* EvilPlan: The entirety of "The Great Game". [[spoiler:Every case Sherlock has to solve ends up having been orchestrated by Moriarty, looking for a fun challenge. It's implied that he, as a consulting criminal, has been arranging a vast array of crimes all over the place.]] Subverted in that [[spoiler:the [[KansasCityShuffle whole thing was to distract Sherlock from the plans]]. Revealed that the plans were a {{MacGuffin}}, and double-subverted, when Moriarty tosses them away.]]p

** Charles Augustus Magnussen [[spoiler: has his own version of it, with its own visual format, where he recalls brief notes about the person he's looking at from his eidetic memory instead of deducing them on the spot. Sherlock examines Magnussen's glasses just to ensure he's not ACTUALLY reading the data from them ala Google Glass.]]

** Also used earlier in the episode, when Sherlock deduces that Molly clearly has a crush on someone. Taken to hilarious / heartbreaking levels when the otherwise perspicacious Sherlock completely fails to realise that the person she's crushing on is [[him]]. [[PetTheDog He apologizes immediately afterward]].

* KarmaHoudini: It appears that Donavon, Anderson and the Reporter have suffered no punishment for completely destroying Sherlock's life on very little evidence and their own dislike for him. Or perhaps not - [[spoiler:Anderson is clearly on the verge of a mental breakdown from his own guilt, and is never shown to be actually working for the police in series 3, suggesting he may no longer be in their employ. Similarly, Donovan makes only a brief appearance in the 2nd episode, possibly implying that she may have seen her career suffer too but still seems to work directly with Lestrade]].

** In "The Empty Hearse", Sherlock gets one [[spoiler:when he realises what the text messages mean. John is in a bonfire and about to get ''burned alive'']].

to:

** In "The Empty Hearse", Sherlock has one of these when he suddenly realises [[AngerBornOfWorry how pissed off John is]] that he never told him he was alive.
** Also in
"The Empty Hearse", Sherlock gets one [[spoiler:when he realises what the text messages mean. John is in a bonfire and about to get ''burned alive'']].



** John slips into this again in "The Empty Hears" when Sherlock reveals himself in the restaurant, not having known Sherlock has been alive for two years. [[OhCrap Sherlock realises he's in trouble and admits he probably owes John an apology]].



* UnknownRival: Moriarty.

* UnknownRival: Moriarty.Moriarty before Sherlock (and the audience) meet him face to face.


Added DiffLines:

** John has a few moments of this in "The Empty Hearse" when Sherlock reveals he's still alive. John first tackles Sherlock to the floor of the restaurant and attempts to strangle him, then he gets Sherlock around the throat, and finally John headbutts him and it cuts to Sherlock with a bloody nose.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Moriarty certainly is. His relationship with Sherlock can be regarded as a battle over which of them is the more GenreSavvy. [[spoiler:Sherlock wins in the end because he anticipated that he might be required to "kill himself" convincingly.]]

*** In "His Last Vow" Mycroft calls Sherlock a “a scalpel wielded with precision” in comparison to a "blunt instrument". A "blunt instrument" was Creator/IanFleming's traditional description of Literature/JamesBond. It's also often used to distinguish their characters: Sherlock takes down criminals by analysing and figuring out their methods, while James takes down criminals using force. And fitting for a professional assassin, [[spoiler: Mary Watson]] uses a suppressed Walther PPK, Bond's signature weapon, to [[spoiler: threaten Magnussen and shoot Sherlock]].
