IGN: Sherlock: The Final Problem Review

Recommended Posts

The following review contains full spoilers for this week's episode of Sherlock.

If there isn’t to be another season of Sherlock, The Final Problem provided a fitting conclusion to Moffat and Gatiss’s incarnation. Not only did it provide fresh insight into what made Sherlock the way he is, it also left him in a stronger, happier place, and also much closer to the character we know from other adaptations.

Last week's episode concluded with the reveal of Eurus, the forgotten sister of Sherlock and Mycroft, who has been posing as various characters throughout the season and manipulating her brothers. The closing scene saw her shoot John. In true Sherlock fashion, that cliffhanger is quickly pushed to one side (it was apparently a tranquilliser, though you never get to see how it played out). Anyway, Eurus – we learn that she was the youngest of the Holmes children, and was considered by a variety of professionals to be an 'era-defining genius' – comparable to Newton – but her prodigious intellect placed her moveon 'small' moral concepts, like good and evil.
