- 1. Head cocked to the left...
- 2. partial deafness in ear.
- 3. First point of attack.
- 4. Two, throat. Paralyze vocal cords.
- 5. Three, got to be heavy drinker.
Floating rib to the liver.
- 6. Four, finally, dragging left leg.
Fist to patella.
- 7. Summary of prognosis,
conscious in 90 seconds.
- 8. Martial efficacy, quarter of an hour.
- 9. Full faculty recovery, unlikely.
- 10. I like the hat.
- 11. I just picked it up.
- 12. Did you remember your revolver?
- 13. Knew I forgot something.
- 14. - Thought I'd left the stove on.
- You did.
- 15. I think that's quite enough.
- 16. You are a doctor, after all.
- 17. Always nice to see you, Watson.
- 18. Where's the inspector?
- 19. He's getting his troops lined up.
- 20. That could be all day.
- 21. Sherlock Holmes.
- 22. And his loyal dog.
- 23. Tell me, doctor...
- 24. as a medical man,
have you enjoyed my work?
- 25. Let me show you
how much I've enjoyed it.
- 26. Watson. Don't.
- 27. Observe.
- 28. How did you see that?
- 29. Because I was looking for it.
- 30. Lord Blackwood.
- 31. You seem surprised.
- 32. I'd say the girl deserves your attention
more than he.
- 33. Indeed.
- 34. Oh, I'd leave that alone
if I were you, boy-o.
- 35. Good lad.
- 36. Impeccable timing, Lestrade.
- 37. We've one for the doctor...
- 38. and one for the rope.
- 39. - Clarkie?
- 40. This woman needs a hospital
- 41. Put her in the back of the Moriah.
- 42. Right, lads. That's it.
- 43. Right. Pick him up, lads.
- 44. If you don't mind.
- 45. Get him out of my sight.
- 46. And you were supposed to
wait for my orders.
- 47. If I had, you'd be cleaning up a corpse
and chasing a rumor.
- 48. Besides, the girl's parents hired me,
not the Yard.
- 49. Why they thought you'd require
any assistance is beyond me.
- 50. Well, London will breathe a sigh of relief.
- 51. Indeed. Congratulations, Lestrade.
- 52. Bravo, inspector. Have a cigar.
- 53. Gentlemen.
- 54. Cheese.
- 55. Blackwood hangs tomorrow.
Read all about it.
- 56. 156 over 80. Very good.
- 57. My nerves are the best they've been
in years, thanks to you.
- 58. Tell me something.
- 59. Your new premises...
- 60. when are you moving in?
- 61. I should be in within the week.
- 62. Cavendish Place.
And there'll be a woman's touch too.
- 63. - Well, that's marvelous.
- 64. Good God.
- 65. - That was gunfire.
- 66. No, no. Hammer and nail, wasn't it?
- 67. My colleague's probably
just putting up a painting.
- 68. I'll... I'll go and check.
- 69. - Your colleague...
- 70. Won't be moving with you, will he?
- 71. No, he won't.
- 72. Mrs. Hudson.
- 73. I won't go in,
not while he's got a gun in his hand.
- 74. You don't have to. Give me the paper.
- 75. What'll I do when you leave, doctor?
He'll have the whole house down.
- 76. He just needs another case. That's all.
- 77. Couldn't you have a longer engagement?
- 78. I smell gunpowder. It's not right, you know,
not in a domestic environment.
- 79. Thank you, Captain Philips.
Perhaps a nice cup of tea?
- 80. - Same time next week.
- Come along, captain.
- 81. - It's quieter downstairs.
- Mrs. Hudson?
- 82. Bring something to cheer him up.
- 83. Permission to enter the armory?
- 84. Granted.
- 85. Watson, I am in the process
of inventing a device...
- 86. that suppresses the sound
of a gunshot.
- 87. It's not working.
- 88. Can I see that?
- 89. You know, it's been three months...
- 90. since your last case.
- 91. Yes, yes. Gently, gently, Watson.
Be gentle with me...
- 92. Don't you think it's time
you found another one?
- 93. I can't but agree.
- 94. My mind rebels at stagnation.
Give me problems. Give me work.
- 95. The sooner, the better.
- 96. Paper.
- 97. Let's see, then. There's a letter here...
- 98. from Mrs. Ramsey of Queen's Park.
- 99. - Her husband's disappeared.
- He's in Belgium with the scullery maid.
- 100. Is it November?
- 101. Yes, Holmes. All right.
- 102. Lady Radford reports...
- 103. Oh, her emerald bracelet
- 104. Insurance swindle. Lord Radford
likes fast women and slow ponies.
- 105. Oh. I see you're the attending physician
at Blackwood's hanging.
- 106. Yes.
- 107. It was our last case together
and I wanted to see it through to the end.
- 108. A Mr. Lewis is seeking...
- 109. There's only one case
that intrigues me at present:
- 110. The curious case of Mrs. Hudson,
the absentee landlady.
- 111. I've been studying
her comings and goings.
- 112. They appear most sinister.
- 113. Tea, Mr. Holmes?
- 114. Is it poisoned, nanny?
- 115. There's enough of that in you already.
- 116. Don't touch.
Everything is in its proper place...
- 117. as per usual, nanny.
- 118. He's killed the dog. Again.
- 119. What have you done to Gladstone now?
- 120. I was simply testing a new anesthetic.
- 121. He doesn't mind.
- 122. Holmes, as your doctor...
- 123. - He'll be as right as a trivet in no time.
- As your friend...
- 124. you've been in this room for two weeks.
I insist, you have to get out.
- 125. There's nothing of interest for me
out there, on earth, at all.
- 126. - You're free this evening?
- 127. - Dinner? The Royale?
- Wonderful. My favorite.
- 128. Mary's coming.
- 129. - Not available.
- You're meeting her, Holmes.
- 130. Have you proposed yet?
- 131. - No, I haven't found the right ring.
- Then it's not official.
- 132. It's happening, whether you like it or not.
- 133. 8:30, the Royale. Wear a jacket.
- 134. You wear a jacket.
- 135. A man? Outside my house?
- 136. Straighten your tie.
- 137. - Holmes.
- 138. You're early.
- 139. Fashionably.
- 140. Miss Mary Morstan.
- 141. My goodness. What a pleasure.
- 142. I don't know why it's taken him so long
to introduce us properly.
- 143. Pleasure is mine.
- 144. It really is quite a thrill to meet you,
- 145. I've heard so much about you.
- 146. I have a pile of detective novels at home.
- 147. - Wilkie Collins, Poe.
- It's true.
- 148. It can seem a little far-fetched
- 149. making grand assumptions
out of tiny details.
- 150. That's not quite right, is it?
- 151. In fact, the little details
are by far the most important.
- 152. - Take Watson.
- I intend to.
- 153. See his walking stick?
A rare African snakewood...
- 154. hiding a blade of high-tensile steel.
- 155. A few were awarded
to veterans of the Afghan war...
- 156. so I can assume
he's a decorated soldier.
- 157. Strong, brave,
born to be a man of action.
- 158. And neat, like all military men.
