Plot holes so big, even Mark Gatiss's ego would fit. This final episode is a grotesque mess of all the show's worst qualities. It is so enamored of its own perceived "cleverness," but there is actually nothing clever about the writing at all anymore. Sherlock may as well have a magic wand. A completely unsatisfying mess.
I know this wasn't the usual Sherlock episode but I think it doens't make it bad. On the contrary. This was brilliant. It got me anxious from the beginning until the very end and fixed to the screen, which doesn't happen a lot.
This episode is so freaking extra. Very illogical. I love Sherlock to death but this one is simply not as amazing as others. Very overreacting to stuff. Eurus bvtch is very annoying, overrated. Honestly, they should have brought Moriarty back for good.
I enjoy the 'Saw but questioning morality instead of arguing for it' shtick, but the episode wasn't particularly amazing otherwise. The whole Eurus plotline was a bit out there for me. And can't they just let dead people be dead, and not keep coming back for appearances?
1 - Even taking into account the outrageously low standards set by the majority of the episodes from this show's second half, I am still flabbergasted by just how terrible this finale is. At least it's probably the final insult.
All that build-up in the last season with Moriarty video.. The theory of Moriarty and Sherlock was faking the fall and making out was even more sensible than this. Such a disappointment. Sherlock has lost the role in his own story.
