs* Uncle Mycroft?
  • Mycroft: Mmmm?
  • Baby Holmes: *scratches her head* Where do babies even come from?
  • Mycroft: *sighs* I have no idea. Ask your father. Don't take no for an answer.
  • Baby Holmes: *grins* Okay, Uncle Mycroft.
  • *meanwhile, at the Hospital*
  • Molly: *exhausted* So, Hamish Mycroft William? Or William John Siger?
  • Sherlock: *holding his son, smiling* The first one.
