    Yeah, I just watched The Reichenbach Fall. Amazing viewing. I'm just pissed we'll have to wait a year or more now.

    Thoughts? Was that the real Moriarty and did he really just blow his brains out?! Wow. I think it's interesting that there was no mention of finding Moriarty's body up on the terrace. The writers mention that they've already put out a clue that explains how Sherlock did it. I suppose it's the fact that the little girl seemed to recognise Sherlock's face, which means there's either a look-a-like out there (the real Moriarty?) or the kidnapper wore a mask with Sherlock's face on it (which was my initial thought when she screamed). Sherlock needed Molly's help, so that's probably to do with a substitution of bodies. Sherlock lands on a ledge and survives the fall in the canon, so IMO the solution here involves a floor in the building, close to the ground.
    [SPOILERS - kinda]

    I read an interview with Andrew Scott (actor who plays Moriarty) and, without actually stating it outright, certainly danced around being back for series 3.

    My guess is Molly is def involved, she could've fixed the autopsy and has a supply of cadavers readily available.

    I think Holmes jumped into the refuse lorry that was parked nearby (when he spoke to Watson on the phone he made a point of asking him to remain where he was, suggesting maybe that the ruse would've been tumbled if Watson had seen it from another angle & then John was bumped by the cyclist to prevent him getting to the scene immediately before the swap took place) & everyone on the scene was part of his homeless network.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Good to hear, it's such an awesome show. As you say Olyphant is just the king of cool, and the gents who play Boyd Crowder & Limehouse do an exemplary job as well imo.

    I don't think he jumped onto the lorry. It would have fooled Watson because of the angle, but it would not have fooled the sniper, who had a clear view from the terrace to the pavement (made obvious from when he shifted the focus of his view-finder off of Watson after Sherlock's body was carried away). The lorry might have served to merely obstruct the sniper's view of the pavement, but that would imply Sherlock having prior knowledge of his position.

    And your wish has been granted! TBH I think this is the first time I've felt no sympathy towards a contestant after they've been medically evacuated. Even the one redeeming action he could've made, to give the idol to Alicia/Jonas/Tarzan, he failed to make. In saying that I have a strong feeling that he'll return at some point on a second chance season, unfortunately.

    As far as the game goes, I'm beginning to like Kim. Shes getting a great edit, has an idol, a strong alliance with both the original and shuffled Salani tribe members, and looks to be a force in challenges. And know that the other idol has disappeared, her chances have only improved. Interesting to see how it plays out with the merge which really caught me by surprise.

    Re: The Reichenbach Fall

    [SPOILERS]

    My obsession with figuring out what happened has led me to what is either a brilliant piece of deduction or a continuity goof.

    There are two Moriarty's. No random speculation. There's a bit of observation that backs me up (and perhaps shows that the writers are sticking closer to the canon than we might think).

    Go on then, I'll bite. Tell us where you saw/deduced this from.

    You're itching to, I can tell.

    I'm not itching, I'm positively bursting

    [SPOILERS]

    Moriarty the cabbie (who'd driven Holmes home after the kidnapped girl was recovered) was clean-shaven.

    Later that night, when 'Rich Brook' walks into the journalist's home, he's sporting a goodish stubble. Holmes was subsequently speechless for pretty much the whole time, and Watson did all the talking. Holmes doesn't get fazed easily. IMO, he immediately deduced from the stubble that there were two Moriartys, and was figuring out the possibilities. 'Rich Brook' even palms his face in despair at one point, which was probably the writers drawing attention to the clue. I don't think it was a continuity goof.

    Good work.

    Given the writers' attention to detail and obsession with minutiae I'm inclined to agree. Such an obvious continuity faux pas would've been spotted, I'm sure.
