  • Hey youtubers it’s charlie and now that weve all had a chance to see Sherlock season

  • 3 it’s time to start talking about season 4 predictions. So what I’m going to do in

  • this video is just list my top 10 with as much evidence as possible for each one.

  • Before we get started I just got some really good news and since I’m so happy I’m giving

  • away a sherlock season 3 dvd to 5 random subscribers in the comments. I’ll announce the winners

  • in my next sherlock Q&A video.

  • I will continue to do sherlock videos for the rest of the year, all of my sherlock,

  • doctor who, game of thrones and walking dead videos kind of rotate periodically just to

  • make it easier to focus on stuff when it’s most relevant. Be sure to subscribe to get

  • everything.

  • Carefull for spoilers if you haven’t seen season 3 yet. Well be talking about some

  • very specific plot points. Shall we begin. Top 10 predictions for season 4.

  • Number 10 - Watson Baby. Mary Morstan was super pregnant during the final moments of

  • his last vow. So even if season 4 picks up directly after that, she’s still going to

  • have the baby in one of those episodes. I think we can all imagine that at some point

  • the life of that baby will be threatened by the villain and sherlock’s last vow will

  • continue to be a big theme.

  • Raise your hand if you think that Sherlock really could be a girl’s name. Or suggest

  • your favorite watson baby girl names in the comments.

  • Number 9 - Sherlock running around with the watson baby will break the internet. Tumblr

  • specifically. Benedict Cumberbatch was the most reblogged person on tumblr last year.

  • So imagine what will happen when he starts clueing for looks with a baby.

  • Using baby’s in scenes is really hard from a production stand point. So don’t expect

  • there to be an actual baby on screen for a lot of the more intense action scenes. But

  • baker street babies is totally going to be a thing. I guess you could also consider this

  • a shoutout to the baker street babes. They have an awesome sherlock podcast.

  • Number 8 - Billy Wiggins will be back. He even called himself Sherlock’s protege.

  • When he started making deductions in molly’s lab I actually wondered if there was a connection

  • between drug addiction and savants. Or if he was just naturally gifted. Either way in

  • the canon the Billy and the Wiggins characters are both really important, so regardless of

  • which stories they adapt for each new episode hell be there.

  • In his last vow he kind of took on the collective role of the homeless network or baker street

  • irregulars depending on how you view them, so I’m also wondering if he’s going to

  • to start running sherlock’s homeless network too.

  • Number 7 - Even more mycroft. This season dealt a lot with Sherlock’s family, but

  • I don’t expect benedict cumberbatch’s parents to return. And if they do have cameos,

  • they will be more like empty hearse than his last vow. The Sherlock Mycroft scenes are

  • so popular in the fandom though and the mycroft character is so well developed that I think

  • hell continue to be heavily featured.

  • A big part of their relationship that was new in season 3 was their childhood. Learning

  • about redbeard as well as actually seeing young sherlock. Played by steven moffat’s

  • real life son.

  • The next logical step would be to feature flashbacks to teenage sherlock and mycroft.

  • In the canon mycroft is about 7 years older so it would be like teenage sherlock and mycroft

  • at university.

  • Quick side note. If you haven’t seen it yet, Young Sherlock holmes was an 80s movie

  • that depicted sherlock during his university years. The actor that played him Nicholas

  • Rowe is on Davincis demons now.

  • Number 6 - Mary will be a much bigger part of the action. In his last vow we found out

  • she was an elite assassin and a deadshot. So there’s no way season 4 isn’t going

  • to invoke those skills. Especially since she’s a mother now. At this point she’s kind of

  • like Uma Thurman in Kill Bill. Someone will probably try to steal baby watson and sherlock

  • and john will have to stop her from killing everyone responsible.

  • I can’t wait to see ninja mary fight scenes. Someone actually asked me if we’d ever get

  • to see a sherlock fight scene but we kind of already did during scandal. The next logical

  • step would be a mary fight scene. Weve really only seen her sharpshooter skills.