- 159. Now, I check his pockets.
- 160. Ah. A stub from a boxing match.
Now I can infer that he's a bit of a gambler.
- 161. I'd keep an eye on that dowry.
- 162. - Those days are behind me.
- Right behind you.
- 163. He's cost us the rent more than once.
- 164. Well, with all due respect, Mr. Holmes,
you know John very well.
- 165. What about a complete stranger?
- 166. - What can you tell about me?
- 167. - I don't think...
- I don't know that...
- 168. - Not at dinner.
- Some other time.
- 169. - I insist.
- You insist?
- 170. - You remember we discussed this.
- The lady insists.
- 171. - You're a governess.
- Well done.
- 172. Yes, well done. Shall we?
- 173. - Waiter?
- Your student...
- 174. is a boy of 8.
- 175. - Charlie's 7, actually.
- Charlie, huh?
- 176. Then he's tall for his age.
He flicked ink at you today.
- 177. Is there ink on my face?
- 178. There's nothing wrong with your face.
- 179. There are two drops on your ear, in fact.
- 180. India blue's nearly impossible
to wash off.
- 181. A very impetuous act by the boy.
- 182. But you're too experienced
to react rashly...
- 183. which is why the lady for whom you work
lent you that.
- 184. Oriental pearls, diamonds, a flawless ruby.
Hardly the gems of a governess.
- 185. The jewels you are not wearing
tell us more.
- 186. - Holmes.
- You were engaged.
- 187. The ring is gone,
but the lighter skin suggests...
- 188. that you spent some time abroad
wearing it proudly...
- 189. until you were informed
of its true, modest worth.
- 190. You broke off the engagement...
- 191. and returned to England
for better prospects.
- 192. A doctor, perhaps.
- 193. Right on all counts, Mr. Holmes,
apart from one.
- 194. I didn't leave him.
- 195. He died.
- 196. Well done, old boy.
- 197. - Fight. Fight.
- Get him.
- 198. Get up and fight.
- 199. Fight.
- 200. - Finish it.
- Come on.
- 201. Get up and fight, come on.
- 202. Come on.
- 203. Get up.
- 204. Get up and fight.
- 205. That's it, big man, we're done.
- 206. You won, congratulations.
- 207. We ain't done yet.
- 208. This mustn't register
on an emotional level.
- 209. First, distract target.
- 210. Then block his blind jab.
- 211. Counter with cross to left cheek.
- 212. Discombobulate.
- 213. Dazed, he'll attempt wild haymaker.
- 214. Employ elbow block, and body shot.
- 215. Block feral left. Weaken right jaw.
- 216. Now fracture.
- 217. Break cracked ribs.
- 218. Traumatize so! Ar plexus.
- 219. Dislocate jaw entirely.
- 220. Heel kick to diaphragm.
- 221. ! n summary, ears ringing, jaw fractured,
three ribs cracked, four broken...
- 222. diaphragm hemorrhaging,
physical recovery, six weeks...
- 223. full psychological recovery,
- 224. capacity to spit at back of head...
- 225. neutralized.
- 226. Where did that come from?
- 227. What the hell's going on here, Charlie?
- 228. Lord Blackwood's put him
under some kind of spell, sir.
- 229. It's like he's burning from the inside out.
- 230. You lot, shut up!
- 231. Charlie. Charlie!
- 232. Take this man to the infirmary, now.
- 233. What's this all about, then, Blackwood?
- 234. There's someone I want to see.
- 235. - Watson?
- 236. Let's go.
- 237. What started merely as an experiment...
- 238. has brought me to the threshold
of a monumental discovery.
- 239. Now, if I play a chromatic scale...
- 240. there's no measurable response.
- 241. You do know what you're drinking
is meant for eye surgery?
- 242. But, now...
- 243. and this is remarkable...
- 244. if I change to atonal clusters...
- 245. voilà, they fly in counterclockwise,
synchronized concentric circles...
- 246. as though a regimented flock.
- 247. Watson, this is exceptional.
- 248. I, using musical theory,
have created order out of chaos.
- 249. How did you lure them in?
- 250. Excellent question.
- 251. Individually. I've been at it for six hours.
- 252. - And what happens if I do this?
- 253. - Right.
- Clean yourself up.
- 254. You are Blackwood's last request.
- 255. Look at those towering structures.
- 256. It's the first combination of bascule
and suspension bridge ever attempted.
- 257. Most innovative.
- 258. What an industrious empire.
- 259. Hm?
- 260. Oh, I have your winnings from last night.
- 261. You weren't there,
so I made your customary bet.
- 262. Right. I'll keep it with your checkbook,
locked safely away in my drawer.
- 263. Did you know the opera house
is featuring Don Giovanni?
- 264. I could procure a couple of tickets if you
had any cultural inclinations this evening.
- 265. You have the grand gift of silence,
- 266. It makes you quite invaluable
as a companion.
- 267. I knew she'd been engaged.
- 268. She had told me.
- 269. So that's no to the opera, then?
- 270. - That was my waistcoat.
- We agreed it's too small for you.
- 271. - I'd like it back.
- We agreed.
- 272. I want it back.
- 273. This way, Mr. Holmes.
- 274. Blackwood certainly seems to have got
the crowd into something of a fear frenzy.
- 275. Which I'm certain will disperse
once his feet have stopped twitching.
- 276. Care to come along?
- 277. No, old cock.
I've no business with him whilst he's alive.
- 278. Suit yourself, mother hen.
- 279. It seems you have lots of rooms to let.
- 280. We had to move the prisoners, sir.
Otherwise we were gonna have a riot.
- 281. He has a peculiar effect on the inmates.
- 282. As though...
- 283. he can get inside their heads.
- 284. I can find my own way
if you have other duties to perform.
- 285. Much obliged, sir. Thank you, sir.
- 286. If any man have an ear, let him hear.
- 287. I stood upon the sand of the sea
and saw a beast rise up...
- 288. having seven heads and 10 horns.
- 289. Upon his heads were
the name of blasphemy.
- 290. They worshiped the dragon,
which gave power.
- 291. They worshiped, saying,
"Who is like unto the beast?"
- 292. The beast which I saw
was like a leopard.
- 293. His feet were of a bear,
his mouth was of a lion...
- 294. and the dragon gave him his power
and his seat and great authority.
- 295. I love what you've done with the place.
- 296. So glad you could accept my invitation.
- 297. I just have a small point of concern.
- 298. - How can I help?
- I'd followed the murders with interest.
- 299. While my heart went out
to the families of the victims...
- 300. I couldn't but notice a criminal mastery
in the stroke of your brush.
- 301. - You're too kind.
- However, by comparison...
- 302. your work in the crypt
was more akin to a finger painting.
- 303. So now you're curious
as to whether there's a larger game afoot.
- 304. Either that or, um...
- 305. shortly my friend will pronounce you dead
and I thought I might keep him company.
- 306. Your mistake is to imagine that
anything earthly's led to this moment.
- 307. Your error ofjudgment is to assume
that I'm holding the brush at all.
- 308. - I'm merely the channel.
