"The Sign Of Three" Introduced Drunk Sherlock And Took A Lot Of People By Surprise

Sherlock Holmes: wedding planner. Warning: contains spoilers! posted on

1. So Sherlock surprised everybody by sort of turning into a sitcom for most of the episode.

BBC

3. The central point here is that we got to see Drunk Sherlock.

Brilliant episode of #Sherlock!! Absolutely loved it. Drunk!Sherlock had me practically crying omg.

4. (Also Drunk John.)

BBC

6. There was knee touching.

BBC

JOHNLOCK HUG SHERLOCK AND JOHN DRUNK JOHN ASKING SHERLOCK IF HE’S PRETTY MYCROFT WORKING OUT THIS EPISODE WAS EVERYTHING I EVER WANTED

10. Drunk Sherlock’s arms go a bit Eleventh Doctor, it turns out.

BBC

Or possibly Captain Jack Sparrow.

15. Yes. Drunk Sherlock’s drunk deductions were undeniably the best.

BBC

“Egg… sitty thing?”

16. Although some people thought they spotted a similarity to another TV character.

Wait, this is just a modern reboot of Mitchell & Webb’s Sir Digby Chicken Caesar, right? #sherlock

18. The Evidence:

19. Some people were unconvinced.

Next week I think I'll film me and a friend messing around drunk and release it as a prestige drama #Sherlock

20. And a lot of people couldn’t help notice that for a long time the focus of the episode was mostly wedding logistics.

#Sherlock season episode trajectory: First episode: OMG asdfghlk Second episode: Just Ok Third episode: OMG...asdfghjkl...WTF...O_o

24. But still… Drunk Sherlock.

25. Almost certainly not just you.

BBC

26. And it still found the time to make people get… a bit emotional.

27. (We take a short break here to spend some time considering the bit where Sherlock ruffled his hair.)

BBC

28. Meanwhile, others had important issues on their minds.

29. Confirmed.

BBC

30. The sportswear of the Holmes clan was another topic.

Nobody needed to see Mycroft in Lycra. Surely he just frowns a bit and the fat cells explode like the terrorist ones.

31. Sexy, sexy Lycra-Mycroft. Lycroft?

BBC

32. We were introduced to a new character, Tiny Watson.

34. And we got an insight into Sherlock’s approach to computer multitasking.

BBC

36. It turns out that Irene Adler keeps turning up in Sherlock’s Mind Palace at inconvenient moments.

BBC

37. (Oh, and we learned that Sherlock’s Mind Palace is the London Film Museum’s debating chamber.)

38. Not entirely sure what’s going on in this picture from the show’s makeup designer but WHO CARES?

39. By the end, the episode had won some of the doubters round.

Despite my earlier objections, that ep of #sherlock had an excellent dėnouement but my WORD it took its time getting there.

Okay, new rules: y𠆝on’t get to brand a TV drama plotless until you’ve actually finished watching it and stuff. #Sherlock

42. And it’s definitely still fanfic with high production values.

Ok yes; Sherlock pissed to Rihanna. It is fanfiction. In fact I think I might have WRITTEN this fanfiction.

I think it's really kind of the BBC to basically film loads of the cracky fanfiction that goes on in my brain & call it Sherlock S3.

44. But lots of people are concerned that everything’s been much too lighthearted and that therefore the Hammer of Tears is about to come crashing down.

If you’re convinced the next episode will be soul destroyingly depressing because the last two have been so fun clap your hands. #Sherlock

45. Uh-oh.

BBC

46. But we’ll leave the final word to a friend of Mr. Cumberbatch, who has IMPORTANT INFORMATION to impart.

And final word before nighttime coma - drunk Sherlock terrifyingly, hysterically similar to a drunk Cumberbatch :)

47. NOTED.
