So Sherlock surprised everybody by sort of turning into a sitcom for most of the episode.

This confused some people.

Yes. Drunk Sherlock's drunk deductions were undeniably the best.

“Egg… sitty thing?”

Although some people thought they spotted a similarity to another TV character.

And a lot of people couldn't help notice that for a long time the focus of the episode was mostly wedding logistics.

(We take a short break here to spend some time considering the bit where Sherlock ruffled his hair.)

Meanwhile, others had important issues on their minds.

It turns out that Irene Adler keeps turning up in Sherlock's Mind Palace at inconvenient moments.

(Oh, and we learned that Sherlock's Mind Palace is the London Film Museum's debating chamber.)

Not entirely sure what's going on in this picture from the show's makeup designer but WHO CARES?

But lots of people are concerned that everything's been much too lighthearted and that therefore the Hammer of Tears is about to come crashing down.

And final word before nighttime coma – drunk Sherlock terrifyingly, hysterically similar to a drunk Cumberbatch 🙂
