1: The Great Game
This episode was so good, man. I can't even describe how much I enjoyed it. Not only was the mystery one that I really enjoyed*, but there was also a certain psychopath.
*I love the classic bomb-strapped-to-someone's-chest-someone-else-telling-them-what-to-say-life-hanging-in-balance mysteries.
OH STOOOP. He's so wonderful!! I really like psychopaths in stories. I would like to clarify that I like psychopaths only because they make stories so much more interesting, not because I am one. Jim Moriarty is a treasure.
2: The Reichenbach Fall
I'm sorry. I know this episode was heartbreaking. I cried just as much as the next person*, but this episode wasn't just heartbreaking. It was touching, funny, sad, confusing**, and it made me question what I knew. Stories that can not only evoke emotion, but evoke so many all in less than two hours is something that I love.
* If not more, because let's be honest, I was a crying bundle of blankets and emotions. My parents didn't know what was wrong until I managed to blubber "...Sherlock...he was his friend."
** I almost believed that Sherlock was a fraud myself. I was ashamed.
3: The Sign of Three
|MARY YOU PRECIOUS CUPCAKE|
This episode was just...fun. The threat wasn't to Mary, John, or Sherlock, so I could breath easy. Every moment of that episode was fantastic. Mary is a doll. She is so perfect for John.
|Can these two get any cuter? I didn't think so.|
|John speaks the TRUTH|
|Yeah, that's getting a bit scary now.|
The afterparty was quite sad indeed. I feel like most people have been in that situation at some point, which makes it even more sad, because we remember what it felt like to not belong. BUT MOLLY SAW HIM. SHE ALWAYS SEES HIM.
