All right, all right, I definitely need to rewatch The Lying Detective WITH SUBTITLES because WHAT THE HELL, I missed about half of Sherlock's drug-fueled rambling. At the moment, though, I can't really say I liked the episode. I mean, I liked some parts (mainly the Mycroft-centric parts, what a surprise), but the episode as a whole... Not so much. It felt like Moffat was trying too hard, wanting to shock and impress at all costs.

Also, was it really necessary to bring up Irene Adler again? Does Sherlock really need an explicit love interest to be a more "complete character"?

And I laughed so much at Lady Smallwood making a pass at Mycroft. I mean, really? I hope there's a reason other than THE LULZ.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to The Final Problem, it looks like there's going to be A LOT of Mycroft in it.

I need to rewatch it too. Culverton Smith's character confused me; it became obvious that this version of him was based on Jimmy Savile, but I still don't know who he was. TV presenter? Radio host? Author? They just showed him as an old philanthropist with no context. Maybe I missed something (my stream kept freezing) but I spent most of the episode annoyed at how much a very simple story full of good ideas was made so confusing for no good reason.

Since both Gatiss and Moffat are writing the last episode together, I wonder if we'll be able to tell who wrote what part. I just hope Moffat doesn't get the parts with Mycroft D:

I hope, we won't hate what they do. Didn't they say, tomorrow's episode would bring every loose end to a conclusion?
