OMG SHERLOCK.

I’m sorry. If you were disappointed with the newest season of Sherlock (many people are), then this post is not for you. If I wanted straightforward murder mysteries being solved by people named Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, I would watch Elementary. I don’t, so here we are.

Am I biased because of this face? Of course I’m biased. Look at this face!

I loved how all of the characters in the show grew this season. We got to know John as a human being, Mary as a human being and Sherlock as a human being. The series till now had focussed on Sherlock slowly learning to accept human interaction. This season made John become human by cheating on Mary and their dysfunctional marriage, and Mary be human by running away instead of talking to John. We got to see just why Sherlock is what he is, and the traumatising Redbeard incident that turned a normal, clever, happy child into a high-functioning sociopath. The last brilliant  episode was intensely breathtaking and bittersweet at the same time, a great swan song for a series I’ll  miss dearly.

    1. Yeah. It felt like a finale. Moffatt and Gatiss want to do more, but I doubt that after the series has come to a point where it can end, Cumberbatch or Freeman will give it much time from their busy schedules.