- My only wish is that I caught you sooner.
- 309. You see,
five lives might have been spared.
- 310. Mm. Those lives were a necessity.
- 311. Hm.
- 312. Sacrifice.
- 313. Five meaningless creatures
called to serve a greater purpose.
- 314. I wonder if they'd let Watson and me
dissect your brain.
- 315. After you're hanged, of course.
- 316. I'd wager there's some deformity
that'd be scientifically significant.
- 317. Then you, too,
could serve a greater purpose.
- 318. Mr. Holmes, you must widen your gaze.
- 319. I'm concerned you underestimate
the gravity of coming events.
- 320. You and I are bound together
on a journey...
- 321. that will twist the very fabric of nature.
- 322. But beneath your mask of logic,
I sense a fragility.
- 323. That worries me.
- 324. Steel your mind, Holmes.
- 325. I need you.
- 326. You've come a long way down
from the House of Lords.
- 327. - And I will rise again.
- Bon voyage.
- 328. Pay attention.
- 329. Three more will die, and there is
nothing you can do to save them.
- 330. You must accept
that this is beyond your control...
- 331. or, by the time you realize you
made all of this possible...
- 332. it'll be the last sane thought
in your head.
- 333. What did he want?
- 334. Not sure.
- 335. But I don't think you're needed, Father.
Not for this one.
- 336. Lord Henry Blackwood...
- 337. you are sentenced to death
for the practice of black magic...
- 338. the unholy murder of five
innocent young women...
- 339. and the attempted murder of a sixth.
- 340. Do you have any final words?
- 341. Death...
- 342. is only the beginning.
- 343. Forever and ever. Amen.
- 344. That is the end of Lord Blackwood.
- 345. London's so bleak this time of year.
- 346. Not that I'm pining for New Jersey.
- 347. I much prefer to travel in the winter.
- 348. Here, I brought you these,
all the way from Syria.
- 349. I found these exquisite dates in Jordan...
- 350. and your favorite...
- 351. olives from the Cyclades.
- 352. Thought we might have a little tea party.
- 353. And while I was setting the table,
I found this:
- 354. A file with my name on it.
- 355. "Theft of Velázquez portrait
from king of Spain."
- 356. "Missing naval documents lead
to resignation of Bulgarian prime minister."
- 357. "Scandalous affair ends engagement of...
- 358. Hapsburg prince
to Romanov princess."
- 359. I was simply studying your methods...
- 360. should the authorities
ask me to hunt you down.
- 361. Ah.
- 362. But I don't see my name
in any of these articles.
- 363. But your signature was clear.
- 364. Is that the maharajah's
- 365. Or just another souvenir?
- 366. Let's not dwell on the past.
- 367. Shall we?
- 368. By the looks of things,
you're between jobs.
- 369. And you between husbands.
How much did you get for the ring?
- 370. He was boring and jealous,
and he snored.
- 371. I'm Irene Adler again.
- 372. Thank you.
- 373. I need your help.
- 374. I need you to find someone.
- 375. Why are you always so suspicious?
- 376. Shall I answer chronologically
- 377. Careful not to cut yourself
on this lethal envelope.
- 378. I think you'll find all the information
you need inside.
- 379. Who are you working for?
- 380. So I'll have to find out the hard way?
- 381. Keep your money.
I didn't say I'll take the case.
- 382. Well, consider it a wager that you will.
- 383. Do you remember The Grand?
- 384. They gave me our old room.
- 385. Hold the door.
- 386. Thanks, doctor.
- 387. Ma'am.
- 388. - He'll do it.
- Well done, Miss Adler.
- 389. That's precisely why I hired you.
- 390. I wager he'll have our man
within the next 24 hours.
- 391. He'd better.
- 392. Reordan is the key
to what Blackwood was doing.
- 393. He's essential to my plan.
- 394. Get off out of it.
- 395. What you doing?
Can't you see where you're going?
- 396. - You scalp diver.
- Get off out of it.
- 397. A little rifle range
would go a long way, sir...
- 398. rubbing the calluses
off these German bands.
- 399. God save the queen.
- 400. God save the queen, sir.
- 401. Get off out of it.
- 402. Look at you.
- 403. Why is the only woman
you've cared about a criminal?
- 404. Are you a masochist?
- 405. - Allow me to explain.
- Allow me.
- 406. She's the only adversary
who ever outsmarted you. Twice.
- 407. Made a proper idiot out of you.
- 408. - Right, you've had your fun.
- What's she after, anyway?
- 409. - It's time to press on.
- What could she possibly need?
- 410. It doesn't matter.
- 411. An alibi? A beard? A human canoe.
- 412. She could sit on your back
and paddle you up the Thames.
- 413. That's of no consequence to you, is it?
- 414. We've done our last case together.
- 415. I've already read it.
- 416. Missing person:
- 417. Luke Reordan, 4 foot 10,
red hair, no front teeth.
- 418. Case solved.
- 419. You're obviously not her type.
She likes ginger dwarves.
- 420. - Midget.
- So you agree?
- 421. No, I don't agree.
- 422. It's more than technicality, you see.
- 423. You're misrepresenting the dimensions
of foreshortened peoples.
- 424. - I've said too much. I've upset you.
- No, I am simply stating that one has...
- 425. What were you doing?
- 426. - Will you allow me to explain?
- I wish you would.
- 427. - Holmes. What are you doing?
- 428. - Are you wearing a false...?
- False nose? No.
- 429. - Tell me that that wasn't...
- That wasn't.
- 430. Holmes. Where are you going?
- 431. Watson.
- 432. Watson.
- 433. Got some flowers for you, sweetheart.
Cut you a deal because you're so pretty.
- 434. Oh. My lucky day.
- 435. Hello, gorgeous.
You got something for me?
- 436. Don't move.
- 437. Now, what have we got here?
- 438. It's...
- 439. Thank you.
- 440. That's the Irene I know.
- 441. Good boy.
- 442. This man intrigues me, Watson.
He's got Adler on edge.
- 443. - Which is no mean feat.
- She's intimidated.
- 444. She's scared of him.
- 445. Yet she works for him.
- 446. - Right.
- It's nothing to do with me...
- 447. but I advise you leave the case alone.
- 448. Well, I may not have a choice.
- 449. After all, I may be paying the rent
on my own soon, thanks to you.
- 450. - Get that out of my face.
- It's not. It's in my hand.
- 451. Get what's in your hand out of my face.
- 452. - Mr. Holmes?
- 453. Sir, Inspector Lestrade asks
that you come with me at once.
- 454. What's he done now,
lost his way to Scotland Yard?
- 455. Watson, grab a compass.
"You" means "us."
- 456. No, "you" means you.
- 457. It's Lord Blackwood, sir. He, uh...
- 458. Well...
- 459. it appears he's come back
from the grave, sir.
- 460. - Most engaging.
- Very clever.
- 461. I pronounced the man dead myself.
- 462. What are the facts?
- 463. Groundskeeper saw him walking
through the graveyard this morning.
- 464. I'll leave this in your capable hands.
- 465. - I have an appointment with Mary.
