There’s been a lot of discussion about whether or not Moriarty’s gun on the rooftop was fake and/or specially equipped somehow, but I think there’s one big clue people have missed that might confirm it.
He doesn’t give the gun to Sherlock to commit suicide with.
OK, so Moriarty wanted Sherlock…
As much as I want the gun to be fake, here’s a thought why your theory might not be working. So, imagine if Moriarty had handed a gun to Sherlock. None of his snipers would have seen it. Jumping is much more effective, it can be seen by an audience. If Sherlock had shot himself on that roof top, Moriarty had to call the snipers off himself but that isn’t possible as he said that there is nothing he can say to call them off. Unless he’d positioned a sniper to watch the roof top scene. I don’t know, your theory is very good. :D
It happens to everybody!! Every woman I know who watched Sherlock has had the same revelation at one point thinking “Damn, Benedict Cumberbatch is hot” and just be surprised by it.
Before I started I got warned that it would happen and I didn’t believe it. But it did! And it happend to a friend of mine who just marathoned through all series.
I think it’s incredible and says a lot about the importance of charisma. Can you support my oberservation? Does that happen to men, too?
(why can’t I enable answers here?)
You know the scene in Dates when Christian (Andrew Scott) is sits on the stairs with Jenny after his wife kicked him out. And he says “just get some shoes on”, I can’t help thinking, “Jones? Is that you?” I don’t know why. They way he says that remindes me of Jones from My Life in Film. Am I crazy?
