What’s in Store for the Third Season of “Sherlock”?

Steven Moffat is dropping hints again. Like last season when he hinted “Adler. Hound. Reichenbach.” to announce that the episodes would be based on “A Scandal in Bohemia”, the novel-length The Hound of the Baskervilles, and “The Final Problem”, he has given fans three words. And those words are:

“Rat. Wedding. Bow.”

My predictions for the episodes of season 3 are as follows:

Rat = “The Rat of Sumatra”, a case mentioned in the original Sherlock Holmes stories but which Sir Arthur Conan Doyle never imparted to us.

Wedding = The Sign of Four, the second Sherlock Holmes novel where Dr. Watson meets his wife, Mary. I’m especially excited for this one because I was always interested to see how it would be adapted to the 21st century.

Bow = “His Last Bow”, a story that outlines how Holmes came out of retirement to thwart Nazi plans in World War II. I’m really hoping this isn’t a sign that season 3 is the last season.

The BBC America blog has a blurb on it, too: http://www.bbcamerica.com/anglophenia/2012/08/steven-moffat-teases-sherlock-season-three-with-three-words/

    Thought I was the only one who loved this show! Am eagerly awaiting the next season. Better not be their last. Too good of a show to go away so soon.
