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.

In TLD, when Sherlock meets Faith, Sherlock is already withdrawing. We see his hand shake. He’s not used for a few hours at least, and by the time he goes out into the night, that’s a full night of wandering without any express usage. He says he’s high, which he probably is, but it’s gotta be residual… this is important because it means when he loses his grip on reality, first where he screams on the bridge with Faith on the bench and then with the Culverton mind palace scene, he seems genuinely out of place and disoriented: he’s been using for weeks. this isn’t his usual reaction to heroin. Wiggins points out that he’s ‘had too much, and that’s HIM saying that’, but we never see him ‘top up’ and yet he makes a point to do so in front of John so they’re not shy about showing that sort of thing.

Is it possible that Eurus drugged him with DT12 during this time? Perhaps when he begins losing it on the bridge, he seems to black out for a moment or two, which would give Eurus time enough to drug him and then scarper? 

idk, the whole scene where he’s walking up walls and freaking out doesn’t really seem like a heroin symptom; heroin is a numbing agent. it leaves you feeling detached and floaty, it’s not a psycho-stimulant. it shouldn’t make him hallucinate the way that he does. I’m just thinking out loud mostly but I think it’s possible Sherlock is dosed with something other than heroin, which is why he goes off the rails the way that he does, because heroin doesn’t really explain the insanity of his walls and the shakespeare speech - unless he’s using cocaine on the side, too (because all of that screams stimulants, not depressants). 

just thinking out loud mostly

So if Sherlock was in fact at baker street during the entirety of The Six Thatchers, that means he sent Wiggins and the police to secure the last Thatcher, Wiggins jumped out and scared Ajay away, he broke open the bust as per his orders from Sherlock, and the police rushed in. When Sherlock asked about what happened, Wiggins said, “It was totally crazy, Sherlock. We fought SO hard. We broke through glass and landed in the pool. It was epic.” - so Sherlock envisioning it put himself in that scenario to take all the mental credit. Don’t forget we did see Wiggins lurking in the shadows in one of those trailers. He could’ve been doing the leg work while Sherlock sat and waited as a target.

“Hello dear,’’ Mrs. Hudson greeted you and you smiled but didn’t say anything back. You took a deep breath, it had been a week since you last visited Sherlock as you had finally gotten fed up with all his bullshit then, which was a surprise to both him and yourself as you had been with him through a lot of bullshit, more than you should’ve really put up with.

You had met Sherlock in University, you were studying [favourite subject] and once day you were working in the library on a project when you met him, he was rude and basically the exactly same he was now. It was funny though to think back, at first you weren’t really interested in Sherlock but he seemed rather interested in you which is why he did something rather close to stalking but you eventually forgave him for that. It was specially funny back then to see him as now he had fully embraced his height and was comfortable with it but when you had met him he was the ‘awkward tall’ and didn’t seem to really fit in his body which didn’t help with his less than lacking people skills.

You had truly been through all his bullshit, the two of you become somewhat good friends through University which made Mycroft force himself to inspect you and had a somewhat experience like John had, Mycroft was impressed with all your knowledge of your subject and a few others that related to it and deemed you somewhat worthy, you could hold an intelligent conversation with him which was more than most people could which is why he left you alone from then on.

A few years after you two had finished University you had discovered about Sherlock’s drug abuse and that wasn’t something you took lightly, there was a moment where you two had a non-existent friend-ship but eventually he apologized and didn’t necessarily promise you to stop, he promised you to only use it in extreme cases when he had to deal with boredom and you hesitantly agreed to that, knowing that he got bored easily but also that he recently had been solving a few cases for Scotland Yard

You were happy when he met John and found it very nice to know he was normal and he was surprised Sherlock was able to maintain a normal person as his friend for so long. John was able to vent with you about all the things Sherlock did which you had experienced before and it was nice for him and for you to talk to someone who’s able to relate.