- It's not my reputation that's at stake here.
- 466. Don't try that.
- 467. - The newspapers got wind of it?
- That's what we're trying to avoid.
- 468. Certainly.
- 469. What's the major concern?
- 470. Panic. Sheer bloody panic, sir.
- 471. - Indeed.
- You're not taking this seriously, are you?
- 472. Yes, as you should.
- 473. It's a matter of professional integrity.
- 474. No girl wants to marry a doctor
who can't tell if a man's dead or not.
- 475. Who do you think won the match,
- 476. - Sir?
- The rugby match.
- 477. Your boys have done a magnificent job
obliterating any potential evidence.
- 478. Yes. But at least they never miss
an opportunity to miss an opportunity.
- 479. You took your time, Holmes.
- 480. "And on the third day"...
- 481. These slabs are half a ton each
if they're a pound...
- 482. and they're smashed open
from the inside.
- 483. Lestrade, what of the coffin?
- 484. - We are in the process of bringing it up.
- I see.
- 485. Hm. Right. At what stage of the process?
- 486. Anyhow, where's our witness?
- 487. He's over there.
- 488. And apparently, he is cata...
- 489. Cat...
- 490. Catatonic, sir.
- 491. - He's not feeling very well.
- 492. If you lot don't stop behaving like quivering
milkmaids, you're on double-time.
- 493. Now, you get down there
and you bring that coffin up now.
- 494. Good day, sir.
- 495. Hello.
- 496. It's all right.
- 497. I'm a doctor.
- 498. The man's in shock.
He may need a few moments.
- 499. The witness stated that he saw
Lord Blackwood rise from the grave.
- 500. Well?
- 501. - Well?
- You pronounced him dead.
- 502. He had no pulse.
- 503. Ready.
- 504. Down.
- 505. Good Lord.
- 506. That's not Blackwood.
- 507. Well, now we have a firm grasp
of the obvious.
- 508. Time of death?
- 509. Diptera is...
- 510. approximately...
- 511. two thirds of an inch
which would put the time of death...
- 512. at between 10 and 12 hours ago.
- 513. May I borrow your pen?
- 514. - Adler's dwarf.
- 515. I know what I saw.
- 516. It was Blackwood.
- 517. As clear as I see you.
- 518. And when the dead walk...
- 519. the living will fill these coffins.
- 520. Well, um...
- 521. Right.
Put the lid on and clean this lot up.
- 522. You really believe he was resurrected?
- 523. The question is not if, but how.
- 524. - The game's afoot.
- Follow your spirit...
- 525. And upon this charge, cry:
- 526. "God for Harry, England and St. George."
- 527. There you are.
- 528. Why that certain chips stall,
I don't understand.
- 529. There's a particular beer in their batter.
A northern stout, to be exact.
- 530. You know, Holmes,
I've seen things in war I don't understand.
- 531. I once met a man
who predicted his own death...
- 532. right down to the number
and the placement...
- 533. of the bullets that killed him.
- 534. You have to admit, Holmes...
- 535. that a supernatural explanation
to this case...
- 536. is theoretically possible.
- 537. Well, agreed, but it's a huge mistake
to theorize before one has data.
- 538. Inevitably one begins to twist facts
to suit theories...
- 539. instead of theories to suit facts.
- 540. That said, I believe Adler's midget
is the key to this.
- 541. Hm.
- 542. Right. Scratches around
the keyhole where the watch was wound.
- 543. - What does that tell you?
- The man was likely a drunk.
- 544. Every time he wound the watch
his hand would slip, hence the scratches.
- 545. Very good, Watson.
- 546. You've developed considerable
deductive powers of your own. Hm.
- 547. Let's see now, there are several
sets of initials scored...
- 548. - Pawnbrokers' marks.
- 549. Most recent of which are "M.H."
M.H. M.H. Is for?
- 550. - Maddison and Haig.
- Maddison and Haig.
- 551. They should be able to
give us an address.
- 552. What a coincidence.
- 553. There's one thing you've
failed to deduce from the watch.
- 554. Really? I think not.
- 555. The time. I have to get back, Holmes.
- 556. Taking tea with the in-laws.
- 557. - Reckon your future, sir?
- Absolutely not.
- 558. - No, thank you.
- You need to hear what I have to tell.
- 559. We have no need of your lucky heather,
- 560. Even if it's to do with Mary?
- 561. Oh. Oh.
- 562. I see two men. Brothers.
- 563. Not in blood, but in bond.
- 564. What of Mary?
- 565. M for Mary, for marriage.
Oh, you will be married.
- 566. Go on.
- 567. I see patterned tablecloths...
- 568. and, oh, china figurines...
- 569. and, oh, lace doilies.
- 570. Doilies.
- 571. Lace doilies? Holmes.
- 572. Does your depravity know no bounds?
- 573. - No.
- Oh, she turns to fat...
- 574. and, oh, she has a beard and...
- 575. - What of the warts?
- She's covered in warts.
- 576. - Enough.
- Are they extensive?
- 577. Please, enough.
- 578. It's the most apt prediction
Flora has made in years.
- 579. And precisely the reason
you can't find a suitable ring.
- 580. Do you have my money?
- 581. You are terrified of a life
without the thrill of the macabre.
- 582. - Do you have my cut from the fight?
- Admit it.
- 583. - Give me my money! Holmes.
- Admit it!
- 584. I see.
- 585. Thank you.
- 586. Well, you've got your ring and
I've got my address for the ginger midget.
- 587. - Should be just there.
- I think she'll really like this.
- 588. And I have some change in my pocket.
- 589. - Shall I look after it for you?
- No, no.
- 590. - Don't give it away here.
- 591. I have to go see Mary.
- 592. Give her my best.
- 593. And her family, as well.
- 594. It does make a considerable
difference to me...
- 595. having someone with me
on whom I can thoroughly rely.
- 596. Well, you can rely on me
for exactly 10 minutes.
- 597. He clearly felt something
was coming to get him.
- 598. Something did.
- 599. Irene Adler was here.
- 600. Either that or the ginger midget
wore the same Parisian perfume.
- 601. Ah. Putrefaction.
- 602. Ammonium sulfate, among other aromas.
- 603. Phosphorous.
- 604. Formaldehyde.
- 605. It looks like...
- 606. he was attempting to combine...
- 607. some kind of sorcery
and scientific formula.
- 608. More importantly...
- 609. let's see what he was
trying to dispose of.
- 610. - Potassium, magnesium.
- Sultaphytic acid.
- 611. It'll suck the iron right out of the ink
as long as it's not too burnt.
- 612. Peculiar.
- 613. Hydrated rhododendron.
- 614. - Holmes.
- 615. Look at the crest.
- 616. Reordan was working with Blackwood.
- 617. Of course he was.
- 618. The question is, to what end.
- 619. Whatever he was working on,
he clearly succeeded.
- 620. How so?
- 621. Otherwise, he'd still be alive.
- 622. Which is why Miss Adler
is so desperate to find him.
- 623. Yes.
- 624. There is one odor
I can't quite put my finger on.
