Since Series Four is still 36 days away, the majority of us are rewatching the older seasons like crazy. During all this waiting and rewatching, some theories about our favourite detective and his NOT-boyfriend John Watson came to our minds. There are some older theories, like the Johnlock Conspiracy, that we have already discussed but here are also some newer theories that might just blow your mind. Let’s get started!
Mary is going to die
Yes, you’ve heard me right. Mary Watson, John’s wife, the woman with the dark past, the woman who nearly killed Sherlock Holmes. I am quite sure that she is going to die because, and this is probably the main “evidence”, she dies in the books. Yes, I know, our favourite series isn’t an exact copy of the books, but still, you can find similarities in books and series, so why would they leave this major point out of the plot? And either way, I am quite sure that Mary has a lot of enemies through her former “work” who would be interested in seeing her dead.
In the following recently released image, you can see John standing in a building. For me it looks a bit like a church. Yes, it is blurry, but still. Why would he be in a church? Maybe the christening of his child? Or it is the funeral of his wife…
[It could also be a Johnlock wedding, but I promised not to talk about Johnlock]
Moriarty really is dead
We saw it. Sherlock saw it. Moriarty shot himself right into the face. Yes, I know, Moffiss already tricked us in this fake-suicide-point, but still. IF Moriarty isn’t be dead, they would have used the same “plot-twist” two times and it wouldn’t really be a surprise anymore. Of course – potential spoilers here – there are Setlock pictures featuring Andrew Scott. But, in my opinion, it is quite possible that these are flashbacks or simply scenes from Sherlock’s mind-palace. Yet if Moriarty is dead, who will be the main villain in Season 4?
Molly Hooper is the main villain
The first time we meet the cute, innocent special registrar in the morgue at St. Bartholomew’s hospital in London, Sherlock directly treats her as a joke when she asks him if he wants to have coffee and he simply replies “Yes please, black, two sugars, I will be upstairs” (you can also take the lipstick story as an example “your mouth is too small now”). Yes, we know that he isn’t quite familiar with being human, but still, we know that this wasn’t their first meeting so we can start out from that Sherlock has treated her like this for quite a long time.
Another “not-really-a-secret-but-still-a-secret” is, that Molly Hooper loves Sherlock. She is nearly obsessed with him. So here we come to the point where it gets a little awkward. She starts dating Jim Moriarty. The nerdy, clumsy guy from the IT, who turns out to be an absolute insane villain, Sherlock’s arch-enemy. As soon as Molly introduces him to Sherlock, when Sherlock points out that he is gay, he pretty much destroys the relationship. The relationship Molly needed to get away from him. So let’s skip to “The Reichenbach Fall” where Moriarty kills himself. When I first saw this episode, it made me think a lot about Molly. I asked myself the question if it could be possible that Moriarty was Molly’s puppet all the time?
But why would the cute Molly do this?
Revenge. Sherlock must have hurt her so deeply with his actions that she wants to do the same to him.
