i know this is hard and i understand being angry and heartbroken because this is taking the game too far. but i also love the real life meta levels of this, that they’re such ACD fanboys they want to relive their favourite author’s life and then punch the world with the Real Ending.
if this is true, if we are right about the fourth ep, then this is a mind blowing rug pull on literally everyone around the world. they’re making casuals beg for something better, they’ve played the game so well even casuals can see john and sherlock belong together. isn’t that incredible? isn’t this exactly what we all wanted too?
yes, they underestimated their fans, and yes, they hurt us terribly, and yes, we should be angry. send complaints to the bbc, to hartswood films, sign the petition, etc, let them know what this did to us. but some crazy part of me thinks that maybe they also counted on us, clever so clever tjlc, to figure it out. and, once again, we have, haven’t we?
i’ve been through every stage of grief after tfp, and now i’m back to my roots, where i feel most comfortable - a conspiracy nutter. but i’m only a nutter if i’m wrong.