You were shocked when the news hit you that Sherlock had killed himself but then Mycroft had appeared at your door, explaining the situation. Sherlock wasn’t dead but Moriarity was, you didn’t really know Moriarity at all. When he came onto the scene Sherlock was extremely careful with you and made sure to keep you at more of a distance so he wouldn’t use you, you understood it when he explained it. It was extremely hard though, you tried to drop subtle hints to John that Sherlock was alive but it was hopeless. You tried to give him the best support you could and were relieved when he started to move on with Mary because he was getting his life back on track rather than dwelling on the past. He made a very active effort to stay in touch which was nice.

You sighed, you did really put up with all the bullshit there was going on but then you had gotten sick of it, what happened to Mary was horrible and very sad and you were also consumed with grief, she had become a good friend of yours, and you understood John but you just couldn’t get around how he blamed it on Sherlock. He didn’t seem to remember how the years were when Sherlock was supposedly dead which made you rather angry with John but it was worse with Sherlock.

You opened the door and was surprised at Sherlock who was on the couch, his eyes shut, and Wiggins who was sitting behind a laptop. You didn’t like Wiggins but you didn’t necessarily hate him, he was okay but it was just the drugs part that made you almost hate him.

“He’s actually sleeping?’’ You said, almost amused.

“Sort of, passed out, I had to drag him up here. Mrs. Hudson seems to terrified to come in here.’’ He replied and you nodded. Within a few seconds he was gone. You looked at the different pictures which were pinned into the wall, it were just a few above the couch of someone you had seen on the telly but you couldn’t quite remember his name, he was someone important or something like that.

“What are you doing here?’’ Sherlock asked as you were towering over him, your eyes still on the pictures. “Who is he?’’ You asked and Sherlock grunted.

“Culverton Smith, serial killer.’’ He replied once he got up, you gave him a look. “Any evidence?’’

“Just know it.’’ He replied and you laughed. “Of course you do.’’

He smiled for a second and then asked: “What are you doing here?’’

“Well, dunno. I still don’t know whether to apologize or be angry with you after last week,’’ You said and started to walk over to the other side of the room, casting a curious glance at the knife stabbed in something. “I’ve been through so much stupid bullshit with you, drug abuse, you pretending to be dead, stalking me at uni, remember that?’’ You said with a small chukle and he nodded.

“You need to stop this because I’m sick of all this bullshit. I’ve been through enough for ten life times, with both you and your lovely brother who thinks it’s appropriate to stalk someone if they meet you,’’ Sherlock smiled. “There are plenty of people who care for you, even go as far to love you.’’ You said with a tired sigh.

“Like who?’’ He countered.

“Mrs. Hudson, Mycroft, John and no don’t you dare comment because he does, basically all the people who you solved the murder of a friend or relative are thankful to you for god’s sake! Even me.’’ You said, frustration was obvious

“You love me?’’ He said, almost in disbelief.

“Oh shut up you’re supposedly the great consulting detective, too smart to use the tile of private detective. Of course I do, seems everyone who meets you is slightly charmer or scared away.’’

“I’m sorry.’’ And that’s where it all started.

INFP [The Dreamer]

There’s no doubt about it, INFPs are unique. They lead their lives according to an inner compass that can often lead them off the beaten path and in their own direction. INFPs are also gifted with a creative spark that allows them to generate new, unconventional and even revolutionary ideas. Their thoughts and ideas are frequently focused on people, and they have an easy time relating to - and understanding - their fellow human beings. In fact, INFPs often appear to have an x-ray vision into the inner-workings of other people. Most successful INFPs attribute success to an innate ability to flex their style to meet others more than halfway. This makes them naturals at effective communication, and they are usually considered to be excellent listeners – rarely judging, just seeking to understand. INFPs have very strong personal values, which have a large impact on their actions and decisions. They seek to feel that they are living their lives in accordance with their values and what “feels” right to them.

