In the Season 4 premiere, Holmes awaits Moriarty's posthumous move; and becomes preoccupied with why someone is destroying images of the late prime minister Margaret Thatcher.

So did anyone see this?  I know this thread is a little late.

And did anyone guess the culprit before Sherlock did?

Strange episode. Not sure I liked it. But still looking forward to the rest of the series.

I'm running behind on all shows from the last few weeks, so I only just caught this, and haven't watched the next one yet.  Wow, what a gut-punch.  For Sherlock to be *that* emphatic throughout the episode that he would keep Mary safe and have it end like that...  :(

I think this is my favorite episode since the first season.  A lot of Season 2 and 3 were too stylized in both the production stuff and the character work for my tastes.  This time, the cool scene transitions and cool integration of texts/video-calls/etc. felt fresh again, like they were in that first episode.  And the evolution of Sherlock into someone who really cares and acts on that caring (even while keeping some of his former quirks) is *great*.  There were *such* a lot of great moments.  Sherlock explaining to "Watson" the illogic of constantly throwing her rattle, Sherlock's sense of humor in explaining to Mary how he found her in her random travels.  I think my favorite was the scene with Sherlock showing Mycroft a picture of the baby and Mycroft being all "And I care about this why?"

I did think it seemed to take much too long for Sherlock to start looking into where the busts came from.  It seemed clear that the explanation for the thief smashing the first one in the light was that he was looking for something inside it... and when the second one happened, it should've been easy to make the jump to looking into where they came from (which would have gotten them to the other busts sooner).  The coincidence of him happening across that crime while investigating some other random occurrence and then and having it link back to Mary was quite a stretch of suspension of disbelief, also.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the Sherlock/John relationship heals... and Moriarty's scheme is still out there waiting to pounce, so that should be fun.  :)
