Die ersten fünf Minuten wird erklärt, wie er seinen Tod inszenierte, allerdings bleibt es im Prinzip auch weiterhin ungeklärt, da es anhand einer Theorie von Anderson erklärt wird, die Lestrade für lächerlich hält.
Molly hat Sherlock bei der Inszenierung geholfen, in dem der tote Moriarty mit einer von Molly angefertigten Sherlock-Maske herunter gestossen wurde, die beiden küssen sich zum Abschied durch ein Fenster.
Die vergangen zwei Jahre war Sherlock damit beschäftigt, Moriartys verbleibendes Netzwerk zu zerstören.
Mycroft holt Sherlock zurück nach London, da es Hinweise auf einen großen terroristischen Anschlag gibt, den Sherlock verhindern soll, und ausgerechnet, an dem Tag, an dem Watson sich mit seiner neuen Liebe Mary in einem sehr feinen Lokal verloben möchte, kreuzt Sherlock wieder auf, dass Watson darüber „not amused“ ist, kann man sich vorstellen.
Watson wird entführt und stirbt beinahe in einem Lagerfeuer, doch Mary und Sherlock können ihn in letzter Minute retten.
Die terroristische Bedrohung nimmt immer mehr zu, so dass Sherlock und Watson in einer mit Bomben vollgepackten U-Bahn enden, und beinahe gemeinsam dort ums Leben kommen.
Wesentlich detaillierter, gespickt mit vielen zusätzlichen Informationen, findet man all dieses in den Zitaten aus zwei Blogs, aus denen ich hier zitierte.
Einen herzlichen Dank an Amanda Abbington, die so sauer war , dass eines nachts auf einem tumblr-Blog Informationen über die erste Episode der neuen Sherlock Staffel veröffentlicht worden sind, dass sie darüber öffentliche twitterte, weil dieser Blog Spoiler enthält.
Einen weiteren ebenso herzlichen Dank an BBC One, die ebenfalls öffentlich twitterten, dass dieser tumblr-Blog Spoiler enthält, die seitens der BBC mit einer Presse Sperrfrist versehen sind.
Man kann also mit an Sicherheit grenzender Wahrscheinlichkeit davon ausgehen, dass die Informationen des Blog, der mittlerweile von tumblr entfernt wurde, der Wahrheit entsprechen, da unmittelbar an der Produktion beteiligte Seiten „not amused“ darüber waren.
Die gesamte Sherlock-Fangemeinde war und ist immer noch in hellster Aufruhr wegen dieses Blogs, und warnte eindringlich vor „Major Spoilers“dort, darunter auch einige, die die Sherlock-Preview am vergangenen Sonntagselbst gesehen haben, womit eine weitere Bestätigung des Wahrheitsgehaltes der Spoilererkennbar ist, und diejenigen (darunter auch „Setlocker“), die zur Zeit hysterisch jedwede Spoiler verhindern/nicht lesen möchten, bestätigten , dass es sich hier erstens um Spoiler handelt und zweitens einige dieser Spoiler Fehler enthalten.
Woher können die hysterischen Dramaqueens das überhaupt wissen?
Man setzt doch gerade alles auf eine rote Liste, um bloß keinen Spoiler zu lesen!
Shame on you!
Und mit jeder Warnung vor diesen Spoilern, mit jedem öffentlichen Wutausbruch darüber und mit jeder weiteren öffentlichen Bestätigung geben diese „Sherlock Engelchen“ dem Streisand-Effekt Zucker, aber davon haben wohl weder Abbington noch BBC One und auch die Fangemeinde etwas gehört, selbst wenn einige aus letzterer sogar „irgendetwas mit Medien“ studieren.
Hätte man den Blog ganz einfach zur Kenntnis genommen, wäre es einfach ein weiterer Sherlock-Blog am letzten Ende des Netzuniversums gewesen, -nicht mehr oder weniger- mit Informationen, denen man glauben kann oder auch nicht.
Das einzige, was wirklich das allerletzte an diesem Blog war, ist der Fakt, dass man eine freundliche junge Dame dafür verantwortlich gemacht hat, diese „Major-Spoiler“ weitergereicht zu haben, das jedoch hätten man ohne viel Tam-Tam mit einer Meldung an tumblr ganz einfach regeln können.
