And a lot of expectations about what the new episode would bring.

As anticipated, pretty much NOBODY was emotionally prepared.

Much of the fan flailing was due to some VERY unexpected moments, like Sherlock kissing Molly.

Not to mention Mycroft and Sherlock playing Operation.

Parts of the episode seem to have been written especially for the show’s hardcore fans.