- 625. - Mm?
- Is it candy floss? Molasses?
- 626. Maple syrup?
- 627. Barley sugar.
- 628. Toffee apple.
- 629. Let me guess.
- 630. Judging by your arsonist tool kit...
- 631. you're here to burn down the building
and extinguish all evidence therein.
- 632. Just one minute, boys.
- 633. Oh, Dredger.
- 634. Meat...
- 635. or potatoes?
- 636. My 10 minutes are up.
- 637. You all right?
- 638. Holmes...
- 639. what is that?
- 640. Holmes!
- 641. Watson...
- 642. what have you done?
- 643. I haven't slept all night.
- 644. Not a wink.
- 645. Why I ever believed...
- 646. that I would get to have tea
with Mary's parents is beyond me...
- 647. - having been talked into going with you.
- We were set upon. It was self-defense.
- 648. I've been reviewing my notes
on our exploits over the last seven months.
- 649. Would you like to know my conclusion?
- 650. - I am psychologically disturbed.
- How so?
- 651. Why else would I continually be
led into situations...
- 652. where you deliberately withhold
your plans from me? Why else?
- 653. You've never complained
about my methods before.
- 654. - I'm not complaining.
- What do you call this?
- 655. How am I complaining? I never complain.
- 656. Do I complain about you practicing
the violin in the morning...
- 657. or your mess, your lack of hygiene,
or the fact that you steal my clothes?
- 658. We have a barter system.
- 659. Do I complain
about you setting fire to my rooms?
- 660. - Our rooms.
- The rooms.
- 661. When do I complain
that you experiment on my dog?
- 662. - Our dog.
- On the dog.
- 663. Gladstone is our dog.
- 664. Where I do take issue is your campaign
to sabotage my relationship with Mary.
- 665. I understand.
- 666. - Do you?
- I do.
- 667. - I don't think you do.
- You're overtired.
- 668. - Yes.
- You're feeling sensitive.
- 669. I'm not sensitive.
- 670. What you need is a rest.
- 671. My brother, Mycroft,
has a small estate near Chichester.
- 672. Beautiful grounds. There's a folly.
We can throw a lamb on the spit.
- 673. We? Holmes, if I were to go to the country,
it would be with my future wife.
- 674. - Well, certainly, if we must...
- No, not you. Mary and I.
- 675. - You are not...
- What, invited?
- 676. Why would I not be invited
to my brother's country home?
- 677. Now you're not making any sense.
- 678. You're not human.
- 679. John Watson?
- 680. Yes.
- 681. Your bail's been posted.
- 682. Mary.
- 683. Just Watson.
- 684. I hope you get bail by breakfast,
because the boys are getting hungry.
- 685. Step lively.
- 686. Back off. Back off.
- 687. To which the barman says,
"May I push in your stool?"
- 688. Right, you, you're out.
- 689. Until next time, Big Joe.
- 690. Always a pleasure, Mr. Holmes.
- 691. Thank heaven you're here.
I'd almost run out ofjokes.
- 692. In another life,
you'd have made an excellent criminal.
- 693. And you, sir, an excellent policeman.
Tomski, thank you.
- 694. Now, please tell me you have answers.
- 695. All in good time, Lestrade.
- 696. "All in good time"? Is this some parlor game
where we guess what you're thinking?
- 697. I've got a public in frenzy out there.
If you don't fill me in...
- 698. I'll have you in there playing Victoria
and Albert quicker than a bookie's runner.
- 699. Now, clean up
and make yourself presentable.
- 700. For whom?
- 701. Friends in high places.
They're the ones who bailed you out.
- 702. I'm terribly sorry
to inconvenience you, sir...
- 703. but I'm gonna have to put this on you.
- 704. Mr. Holmes,
apologies for summoning you like this.
- 705. I'm sure it's quite a mystery
as to where you are and who I am.
- 706. As to where I am...
- 707. I was, admittedly, Ost for a moment
between Charing Cross and Holborn.
- 708. But I was saved by the bread shop
on Saffron Hill...
- 709. the only baker to use a certain
French glaze on their loaves...
- 710. a Brittany sage.
- 711. The carriage forked left, then right,
a telltale bump over the Fleet Conduit.
- 712. And as to who you are, that took every
ounce of my not inconsiderable experience.
- 713. The letters on your desk are addressed
to Sir Thomas Rotheram.
- 714. Lord Chief Justice,
that'd be your official title.
- 715. Who you really are is, of course,
another matter entirely.
- 716. Judging by the sacred ox on your ring...
- 717. you're the head of
the Temple of the Four Orders...
- 718. in whose headquarters we now sit...
- 719. on the northwest corner
of St. James's Square, I think.
- 720. As to the mystery, the only mystery is
why you bothered to blindfold me at all.
- 721. Yes, well, standard procedure,
- 722. I daresay we have the right man,
- 723. Sherlock Holmes,
Ambassador Standish from America...
- 724. and Lord Coward, the home secretary.
- 725. I suppose you already have some notion
as to the practices of our order.
- 726. Yes. Um...
- 727. They're practically interesting.
- 728. Be as skeptical as you like.
- 729. But our secret systems have steered
the world towards good for centuries.
- 730. The danger is they can also be used
for more nefarious purposes.
- 731. What some call the dark arts,
or practical magic.
- 732. We know
you don't believe in magic, Mr. Holmes.
- 733. We don't expect you to share our faith...
- 734. merely our fears.
- 735. Fear is the more infectious condition.
- 736. In this instance...
- 737. fear of your own child.
- 738. Blackwood is your son.
- 739. You have the same irises,
a rare dark green...
- 740. with diamond-shaped hazel flecks...
- 741. together with identical outer ears, which
are only passed down through bloodline...
- 742. which makes you either brothers...
- 743. or, in this case, more likely,
father and son.
- 744. Very few people
are privy to that information...
- 745. and we want to keep it that way.
- 746. He was conceived
during one of our rituals.
- 747. His mother wasn't my wife...
- 748. but she shared our beliefs.
- 749. She was a powerful practitioner...
- 750. though not enough
to survive giving birth to him.
- 751. Death followed him wherever he went.
- 752. Those five girls were not the first
to be butchered.
- 753. He killed many more,
using them to enhance his powers.
- 754. No one could prove anything,
of course, but we all knew.
- 755. The boy was a curse.
- 756. We've done our best to stop him,
but it's not enough.
- 757. His power grows daily.
- 758. His resurrection is evidence of that.
- 759. But what he does next
will be more dangerous.
- 760. His secret lies in the book
of spells. This is the source of his power.
- 761. He's gonna raise a force
that will alter the course of the world.
- 762. We want you to find him
and stop him before he does.
- 763. We'll give you any assistance
that we can.
- 764. As home secretary, I have considerable
influence over the police.
- 765. Hm, yes.
- 766. So...
- 767. The benefit of being
a consulting detective...
- 768. is that I can pick and choose
- 769. So consider it done, I'll stop him.
- 770. But not for you.
- 771. And certainly not for a price.
- 772. - I do have a parting query, Sir Thomas.
