My Top 10 Thoughts on Sherlock, Season 4, Episode 3:

10. So…..so, was Eurus his therapist? Or….was she wearing a wig? Did she use a double? We’re led to believe it was her, but her look is SO different than in the last episode…are they the same? I guess so. That part did confuse me, plus with the dark hair, Eurus does look a lot different than prior. Glad Watson didn’t die though….though, that leaves the question: How did they get Eurus back in prison? Did she go back? I may need to rewatch that scene.

9. I do appreciate all the information on Mycroft that we get in this episode: that he’s a sucker for chivalrous, noir romances (SUPER surprising for me!), that he is scared of not being in control, cannot stomach murder in his face, and in the end…is actually a good brother in a lot of respects. At least, later on, when he sacrifices himself or tries to….I’m glad we get this development on Mycroft. He’s still a terrible brother in a lot of ways, though, but still, not a complete emotionless reptile

8. There are quite a lot of deaths occurring in this episode, and in shocking ways…they do work quite well to establish how terrifying Eurus, the high-functioning psychopath works. I was genuinely scared throughout a lot of the second act of the story. It definitely raised the stakes and made her an antagonist to be wary of….speaking of antagonist to be wary of…

7. I really like how we had Moriarty FINALLY answered. And I liked it. A psychopath working with an equal psychopath. For a second, when he pops out of the chopper, I was scared that he actually survived somehow. Then we find out it’s a flashback and that all of the things she had done were recorded…I’m not sure when those were recorded, to be honest. I’m assuming she told him what to say and then he went and did it; leaving her the recordings after his death. I almost WISH that we’d been able to hear the conversation they’d had…but that’s a nice thing about the writing too; we’re allowed our imagination to fill in the gaps. I can just PICTURE the Eurus X Moriarty fan fiction developing as I type this….

6. So, we FINALLY got the Sherlolly scene we fans have waited on…I do, think, for now at least, that Sherlock loves Molly as a friend. I say this with all of the Sherlollyness in my heart wanting them to be more, but I was happy that Sherlock and Molly had this scene…though, immediately afterwards, we don’t get any aftermath scene. Even at the end of the episode, we see Molly pop in…what about that?! I would imagine it’d be awkward for them afterwards…hmmm…was Sherlock texting Molly at the end of the episode? Or the woman? Again, the writers leave a lot for the audience to speculate…and speculate we shall.

5. One thing we can’t speculate on is the fate of Redbeard…we finally realize who Redbeard was…Sherlock’s best friend. Euros, out of jealousy, murdered Sherlock’s best friend, and attempted to do it again. That scene where Sherlock figures it out was very well done…and I can completely see why someone would want to repress those memories, how traumatic it probably was for Sherlock and Mycroft both at that age. It’s a very tragic moment and reveal, and one that really shook me watching it.

4. I think that Mycroft and Sherlock’s relationship in this episode worked well; and while I think that my family personally would react a little harsher to finding out that Mycroft and “Uncle Rudi” had hidden away Sherlock’s sister, the end result wasn’t too drawn out and was handled best as it could be.

3. If I had to pick my least favorite part of the episode, it would be the “Plane” plot; I really was in suspense with how the little girl on the plane was going to “save” everyone in the end or was going to pass…and then we find out it’s all part of Eurus’s psychosis. I mean, I GET it, but it was all a bit forced and sort of deflated the tension at the end. That said, I did like that Sherlock was able to somewhat “reach” Eurus, but the manner in which it was executed just didn’t suit me personally.

2. That said, Eurus’s character was interesting; her desire to be close to Sherlock was also fascinating, especially when Sherlock decides to “Solve” the crisis and shoot himself to save his brother and his friend, John. The actress portraying her did a beautiful job creating a complex, and innocent, while terrifyingly powerful antagonist throughout the episode. Her frailty coupled with her power was engaging and made for one of the toughest villains Sherlock’s faced ever. I can definitely see why Moriarty was someone she was “treated” to.

1. I did love seeing 221 B Baker Street being rebuilt after the explosion at the end…the fact that Watson adds back the smiley face, and that their adventures continue on was a lovely addition. I still think Mary’s post-mortem videos are odd, but I love that she knew that even after she was gone, the mysteries would continue…and Sherlock holding little Rosie! ADORABLE! The fact that his “humanity” shows is so telling of how much Sherlock’s developed since Season One…it was just a perfect ending to the series, should it end there. 

