Good things about TLD (in no particular order)

- John looking genuinely offended when people don’t believe he writes the blog

- “the man we both love”

- Sherlock asking John if he’s okay because he doesn’t want him to leave yet

- HUG + “it is what it is”

- “I’m Sherlock Holmes I wear the Damn hat [ISN’T THAT RIGHT MARY?]”

- Mycroft being asked out by Lady Smallwood and just not ??? getting it ???

- Sherlock complaining that the vase he’s drinking from isn’t clean

- Imaginary Mary being hilarious and adorable and a total badass (also seemingly a hardcore johnlock shipper)

- Learning so much of what John thinks but doesn’t dare to admit through imaginary Mary

- “You’re done with the world being explained to you by a man. Well who isn’t.”

- “I DON’T WANT TO DIE” (broke my fucking heart)

- Bad cereal puns

- “IT’s funNY CoS It’S TruE”

- MRS HUDSON kidnapping Sherlock in a boot and forcing him to meet John and owning a badass car and being on the phone with the British government while driving way past speed limit listening to Beethoven and being chased by the police.

- Spelling Fuck off on the tracer

- “You’re suicidal, you’re allowed chips”

-  “Taking your own life. Interesting expression. Taking it from who? Once it’s over it’s not you who’ll miss it. Your own death is something that happens to everybody else. Your life is not your own. Keep your hands off it.” honestly one of my favorite quotes ever

- The way the episode dealt with self harm and suicide in general really

- Faith / Eurus was so charming for some reason

- Yay Irene Adler mention

- John Watson owning up to how shitty he’s been lately and hence allowing me to stop hating him

- Also John finally being able to cope with his grief and guilt and reaching some kind of internal peace with Mary and himself

- Sherlock and John reunited again

- thE TWIST AT THE END (I genuinely thought it was Moriarty for a second though)

The BBC has released an official synopsis for Series 4, Episode 2:

Sherlock - The Lying Detective

In episode two of this new series, written by Steven Moffat, Sherlock faces perhaps the most chilling enemy of his long career: the powerful and seemingly unassailable Culverton Smith - a man with a very dark secret indeed.

Benedict Cumberbatch returns as Sherlock Holmes, with Martin Freeman as John Watson, Mark Gatiss as Mycroft, Rupert Graves as Inspector Lestrade, Una Stubbs as Mrs Hudson, Amanda Abbington as Mary Watson, Louise Brealey as Molly Hooper and Toby Jones as Culverton Smith.

Picking up from where we left off…

John and Mycroft helped Mary fake her death. Sherlock wasn’t in on the plan.

John got hooked up to TD 12 to make him forget about the fake death–that’s why he was acting like Mary was truly dead in The Lying Detective.

Before John’s memory was erased though, he wrote a note to Sherlock and asked Molly to deliver it.

Whether by accident or design, something about John’s note gave away the fake death to Sherlock.

Sherlock Holmes needed his memory to be erased now, too.

Mary and Mycroft knew Sherlock wouldn’t be likely to agree to a memory wipe on his own, so they set their own plan in motion.

Mary left a video message for Sherlock encouraging him to engage in risky behavior in a bid to reconcile with John.

Mycroft and Mary then sought out Wiggins. The whole fake death plan was going down because they were trying to go up against bad guys known as the Scowrers (or that’s their name is in canon, they may well end up with a different one here). Wiggins used to be a Scowrer, and Mary knew it. So they were able to either convince or blackmail Wiggins into helping them out.

When Sherlock predictably went back on drugs as a way to mess himself up to the point of John not being able to resist helping, Wiggins was there to provide.

Remember Sherlock’s own words from His Last Vow, though: “Wiggins is an excellent chemist.”

See the “coffee” he’s pointing at? That’s an IV bag full of some brownish fluid.

Sherlock flashed to the same stuff briefly while he was throwing “Faith’s” gun into the Thames, because that moment reminded him of what he knew about the fake death. What the TD 12 had made him forget.

Wiggins mixed up some kind of drug cocktail with TD 12. Sherlock (knowingly) gets high and (unknowingly) gets his memory erased simultaneously, thinking it was his own idea the whole time.

(Another option for this is that the effects of TD 12 had proved too weak for Sherlock’s unusual mind, and Sherlock was instead upgraded to the stronger TD 13. In which case, that’s what the post-it on Mycroft’s fridge was referring to. But I’m going to keep calling it TD 12 until someone in the show acknowledges the existence of another version.)

The connection between the drugs and TD 12 was also foreshadowed when John checked Sherlock for signs he’d been using again by pulling up Sherlock’s right sleeve.

Sound familiar?

Eventually, Sherlock went so far off the deep end that Wiggins bolted from 221B.

Mycroft then brought a team of agents into the flat, claiming that he was trying to figure out “what drove Sherlock off the rails.”

The reality was Mycroft already knew exactly what had done it. But he did use the opportunity to feel out whether John had caught on yet.

Mycroft also had his agents “collect evidence,” which was really just an excuse to get the incriminating TD 12 / drug cocktail remains taken away.

Like it never even happened.

Okay so Trans Morty is great…

but has anyone given any thought to trans Morticia (or Molly, whatever)??

Can you imagine what life would be like for her as Morty? How uncomfortable and difficult opening up to her family would be? How frightened and lonely she’d feel not know who to trust and then all of a sudden Rick shows up, and it’s like he just knows. He knows that ‘Morty’ hates to be called by name, he knows ‘Morty’ takes whatever Summer won’t miss (clothes she doesn’t wear, bad makeup, ect.) and hides it in the back of the closet, and he just knows ‘Morty’ can’t keep pretending, that it’s just too much of a physical and emotional strain.

So one day, after wandering around in the depths of space, he just sort of says something like “Y-you know, it’s…it’s okay. I know, alright? You shou-uaghn’t feel guilty or bad about it. And like hell I want you to pretend to be something you aren’t if it makes you so goddamn unhappy. I-I-I just…I want you to know.”

You can imagine that whole emotional ordeal afterwards of course, how Rick isn’t really the comforting type but tries his best and says the rest of the family doesn’t need to know right away. When that time does come around not everyone understands right away (except maybe Summer because she’s the smart one) but eventually they do, and Morticia/Molly starts to actually accept and love herself and Rick is caring and supportive for once in his life towards his granddaughters.

Tl;dr Trans Morticia/Molly is too lovely for words and I’m just the worst at making dumb headcannons ~