Und ohne diesen ganzen Zinnober, hätten ich den Blog gar nicht gefunden, hätte keine Screenshots davon machen können, und die dort enthaltenen Informationen zitieren können.
UPDATE! found another tumblr called pizzagrapes today, took a screenshot and here is a summary of what they wrote, many thanks
The Fall and why is this Episode called “The empty hearse”?
1. „…It opens with the fall. Sherlock is on a bungee and it is Moriarty who is on the ground with a skin graft by Molly. Derren Brown hypnotises John and puts his watch back. Meanwhile Sherlock crashes through a window and kisses Molly. Except this is how Anderson thinks it goes. Lestrade thinks this is ridiculous and says Anderson is just trying to cope with his guilt for causing an innocent man to die. Moriarty is found to have been the real bad guy as we all know…“
2. „…Cuts back to the fall again, Sherlock standing on the ledge is just a dummy with a piece of string on it. Sherlock and Moriarty are on the roof giggling about what they’re up to. They catch each other’s eyes and kiss. Except this is a theory from someone in The Empty Hearse, Anderson’s new Sherlock conspiracy theory group….“
3. „…It cuts to Sherlock telling Anderson on tape how he did it. Back to the fall, Sherlock and Mycroft were in it together from the start. They needed Moriarty to believe he had the upper hand and that he had slipped. The little girl in the police station was scared of Sherlock as Moriarty had recruited a lookalike who he had disposed of when he had done with him. Molly had been asked to find this body. The fall was staged based on John’s positioning and a combination of using this fake body and a crash mat, Sherlock survived. He used a bouncy ball to cut his pulse. Completely disappointed Anderson is distraught at its simplicity and pulls down all his conspiracy theories….“
“ … Meanwhile John is mourning but he has found love. He goes to Baker St to tell Mrs Hudson who is surprised as she thought he and Sherlock were an item.
Sherlock wants an inventive way to reintroduce himself to John and finds out he’s dining in a restaurant. Except it’s the day that John is hoping to propose to his fiancé. Sherlock dresses as a waiter and eventually gets johns attention. John is livid and upset. Sherlock doesn’t seem sorry and in fact just makes fun of his moustache. John attacks him and the get kicked out. In the cafe John says he doesn’t care how he did it but why. Sherlock wants them to get back together again. However his flippancy means John beats him up. Again. And again. He eventually leaves with Mary. Mary tells Sherlock she will try and win John round and admits to John that she likes Sherlock.
Meanwhile John cannot concentrate and even attacks one of his patients (he’s now a GP) falsely thinking he’s Sherlock in a disguise trying to recruit him again….“
“ … Sherlock realises he’s not going to get anywhere with John so starts solving crimes with Molly including a skeleton that seems like it could be Jack the Ripper but turns out to be fake. Sherlock thanks Molly for all she did and Molly tells him she’s engaged. And not in love with a psychopath this time…“
“ … Cut to in Serbia local forces track down a disheveled man. They beat him in a cell; except one of them turns out to be Mycroft. The disheveled man is Sherlock. Mycroft wants him back in London as there’s a terrorist alert.
Sherlock is back in London as Mycroft briefs him…
Mycroft is at Baker Street and has a conversation with Sherlock trying to outwit each other on deducing who owns a hat that has been found. The person who’s hat it is knows how to help with the terrorist threat.
The hat is returned to the person with the interesting information. He works in the Underground and has found footage of a man who gets on an empty tube at one station and isn’t there the next.
After a lot of thinking, it is noticed that the entire carriage itself doesn’t show up at the next station so Sherlock deduces there’s a hidden station in between. It is the 5th November so posits that it is similar to Guy Fawkes and the terrorist plot is to blow up parliament which is directly above where this station must be. The person who disappears is an MP who doesn’t want a terrorist bill to pass. He won’t be at the vote, he’ll be somewhere else detonating this bomb.
Roping John along they find the carriage and realise this is the bomb itself. The timer is initiated and neither Sherlock nor John know what to do. It appears to be over. John tells Sherlock everything he felt whilst Sherlock was “dead” and Sherlock starts to cry and apologises.