- What is that?
- 773. If the rest of his family's dead,
how long do you expect to survive?
- 774. Food for thought.
- 775. Well, perhaps you'll have better luck
- 776. Margaux '58. A comet vintage.
- 777. How fascinating that an astronomical event
can affect the quality...
- 778. How is it going with our case
you refuse to take?
- 779. Of the wine.
- 780. Oh, I've hit a dead end, literally.
- 781. I found your man.
- 782. He's buried in Blackwood's tomb.
- 783. If you still need him.
- 784. Oh, dear.
- 785. Hope my client
doesn't come looking for a refund.
- 786. He's a professor, isn't he?
- 787. Couldn't see his face,
but! Spotted chalk on his lapel.
- 788. I've never known a professor to carry a gun,
and on such a clever contraption.
- 789. Eye patch, nice touch.
- 790. So case closed...
- 791. which makes this a social visit.
- 792. No, it's a "you're in over your head,
- 793. Whoever killed Reordan
was covering their tracks...
- 794. which makes you the next loose end
to be snipped.
- 795. Let it breathe.
- 796. I've never been in over my head.
- 797. Leave now. Disappear.
You're good at that.
- 798. Or stay and volunteer
for protective custody.
- 799. If I'm in danger, so are you.
- 800. Come with me.
- 801. What if we trusted each other?
- 802. Hm?
- 803. You're not listening.
- 804. I'm taking you to either the railway station
or the police station.
- 805. So...
- 806. - Which is it to be?
- 807. You decide.
- 808. - Which will it be?
- 809. I told you to let it breathe.
- 810. Can you taste the comet?
- 811. Why couldn't you just
come away with me?
- 812. Never.
- 813. Madam, I need you to remain calm
and trust me, I'm a professional.
- 814. But beneath this pillow
lies the key to my release.
- 815. - She misinterpreted my intention entire! Y.
- Naturally, sir.
- 816. That's why I find this modern
religious fervor so troubling.
- 817. - No latitude for misunderstanding.
- Faith runs right over reason, sir.
- 818. Indeed. And chambermaids
were once such a liberal breed.
- 819. My wife's a chambermaid, sir.
- 820. Anyhow, a good thing she was offended,
or we may never have found you.
- 821. The inspector's been over to Baker Street
himself this morning, sir.
- 822. - Just joking about the wife, sir.
- 823. We've checked everything, sir.
- 824. No sign of a break-in
and the butler didn't hear a thing.
- 825. So body in the bathtub...
- 826. his eyes were wide open,
and the only thing missing was...
- 827. his ring, sir.
- 828. Why did you drain the water?
- 829. - Out of common decency.
- Crime is common, logic is rare.
- 830. The decent thing to do is to catch the killer,
not provide comfort for the corpse.
- 831. What is that?
- 832. - Jasmine bath salts, sir.
- 833. Probably comes from a larger container.
It'll either be in the pantry...
- 834. high up where it's warm and dry,
or in a linen cupboard with a vent.
- 835. Constable, you could do worse...
- 836. than to check the ground under
the rear windows for any footprints.
- 837. Data, data, data.
I cannot make bricks without clay.
- 838. Mr. Holmes?
- 839. Was it in the cupboard or the pantry?
- 840. It was in the pantry, sir.
- 841. I don't know what to make of this.
- 842. Excellent work.
- 843. Adieu.
- 844. What's the meaning of this, Coward?
Why have you called this meeting?
- 845. Sir Thomas is dead.
- 846. I nominate Lord Blackwood
as head of the order.
- 847. Have you lost your mind?
- 848. You know damn well
what he's capable of.
- 849. Of course he does.
- 850. That's why we're here.
- 851. That's why we're all here.
- 852. My powers and my assets
were given to me for one purpose.
- 853. A magnificent but simple purpose.
- 854. To create a new future.
- 855. A future ruled...
- 856. by us.
- 857. Tomorrow at noon, we take the first step
towards a new chapter in our history.
- 858. Magic will lead the way.
- 859. Once the people of England
see our newfound power...
- 860. they'll bow down in fear.
- 861. Across the Atlantic
lies a colony that was once ours.
- 862. It will be again.
- 863. The Civil War has made them weak.
- 864. Their government is as corrupt
and as ineffective as ours...
- 865. so we'll take it back.
- 866. We will remake the world...
- 867. create the future.
- 868. These men are with me, Standish...
- 869. but...
- 870. are you?
- 871. No, sir. I am not.
- 872. These powers that you're playing with...
- 873. no man can control.
- 874. Well, gentlemen...
- 875. someone has to stop him,
even if you won't.
- 876. Oh, I wouldn't do that if I were you.
- 877. Save me!
- 878. Gentlemen...
- 879. don't be afraid.
- 880. As you can see...
- 881. we are protected.
- 882. Come, drink your allegiance here.
- 883. You control the police, now use them.
- 884. Didn't know you were here.
- 885. Since this room is no longer yours,
do you mind if I utilize it?
- 886. Be my guest.
- 887. - In here, chaps.
- Where would you like me...
- 888. - to put him, sir?
- Anywhere is fine.
- 889. - Who is he?
- The man who tried to kill you at Reordan's.
- 890. His neck didn't survive the impact
of Dredger landing on him.
- 891. Yes.
- 892. Thanks for that, by the way.
- 893. There is consolation in the knowledge that
he could be of service to his fellow man.
- 894. Elbows and arms stained with blood,
but it's older than his own injuries.
- 895. None of it human.
- 896. He's not a butcher, let me see.
- 897. Yellow flame, green bursts.
- 898. An industrial worker.
- 899. Pff. Coal.
- 900. River silt.
- 901. The slag on his trousers
should put him squarely in...
- 902. - Nine Elms.
- Sorry, what?
- 903. The area you're looking for is Nine Elms.
- 904. I wondered.
- 905. Do you remember where I put
the Lords Register of members' interests?
- 906. It's on the stepladder.
- 907. Well, Blackwood's had his hand in just about
everything that's corrosive to the spirit.
- 908. Woolwich Arsenal.
Limehouse Chemical Works.
- 909. It'll probably be a factory by the river.
- 910. What's that?
- 911. Never mind.
- 912. You don't know where
my rugby ball went, do you?
- 913. No, not a clue.
- 914. Queenshithe Slaughterhouse.
- 915. Nine Elms.
- 916. A factory by the river.
- 917. Well done. That should lead us
to Blackwood, dead or alive.
- 918. Not us.
- 919. You.
- 920. Yes.
- 921. Just a figure of speech, old boy.
- 922. He's left it there on purpose.
- 923. More coal, doctor.
- 924. That's a good one. He's such a tit.
- 925. Oh, God. Yeah.
- 926. Glad to see you two
are working hard.
- 927. And I thought we were
trying to be discreet.
- 928. You would not last one day in the navy.
- 929. Are you sure there isn't an alternative
means of water transportation than that?
- 930. I guarantee you nobody knows
London's waterways better.
- 931. - Tanner's practically a fish himself.
- He certainly drinks like one.
- 932. Oh, you found a sense of humor, doctor.
