Reichenbach Theories – BBC Sherlock

22 May

Nothing gets me more worked up and depressed than “The Reichenbach Fall.” Out of everything that happened in the first two series of Sherlock, the last episode was the most awe inspiring and kept everyone watching guessing.

The most amazing part was when Sherlock apparently committed suicide by jumping of the roof of Barts.

See Sherlock jump!

See John look!

See Sherlock fall.

Sad Sherlock…

These images still upset me. I can’t watch this episode of Sherlock without sobbing hysterically on the floor when we see John’s face.

There are hundreds of Reichenbach theories on the Interwebs for how Sherlock survived the fall. Some of my favorites are The Doctor saving Sherlock by opening the TARDIS like the time River Song jumped off the Empire State Building into the swimming pool.

If you don’t watch Doctor Who, that made no sense.

Other funny theories:

My theory is that Sherlock knew how to fall and not be seriously injured. He didn’t hit his head, neck, or Spink directly on the pavement. The impact was on his arm and side, so he wouldn’t be too badly hurt. The bystanders on the street with John were his homeless network that was mentioned in a previous episode. They had fake blood to make him look dead; they also kept John from being able to see Sherlock too carefully. Sherlock used the ball he was playing with earlier in the episode to block the pulse in his arm. The H.N. got Sherlock away while a dead body (supplied by Molly) was wheeled away on a stretcher. Molly then pulled a few strings in the morgue to get Sherly a death certificate and Mycroft tied up any loose ends and made him be able to come back safely when the time was right.

And that’s my theory! It’s a bit of a bunch I’ve seen on tumblr and other places. I like it. We can expect series 3 in January so we’ll know who’s right then!

That’s enough for today, eh?
