Guys. Are you kidding me. Moriarty died, for fuck sake.
While I know we’d all like to believe that he survived, he shot himself.
In the head.
You don’t tend to survive that, you know.
Moriarty isn’t Rory Williams or Captain Jack Harkness. He cannot survive being shot in the head.
Sherlock jumped off a building and Irene died TWICE.
Plus, has anyone seen what someone’s head looks like after they shoot themselves? It often doesn’t look like a head anymore.
Also, I’m so in love with Moriarty that I refuse to accept his death.
I’ve gone all day without making one of these posts…
I DO want them to bring Andrew Scott back, not going to lie… but it doesn’t to be a “Oh, I faked my death, trololo” kind of return. I am MORE than happy with flashbacks (of Moran’s love life with Jim) or just background info, etc etc.
But I also feel the need to point out… in canon, Moriarty was the Big Bad - there were lesser ones before and after him but no one EVER came close to James Moriarty in canon… so if BBC wants to bring in a new Baddie, it’s just not going to work as well as with Jim. Bringing in Moran would be the closest thing, especially given how bent on revenge he is after Moriarty’s death but after that, the barrel of villains starts to run dry.
