Leading up to a video message for John, Lestrade and Anderson discuss Sherlock — and all the clues, clever editing, and funny sort of coincidences point towards the game being very much BACK ON.
Two things that may make you cry and whimper a little at your leisure:
- Anderson was so stricken with grief and guilt over Sherlock’s alleged suicide that he started obsessing about proving that he wasn’t dead and lost his job with the Yard.
- What John wants from Sherlock as a birthday gift is his best friend not being dead.
Many happy returns, John. Be careful what you wish for.
