I enjoyed the episode, but not as much as the previous. I had made the same deduction that Sherlock had made about the sugar, but obviously it was false — I liked how the episode sort of had you thinking along the same path as Holmes.
The CG dog was pretty awful, but what are you gonna do? The mystery itself was decent enough, and I especially enjoyed the bit about the rabbit, but it lacked the depth that the previous episode showcased. But still enjoyable.
Also, when was Moriarty captured? I guess we can assume that it was after Sherlock outed The Woman and unlocked her phone, but I wish that we had some sort of in-between to see what occurred between the episodes.
I think the best part of this episode was, as always, the bits between Sherlock and John. I enjoyed how Watson finally got some time in as a detective (of sorts) — I feel a lot of episodes use him as comic relief, or the straight man, when he should be much more badass. His use of rank and skills with the ladies were a great utilization of his character, and I’d like to see more of that in the future.
Overall an enjoyable episode, but it definitely felt like more of a fill-in for the series, and I imagine the final two episodes will be linked together somewhat and far more important in the grander scale.
