    Wedding is probably Watson’s. Bow… His Last Bow?

    I’m so not thrilled to see the “marriage” there. XD I know, I know… Mary is canon. *crossed out* /But so is her death…/
    Oh gosh, I know it’ll be awesome either way but still, I really don’t wanna have John married. >.< Word of God, please!

    Bow: As in, the verb or the noun?

    Some Sherlock news, finally :D

    Rat: No idea how this fits in with The Adventure of the Empty House and Sherlocks return XD

    Wedding: Surely Watsons wedding? Perhaps that could be a revelation in episode 1, and the events follow into episode 2 (Not a two parter, but in episode 1, John sort of saying “I’m getting married”, then in episode 2, we get the wedding)

    Bow: No idea O_o I’m not familiar with the original Sherlock stories, so all I can do is theorize on what bow could be. A bow out? A bow in front of majesty? Bow tie?

    Time to do some research O.o

    But lets wait till Doctor Who is finished first XD

    Cause I was bored, I researched

    Bow is quite clear. Its either

    A) A series of stories packed into one episode (Which I doubt)
    B) His Last Bow, the story was written in third person, and it sounds like its the last story of Sherlock Holmes (Unless I read wrong, which is likely, because I’m tired -___-), so it will be interesting in seeing how they execute O_o

    Wedding is unclear. It might be The Sign of Four, where Watson proposes, but that would be unlikely cause this is the WEDDING. Not much of a clue on this :/

    Rat, doesn’t fit in with The Adventure of the Empty House at all I don’t think O_o Unless, of course, he used a rat in faking his death? XD

        Its probably John, thats the character Moffats always wanted to get married

    I’ve never actually watched Sherlock before, but it has always been on my ‘To Do’ list. I’ve now found a place that allows me to download all six episodes, in HD no less, so I’ll endeavour to watch them, just in time for series three.

    It has a ‘9.2’ on IMDB, it’s almost unanimously praised by its fans and critically acclaimed as well – so I really don’t know why it’s taken me as long as it has, to finally sit down and watch it.

    As for the three words, I’ve no idea what they mean. I’m not an expert on Sherlock Holmes, in the slightest, so I wouldn’t even be able to hazard a guess.

      I remember when Sherlock was on my to do list

      Then I got the series 1-2 boxset for my birthday

      Then I spent the next month on Sherlock theorizing websites

      Beware the Sherlock faked death trap………


      • GoodYear92
        August 26, 2012 @ 4:58 am

        Yes, well, I now have the boxset on order and it should be here by Tuesday.

        I had a downloaded version, but just ten minutes in, after I had become hooked by the episode, it became drastically out of sync. I was not happy.

        “Beware the Sherlock faked death trap…..”

        I shall, but I’ll also look forward to it as well. Series two finale is when it occurs, yes?

      Just to warn you, I got the series 1-2 boxset and discovered whilst watching that the episodes are actually 90 minutes. So bare that in mind, it kind of messed up my schedule. They are very good, but a little too long.

        August 26, 2012 @ 7:16 pm

        Oh, I’m already aware of that. Thank you for informing me, though.

        It actually suits me perfectly fine; I’m a bit of a TV fanatic, so it’s not out of the norm for me to spend a number of hours watching something like Sherlock.

    Rat – Hmmm not sure… wasn’t there a story with a giant rat of some sort? Not sure… I’m not the most familiar with the classic books.
    Wedding – Obviously Johns wedding. I read somewhere it could be Molly… and seeing as there was no Molly in the original stories and Mary was John’s wife in the books….
    Bow – His Last. Maybe it’s saying it’s the last series… wait no.. its Moffat… Probably not it’s most likely a red-herring!

    The rat could mean the Giant Rat of Sumatra, this was one of those anecdotal cases Holmes says to Watson in passing during the case of the Sussex Vampire

    “Matilda Briggs was not the name of a young woman, Watson, … It was a ship which is associated with the giant rat of Sumatra, a story for which the world is not yet prepared.”

    the bow i concur with the theory its in reference to the Last Bow

    as to a wedding Watson did get married in holmes lore but there were cases that hinged on who’s outcome could effect a wedding, for example the adventure of the Noble Bachelor and the blackmail case involving Charles Augustus Milverton and my gem of a favorite the case of identity that has possibly two of the best quotes made by Holmes “‘There is danger for him who taketh the tiger cub, and danger also for
    whoso snatches a delusion from a woman.’ There is as much sense in Hafiz
    as in Horace, and as much knowledge of the world.”

    *plops on detective hat* Right! Let the thinking/searching Wikipedia and my Holmes books begin!
    So “Bow” is most likely His Last Bow, which if I’m not mistaken is the last story of Sherlock Holmes, so this will most likely be the finale of Series 3.
    Unlike Bow, which was rather easy, this is much more difficult! Quite unsure about this annoyingly, the only thing that springs to mind is The Sign of the Four in which Watson proposes to Mary Matson, but of course that is not the same thing.So, pretty much clueless on Wedding.
    Unfortuntley, I really don’t have an idea what it could mean considering The Adventures of the Empty House is ep 1 of Series 3(Well I think it is!).

    Hmmm very interesting. It probably won’t be Sherlock getting married, because he’s Sherlock and if Bow is reffering to ‘His Last Bow’, which is Holmes’ last story than that’ll probably be the end and I hope it won’t as it is a fantastic series!

    I am certain that it is John getting married. John has often got hitched in the adaptations as well as in the originals.

    ‘Rat’ could be alluding to ‘The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire’ from The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes. Holmes makes reference to a case about a ‘giant rat’

    ‘Wedding’ could be referring to ‘The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor’, where a bride disappears on her wedding day, from ‘The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’, and;

    ‘Bow’ could mean ‘The Last Bow’ the final of seven stories from a collective of the same name, or maybe one of the other six.

    The Giant Rat of Sumatra?? The Sign of the Four?? His Last Bow??

    “Bow” probably means that Sherlock needs a new bow for his violin. A rat stole his other one at a wedding.
