** Sherlock surely is as he participates in the killer's sick game even though he has absolutely no reason to, simply wanting to prove he could have "won" because he refuses to back down from any test of his intellect, even a lethal one.

* BatmanGambit: Jeff Hope pulls one in the final moments of the show. Sherlock already figured out he has no reason to accede his captor's demand to play the deadly game because he has nothing holding him to, the killer's weapon being a prop lighter. As he leaves, Hope asks if Sherlock had figured out which bottle was really poisoned and by that simple question, Sherlock gets baited into playing the game simply by his own desire to prove himself.

* TakeAThirdOption: DoubleSubverted. Rather than play the killer's game, Sherlock decides to take his chances with the gun, which turns out to be a cigarette lighter, correctly deducing that the killer's MO is to outwit his prey, not simply shoot them dead and that the "gun" was merely persuasion. Free to leave of his own accord, Sherlock stands up to do so but then the killer manages to bait him into his game by asking if Sherlock had figured him out, to which Sherlock can't resist and ends up nearly taking the pill.
