Oh come on. Considering the subject matter I thought it was kinda funny. I know that you aren't plotting any nefarious schemes against him.

i never read Sherlock Holmes beyond maybe a short story a looooong time ago (and can't really remember if i actually read one or just was told about it).

and up until this thread, i had no idea Moriarty was a in the books/stories.

She may get mentioned on other occasions but it won't be the dominant storyline.
She'll be able to run her evil empire from prison. It's been done before.
And then escape during Sweeps.

Something not mentioned

The ruse at the end was based on "The Dying Detective" where Holmes faked a rare illness to lure a murderer to his rooms and then gloat revealing that he did indeed murder his nephew with the illness, and sent Holmes a box with a spring loaded needle intended to kill him as well.

I do love the gloating villain scenario.

Can someone explain the thing about the moles on her back?

2 years ago, Holmes saw a constellation in the moles. Present day - is one of the moles missing? Why would she do that?

Holmes's theory was that she had one of them removed for medical reasons, which would be unlikely to happen if she were being held prisoner.

Which happens...I had a mole which turned into some kind of growth that needed to be removed.

Yes, she had one of her moles removed, because it was pre-cancerous.

Ah - ok. Thanks. I thought that Holmes thought she was playing some kind of game with him, either by adding false moles 2 years ago or removing them since.

Your explanation makes much more sense.

It wasn't his explanation, Holmes said that. Weren't you watching the show?

Yes, I just didn't understand his reaction. Maybe I had the sound too low.

What? I can't hear you!

I miss stuff like this all the time and that is with me rewinding at least a couple of times per show.

Reading this thread makes me want to track down a copy of Nicholas Meyer's The Seven-Per-Cent Solution.

Spoiler:
The novel begins in 1891, when Holmes first informs Watson of his belief that Professor James Moriarty is a "Napoleon of Crime". The novel presents this view as nothing more than the fevered imagining of Holmes' cocaine-sodden mind; it further states that Moriarty was the childhood mathematics tutor of Sherlock and his brother Mycroft.
