Sherlock Season 3--Avoid all news!

For those of you who are watching via American television, Sherlock Season 3 has aired in Britain, and there is a fairly major development that will probably be much talked about. So between now and Episode 3, you should probably avoid all press coverage or message board discussions of the show unless you are absolutely sure it will contain no spoilers.

All joking aside I will now watch it knowing something major is going to happen instead of just watching it.

Well, when the alien fleet descended on London, I thought "Man, how are they going to keep THIS a secret?!?"...

But then the zombie horde invaded, and I knew I had to warn you guys so you wouldn't find out about the aliens and zombies.



Oh crap. Pretend I didn't say that.

All joking aside, I think it's not something you'll see coming, even if you're looking for something. But it's something that will be very easy to spoil, and I have a feeling the British press is already having a field day with it.

Absolutely. I would even go so far as to say one should avoid the BBC Store right now as well. Not a huge spoiler as far as the show is concerned, but there is a certain line of dialogue that is now on a t-shirt.

Anyone who watched can probably guess which line , but do NOT discuss it here.

I assume Doctor Who saves the day ? I wish I hadn't seen this thread but chances are I will see a spoiler elsewhere before I can watch it - which will be Tuesday.

You'll be glad you saw the thread if it saved you from seeing the actual spoiler.

It's all in the perspective.

For a show that only does three new episodes every two years, suggesting that a batch of three has a big development contained within should not be a huge shock.

I have been tempted to acquire the episodes via alternate means just to avoid this problem. But I have been too lazy to actually do it.

Okay, you know what? I can't hold it in any longer. We just finished watching S302 (which aired in England Sunday evening). If you don't want to know the secret, stop reading - but here it is:

IT'S PEOPLE. SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!

Nope, you need to rewatch. Soylent Green was actually dead the whole time.

No, no, no! There is no Soylent Green. It's just a part of the narrator's subconscious.

I thought Great Caesar was a ghost?

And now you're saying he's an Asian woman?

I'm getting really confused...

You see, that's what I'm talking about. We have a nice, on topic discussion going and you take it Elsewhere.
