Clarification about the last theory and updating
This post is linked to a previous one containing spoilers from setlock. The following one doesn’t contain any reference to setlock but since there are many spoiler-sensitive people I’ll put it under a read more anyway [[MORE]] Clarification My theory supposes that the body is placed as soon as Sherlock lands in the truck, while John is still beyond the low building and cannot see the...
The mystery of the blood pack - SPOILERS FROM THE...
The post contains spoilers and a picture from the set [[MORE]]After seeing this picture I tried to find the definitive truth about the blood pack. The guy in the new photo is not the same shown in the Reichenbach episode, he has different shoes and trousers Does it mean that this is not actually a packet? As dudeufugly correctly said in the episode 3 of Spoilercast, that could actually be the...
A little resume about the fake body issue
This post contains spoilers from the set and part of ‘how he did it’ [[MORE]] The famous picture of the guy with a pocket of blood hidden under his jacket, near Sherlock’s body immedately after the fall, is apparently confirmed now since we know from videos that the body has been actually replaced in this order: Sherlock falls (in a safe place) A fake body dressed up like...

Info about the future spoilers policy
Hi guys! The DAY is finally - slowly - approaching. We will soon know how Sherlock actually survived the fall. Meanwhile, as you’ve seen, some pictures are going around suggesting how he did it, but they are not totally revelatory. In fact, now that we have some new hints it is possibile to develop other new theories! This blog will reblog/publish theories based on recent setlock’s...

The Phone Call
GertrudeTheAwesome Several people have pointed out that it was strange for Sherlock to call Watson rather than to text. Personally, I’m willing to accept that, half just because it would’ve been so much less dramatic in texts. Plus, Sherlock needed to be able to stress the importance of John standing in a certain place. What bothers me is most everything that was said in the conversation. So...
My Life Is...: My Reichenbach Theory →
frankelljd: I haven’t posted my theory yet, and everyone else has, so I thought I’d share it with you guys. Ok. Sherlock goes to stand on the edge of the building and asks Moriarty for a moment of privacy. After Moriarty walks off you can hear a click and muffled sound (I think it’s a “hello” - Sherlock called Molly, most likely). There are two trash bags on one of the benches when Sherlock...
Welcome to my Den of Madness!: Reichenbach Theory →
iridescentdragoness: Guys, my dad’s a Sherlockian now. He’s got a Reichenbach theory and everything! I told him about the Pulse Stop and Phone Recording theories so here it is, in its glorious entirety: Sherlock recorded the entire conversation with Moriarty, then left the phone on the rooftop to be used as evidence, kept safe, etc by Molly. (You see him toss it behind him before he jumps...
thisurlisunavailable: I re-watched the episode, and there are a couple of things I picked up that seemed slightly suspicious in the episode, that i’ve not really seen discussed in a theory before. Read More
Can someone clever figure out if this is relevant...
devinleighbee: Even though this is probably a major coincidence I’m just going to post this because maybe someone clever could figure out if it’s relevant, but anyway… I googled London Police codes because I wanted to do a code photoset for Lestrade (like this) and found this: The Metropolitan Police Act 1829 defined the original Metropolitan Police District as an area of about seven miles...
My Reichenbach Theory: The Kidnapping
aptronym: Hello! This is my attempt at forming a Reichenbach theory based on other theories I’ve read, notes I’ve taken down from watching the episode repeatedly and my own research. Let me know what you think! Please note: I agree with most of finalproblem’s theories and I might mention some of her theories just to get my point across Read More

So, tigerlily536, I posted a couple of theories about the jail cells, the second one is particularly interesting. Remember that you can all contribute in finding new theories submitting yours or a link to another you like
The case and why it makes sense
bloodredorion: [HERE’S THE CASE: ( If you don’t want to read my explanation, you don’t have to I guess… But it helps understand ” the fall”. You can read around the things I bolded to just get the key points.)] Pay attention to the right -left thing that Moriarty continues to do, and Sherlock seems to catch onto. (Press ” Read more”) Read More
mother-fuckingkhaleesi asked: so, i'm loving all these theories, and what always boggles me, and that i never see talked about, is when Sherlock is put in a cell after the trial and it looks like it might be with Moriarty, even though there is a dark line between them. are there any good theories on that?
alexbellemerquaid: okay what about this. This is kind of a combination of everyone’s theories I’ve read, plus a little of my own, and basically just summing everything up. that thing that moffat said, the thing that sherlock does that’s “out of character”, that supposedly everyone’s missed. a few people have said this before me, but hear me out. He called John. He always says he prefers...
Anonymous asked: Regarding Moffat's revelation of the words rat, wedding, bow, people have been speculating the word "bow" to be in reference to "bowing out", and possibly Sherlock's last case. Which could mean the end of the series altogether... What are your thoughts on this?
Anonymous asked: Two questions - when Moriarty says he has something of Sherlock's that he wants back, what was he referring to? When Sherlock is on the rooftop and starts to cry, do you think he's actually sad or do you think it was to go along with his plan of fooling the snipers?
Anonymous asked: What did Moriarty really mean when he said IOU? And do you think Moriarty really killed himself?
REICHENBACH FALL THEORY
catstiel-angel-of-the-lord: This is a theory explaining how Sherlock survived his fall from St. Bart’s, developed by my sister and me. It’s just a theory, so feel free to disagree, but this is our best idea. Fair warning: it’s pretty long and involved. Read More
Sherlock Theory: Snow White
jacknoshima: So, I’ve been doing a bit of digging. I’ve read loads of theories before about Reichenbach, some were absolutely dreadful, some were pretty awesome, but beyond a few vague guess, I’ve never seen anyone properly explain the fall. They’ve explain Moriarty’s plans down to insane lengths, delving deep into Hansel and Gretal and making justifiable leaps in logic to explain what Moriarty...
Anonymous asked: Was Moriarty blinking a code to Sherlock while they shook hands?
My Reichenbach Theory - Spoilers
nerdyravenclawqueen: Note that I have read a lot of other reichenbach theories. I do not claim that all of these are my ideas. This post mostly is for myself to try to clear my head. But any input would be highly appreciated. Also I realise that this is very chaotic. I hope that I will write a nicer version of this soon. I will then try to remember all the other interesting reichenbach posts I...

