I do enjoy the upgraded character but am vexed by promotion of ANCIENT sms texting. Sherlock would most certainly use XMPP texting and SIP texting. Read more

recap: Newspaper publisher Charles Augustus Magnussen is summoned before a government board and questioned about his influence over British prime ministers.

recap: After Moriarty kills himself, Sherlock stands on the edge of the building and watches John. He tells his friend to keep watching him and that he's leaving a note, because that's what people do, and then jumps off the ledge. Meanwhile, two men haul away Moriarty's corpse, and then put on a Sherlock mask and eye-coloring contact lenses. A bicyclist knocks over John while the bungee cord attached to Sherlock stops him from hitting the sidewalk and swings him into the window where Molly is waiting. He then kisses Molly and walks away, while the two men haul Moriarty's disguised corpse out and put it on the sidewalk where Sherlock would have landed.

He confirms that "Sherlock" is dead before the EMTs haul the corpse away... read more.
