All Holmes is Good Holmes.

Series 3, What Could It Be?

RAT

Pastiche, The Giant Rat of Sumatra. We know that The Empty House will be the first episode, but they always conflate numerous stories into one. Curly is silently hoping for Rattigan. Could also relate to Boscombe.

WEDDING

Fairly obviously this’ll be The Sign of Four with Mary Morstan (WHO IS AWESOME, CALM YOUR TITS). Could have elements of Charles Augustus Milverton where Holmes gets engaged to a maid to get info and then.. leaves… a wedding was also threatened in Charles Augustus Milverton (John & Mary’s wedding threatened (not by a cockblocking Sherlock?)), and a bride went AWOL in The Noble Bachelor. The Illustrious Client also has wedding trouble in it. AND Solitary Cyclist had wedding stuff. SO MANY WEDDINGS!

BOW

Immediately think of His Last Bow, which is the last Holmes story and he goes to chill out with some bees. However, they’ve all said they want to keep doing them, so I refuse to believe this is it.

Mattias pointed out this may be referencing the Bow Street Runners, which were the first police force in London.

Also, not sure of the pronunciation, but what if it’s a part of a tree or the front of a boat? SO MANY QUESTIONS!

The inflection was apparently like taking a bow. #sobs

BUT! His Last Bow is the title of a COLLECTION of stories and this includes The Dying Detective… if we wanted to kill Sherlock… again…

However the amazing Kristen McHugh just tweeted this to us… AND I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW MUCH I WANT THIS!

@kristenmchugh22  @BakerStBabes What if Moran/Morstan are the same, & there’s a Rat at the Wedding in more ways than one? #sherlock

And more thoughts from you fine folk:

thenorwoodbuilder said: “Rat” was also partial for “(Balla)rat” in BOSC. And they could use part of the plot from his last bow, but not make it the end of the show…

bakerstreetbarricades: They never take the ACD stories literally - so what if “Bow” simply means that they will be doing kind of a spy story?