Another crack in the Reichenbach theory
iwantallthatjazz: Ok…so…I don’t know if I should get even more insane with this or what. But here it goes, fandom, brace yourselves (just in case you haven’t seen this yet). You all remember the sniper who was supposedly aiming for John, right? And most of us (if not all) assumed it was Moran, right? Well, I have Sherlock: The Casebook on my hands right now to tell you otherwise (considering...
Another Reichenbach Theory: part four
notmydate: See Part One here: http://notmydate.tumblr.com/post/34296816516/another-reichenbach-theory, in which I argue that Mycroft knew what he was doing when he gave Moriarty information about Sherlock, that Mycroft provided that information with Sherlock’s knowledge and consent, and that Mycroft and Sherlock want John to think they are estranged. See Part Two here:...
When Moriarty looks at Sherlock shortly before they shake hands and he kills himself he notices something odd. Sherlock`s Pupillary reflexes are absent! This means he must`ve taken the Grayanotoxin and is therefore capable of faking his death. Because of this Moriarty uses his last option and commits suicide.
I’m not joking guys, but finally we have the solution for that’s fucking glance that was driving me mad. Well done, Melissa!! You get all the claps
How Sherlock faked his death...
melissmine: According to two very caffeine-addled and sleep deprived college students with nothing better to do. And yes, I realize this is just a TV show but I’m trying to avoid filling out scholarship applications and this seemed the best way to accomplish that. Cheers. Read More
Another Reichenbach Theory: part two
notmydate: See Part One here: http://notmydate.tumblr.com/post/34296816516/another-reichenbach-theory, in which I argue that Mycroft knew what he was doing when he gave Moriarty information about Sherlock, that Mycroft provided that information with Sherlock’s knowledge and consent, and that Mycroft and Sherlock want John to think they are estranged.

Another Reichenbach Theory
notmydate: Introduction In The Reichenbach Fall John Watson and the viewing audience watched Sherlock Holmes jump from the roof of St. Bart’s to lie dead on the pavement. Except Sherlock did not die. We were all of us deceived. So how did he survive? Well, it was the last deception in a string of deceptions. Because despite his protestations, Mycroft knew exactly what he was doing when he...
But what about Moriarty?
randomnessosityism: Ever since I finally pieced together my full Reichenbach theory, something’s been bothering me about it. See, most theories hinge on the fact that Sherlock mainly needs to fool John. Therefore, any tricks Sherlock employs must be invisible from John’s perspective. This is relatively easy, considering there’s a building in the way. But here’s the thing: Sherlock couldn’t...
Reichenbach fall theory.
counttheshaddows: So there’s all these little theories going around, and all of them are pretty damn intricate. Well I was watching reichenbach for the second time, and, well, I think I have part of the mystery solved. so obviously molly and possibly mycroft helped, right? sherlock wasn’t doing all of this on his own. anyways, when moriarty turns away to give sherlock some privacy, the camera...
My Reichenbach Theory:
youcancallmedrbanner: There are posts going around with the idea that Sherlock is a part of John’s imagination, a result of PTSD from the war. I would like to propose the alternative: John is actually part of Sherlock’s imagination, a result of his paranoid schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder that has affected people throughout history. About 1...
My weird brain spewed out a new theory today - I hope you like it! XD http://eva-christine.tumblr.com/post/32560017981/reichenbach-explanation-richard-brook-was-real
final-answer: Oh, there has been so much speculation concerning the IOU. Elaborate theories have been formed based upon it. But there is one very basic question that no-one has really thought about yet. Why does Jim Moriarty owe Sherlock Holmes anything? Now, maybe Jim wants to repay Sherlock for getting him into jail (“I owe you a fall”, the fall being Jim being caught and put into...
Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking
My Reichenbach Theory
iamtheisabella: It’s not complicated or anything, which worries me a bit, because knowing Moffat (and Sherlock, for that matter), it would be. But it’s the only thing I can think of. So we’ll begin on the rooftop of St. Bart’s Hospital. Whilst talking with Moriarty, Sherlock was acting a bit strange; a bit too… ordinary. He kept asking questions. The man with all the answers, and up there, he...
thenorwoodbuilder: A sudden thought just occurred to me: what if we’ve had already been shown the beginning of the first episode of Series 3? Ok, I know this sounds crazy, and probably is, but just for the sake of speculation, let me explain. This idea occurred to me after re-watching A Scandal in Belgravia, out of two considerations: 1) Series 2 started exactly where Series 1 ended, without any...
wisethefool: Ok. So, there is an incredibly elaborate and brilliant theory that explains everything perfectly up to how he fakes his death. (By the way, if you want look at that, it’s in my liked posts.) My theory has to do with how he faked his death. Sherlock used his connections through Mycroft to get his hands on the drug used in Hound of Baskerville. He tinkers with the H.O.U.N.D. formula...