- 933. If only just a sense.
- 934. I better take over, there.
Bit tricky down here.
- 935. Come on, come on.
- 936. Look familiar?
- 937. All that's missing is a ginger midget.
- 938. They cleared something away from here
not minutes ago.
- 939. Like what?
- 940. Not sure. Something mechanical.
- 941. Holmes.
- 942. Look at this.
- 943. - 1:18.
- Chapter and verse.
- 944. Revelations 1:18.
"I am he that liveth, and was dead."
- 945. "And behold, I'm alive for evermore."
- 946. I warned you, Holmes, to accept
that this was beyond your control...
- 947. beyond what your rational mind
- 948. - What a busy afterlife you're having.
- I want you to bear witness.
- 949. Tomorrow, at midday,
the world as you know it will end.
- 950. Show me your face,
it'll be the end of your world.
- 951. Save your bullets, Watson.
- 952. A gift for you.
- 953. What was that about saving bullets?
- 954. She followed you here, Holmes.
- 955. You led your lamb to slaughter.
- 956. Holmes.
- 957. This game was designed to hurt.
- 958. Watson!
- 959. It's warm in here, Watson.
- 960. In over your head yet, darling?
- 961. Hold on there.
- 962. Let me take your weight.
- 963. Give us a leg up, old boy.
- 964. These German locks
always give me trouble.
- 965. It's a band saw.
- 966. No matter, we have plenty of time.
- 967. Holmes.
- 968. - It's not working.
- Keep calm.
- 969. Holmes, hurry up.
- 970. Don't get excited. Turn off that valve.
- 971. And we'll bounce in three, two...
- 972. one.
- 973. Thank you.
- 974. I'm gonna get after Blackwood.
- 975. Thank you.
- 976. We should help the doctor.
- 977. Holmes!
- 978. Mr. Holmes.
- 979. Sir.
- 980. Mr. Holmes.
- 981. Mr. Holmes, we have an order
for your arrest, sir.
- 982. Sir!
- 983. Lord Coward has issued a warrant
for your arrest, sir.
- 984. Now, Watson's alive.
- 985. Just get out of here, sir. Go, sir, go.
- 986. Will the train be departing on time?
- 987. The train's been delayed, madam.
- 988. Shouldn't be long now, though.
- 989. The train will depart when I tell it to.
- 990. And you will leave my employment
when I allow you to.
- 991. I fulfilled my contract.
- 992. I found Reordan.
- 993. He's in Scotland Yard's mortuary.
- 994. So that's me, finished.
- 995. Your job was to manipulate Holmes'
feelings for you...
- 996. not succumb to them.
- 997. You have fulfilled nothing.
- 998. I want what Reordan was making
- 999. Finish the job or the next dead body...
- 1000. will be Sherlock Holmes.
- 1001. The surgeon should be along shortly.
- 1002. He should be able to rest now.
- 1003. Excuse me.
- 1004. Is that the best you can do?
- 1005. Yes, for now.
- 1006. I must attend to my other patients.
- 1007. Doctor.
- 1008. Doctor.
- 1009. Please.
- 1010. I know that you care for him
as much as I do.
- 1011. This is not your responsibility,
it was his choice.
- 1012. He'd say that it was worth the wounds.
- 1013. Solve this.
- 1014. Whatever it takes.
- 1015. This is beyond your control.
- 1016. Sheer bloody panic, sir. Panic.
- 1017. - It's Lord Blackwood, sir.
- I've never been in over my head.
- 1018. ! T's nothing to do with me,
but I advise you leave the case alone.
- 1019. Solve this.
Are you, Holmes?
- 1020. Accept that this was beyond your control.
- 1021. Tomorrow, at midday, the world will end.
! 've got a public in frenzy.
- 1022. Holmes!
- 1023. Widen your gaze.
- 1024. You must widen your gaze.
Widen your gaze.
- 1025. You and I are bound together on a journey
that will twist the very fabric of nature.
- 1026. Steel your mind, Ho! Mes.
Widen your gaze.
- 1027. He's gonna raise a force
that wi! I alter the world.
- 1028. His power grows daily.
This is the source of his power.
- 1029. I need you.
- 1030. His secret lies in the book of spells.
- 1031. Three more will die...
- 1032. and there is nothing you can do
to save them.
- 1033. We know you don't believe in magic.
- 1034. Reordan was working with Blackwood.
- 1035. Is that better?
- 1036. He clearly felt something
was coming to get him.
- 1037. His eyes were wide open
and the only thing missing was his ring.
- 1038. Give up, Holmes.
- 1039. This is a riddle you cannot solve.
- 1040. Good morning.
- 1041. Now, you need to work.
- 1042. Familiar artwork.
- 1043. You look gorgeous.
- 1044. Somehow I knew you wouldn't leave.
- 1045. You made the front page.
- 1046. Only a name and no picture.
- 1047. So it looks like you'll be needing to
work outside the law now...
- 1048. and that's my area of expertise.
- 1049. I feel safer already.
- 1050. You seem to be making a rapid recovery.
- 1051. Yes.
- 1052. Took the shrapnel out myself.
- 1053. Mary said I had a lousy doctor.
- 1054. Well, I'm...
- 1055. I'm just so...
- 1056. very glad that you're...
- 1057. well...
- 1058. with us.
- 1059. Now that you're sitting comfortably,
I shall begin.
- 1060. My initial approach was far too narrow.
- 1061. When Blackwood invited me
to Pentonville Prison...
- 1062. he suggested I widen my gaze
and, at minimum, I have done just that.
- 1063. In fact, I may well have reconciled
thousands of years of theological disparity.
- 1064. But that's for another time.
- 1065. Blackwood's method is based on
a ritualistic mystical system...
- 1066. that's been employed by the
Temple of the Four Orders for centuries.
- 1067. To fully understand the system,
to get inside it...
- 1068. I reenacted the ceremony
we interrupted at the crypt...
- 1069. with a few enhancements of my own.
- 1070. My journey took me somewhat further down
the rabbit hole than I had intended...
- 1071. and though I dirtied my fluffy white tail,
I have emerged enlightened.
- 1072. The fraternity who silently control
- 1073. share the belief with the kings,
pharaohs and emperors of old...
- 1074. that the sphinx was a door
to another dimension...
- 1075. a gateway to immeasurable power.
- 1076. It's made up of four parts:
The foot of a lion, the tail of an ox...
- 1077. the wings of an eagle,
and the head of a man.
- 1078. In Sir Thomas's secret chamber,
I found the bone of an ox...
- 1079. the tooth of a lion, the feather of an eagle
and hair of a man.
- 1080. Map.
- 1081. The points of the star
represent the five murdered girls...
- 1082. but the cross
is what we're now interested in.
- 1083. It's a widely held belief...
- 1084. that within the architecture
of the great cities...
- 1085. are coded references to this system.
- 1086. Since he rose from the grave,
Blackwood has killed three men...
- 1087. each committed at a location
that has a connection with the temple...
- 1088. therefore the system.
- 1089. Reordan, the ginger midget,
- 1090. We found his body here.
