Watching (or trying to watch) the episode on LOCAST was frustrating. It went to a white screen and I did not know if the show would continue. After ten minutes of white screen, I turned on the cell phone app. It showed clearly, but they kept interrupting the episode to request donations.
Don't have time for those photos, but I do need to comment on the episode.
Anti, I don't remember how to do Spoilers but if you're still having a problem then I guess you can't read this. I do wonder how staff gets around that since all our posts have to be read by staff.
Sherlock's father is finally on his side.
That world leader has been a world leader before, but an exiled one banished to Paris who was angry at everything and everyone. Valerie Bertinelli was an American in Paris in that series. She was also Margaret Cho's mother in the first sitcom about Asians.
It was not a traditional episode but there was a mystery to solve. At last, a third-grade teacher was discovered who was still upset over the shooting at her school. Sherlock had her kidnapped. To find out who was killing people, he made up a fictional person to post online and be at a certain place. She carried a gun and was approached by someone who talked her into working for the billionaire. The method of contacting her was really amazing. She later regretted what she had done.
I know why that blood was blue!
Seriously, I hope it's not true there's only the one way to test for bacteria in those situations. But a synthetic version sounds like it would work.
Watson directed the episode.
Gregson wasn't happy Sherlock had kept information from him and he wasn't too happy to find out why he was shot.
Something was said that suggests Sherlock could be killed in the finale.
Bell had to do a lot of searching to find out who was killed and Sherlock couldn't tell him why.
It was Watson doing silly stuff this time and Sherlock discovered her. Everyone couldn't find anything.
There was an amazing ending last night which would have made a good ending for the series, but we have one more. And there has to be an investigation of what happened.
The series took quite a dark turn but was soon back to normal. Sherlock and the others survived due to his brilliant observations,
Bones are TV-PG? ?I guess there has to be blood for TV-14.
One guest star is named Holmes.
I'll wait because it's so late.
I did not see the previous episode(s) and I am sorry I missed the scenes with Sherlock and his father. If this was not the final season, I would be extremely disappointed that he was killed. Still, I am very disappointed and I hoped they were mistaken about it being Morland. When Sherlock said that was not his father's car and then said it was not his father's watch, I wondered if someone else was in the car. Apparently, that really was Morland's swan song.
I was prepared to like Reichenbach, but he is now on the kill list. The title of the episode was misleading because Reichenbach did not fall.
Sherlock took a big risk in letting Reichenbach take his gun and shoot him. I was surprised when Sherlock showed up at the end and it has not dawned on me yet what he is planning.
Does Joan know? She seemed very concerned about Sherlock's survival.

Someone mentioned there was a lot of blood where Sherlock was shot. I believe he intentionally fell over the rail and into the water. When we saw Sherlock in the final scene, he was wearing a sling for his arm so I think he really was injured.

I enjoyed the finale very much. They jumped three years and covered a lot of things instead of leaving plot holes.
Congratulations to Captain Bell. When he investigated Holmes murder, it opened the way for them to legally uncover Reichenbach’s murders. Joan was aware of Sherlock’s ruse, but waited a while before informing Bell and Gregson.
We did not see Moriarty, but her people became involved when an attorney delivered a package to the brownstone and said it was from Moriarty. Joan demolished Sherlock’s tombstone which was a signal for him to return. I was happy to see him.
Bell became violent when he saw Sherlock. Police brutality. Capt. Gregson hugged Sherlock and had a telling conversation with him.
We saw the bees but no turtle.
I was not thinking about the NSA agent, but McNally showed up with a proposition for Sherlock.
After revealing Joan was ill, they cut to a scene at a cemetery one year later. They fooled me.
When Sherlock sniffled and rushed to hug Joan, tears welled up in my eyes. That was special.
I laughed when Sherlock indicated he was willing to dig up the grave.
I may have to wait to make some of my comments. It's so late and I have so much to say.
Let me start with comments about earlier episodes.
I was relieved to hear the name Google. I was afraid that in this world Odin's company had the most popular search engine. They could, however, have said Bing.
The cop cars that responded when Sherlock was shot were a Ford, a Chevy and a Dodge. Usually cop cars match.
Also, I need to go off topic. The man with the package from Moriarty looked familiar. He was the star of a sitcom that lasted only one season but was actually quite good. He was in charge of a group of aliens from another planet. A human family moved into a neighborhood where all the other residents were aliens, claiming to be from another country. Most of the comedy came from their problems understanding Earth customs. This man was absolutely hilarious.
Now for this episode.
I guess we were all supposed to think Watson didn't know. I noticed she smiled more than usual, especially with Arthur (Conan Doyle?). She even smiled with Sherlock.
But we learned quickly not only did she know but she's the one who planted evidence. When I saw it had been three years I wondered how they could have still thought Sherlock was dead because surely the evidence would have been discovered to be fake.
Sherlock's place looked so nice. Watson must have gotten tired of it being like it was, and downstairs it still was.
I expected Bell to hug Sherlock. He was more like he used to be.
Captain? Really? We know now he didn't join the FBI but I hardly think he was ready for that job. There must have been others with more experience. His hair looked exactly the same.
I liked the scene with Gregson.
Sherlock's manners weren't what they used to be. Actually, they were. But it was amazing how compassionate he has become. I would have never expected his reaction to Watson's health.
Yes, we saw the bees.
I thought surely Sherlock would go to work for the NSA man and was surprised he didn't get in trouble too.
Continuing to pretend he was dead may have been too much.
I wondered how in the world they would finish the investigation.
When we saw the cemetery I hoped that was Gregson. When I learned it was a her I hoped it was Moriarty. But why would the man offer condolences for her? And why is Sherlock taking care of Watson over?
I was so relieved when we saw Watson. I wonder why she needed a wig. If she was cured, there would have been enough time for that much hair to grow back.
I liked how it ended.
I'm sure there's more. I need to find a link I found on another web site. The people in charge talked about why they did what they did, and another possible ending.
