[[folder: Post-Abominable Bride Predictions]]

[[WMG: Mary is part of the group that is impersonating Moriarty.]]
While she wasn't part of the army of women at the end, she did say early in the episode that she was a suffragist. This seems to indicate she had some kind of involvement with the other women, so she could be part of Moriarty's group.

[[WMG: Redbeard will play a major part in Series 4.]]
First a mention as a pressure point in His Last Vow, now he's mentioned and written in Mycroft's book at the very end. What could this mean?

[[WMG: Mycroft is part of the group that is impersonating Moriarty.]]
Why would he have that book? Why does it have Sherlock's pressure point written in it? Also, in conjunction with the above theory, he was working with Mary...

[[WMG: Sherlock has a psychic connection with his Victorian counterpart.]]
It explains why they exist in each other's mind palaces.

[[WMG: All of the women who were unmasked are part of the group impersonating Moriarty.]]
Janine, Watson's servant (who doesn't have a modern counterpart?), and Molly Hooper are unmasked in Sherlock's brain as being part of the group. At the end, Sherlock says he has deduced who is impersonating Moriarty and he knows what they will do next. What if these women being unmasked are Sherlock deducing who they really are? It also explains why Mary and Irene Adler are not shown as being part of this group, as they are not impersonating Moriarty.

* I came here to posit this idea. What are the odds that two relatively normal people would produce not one, but two borderline sociopath genius children? I think the only one who is genetically abnormal is Mycroft. Sherlock developed the way he is due to Mycroft's influence. Presume Mycroft as a supergenius first child. The parents would likely become used to him being very independent and self-directed. So much so that Sherlock didn't receive as much attention as he should have from them when he came along. Instead, he was almost entirely socialized by his sociopath of an older brother. Further he doesn't need to be supergenius also. Intelligence can be learned and a desire to learn and think can go a lot further than "natural" intelligence. Yes, Sherlock is smart, but that's more due to the drive caused by sibling rivalry. Yes, Sherlock is inept with people, because by the time he was around other people, Mycroft had poisoned him against them. His interactions were always clouded by his persistent belief in their inferiority. It's not until he starts being around people with some consistency that he starts developing his emotional center.

[[WMG: In the Sherlock Universe, Arthur Conan Doyle...]]

...wrote only one detective story about a consulting detective named "Sherringford Hope". However, in this world modern forensics developed just in time to solve the Whitechapel murders: this, along with other general reforms restored public belief in the police system and they didn't like how Doyle made Scotland Yard look incompetent, and the book flopped. Doyle devoted the rest of his life to writing Historical Fiction and the occasional experiment into other genres such as Science Fiction and Science Fantasy.

It's this world's version of ''Arsene Lupin'' that popularizes detectives, in which the dapper (French) GentlemanThief had a WorthyOpponent (British ex-pat) police detective named Harry Showford--in fact, most early detective stories had significant overlap with the police procedural. It's only after WWI eroded faith in all government institutions that private detectives became popular and quickly went to more hardboiled/borderline vigilante depictions--Agatha Christie instead is the first (British) writer who popularizes the "drawroom detective" archetype.

* Also, what would Irene even be doing getting involved with Islamists in Pakistan without a reason like this? Doesn't sound like Irene's idea of fun.

** Allegedly Benedict Cumberbatch agrees with this one.

[[WMG:Sherlock had a huge row with his family about [[spoiler:Redbeard]] being put down.]]
There's ''something'' upsetting associated with [[spoiler:Redbeard]], given that it's one of Sherlock's 'pressure points'. The fact that Sherlock has always had trouble bonding with people would possibly indicate that his bond with Redbeard was strong even by the standards of little boys with their dog, and we know that the dog was put down... The Holmes brothers have a longstanding grudge about ''something'' and Sherlock's reaction to the dog's euthanasia might have been overblown and eventually regrettable.

[[WMG:Mrs Holmes never going back to work wasn't planned before Mycroft was born]]
But when Mycroft and then Sherlock turned out to have AmbiguousDisorder it was clear that neither of them would ever be able to function in school, and fortunately their mother was probably more capable of educating them than most people. As they're canonically 8 years apart, homeschooling them both would have taken about 20 years, long enough to fall too far behind to restart an academic career when Sherlock was more or less independent.

** From John and Mary's exchange, it sounds like Harry said she wanted to come but is now so disorganized due to her addiction that John never seriously expected she'd actually make it on the day.