John Smith
ISTP [The Virtuoso]

Stoic, quiet, great under pressure, and logic-driven, ISTPs would much rather just DO it, then TALK about it. In fact, they speak the fewest words on average of any type. Unlikely to interrupt others or fight for the floor, ISTPs often think best when alone. They typically prefer to gather information, come to a conclusion, and then (sometimes) share their thoughts. Often seen as mysterious, ISTPs are the type most likely to surprise others with their actions and decisions, because they don’t naturally keep others in the loop. However, when the situation calls for persuasion, ISTPs can turn on the charm and have a fun way about them that lets others to relax, smile and get on board. Keenly observant of their physical surroundings, nothing gets past an ISTP. They find it easier than most to live completely “in the moment” most of the time, not as distracted or stressed as types who focus on the past or future.  

Governor Ratcliffe
ENTJ [The Commander]

Enthusiastic, direct and charismatic, ENTJs are one of the most high energy, talkative types. They are typically very comfortable sharing about their lives and are much more likely than their INTJ colleagues to “think out loud.” Highly articulate, ENTJs have a naturally bold and dynamic presence that tends to command the attention of the room. Often their tremendous outward self confidence and excellent verbal skills draw others to them, but can at times overpower or intimidate certain personality types.  ENTJs are the type that have to work the hardest to not interrupt others (usually in an effort to fight for “the floor” or avoid hearing excessive details). They don’t necessarily check in with their own emotions when making decisions, and can at times overlook others’ emotional reactions. Strategic visionaries, ENTJs excel at objectively analyzing and planning for the long-term needs of an organization. Much less sensitive than their ENFJ colleagues, ENTJs usually would rather be “right” than be “liked,” and can be very direct (to the point of being blunt).

ESFJ [The Supporter]

Warm, high energy, talkative, friendly and highly emotionally intelligent, ESFJs are the quintessential “people” people, and tend to develop instant rapport with and bring out the best in virtually everyone. Energized most by a highly social environment, ESFJs tend to require very little alone time. They are perhaps the easiest type to get to know, usually sharing lots of detailed information about themselves early in conversations, and drawing the same out of others. Often feeling things more deeply than others, they have immediate emotional reactions that show up on their very expressive faces. They may have to force themselves to wait before responding when they feel emotionally charged. ESFJs are also the type most gifted at “reading” the emotional state and style of others – and adapting their style to be most pleasing to whomever they are with at the moment, being exceptionally diplomatic and cautious to avoid unnecessarily offending anyone.

ISTJ [The Duty-Fulfiller]

ISTJs tend to value what has worked well in the past and find comfort in the “known,” making them one of two types that most desire structure, routine and planning ahead. ISTJs are some of the most dependable, organized, responsible, and meticulous people on the planet, and often live by the rule: “my word is my bond.” If an ISTJ has made a commitment to do something (no matter how insignificant), they will do everything in their power to get it done - and on time. ISTJs are exceptionally playful and highly closure-focused, and when it comes to decisions, and they have a tendency to want to “get down to business” and “cut to the chase” quicker than most other types. ISTJs are highly logic-driven, and tend to make decisions based on what makes the most logical sense from an objective viewpoint. They are not nearly as aware or as swayed by how they themselves or others personally feel about a decision as their ISFJ colleagues. ISTJs would rather be respected and thought of as fair than thought of as nice. 

ISFJ [The Defender]

Warm, patient, loyal, and exceptionally kind, ISFJs take great pleasure in helping others in concrete, practical ways, and tend to put other people’s needs before their own. In fact, the ISFJ’s generous disposition, combined with their sense of duty and discomfort with conflict or confrontation, makes it very difficult for them to say “no.” As a result, it is common for others to over-rely on them. ISFJs are also one of the types MOST highly attuned to the emotional reactions of others (and their own feelings as well), and they focus a lot of energy on maintaining harmony. As one of the more sensitive types, ISFJs take criticism very seriously (and often to heart), and tend to withdraw, not engage. They do their very best every day to please others and exceed expectations, and they thrive on private positive feedback.
