    How did Sherlock know ahead of time that he'd have to fake his own death? I will not accept "He's smart" as an answer. Being smart doesn't mean you can predict the future.

    Here is what i thinkhappened. In the scene were Sherlock jumps off the roof u can see there is a truck rite beside the sidewalk were the body is found. as Watson is walking toward the body you can see the truck starting to leave. You can also see that the truck had padding in it. IbelieveSherlock jumped into it and had a fake double. We know he is able to create doubles because he did it for the women back in episode 1 season 2.


    Now on to Moriarty. He is dead. At thebringingof the episode, Moriarty tellsSherlockthe story of the musician and his son, later Sherlock explains that Moriarty does everything for a reason. I think the reason Moriarty toldSherlockthis story was because he was hinting at the fact that a person who he considers his father would be the one to complete the game should he fail. This leads to the I.O.U. I think this means that Moriarty ows his father, Who's first name starts with a U,Sherlock'sfall.Whenthey were talking on the roofSherlockwas able to get out of jumping thus meaning M failed and so he killed himself. Another thing i caught on was when Sherlock wastalkingabout the perfect lies have hints of truth. I think Moriarty is rely the actor Rick like he said he was and he was hired by the real M to try and trick Sherlock. Him being an actor also explains all the theatrical things he does during his crimes for the real M. We also never see anyone elseaddressMoriarty in person. Sherlock is the only one who has seen the Rick acting as the real M.




    i absolutely love this theory. any1 else agree? the realJim Moriarty could of just hired a somewhat mental actor to play as him. like i feel thisJim Moriarty was so out of character in contrast to the Prof.James Moriarty from the movie that it fits. this wayMoriarty is still alive and still the big bad and he is a rly good big bad

    These graphics are a pretty well-presented and interesting take on how Sherlock managed his fall.

    I didn't read all the comments here but my brain had a little idea when Sp3kkie mentioned that he thought the biker that knocked over Watson on the street had something to do with it. That is exactly what I thougt and now I'm thinking: Could it have something to do with the drug from 'Hound of Baskerville'?? That Watson saw what he feared to see: Sherlock dead on the pavement??


    I have no idea as to how he would have pulled it off but hey, it's just that kind of show..

    This is pretty solid.