Originally posted by cumberbatchaddiction

So, FINAL VERDICT? It’s a great episode; not perfect, by any means, but contains a lot of entertainment. While I would have liked more “aftermath” in the resolution of the episode, I did enjoy this episode and Series 4 as a whole. The character development and emotional roller coaster was worth the wait. I think my favorite parts are those that aren’t “spelled out” for us. I like when writers leave some things to our imagination, letting us predict which ending we believe…which works fine for my Sherlolly heart me. Keep up the good adventures, Dr. Watson and Mr. Holmes. Cheers to a great season!

Pick-Up and Chase

After she accidentally trips into Adrien and apologizes about “falling for him,” Marinette learns that he’s no match for cheesy pick-up lines–whether they were unintended or not. And while she finds it flattering that he turns into a flustered mess with only a few words, Marinette comes to regret making him uncomfortable. That is, until she learns he’s Chat Noir. At which point the phrase “just desserts” becomes a permanent fixture in her everyday plans.

A story in which Adrien is flustered, Marinette is smooth as glass at dropping lines, and Chat Noir gets the romance he was always asking for–even if he doesn’t quite know how to handle it.


Part 8

He’d never run so fast in his life.

Running across rooftops wasn’t exactly advised to begin with. He’d nearly fallen down into the street twice as a result of his scrambling haste. But, by the looks of it, he’d beat Ladybug to the mansion. His night vision, as well as amplified senses, didn’t detect her anywhere, and so—propelling his staff down from the rooftop—he pushed himself over the final street and aimed for the large windows that opened into his bedroom.

One of the long, glass panes was already propped ajar, and so he easily shoved his way through. Pulling his staff in after him, he bounded down to a stop, transformation dispersing before he’d even hit the ground.

Panting, chest heaving, he did his best to gather himself. Plagg was buzzing around nearby, no doubt about to ask for camembert, but before he could, a smooth voice sent him skittering into the shadows while Adrien nearly jumped clean out of his own skin.

“Good evening.”

Whipping around, eyes wide, he caught sight of the silhouette hanging upside-down before his open window. No doubt she was attached to the overhanging roof. The skies were clear, and so the moon ignited her figure, blue eyes shining as she smiled.

“L-Ladybug,” he managed to choke out, still trying to catch his breath after his quick scamper across town.

“Hello, Adrien,” she said sweetly, gracefully sweeping down until she was standing on the edge of the window. Her yoyo zipped in a second later, which she then hooked around her hip before she smoothly stretched down into the room. She was walking closer, a suggestive grin on her face and her hands clasped coyly behind her back.

Adrien thought there was a good chance he’d simply die of panic—panic mixed with elation—right then and there.

“H-h-hi, Ladybug,” he managed to stammer out, trying his best to get his composure together and failing the closer she got. “What, uh, what brings you… here?” He smiled awkwardly. She eventually came to a stop right in front of him, so close that he had to look down in order to keep eye contact.

“I have a question for you, Mr. Agreste,” she replied, reaching up and placing a gentle finger atop his chest.

He gulped.

Part 7

“What are they doing?” Marinette asked, the two girls watching from the shade of the doorway. Down the stairs and to the side of Adrien’s car—which was parked as usual in front of the school—stood the boy in question, as well as Nino. They were leaning in close, talking it appeared, though there was some gesturing. Nino had a hand on Adrien’s shoulder, while Adrien held his fists up between them, pumping them repeatedly while he continued muttering.

Alya smirked. “He’s psyching himself up,” she explained. “You know, the good ol’ pep talk.”

“For what?”

“For you!” Alya clapped her on the back.

“Oh…” Marinette bit the inside of her cheek, pondering the notion before she grabbed Alya by the arm and dragged her inside.

“I thought we were waiting for them,” Alya said. That was the whole reason they’d been loitering up by the door. But Marinette had decided on a change of plans. If Adrien was to the point where he was anticipating her approach, she needed to change tactics. Perhaps less of a surprise would be more shocking to him.

Assuring Alya that she had everything under control, the two split up once they reached they were in the locker room, Marinette doing her best to act as naturally as possible. She managed to catch Adrien and Nino’s voices as they entered, and so waited long enough for them to reach their lockers before she shut her own and headed around the row.

“Alya!” she called, tone friendly, and waved when her best friend looked up.
