* How Sherlock wins in "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utwenXbh9hA Scandal in Belgravia]]". [[spoiler: Irene has just handed over her list of demands to Mycroft, has delivered a HannibalLecture that completely humiliates Sherlock and is about to leave when Sherlock interrupts.]]

--> [[spoiler: '''Irene''': Sentiment? What are you talking about?]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Sherlock''': You.]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Irene''': Oh dear god. Look at the poor man. You donít actually think I was interested in you? Why? Because youíre the great Sherlock Holmes, the clever detective in the funny hat?]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Sherlock''': No... ''because I took your pulse.'' Elevated. Your pupils dilated. I imagine John Watson thinks loveís a mystery to me, but the chemistry is incredibly simple and very destructive. When we first met, you told me that a disguise is always a self portrait, how true of you, the combination to your safe Ė your measurements. (Holds up her phone) But this, this is far more intimate. This is your heart, and you should never let it rule your head. (He starts entering digits) You could have chosen any random number and walked out of here today with everything you worked for. But you just couldnít resist it, could you? Iíve always assumed that love is a dangerous disadvantage. Thank you for the final proof.]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Irene''': Everything I said. Itís not real. I was just playing the game.]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Sherlock''': I know. And this is just losing.]]

** He tops it all of by being DangerouslyGenreSavvy: He leaves them alone on an impulse, but comes back just a few minutes later, probably realising that Holmes really ''won't'' stop prying.

** Obviously, what Mary did when confronting CAM wasn't good, but the image of her wearing [[spoiler: a black knit cap on her head, a bulletproof vest over her pregnant stomach, and holding a suppressed Walther PPK]] is awesome. PregnantBadass, indeed.
** Mary flips a 50p piece in the air and [[spoiler: shoots a hole clean through it]]. Looks like she's an even better [[spoiler: crack shot]] than her husband. And remember Sherlock deduces her as short-sighted...

* Even if he was a complete bastard, and even if he wasn't the most memorable villain on this show, the Mayfly Man's plan to infiltrate John's wedding was one of the most ingeniously simple schemes that we've seen so far here. He needed to slip into a private wedding and commit a murder under the noses of two private detectives and a whole gaggle of Scotland Yard cops, then slip out again without a trace. And he ''almost'' pulled it off. How? [[spoiler: He posed as the wedding photographer. Wedding guests always ignore the photographer, and the photographer is the one person that never shows up in any wedding photos.]]

He posed as a casual tourist long enough to use his murder weapon on Bainbridge, which almost completely worked. How? By simply putting a tiny spike through their belts, so when they took it off the sudden blood loss would occur. He failed, of course, but ''damn'' if it wasn't a brilliantly planned and executed revenge for the death of his brother. Bravo, Jonathan Small.]]

* TheReveal that [[spoiler: Sherlock]] spent 2 years travelling around the world, [[spoiler: busting up Moriarty's worldwide crime network on his own]]. Yep, Sherlock's also a friggin' OneManArmy, just like [[Literature/JamesBond another British fictional hero]].

* Irene Adler enters the room, completely naked, make-up applied, and [[SherlockScan Sherlock's infamous scanning system]] can't make anything out about her. Is it blatant FanService? Yes. Is it an excellent way of showing what kind of foe Sherlock is up against? Oh God, yes!

* A small one for Mycroft. When Sherlock asks John about his night with Sarah and the lilo, Mycroft corrects him: "Sofa, Sherlock, it was the sofa." We don't see Sherlock get it wrong much and we definitely don't see him get called out on it.
