Have you noticed that Moriarty talks about pressure points in TRF? It's when he goes to 221B after his trial to goad Sherlock. He explains that he was able to blackmail the jury into finding him not guilty - "Every person has their pressure point. Something they want to protect from harm. Easy-peasy." I didn't notice anything at the time but it seems striking after watching HLV with the whole CAM thing. Thoughts? Initially, I'd speculate CAM works for/with Moriarty.

Thanks for the ask!!

and hmmmmm. I guess my headcanon up to this point was that CAM and Moriarty perhaps knew each other/knew of each other’s methods pre-TRF but that CAM hadn’t been working for Moriarty directly. He just seemed too self-righteous or something to me. I’d chalked up the pressure points line to Mofftiss re-using language that viewers would have been familiar with and could use to connect the two as both being baddies and also connect similar means of getting at people – the pressure points thing is definitely an effective motivator to get people to respond to blackmail, something Sherlock hates (and also has queer coding implications, but that’s another post…) Anyway, your ask has really made me think about this more because on this show is anything a coincidence!?! If Moriarty knew about CAM and his mind palace of secrets on people, wouldn’t he have liked to get involved somehow in order to possibly control that flow of information? Would CAM have offered information to Moriarty to help his criminal network?

Anyone else want to chime in with thoughts?
