Look away now if you have not watched Sunday’s shocking episode of the BBC’s hit detective show.
Set for an explosive finale, Sherlock has already hit fans with a major character death in episode one and a mind boggling character reveal in the second episode so, what is in store for the final episode of Season 4?
It seems that Moriarty may not have been the one behind those “Miss Me?” messages that have scattered throughout the series so far. In Sunday’s episode, it was revealed that the messages were left by the mysterious “Sherrinford” aka Sherlock and Mycroft’s “secret sister,” Eurus.
Watch the trailer here:
As you can see from the trailer and the title of the series four finale, a more permanent end to the show or even the death of another major character may be ahead.
The Final Problem is the name of the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle short story in which Holmes plunges from the top of the Reichenbach Falls with Moriarty – as seen in the series at the end of series two.
Also in the original book, Moriarty’s extensive gang is round up and captured – so is Eros involved with Moriarty?
We’ll have to wait and see!
Fans may have to wait longer than usual though for Season 5. A two year wait is likely – at least!
In an interview with the Radio Times, Steven Moffat said: “Right at this moment, we really don’t know about the future…There was a fairly long time we thought series four might not happen.”
He added: “Everybody’s schedule is difficult. Benedict and Martin aren’t just two of the finest actors of their generation, they’re stars, in demand everywhere. Sherlock can only ever be a passion project. So give us a moment and Mark and I will go back to [Arthur Conan] Doyle and see what we’ve missed. The game may still be on.
“Unless, of course, everybody dies at the end of series four.”
