I’m not calling for a second chance,
I’m screaming at the top of my voice.
Give me reason, but don’t give me choice,
Because I’ll just make the same mistake again.

Guys... I've been reading the spoilers again.

Mycroft. Just... Oh my God, Mycroft.

(He's got an umbrella sword guys - it's officially canon.)

More spoilery stuff down here, if you don't want it.

Mycroft's gay and, of yes, Sherlock is confirmed to be a virgin but never aesexual, although we get our usual vibes of both aesexuality as well as sexuality.

Apparently through the whole episode Mycroft is just cracking, and it's quite clear that the writer's have been reading our fanfic because he's portrrayed as so crushingly lonely, under so much pressure, and we actually get a scene where we just get a steady progression from Mycroft just sitting in a chair with his jacket, then the jacket's gone and he has a drink in his hand, and then we see the drink -empty- beside him while his head is in his hands.

There's also a lot of very strong brotherly moments between Sherlock and Mycroft, and we actually see Mycroft not only smoking but sort of handing over control to John as Sherlock protector. I can not rage enough on how they've gone with Mycroft.

There's also plenty of subtext between Sherlock and John ("You make a good boyfriend John," or something similar is said) and John is incredibly witty and clever through the whole episode.

We also get a few shining moments with Lestrade that are both humorous and informative about not only his past but relationship status (I'm dearly hoping it involves Mycroft somehow, but I don't think we'll be getting that much fan service and no one will tell us).

Oh, also, Irene is a lesbian (it wasn't mentioned in the show but Gatiss told the audience afterwards). So, for those who were dearly hopeing for anything but Irene/Sherlock you've more than got your wish and we can bring in more fem-slash into the fandom because molly is also in the episode.


So... yup. That's probably the most spoilery thing I'll ever post.

For those wondering, Sherlock premiers on January 1st in the UK, May 6th over here. I'm moderately sure we'll be able to find video sources to watch it sooner, but if not then... yeah. We have to wait until May. Stupid PBS.

Relatively spoiler-free reviews can be found at the following: http://cumberbatchweb.tumblr.com/post/1 ... via-review

Edit: One more minor dialogue spoiler...
John: Are we meeting the queen then?
Mycroft: *enters, stage right*
Sherlock: Apparently so.


And then the person's brain shot circuited so I couldn't get more. T-T

It's hard to resist though, isn't it? XD Obviously you two are stronger people than me.

Can I share something with you? (Gatiss mentioned it in the interview after - from what I understand you don't really see it in the show.)

*whispers* Irene is a lesbian. :awesome:

OMG really? So(as someone who hasn't read the spoilers) can safely say she isn't going to be Sherlock's love interest, because the two never actually meet in the books.....
I can already see the fics now... X3

I honestly think it's the best bit of news this fandom will ever receive. Mostly because we have so many shippers.

If anyone in England posts spoilers without the spoiler tag before it comes out here, I will ... do something unpleasant XD Seriously though, don't even.

I think we're all just going to be sitting here, at this thread, on a self-imposed ban from fandom after New Year's day. Agree? Well, us Americans will be.