  • Number 5 - Sherlock will still be a murderer. I don’t think that the series will backtrack

  • on sherlock killing magnussen. It was a big part of his last vow and taking that away

  • from him would kind of undo the sincerity of that promise.

  • Mycroft’s comment about learning your lesson is a tip off that there won’t be any major

  • consequences to sherlock than weve already seen. I think the government was satisfied

  • with mycroft’s solution and the season 4 villain will negate any further concerns.

  • Number 4 - The stories. This is a bit of a problem, because theyve already done most

  • of Conan Doyle’s best known stories. Each season has featured on of his four novels.

  • And theyve already done a study in scarlet, hound of baskerville and sign of four. So

  • the next logical step is to do Valley of Fear.

  • It actually features the first chronological appearance of moriarty. It also features sussex

  • villiage. Remember that place Janine bought the cottage.

  • In the canon it takes place before rickenback fall, but if moriarty is back. This story

  • would make the most sense.

  • Other stories they could do are Lady Frances Carfax, Dying Detective and Red Headed League.

  • Number 3 - A return to proper form. Steven Moffat said that as sherlock gets more emotional

  • he becomes less brilliant. The final moments of his last vow imply that he’s returning

  • to form. even if the high functioning sociopath line is unreliable narration.

  • In my mind palace the best sherlock holmes stories are always like chess games. Very

  • calculated and precise. So I don’t think well see another episode like sign of three

  • with sherlock dancing his way to clues stoned and drunk.

  • Which kind of implies that the major arc will have to be something that requires him to

  • be in proper form.

  • 2 - The final solution. What better to snap sherlock back into form than a doomsday scenario

  • set in motion by the one true moriarty. Notice I said one true moriarty. In canon moriarty

  • is every bit as clever as sherlock. And if sherlock and mycroft were one step ahead of

  • moriarty during rikenback fall. Then wouldn’t it stand to reason that moriarty would have

  • had his own 13 different solutions.

  • Regardless of who the villain is, I think that post credit scene is the signal that

  • a doomsday scenario has been set in motion. Like a last will and testament.

  • and my number 1 prediction - moriarty really is dead and that clip we saw was being used

  • by another villain. Rule number 1 the doctor always lies. In the world of sherlock different

  • characters take on the role. and in this case the mad man in the box is moriarty inside

  • your television.

  • With so many other villains to explore it doesn’t make a lot of sense for Moffat and

  • Gatiss to retread old territory.Just to be clear, I definitely think Andrew Scott will

  • be a part of season 4. Just not in the way you hope.

  • I really think it’s just another villain just enacting Moriarty’s doomsday scenario.

  • Or enacting their own scenario using him as a front. A couple of people it could be including

  • Moriarty’s brother who’s also named james. the real colonel moran, henry peter from the

  • lady carfax story, Rene Heron, Fantomas and Von Bork.

  • If it is in fact moriarty, here’s one possible reason why he’s still alive. In the story

  • of the final solution we find out that moriarty’s brother is called james and the one true moriarty

  • is called professor moriarty. That would mean that it was the brother that killed himself

  • on the rooftop and played the richard brooke role.

  • In canon professor moriarty is always someone who only acts through agents. It’s a major

  • character trait that he never directly acts against people, especially sherlock. And in

  • rikenback and great game he is very much up in sherlock’s face.

  • Take that evidence as you will, but let me know what your biggest prediction is for season

  • 4.

  • A lot of people have been asking me about when it’s going to air and unless there

  • is a major delay in filming, it will be the same time next year. They already have the

  • story, the just need to schedule the actors.

  • A lot of you guys have requested a moriarty vid specifically. So I might do one next week

  • if you guys really want it. I’ll probably post my season 4 q&a video wednesday or thursday.

  • Be sure to subscribe to get it.

  • I’ll also be doing a new Doctor Who Series 8 Q&A this week. And details on the weekly

  • walking dead giveaway I’ll be doing when it comes back.

  • Right now click here for my breakdown of his last vow and click here for the q&a.

  • Thanks so much for watching, see you guys tonight. high fives!
