Ok so to bide my time before the next series of Sherlock comes out (and to keep me marginally sane), I’ve been reading all of the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories, usually at work when I’m doing nothing else.
I was minding my own business until THIS happened:
- Ok, the word WEDDING showed up. Pretty typical. Nothing to be super psyched about.
- Wait…and now the word RAT is on the same page. Just a quick descriptor, again, nothing too exciting. But still, a neat coincidence…
- …you’ve got to be kidding me. BOW. All three clue words for series 3 on one page? I quit. I’m done. I can’t do this anymore.
(page scan from the Barnes and Noble: The Complete Sherlock Holmes Volume 2. The story in question is called The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton)
CHARLES MILVERTON. The journalist who made a name by ruining people’s reputations. That makes so much sense in the context of Season 2.
If this is true, then basically, the three words mean nothing except for this story.
MOFFATISS YOU TROLLS.
HOLY SHIT THIS IS BRILLIANT
