That may be the problem then. I'm not sure if you have access to bold, italic, underline, etc. on that.
In the comment box you have a row of tiny squares with pictures in. They are bold, italic, underline, strike, code, image, url and spoiler. The last button is the one you want. Highlight the part of your post, you want to be a spoiler and press that button.
Quote my post if you like, to see the difference.
Here is your theory anyway:
A. Sherlock tells Molly he's going to fake his death. He asks her to provide a dead body from the morgue similar to Sherlock's traits (i.e Blood type, height, weight, eye color, etc.) to pose as his double for the autopsy and the eventual take in at the morgue. He also asks her to replicate a chemical compound similar to the one found in "The Hounds of Baskerville", analyzed by Watson himself before hand.
B. Sherlock tells Mycroft he's going to fake his death. He asks him to put pressure on the police force to quickly close the case after his death, thereby avoiding skeptics or any lurkers that might want to reopen or re-investigate Sherlock. He also uses his powers to back up Kitty Riley's article and press, so the public could forget the case faster. After receiving Moriarty's text that he will be at the top of the hospital, Sherlock texts Mycroft to be prepared to get to the roof to take away/kill Moriarty after the confrontation.
C. Sherlock tells the street grafitti artist (as seen in The Blind Banker) that he's going to fake his death. Knowing full well that he needs Watson to witness his "suicide", he asks him to knock over Watson at a precise time and place.
D. He also calls in two of his associates (Again, might be provided by Mycroft) to place a garbage truck in front of the place he's going to jump.
E. Finally, he arranges all of this right at the hospital and texts Moriarty. He also uses one of the callers at the hospital (arranged by Molly, perhaps) to fake a call for Mrs. Hudson's shooting to ward away Watson.
The Fall -
As usual Sherlock jumps from the building, but with a hidden twist - he's hooked on to a harness with a really thin cable (typically used for stunts and hidden from Watson's point of view) that stops his fall 1-1.5 feet from the ground. After stopping, Sherlock easily detaches the harness and lands safely spread eagle on the ground. (Keep in mind he is still behind the garbage truck and Watson has not seen where he landed yet.)
The two men hidden behind the garbage truck quickly hide Sherlock's body under the truck, while at the same time bringing out the fake/dead body from Molly that has, through make up and prosthetics, resemble and somewhat look like a dead and bloody Sherlock. The dummy is rolled to a place near the real's Sherlock fall. A crowd set up by either Mycroft or Sherlock immediately comes in and surronds the body, allowing the truck to leave with the real Sherlock hiding under it.
At the same time, that Watson is running towards the scene, the artist slams into him, and as he falls down, throws a little bit of the chemicals/gas based off of the one used in The Hounds of Baskerville (but to a milder effect). Along with the shock experienced from the fall, this disorientate and Watson's vision and mind - this is how they managed to fake the dummy under his eyes and why some of the features that can't be faked are not realized by John.
Finally, moments after Sherlock jumps, Mycroft's men storm the roof and take away Moriarty's body. He and Rich Brooks disappear, and his body is buried in place of Sherlock's.
I got that too. It will definitely be interesting. I think what will happened is
If you have an iPad or iPhone, most of the Classic Sherlock books are actually free to download from the itunes book store, you can't really go wrong at that price! :>
You can't go wrong with the Sherlock short stories and novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. True masterpieces of writing. Reading them in the closest order as possible is advisable.
Just watched the last episode. Been a long time since I had so much water in my eyes. The DVD cover was right: TV has never been better.
The amazing chemistry that both Benedict and Martin have with each other is quite palpable.
I was rewatching the clips of Reichenbach Fall and I noticed John was wearing a hearing aid the whole time...
And when he got knocked down after Sherlock's fall, it's gone!
Is THIS what Moffat was talking about?
How is that conclusive though, or concerning Sherlock's fall? I'm curious to hear if you have a new theory.
On the conclusive part -
Compare with before:
And I really don't know how this pertains to a theory, but it certainly helps evidence that Watson's hearing and sight could be impaired after Sherlock's fall. I'll cook something up later
Does this mean the three stories are The Giant Rat Of Sumatra, The Noble Bachelor and His Last Bow? If so, does this mean Series 3 is the last?!
Sadly, Bow must be... His last...
I´m sure Bow is there to tease us into the wrong direction. Remember the cliffhanger at the end of the first series. They want to play with the audience. Probably it´s gonna be something like His fast Bow. Or, I bow to noone ;-).
