8 (who?)

So I just watched Sherlock

Sun May 20, 2012, 7:34 PM
  • Mood: Neutral
  • Listening to: Thinking of Flight - Edmund - Arthur Darvill
  • Reading: Merther fanfiction
  • Watching: BBCAmerica
  • Playing: WITH YOUR MIND!!!
  • Eating: Nothing
  • Drinking: Tea - nice hot cuppa tea...
So I caught the last episode of series two again on WHYY

Of course I cried

I was watching for clues, what could it be that we've missed? What is Moffat trying to say to us, where is it?

And then I think I heard it… I haven't had time to formulate a complete theory but I believe that it has something to do with what Sherlock said to John while they were talking on their mobile's while Sherlock was atop St Barts.

"It's what people do." Now, we've heard this phrase recounted numerous times through the series… I can clearly remember it being said when Sherlock is showing off in series two, episode two, when talking to Russell Tovey's character, about being 'show offs'. Is this time about saying goodbye, or is it about leaving notes?

I'm not sure where I'm going with this yet, but when I get the chance to sit down and think it all through I'm sure I'll get back to all of you…

What do you think?

Someone watched the last 20 minutes of Reichenbach Fall at 1/8 speed. They found a lot of things that people probably missed; a lot of theories can be formulated from what she found: [link]

Oh, no, I mean, I saw it in January when it came out... it just aired over here in the US so I watched it again, that's all.

And I'll have to check that out!
I was so proud of myself!! :)

It's been an active line throughout all of the series... I'm just not sure where to go with it next... I think I might tweet Moffat saying something like "It's okay, I understand, because that's what people do" What do you think?
