Mary and her bovine countenance and sourness is graceless and hateful. John and Mary coo over their doll aka baby. Where are the malefactors? Sherlock won’t leave his phone alone. This ep was full of sneering undertones and ugly wallpaper. Sherlock’s manic obsessive energy is not perfectly delicious. TPTB ruin John’s character. This was un-fascinatingly misguided. This show never has a good mystery and this ep is no exception. I viewed this ep negatively.
John has fury etched on his face and Sherlock is deeply repugnant. Does Sherlock have a tan? John is misery laden and there is no twisted darkness. Sherlock is cold, detached and terribly behaved. This does not mine dramatic tension and is not inherently moving. This ep was all contrivance. Sherlock does not know who Margaret Thatcher is apparently.
Nobody smelled the body and the subtext is non-existent as John is barely in this ep as Mary’s wrinkly face is centre stage. Mary ruins everything. Sherlock’s hair looks mental. This was not bizarre or baroque just boring as hell. It’s all about Mary. Who cares about Mary?!? Mary shot Sherlock, nobody seems to remember or care. She gets away with her crap. She looks old and haggard, she’s a liar and dumb and all generalised violence and thuggery. Mycroft sneers. Mary is just a devious minx on the make. This was not endlessly jolly.
This was lamentable and I felt absolute and inarguable loathing for the painfully obvious plot devices. Mary is guilty of all-round nastiness. She wears a bad wig. Who is minding the baby as John and Mary ignore it? John is sick of Mary’s crap but gets over it. This was singularly ill-judged. Mary is not cooperative, compliant or respectful. She’s an idiot and gets herself killed. With cold fury, John blames Sherlock. Why are people indulging John? This was all irrelevance. John acts discreditably and he is pettish and he suddenly decided to get cross. Sherlock is persona non grata. TPTB ruined John and the subtext for THIS? This ep had no considerable implications and had no particularly troublesome adversaries. John needs a more convincing condemnation. This was not raw, real or painful just doleful and unremarkable.

There is a dinner party. Philip and Gabriel play poor Don as the mark he is. Pastor Tim is ever suspicious. This is not even coldly effective. There are hideous ideologies that should be consigned to the ashes. The mail robot trundles by. Paige mumbles about stuff. Thugs get their asses kicked. There are caustic and impeccably defensive tones.
“I don’t want anything from you.”
“He couldn’t do anything to them anymore.”
“I put that in my report.”
“Please do not talk that loud.”
“We lived there first.”
“Is this forever?”
Allison bores. I felt no unalloyed passion for this. Kyle has implacable imperceptivity. What are the demons? Are they demons? What do they want? This show had promise but went awry like ‘Threshold’ and ‘Surface’. Kyle has not assimilated to local prevailing values and customs. He is not self starting and has no outward certainty. Anderson is totally demented. There was a mine accident in Rome a while ago.
Anderson is weighed down by his own compromises. There are no alleged benefits to anything Anderson has done. The vile teen Aaron is disingenuous. Sidney is unusually difficult. Amber knows what happened and that Kyle left her with Allison. People are intensely sorrowful. This was not heartfelt and not a significant achievement. Donnie is a deranged fiend. Megan is wretched. There are most unpleasant consequences. This was infantile and senseless. I felt dissatisfaction for this ill considered ep. This had no thrilling intensity. Poor Mark is in trouble. This was inefficient.
“This is never gonna end.”