Back in the tube, they’re still alive. The clock had stopped. There was an off switch, there always is on a bomb. Sherlock’s “tears” happen to be fake to get John to tell him that he misses what they do. The police come and arrest the MP.
Sherlock is back at Baker St to meet the press on his return. He’s back. And puts on the deerstalker to hi-light this….“
John is walking down the street and gets attacked and drugged by some unknown assailant. A text is sent to Mary in code. She runs to find Sherlock but she has already worked it out before he has. John is in danger and they must go to a location the text says. Worrying they don’t have much time, Sherlock finds a motorcycle and they dart across London. At the same time they’re getting taunting texts about how much time is left.
Eventually they get to a public square with a bonfire; turns out John is underneath. The fire is lit and Sherlock and Molly get there just in time to rescue John.
This appears to help the friendship a bit and John even goes to visit (whilst Sherlock’s completely ordinary parents come round). The final scene is a man in front of a screen watching Sherlock rescue John from the bonfire over and over again. This is Magnussen.
Amanda Abbindgton, who was so angry about these tumblr spoilers, and bbc one which means they are def. confirmed
I LOVE YOU! 😀
and these people (Setlockians, too), who do not want to see #sherlock#spoilers confirm that there is a false one in it, how did/could they know?
Shame on you! 😀
“ … 1. The first 5 mins show how “sherlock did it” except not really because it ends up being anderson’s theory
2. there’s a sherlolly kiss in anderson’s theory, and you see it
3. his theory is that they used moriarty’s body, with a mould of sherlocks face on it, and that sherlock bungee jumped from the roof and put moriarty on the ground and with the help of derren brown, john did not see
4. sherlock reveals that he’s been destroying moriarty’s network for 2 years. mycroft took him home.
5. sherlock revealed himself to john by going to the restaurant,dressing up as a waiter, putting on glasses, drawing on a moustache and going up to john and using a fake french accent. it takes two attempts because john doesn’t look at him the first time round.
6. john gets kidnapped
7. he almost dies in a bonfire
8. sherlock’s parents are in the ep, and it’s ben’s actual parents
9. sherlock and john almost die in a underground carriage full of bombs, and sherlock acts like he can’t disarm them, asks john for forgiveness, and when john lets out his feelings, sherlock laughs and reveals he disarmed it the whole time

saw it yesterday, and is so kind and answer question trying not to be spoilery, here is a summary of the question she answered so far
(I LOVE HER for that!) MANY THANKS!)
The empty hearse is:
all focused on the reveal, and then the terrorist subject matter.
There’s kissing, a bit of physical violence (for Sherlock) , the threat of death and the terrorist attack subject matter
new villain in this episode: scary
Moran, and he does appear, and of course he’s gonna play a big part.
the whole terrorist thing and it’s definitely more threatening and realistic almost. It’s a lot bigger than something Sherlock has ever dealt with before.
How he faked his dead:
the explanation to Sherlock’s faked death wasn’t the biggest surprise in the entire world and it’s still a little ambiguous.
we find out why the little girl screamed at Sherlock in TRF
!one of the theory being written is right!
Flashbacks: there’s a Sherlock one (what he did during the years)
Sherlock has developed a lot more positive human traits
Sherlock, Mycroft and their family:
Mycroft appears more than previous episodes, other family memembers appear, too! (Mum&Dad?)
the reunion 100% in fact inside of the restaurant
John: You’ve missed this, haven’t you?
Sherlock: Missed what?
John: Being Sherlock Holmes. Being the hero.
the Sherlock/Molly friendship has developed
Sherlock’s stopped being an idiot to her after all
Sherlock saying she deserves happiness, and that not everyone she falls for will be a sociopath)
it’s very evident with Molly that he is more “human” now
Molly: Maybe it’s just my type!
John: You’ve been the best thing that’s happened to me.
Mary: I know.
John: You know what?
Mary: That I’m the best thing that’s happened to you.
So it is quite clear who took Sherlocks part as he was not there 😀
no donovan, no Irene Adler
much more Anderson not a lot lestrad compared to anderson,
Sherlock: (about John’s moustache) It’s not a joke then? You’re keeping it?
John: I like it. Mary likes it.
Sherlock: No she doesn’t.
John looks to Mary who smiles and shrugs.
Mary: I didn’t wanna say anything.
