Did anyone else notice that LaSalle cribbed DiNozzo's "why do they always run" line?
Cristina YanK? seriously? you got her name wrong.. it's Yang
Wasn't anyone else bothered with the tiny island? Its a tiny piece of mud in a small lake, but when crane and Abbey crossed the walkway it all of a sudden housed multiple houses, a well, etc.Also what happend to the colony according to this episode? Didn't quite follow. They got the plague, the spirit led them there, and then... they died anyway? Cause on the one hand it said they were protected and the water healed them, but then at the end it seems they were all dead all along. Pretty confused.
I've been thinking about that nemesis thing, too. I remember him saying at the end of the first season how invigorating it was going to be to have one. And then I keep hearing him and Kitty and Joan mention this season that he's bored. So I've been wondering for a few weeks now whether the big arc of this season has something to do with Sherlock's detective existence turning into dull routine for him, and the consequences of that, which would probably be a relapse or a near-relapse, anyway. ..... Don't know how I feel about this as a big arc, but I keep being struck by the repeated mentions of his boredom (which we've been repeatedly told from the very first episode was his biggest enemy), and I keep feeling as if they must lead somewhere. I'm also wondering where the heck his promise to make things right with Mycroft has gone. And I don't believe for a minute that *nothing* happened during his stint at MI6. But they certainly seem to have dropped that completely, for the time being, anyway. Although I'd expect it to return when they start doing flashbacks to when he met Kitty in London. I can't believe that a living breathing Sherlock wouldn't have his guilt over that whole episode, as well as his solemn promise, gnawing away at him like gangbusters, subconsciously at least. I have to say that I doubt that Sherlock's utterings are of much help to other addicts. He's way too singular a person for that, seems to me, and he also doesn't really muse about his most important issues, in my opinion. Boredom with the life of a detective and "being disturbed because I notice absolutely everything" really don't seem to me to be the deciding factors that drive most people to chemicals. And in fact they're not even what did it to Sherlock, even though they're what tempt him to experiment. As far as I remember, none of his musings has even touched on the real problem that drove him to use drugs heavily -- guilt over being the reason (he thought) that the only living person he loved (I assume his mother is dead) was brutally murdered.(I suppose, though, that we may be going on the idea here that if you "*are* an 'addict'" then one tiny slip will totally do you in, so his boredom and oversensitivity are a big threat .... They aren't the root of his problem, though....) ... Guilt did creep into this episode, near the end where he's beating himself up over his self-absorption perhaps making him a less miraculous detective than he might have been .... So I guess he recognized that his abilities can be shrunk by more things than drugs .... Guilt is as big a theme for Sherlock throughout the series as boredom is, despite his trying to pretend that he doesn't feel guilty about anything he does (unless he does it while on drugs ..). That said, I enjoyed the episode. But I'm looking for more of a thread and more of a threat this season, too. ( Could "Sherlock's Search for Meaning?" be the thread? Naa.)

I think it was a brilliant end. I thought the death was very well done and I thought he was death yet hoped he wasn't. I'm just surprised he didn't bring Mozzie with him. Neal had mentioned at the beginning of the season that he hadn't been in Paris for a long time so I figured it would end with him being in Paris. Well done to the entire cast and crew.
Well, SOMEBODY has to watch over Peter!
Felicity and Donna are the scene stealers for sure.
Yay! August is back! I love August! He's right up there with Graham. Maybe he is the author. Ha! I don't care. Oh! Can we put him with Regina? Anything is better than Robin Hood. Who cares? It's just... August is back!
the show has changed a great deal.. annie a bad ass.. from the young girl in the start.. well done..she has become a women.. sometimes over the top.it still makes us wish to view it weekly..good job good luck
You have got to be kidding me! Worst series finale I've ever seen! I agree: What was the point of the whole show? Although I saw it coming a mile away. They really weren't subtle about how they wanted to end the show.
we will miss the entire cast .. loved them all.. mozzie a hoot.mrs suit loyal.. enjoyed the t loyality..a fine show..family entertainment thank you..
