I dont think that Moftiss would leave any "clues" (especially like reflections on glass) for us or anything...

 

... and when they DO leave clues, they actually tend to be red herrings.  I've never seen such a subtle red herring as that laundry truck in "Reichenbach"!

 

 

One of the few that may not have been a red herring (depending on your view of the reveal in TEH) was the squash ball from Reichenbach.  Moftiss tend to be subtle in their clue approach, red herring or not.

Ah yes, I noticed the squash ball when re-watching the show for the 2nd time. But one would have to know what it can be used for in order to name it "a clue" - I doubt that anybody thought the ball was of some importance when they saw Sherlock playing with it... :)

Actually, I never really noticed the truck in "The Reichenbach Fall"...

Yeah, they are. In TEH, Sherlock hears voices (well, just John's) while he's investigating that mysterious skeleton. It's not that much of a stretch to assume that it's from drugs -- auditory hallucinations are common when you're high.

Somebody either already knew what that type of ball could be used for, or else figured it out pretty quick, because the idea was on the internet within a month or two -- it was first mentioned on this forum on March 5th, and I'd heard about it before that.  But, as you say, that certainly wasn't the first thing that popped into my head when I watched the episode.

 

I assume you mean that the truck didn't seem important to you either, something like the ball?  I didn't notice it at first either, because I was looking for a different kind of truck.  Escape by garbage truck had been quite a cliche on American television in the 80's.

Wow, okay...

Yes, I re-watched the scene carefully again and - yeah - I get that people thought the truck was involved. :)

I am trying my best to keep an open mind about the next series, seeing as series 3 really took me by surprise (and shock). I'd rather not be as shocked next time around - and I don't think I will be. TEH and HLV served as eye-openers for me that most anything could happen.

 

I really cannot, or don't dare to, predict whether or not Mary will die. I do predict, however, that it won't happen in the special. Maybe in the last episode of series 4, but no sooner than that. I think there is to be more development on her character first, and I wonder if her past might catch up with her somehow.

 

I think there might be more casework again. The last series we had an episode revolving around Sherlock's return and reunion with John, and one revolving around John and Mary's wedding. With that out of the way, there should be plenty of opportunity for a more case-oriented (if not case-based) series.

You never know what the guys will come up with - but  usually it is thrilling, exciting and creates lots of discussion!

Well hello, Harpo!!!!! :welcome:

 

You were in it? Maybe once we've all had a chance to see it, you'd be willing to tell us a little bit what it was like to be there? No pressure! XD

Gentle reminder to go to the Six Thatchers thread with episode content, as per forum rules. :wave:

 

eta: *Real* episode content, that is. If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to keep speculating here, of course. :smile:

Thanks for the reminder, Harpo. Here in the US it's showing in "selected" theaters (i.e., not many) for a couple of nights a little later in the week. Check your local listings!

I've seen this, but I've chosen to ignore it/believe it to be some kind of trick.
