7. YOWZA!

John insists that he take Sherlock and the gang to see Molly for a check up.

8. Fear

Back at Baker Street, Sherlock’s brother Mycroft warns the gang against any mention of Charles Augustus Magnussen, and alludes to the detective’s past drug problems.

Sherlock loses the head, pins Mycroft against the door, and kicks him out.

9. More confusion

What IS the story with this Magnussen guy? Why is everyone so afraid of him?

10. WTF?

Sherlock has a girlfriend? Irish Janine from the wedding is Sherlock’s girlfriend? She’s been sleeping in Sherlock’s bed and taking baths with Sherlock and is kissing him in front of John?

WHAT?

janine

John’s face summed it all up:

wtf

11. More disgust

Magnussen turns up at Sherlock’s house and pisses in his fireplaces.

fireplace Is he... yes, he is. He's pissing in the fireplace

So far we know:

  • He’s a master of blackmail
  • He licks faces
  • He pisses in fireplaces

Charming.

12. And yet more confusion

Magnussen name drops Redbeard again. Who is this Redbeard? And what does he mean to Sherlock?

red

13. OH NO HE DIDN’T!

Sherlock announces he’s going to propose to Janine in order to gain access to Magnussen’s office. She’s Magnussen’s PA you see. Handy.

So he was only pretending to like her to gain access to Magnussen. That little pr….

yeah

14. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON I CAN’T EVEN!

The boys find Janine with a blow to the head, and while John stays with her, Sherlock stumbles upon the most WTF moment of all time.

Mary. Holding a gun to Magnussen’s head. John’s wife Mary.

liar

15. Oh no. Oh no oh no oh no oh no…

Mary shoots Sherlock.

16. So many feels

Sherlock starts to slip away, despite Molly urging him to fight from within his mind palace.

Redbeard makes an appearance – it turns out it was a dog, the first thing Sherlock ever loved.

Moriarty pops up too, willing Sherlock to give up and die.

He flatlines.

flat

Pssst Sherlock cast members have confirmed that there were tears on set when this scene was being filmed, so you’re not alone:

17. C’MON SHERLOCK

Moriarty makes the mistake of mentioning Watson being in danger, which gives Sherlock the will to pull through.

watcson

Hands up whose arse was a little bit off their seat at this stage?

lives

18. SHIIIIIIIITE

Mary learns that Sherlock is alive, and that her name was the first he uttered when he woke up.

Squeaky bum time!

fucj

19. Poor Janine

Janine comes to visit Sherlock, reveals she was only in it for the money from the tabloids.

papers

We didn’t buy it though, did you? She definitely fancied him rotten

20. Ohhhhh yeaaaaah!

Sherlock escapes the hospital and draws Mary to him. The truth about her past finally becomes oh so clear… her orphan status, her ability to code break, her fantastic memory.

joey

21. Poor, poor John

Finally, John and Mary come face to face. John’s life is crumbling around him. The woman he loves is a fake, a client. His best friend is a drug addict.

22. Awwwwww

Flash forward to Christmas time. The whole gang are at Sherlock’s parents’ house; Mycroft, Sherlock, Mary and John.

Mary and John have (understandably) failed to reconcile, and she’s still shittin’ bricks over the information Magnussen has on her. She produces a USB stick will everything about her past  on it and gives it to John… and he THROWS IT IN THE FIRE BECAUSE HE LOVES HER!

God bless us, everyone.

23. Double awwwww…

… when you realise that Sherlock and Mycroft’s parents are played by Benedict Cumberbatch’s real life parents.

24. Triple awwwwww…

… when Mycroft tells Sherlock that:

Your loss would break my heart.

Hold us.

25. Careful lads. CAREFUL!

Sherlock drugs everyone except John, and the pair head of the Magnussen’s lair, to put an end to his carry on for once and for all.

They demand to see the blackmailer’s vaults of information, where he keeps all of the details he uses to get what he wants.

26. Ah here

Magnussen explains that by “owning” Mary Watson he owns John, and therefore owns Sherlock and therefore Mycroft, his ultimate goal.

He then reveals that the “vaults” the lads came to see don’t exist, and that he owns all those millions of pieces of information in his mind.

The game is up.

27. Pure rage

Magnussen continues his campaign of uber trolling by repeatedly flicking John’s face.

And John has to let him, because of what he knows about Mary.

28. Oh Sherlock, what have you done?

The police and Mycroft arrive, and Sherlock does the unthinkable.

He shoots Magnussen in the head. He had no choice.

29. So many feels

Mycroft arranges for Sherlock to go to Eastern Europe for some MI6 work, an assignment he almost certainly won’t survive.

We’re not going to lie, it was hard to watch them say goodbye. Very hard.

30. WT ACTUAL F?

Just when you think Sherlock is going to fly off into the ether and leave us wondering if there will ever be a season 4, this guy happens.

He happens on tellies and screens all over the country.

Moriarty’s back.

miss

31. Aaaaand breathe

You’re so tense. You’ve been tense for ninety minutes, you can finally relax.

You’re also exceptionally sad that season 3 has already been cruelly ripped from you, just when you were getting used to it.

Still though, at least you can rel… AAAAAAAAAARGRRRHHHHHH
