* Once again, Sian Brooke's performance as [[spoiler: Eurus Holmes. According to the wardens of Sherrinford, she had a hypnotic quality to her that made her dangerous to anyone she came in contact that. Thanks to the set-up of the episode, she looks like she's talking directly to the audience for most of it. CreepyAwesome at its best.]]

*** How was all this putting together? [[spoiler: Eurus and Moriarty talking alone together, unsupervised. Five minutes alone. That's all it took to put this plan together.]]

** Even better, when asked [[spoiler:how she escaped Sherrinford, the answer was simple: she took it over from the inside. BY TALKING TO PEOPLE.]]

* John Hamish Watson breaking down the door to [[spoiler: Sherlock's hospital room just in time to rescue him from Culverton Smith, who was attempting to asphyxiate him.]] After an episode of seeing John struggle with his own demons, it's amazing to see him be the hero that Sherlock and Mary predicted he would be.
** And he got there by flogging a bright red Aston Martin through the night streets of London. Damn.

* In the last scene, Lestrade is the first of all of them to get himself together enough to shoot at the hound. He fires three times, but all shots miss. Then John fires; at least one of the two shots he fires hits the hound square, despite it being lit only by torchlight and everyone there being absolutely terrified (which, along with the fact that what they were seeing was technically a hallucination, has got to affect one's judgement somewhat). He later shoots the hound again, twice, and at least one if not both of those shots connect. Without using a torch this time, and at some distance, he hit a moving target in the dark. While he was drugged. BadAss.

* When you think about it, John's reactions while locked in the lab are pretty awesome. He's not just terrified, he's been ''drugged to be terrified.'' He's got absolutely no control over the levels of fear he's experiencing. Instead of becoming paralysed and totally irrational with fear, instead of going into a meltdown, he does everything to get himself out as rationally and calmly as possible. He's able to fully explain to Sherlock where exactly he is, that he wants out ''now,'' and then is able to go on to explain what he's apparently hearing and seeing. He's able to judge that the cage is probably the safest place to be in the entire lab. This is extra awesome when you remember that the original purpose of the drug was specifically as [[FridgeHorror a weapon]] that would render enemy soldiers ''completely unable to fight or defend themselves''; and the awesomeness is squared, cubed, and hypercubed when you recall '''John's existing post-traumatic issues'''. John Watson may be the baddest BadAss who has ever lived. Not only that, he got the H.O.U.N.D. drug from a small airtight room where it'd been leaking for a good long time. Sherlock and Henry, by comparison, got a much lower concentration since the stuff [[spoiler: in the fog]] was allowed to disperse. No wonder he was so calm when the hound finally showed up. It was a lower dose than what he'd first been introduced to.

* Sherlock and Mary take a motorcycle to get to John when they find out he's in danger. Sherlock doesn't stick to the roads. Mary doesn't complain once, knowing that saving John is more important than good driving etiquette and trusting that Sherlock knows what he's doing.

Added DiffLines:

* It turns savage very quickly, but John expertly disarming and restraining Sherlock when he loses control in the morgue. This is a guy who is both bigger and younger than him, and [[spoiler:probably genuinely having a moment of drug-fuelled psychosis. Sherlock made himself seriously ill as a long game in getting John to rescue him, but that doesn't mean he was ''faking'' any of it. He'd been high for weeks, and he wasn't faking his horror when he realised the woman who apparently came to see him at his flat wasn't Faith Smith. From there up until the end of the episode, he honestly thinks he hallucinated the whole thing.]]

* Mrs. Hudson is a top-to-bottom badass in this episode. [[spoiler: She sees Sherlock is high out of his mind and waving a gun around in his flat. She pretends to make him a cup of tea, then disarms and cuffs him effortlessly when she has the chance. She then stuffs him in the boot of her car and tears ass across London to find John and get him to help, with a police car and helicopter in pursuit.]] She also orders Mycroft and his spooks out of the room [[spoiler: when John sits down to watch Mary's good-bye video. She even gets in a solid TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Mycroft, calling him a "reptile" and telling him he doesn't know his brother thought-process as well as he thinks he does.]]
** There's also her correct identification (deduction!) of where to find whatever is on Sherlock's mind.
