The Reichenbach Fall – The final episode of SHERLOCK’s 2nd Series

John: I am here because …
What happened John?
Sherlock, my friend…
You need to get it out
Sherlock, my best friend, Sherlock Holmes is dead.

NO I DIDN’T JUST GIVE YOU SPOILER!!! That was the opening of The Reichenbach Fall. (use your mouse to read the above quote)

Clearly, if you have read Sherlock Holmes, no matter how ages ago it was…you would remember what happened in this story. The Reichenbach Fall was the climax of Sherlock-Moriarty rivalry.

Well…let’s just begin with a bit of the story….Don’t worry, no spoiler will be given in the first page…however, if you have watched this final episode, please take a look at PAGE 2. I want you to share your opinion on it. That part is perfect for a discussion 😉

Sherlock was suddenly becoming more famous than ever after he solved the case of The Reichenbach Fall. His exposure in newspaper had made him more than just a private detective. It was the perfect time for Moriarty to do his plan which is, obviously, to destroy Sherlock. He broke through some important and high security places at once and let himself caught by the police.

Sherlock was asked to be the expert witness…but as we can all guess, he did his ‘thing’.

Judge: Do you think you can survive for few second without showing off?!

Well….it’s Sherlock!! How could he NOT showing off!!

Moriarty walked free, the details needed here because that would be an annoying spoiler, and had a nice chat with Sherlock. Not long after that, Sherlock was asked to help Lestrade to solve a kidnapping case. The case then led to a series of events that could bring the end of Sherlock Holmes.


I really like this dialogue between John and Sherlock. It showed how they were meant for each other

John: I don’t want the world believing that you’re …
Sherlock: That I am what?
John: … a fraud!

Sherlock: You’re worry they are right about me!
Moriarty is playing with your mind too!!! CAN’T YOU SEE WHAT’S GOING ON!!!
John: No!! I know you for real.

Sherlock: 100%?
Nobody can fake being such an annoying DICK all the time.

Isn’t John so sweet? 😉

Obviously…at least in my opinion…the last episode of this second series is the best of all. Less humorous and very serious. Moriarty got to make Sherlock dance again. Although I have to say it again that I DON’T LIKE how Moriarty is portrayed in this series. Andrew Scott made Moriarty looks like such an annoying DRAMA QUEEN. I always thought that Moriarty is a calm villain. I know it’s a bit unusual that I didn’t mind when they changed the personality of Irene Adler, this series’ version of Adler is much more interesting than the book…but for Moriarty, I prefer the book version better.

It’s nice to see that Sherlock does have FRIENDS not only Friend like he claimed it to be in The Hounds of Baskerville.

Strange as it might sound…I re-watched the whole series in a marathon of 2 episodes per day in order to write a better review…but in the end, I feel that this review is not as good as I wanted it to be….due to the trying to avoid spoiler. One thing for sure…the series is getting better and better and Benedict and martin relationship look much stronger in every episode. But I can guarantee you that you want more Sherlock the moment you finished this last episode…what an ending!!!

…Or you can try reading this better review I found in internet> Esoteric Fish

I can’t wait for another year to see the next series!!! I want to see whether my conclusion is right or not. And of course I want to watch this amazing couple again.

Hint: You need to see the movie twice, at least the last 30 minutes!!

Now….FOR THOSE WHO HAVE SEEN ITplease check page 2. I have written my conclusion of The Fall’s ending. I want you to share your opinion too.

 I might be on the side of the angels, but don’t think for one second that I am one of them
