* ArtisticLicenseGunSaftey:
** At the beginning of the episode, Sherlock is so bored he's using a handgun to shoot holes into the wall to form a smiley face. This is incredibly reckless and dangerous because it would only take one resilient bullet to make it through that wall and hit someone on the other side one of the reasons it's against the law to practice shooting in a residential area outside of a shooting range. John is suitably appalled. Not only that, but in the commentary for this episode, Creator/BenedictCumberbatch mentioned that he had managed to shoot a hole in the dressing gown that was his costume for that scene.
** During the poolside confrontation, Sherlock waves the gun around for emphasis, before SCRATCHING HIS HEAD WITH IT. Bear in mind the gun is loaded, no safety, and cocked, with his finger still on the trigger. Granted, he is having a bit of an emotional meltdown at the time, what with his only real friend at that time being wired with explosives and all.

** The snippet of a planetarium show we see says the Earth would fit into Jupiter 11 times. It's more like 1300; 11 Earths would be no more than a line across it's diameter.

* EmbarrassingRingtone: Moriarty's "Staying Alive" ringtone qualifies. It's hard to be menacing with Music/TheBeeGees providing a bouncy little riff.

* IdiotBall: There is no other explanation for why West would have copied the Bruce-Partington Plans to an easily portable medium and taken them to the pub instead of just leaving them in the secure facility they were supposed to be in.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Moriarty gets two. His first appearance has him [[spoiler: masquerade as "Jim from IT", the [[TransparentCloset obviously gay]] boyfriend of Molly which retrospectively shows how capable he is at being HiddenInPlainSight]], while his second appearance has him introduce himself while holding John hostage with a suicide-vest, being alternatively affable and menacing, in addition to establishing him as a complete sociopath and Sherlock's EvilCounterpart.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Moriarty mockingly feigns an expression of shock, after commenting that if Sherlock ''did'' decide to shoot him in the face, all he'd get to enjoy is his look of genuine surprise. In "The Reichenbach Fall", Moriarty adopts the same expression when [[spoiler:he decides to spite Sherlock, by turning his gun on himself.]]
