If you haven't seen "His Last Vow" (Series 3, Episode 3 of Sherlock), then...SPOILER ALERT!
Despite a few minor disappointments (How did Sherlock really fake his death? What was the point of the cruel joke on John in the subway car? Did we really need Sherlock to puke on the carpet?), I thoroughly enjoyed this third series. "His Last Vow" was as excellent an episode as I've ever seen. Charles Augustus Magnussen was a truly creepy villain. And the relationship among Sherlock, John and Mary was really nicely done. Here are a few of my favorite moments:
I've seen complaints from some Sherlockians that there wasn't enough mystery in the third series, or that some of the plot twists didn't make sense, or that the third series was a disappointment to them. Hey, to each his own. But, apart from not knowing the "real" solution to Sherlock faking his death (or not being sure whether I know it or not), I found the third series of Sherlock to be an amazing ride, especially "His Last Vow." Now let's just hope we don't have to wait another TWO YEARS...
