* WorstAid: Sherlock is flipped over and moved onto a stretcher after he's just fallen from a building, with no precautions taken such as stabilising his head or neck. It's made worse by the fact that it was ''hospital workers'' who were doing this. It's possible they my have pronounced him dead on impact, deeming any further precautions unnecessary. However, [[spoiler:the next episode shows that he didn't hit the concrete, but rather, a giant air mattress that broke his fall, and the paramedics were a combination of bought off medics and members of Sherlock's homeless network who were in on the scheme.]]

* {{Jerkass}}: The Chief Superintendent. While his anger at Lestrade is [[JerkassHasAPoint justified]], there's no excuse for instantly getting confrontational with John for just ''looking at him'' in his own apartment.

* RealityEnsues: Sergeant Donovan makes Lestrade take her doubts to the [[DaChief Chief Superintendent]], who's under the impression that Sherlock has only helped on a few minor cases. The reveal that Sherlock (a civilian) has been given unmitigated access to sensitive data and cases leads him to tear Lestrade a new one and order him to bring Sherlock in.

It's been suspected that the people "treating" him may have been in on the death-fakery, in which case they probably know something we don't.
** Or, they simply pronounced him dead on the spot, deeming any further precautions unnecessary.

* ExtremeDoormat: Oh, Molly.

to:

* ExtremeDoormat: Oh, Molly. To give her some credit, though, it's ultimately portrayed more positively here than it was in many previous episodes. She was the first (and for quite a while, the only) person who realized that there was something uncharacteristically ''very'' wrong with Sherlock that he was trying to hide from everyone (even John--heck, ''especially'' John), so it makes sense that, once she realized just how much trouble Sherlock was really in and that she was the only person he could come to, she would be willing to help him. Doormat? Yes. UndyingLoyalty? Also yes.



* IdiotBall: Some extremely circumstantial evidence leads Donovan and Lestrade to believe that Sherlock kidnapped and poisoned two children. Anderson even speculates that Sherlock may have committed ''twenty or thirty crimes'' that he had helped the police investigate in the past, despite the piles of hard evidence that discount such a theory.
** Aided by the fact that Lestrade is the only inspector in London who even tolerates Sherlock, and only because his skills were useful. With that removed, their universal hatred of him reduces them to being Moriarty's puppets.

** Yes, Random Internet Person, but only if I had hydrolysed the oil prior to detecting glycerol. Which I can't recall doing. (Also, John says not to call you Random Internet Person. I don't know why).
