Re: mysterious package in 221C

Why didn't they have the bomb squad pick up this package, other than that it's more cinematic this way?

I remember when some of my colleagues accidentally left some miscellaneous computer gear in the lobby of their hotel in London - let's just say the cops didn't just waltz in and start poking the stuff to see if it went boom...

Poor John, getting forgotten.

DON'T WORRY JOHN, I LOVE YOU.

I think Sherlock genuinely thought he was doing something quite nice here... he actually looks sincerely puzzled when he asks if it was kind.

EYE SEX FOR EVERYONE.

And a Sherlockian version of foreplay.

Re: shoes

[personal profile] disassembly_rsn 2011-12-26 09:54 pm (UTC)(link)
So the shoes were basically a serial killer's trophy.

I wonder how many trophies Moriarty keeps, and what kind.

Why would he have kept the shoes in the first place, all those years ago, if they weren't simply a trophy? Has he had an eye on Sherlock *all* that time? That's the only other answer that I can think of...

Re: shoes

[personal profile] tardis_stowaway 2011-12-26 09:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I think the shoes must have been a trophy. Carl Powers could well have been Moriarty's first kill, judging by how young he must have been.

John was hoping to be the groom.

evidence lying around 221B's kitchen...

[personal profile] disassembly_rsn 2011-12-26 09:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Somehow I doubt the cops would let Sherlock just keep that phone on him at home in a situation like this, let alone those shoes.

They have to keep better track of evidence than *that*...

I'm very fond of this episode, but inclined to nitpick after the nth viewing...

Realism in police procedures is not exactly this series's forte. Oh well.
