How The Finale Of "Sherlock" Series 3 Broke Twitter Emotionally

MISS ME? (Warning: This is entirely full of spoilers.) posted on

1. Sunday night saw the finale of Sherlock Season 3, “His Last Vow.”

2. Needless to say, Twitter was not emotionally prepared.

4. Everyone knew this episode was going to be, well, intense.

The Sherlock theme tune and credits is probably going to be the happiest moment in this episode.

7. In “His Last Vow” we are finally introduced to the big Series 3 baddie, Charles Augustus Magnussen.

8. Who quite reminded Twitter of a certain someone.

9. A certain someone wearing Google Glass, to be precise.

Excellent Sherlock already. Baddie is Rupert Murdoch wearing Google Glass. Impossible to be more evil.

So if #sherlock teaches us one thing it's that Rupert Murdoch should never get hold of Google Glass

Ah so the big bad this season on #Sherlock is a Murdoch parody with secret google glass

12. And after meeting Drunk Sherlock in the last episode, in “His Final Vow,” we get to meet High Sherlock.

13. Who has a new nickname.

14. Which John is not impressed by.

15. Neither is Molly.

BBC

16. And Twitter quite fancies the (disheveled) High Sherlock.

19. Yet the attraction swiftly turned into rage and confusion at Sherlock’s relationship with Mary’s bridesmaid, Janine.

22. But some (correctly) had their suspicions about their relationship.

AS SOON AS SHERLOCK HAD A GIRLFRIEND, WE ALL SAT THERE IN DISBELIEF, AND SAID SIMULTANEOUSLY THAT SOMETHING WASNT RIGHT

"Do what in front of everyone?" Oh, Sherlock, you cad. But a million #Sherlock fans cheer up.

25. But then THIS happened.

29. But some people were all like, “Yeah, totes saw that coming.”

33. And we’re once again given a fascinating look inside Sherlock’s Mind Palace, where we see an old friend.

34. And the whole process made people a bit…emotional.

IM ACTUALLY SITTING HERE SOBBING IM NOT JOKING YOUNG SHERLOCK AND MOLLY AND MYCRODFT AND SHERLOCK DYING WHAT THE HELL

IS THIS SERIOUSLY GOIMG THROUGH HIS HEAD AFTER GETTING SHOT BC I WOULD PROBABLY JUST CRY OMG SHERLOCK DONT DIE.

36. Like, ALL CAPS EMOTIONAL.

37. Which raised a very important question.

39. And self-doubt.

My mind palace contains nothing other than a recipe for an excellent clementine martini #sherlock

40. Inside the Mind Palace we also get to meet Steven Moffat’s son Louis, who plays a young Sherlock.

42. And throughout the whole WTF MARY ordeal, we got to learn quite a lot about Martha Louise Hudson.

Can we all appreciate that Mrs Hudson's pressure point is marijuana hahaha

43. Such as the fact that her pressure point is marijuana, and she used to be an exotic dancer.

44. But mostly everyone was stuck in a vortex of emotions and confusion.

SHERLOCK IS MYCROFT'S PRESSURE POINT JOHN IS SHERLOCKS PRESSURE POINT MARY IS JOHN'S PRESSURE POINT

45. But then, it appeared everything might be OK.

46. Mycroft and Sherlock turned into teenagers again.

47. And Mycroft was being NICE!

Mycroft showing he has feelings. Sherlock's reaction. THIS IS PRICELESS

"Your lost would break my heart." Mycroft, don't say things like this! #Sherlock

49. BUT OF COURSE, everyone was soon back to being confused/shocked/WTF.

HE JUST DRUGGED HIS LOVED ONES AND WE ALL THOUGHT HE HAD CHANGED OH SHERLOCK

52. And people weren’t entirely impressed with Magnussen.

53. Or his vaults.

Raise your hand if you think #Sherlock can store the entirety of Magnussen's Vaults in the Mind Palace. #CAMknows

55. And then there was the face flicking.

56. BUT THEN Sherlock said this.

57. And did this.

did he just shOOT HIM FUCK FUCK FUCK SHERLOCK JUST KILLED SOMEONE IN FULL VIEW OF LIKE 500 POLICE MEN

62. And just when everyone thought they were 100% dead from all of the shooting, THIS HAPPENED.

63. And Twitter was beyond itself.

How I feel right now. SO MUCH going on. 'Did you miss me?' Ah mind explosion. Can't wait two years!! #sherlock

66. And we realized that death means precisely NOTHING in Sherlock.

IDEA: next series of Sherlock, let's let people actually stay dead for a change.

69. And once again, Sherlock fans have been left with a massive, confusing cliff-hanger that’s broken them emotionally.

70. There are a lot of questions.

THEY MADE US WAIT TWO YEARS TO SEE HOW SHERLOCK SURVIVED AND NOW WE WILL HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER TWO TO SEE HOW JIM MORIATY SURVIVeD

71. And some plot holes.

Points for dialogue. Plot holes as big as a mind palace #Sherlock Mind you, if Moriarty's return heralds a proper story then yes, #missedyou

73. But, in perhaps the biggest twist of all, it would appear that for the time being, Moffat is forgiven.

I THINK I ACTUALLY ENJOYED A MOFFAT SCRIPT (OH MY GOD THAT DIALOGUE) (OH MY GOD)

They unnecessarily broke my heart for a while. But it's okay, I forgive Moffat.

@BBCOne #SherlockQA AFTER THIS EP I HAVE TO SAY THAT I FORGIVE YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU DID WITH THE DOCTOR, MOFFAT
