The Case of Molly’s Other Hand
After this scene, so many things happen that I could fill pages and pages with speculations and theories. But let’s try to keep it short and jump to the shot of Molly crying while on the phone.
Doesn’t something look strange here? The position and varying skin tone of her hands suggest that one of them belongs to someone else. They look really feminine, so there aren’t too many options. Could they belong to Mary? It would be possible because we just don’t know enough about her. And who is Molly talking to on the phone? Is it Sherlock? Is he lying to her? Telling her a secret? Or is it someone else telling her some terrible news?
The Final Problem?
The other day we finally learn the title of the Series Four finale: ‘The Final Problem.’ So what is the final problem? Strap in, everyone, here’s where it gets dark…
By putting together a few shots in the trailer, we can work out that Sherlock, John and Mycroft will be locked in a chrome bunker-type room with some unknown individual and a gun. This seems like a pretty dramatic situation so we’re going to say it is taken from the finale. In one shot, Sherlock is holding the gun and appears to break down. So… could the finale be about Sherlock having to decide between killing John or Mycroft?
To take our mind off that horrific scenario for a moment, let’s admire the cinematography. I totally love the shot in which Sherlock is standing in the front with John and Mycroft in the back. For me it looks like the typical “angel and devil on your shoulder”. Or in this case, it’s more heart versus mind. And it looks like heart has won out…