- 1091. Sir Thomas, master of the temple,
wore the ox ring.
- 1092. He died here.
- 1093. Standish, ambassador to America...
- 1094. where the eagle has been
the national emblem for over 100 years.
- 1095. The headquarters of the Temple
of the Four Orders where he died...
- 1096. is here.
- 1097. Correspondingly, the map will tell us
the location of Blackwood's final act.
- 1098. So we have man, the ox, eagle.
- 1099. Only the lion remaining.
- 1100. Right here.
- 1101. Parliament.
- 1102. Right.
- 1103. You four stay here
and the rest of you come with me.
- 1104. - Get out of the way, you lowlifes!
- Right this way.
- 1105. Ladies first.
- 1106. Now.
- 1107. Follow these instructions.
- 1108. - Aren't you...?
- 1109. Hello, hello, hello.
- 1110. Did the devil turn up?
- 1111. Well...
- 1112. never mind.
- 1113. You got the next best thing.
- 1114. Beg your pardon, my Lord.
I know that it's unorthodox...
- 1115. but Mr. Holmes here...
- 1116. he's been making some
serious accusations about you...
- 1117. and the order.
- 1118. I see.
- 1119. Well, at least that solves the great mystery
as to how you became inspector.
- 1120. Excuse me, my Lord...
- 1121. but I've been wanting to do that
for a long time.
- 1122. Well, inspector, I have five minutes
before my next engagement...
- 1123. so why don't you regale me
with your stories of conspiracy?
- 1124. Thank you, Lestrade.
- 1125. My Lord.
- 1126. I'm curious, Coward. Did you assist
Blackwood in all the murders...
- 1127. or just the one I prevented?
- 1128. Very distinctive,
those handmade shoes of yours.
- 1129. But the price of quality
is often the unique imprint they leave.
- 1130. Nonetheless, I confess to being
- 1131. I could deduce very little
from my investigation.
- 1132. Fortunately,
there's nothing more stimulating...
- 1133. than a case where everything
goes against you.
- 1134. How many members of Parliament
do you intend to murder at noon today?
- 1135. Man, ox, eagle, lion.
- 1136. The lion is Parliament, isn't it?
- 1137. Very clever.
- 1138. But it's not murder, Mr. Holmes.
- 1139. It's mercy.
- 1140. We are giving the weak masses
a strong shepherd.
- 1141. Don't you see that it's for their own?
- 1142. No, but I don't care much what you think.
- 1143. I simply wanted to know the location
of Blackwood's ceremony...
- 1144. and you've given it to me.
- 1145. I've told you nothing.
- 1146. But your clothes say
infinitely more than you could ever hope.
- 1147. The mud on your boots
from where you've been walking.
- 1148. A touch of red brick dust on your knee
from where you've been kneeling.
- 1149. A small bandage on your thumb
from where you've been vowing.
- 1150. A faint aroma of excrement
from where you've been standing.
- 1151. You and Blackwood laid the final touches
to your ceremony...
- 1152. in the sewers beneath Parliament
less than an hour ago.
- 1153. Both houses meet today.
- 1154. The whole government will be present.
- 1155. It's a shame you made an enemy
out of Blackwood, Holmes.
- 1156. You would have made a valuable ally.
- 1157. How terrible is wisdom...
- 1158. when it brings no profit to the wise.
- 1159. We take power at noon.
- 1160. There isn't any time to waste then,
- 1161. I told you he'd be coming
out the top window.
- 1162. There isn't any way
he'd be coming over that terrace.
- 1163. Technically, that isn't the top window,
is it, sailor boy?
- 1164. - What is it?
- Well, it's the middle window.
- 1165. Anyway.
- 1166. You'll be pleased to know
Lestrade performed perfectly.
- 1167. In fact, I think he enjoyed it.
- 1168. I hope you know what you're doing.
- 1169. Here's the key.
- 1170. - You got all you needed from Coward?
- Yes, I smoked him out with relative ease.
- 1171. - Tanner?
- 1172. If you would, captain...
- 1173. take us under the bridge,
port side, 100 yards.
- 1174. Beyond that you'll find the tunnel
that leads us to the sewers.
- 1175. Right away, sir.
- 1176. The end is nigh.
- 1177. Blackwood's come back from hell
and laid a curse upon this land.
- 1178. He walks in every shadow
and every puff of smoke.
- 1179. Behold, he cometh with clouds...
- 1180. and every eye shall see him...
- 1181. and every soul shall wail
because of him.
- 1182. You cannot stop him!
No one can!
- 1183. Behold, Blackwood's magic revealed.
- 1184. What does it do?
It's a chemical weapon.
- 1185. The first of its kind.
- 1186. You deduced that how?
- 1187. From my pocket.
- 1188. I snipped this off a rather recumbent rat
at the slaughterhouse.
- 1189. Note the blue discoloration,
the faint smell of bitter almonds.
- 1190. - Telltale traces of cyanide.
- 1191. Shh.
- 1192. Now we know
what the ginger midget was working on.
- 1193. It'll revolutionize warfare.
- 1194. Yes, killing a lot of people.
- 1195. Now, it's seven minutes to noon.
What are we gonna do?
- 1196. Right. How many men
did you count on the...?
- 1197. She loves an entrance, your muse.
- 1198. Woman!
- 1199. Shoot him. Now, please.
- 1200. My lords.
- 1201. The time has come...
- 1202. for only those who believe to remain.
- 1203. Behold...
- 1204. Lord Blackwood.
- 1205. You seem surprised.
- 1206. I have returned from beyond the grave
to fulfill England's destiny...
- 1207. and extend the boundaries
of this great empire.
- 1208. Listen to the rabble outside.
- 1209. Listen...
- 1210. to the fear.
- 1211. I will use that as a weapon...
- 1212. to control them...
- 1213. and then the world.
- 1214. I've never seen anything like it.
Look at this.
- 1215. Specifically designed
to prevent us from disarming it.
- 1216. These appear to be designed
to receive a signal of some sort.
- 1217. Electromagnetic waves?
- 1218. When triggered, the electrodes...
- 1219. will send a charge
converting the chemical into gas.
- 1220. The gas will travel up that shaft
and filter through the venti! Ation system...
- 1221. that leads directly to Parliament.
- 1222. the most powerful men in the world
wi! I be choking on death.
- 1223. Blackwood must have some transmitter
that he can activate remotely.
- 1224. Three minutes, 10 seconds.
- 1225. I will create an empire
that will endure for millennia...
- 1226. indestructible...
- 1227. and eternal.
- 1228. Move it. Move it.
- 1229. We don't actually have to
disarm the device...
- 1230. we just have to remove the cylinders.
- 1231. Yes, except that they're welded in.
- 1232. What we need is a controlled explosion.
- 1233. We'll need a container to direct the blast.
My clay pipe should service that ambition.
- 1234. I rather wish you hadn't done that,
- 1235. On the 12th chime,
I will summon the dark powers.
- 1236. All those of you who are with me
shall be protected.
- 1237. All others...
- 1238. will perish.
- 1239. I need your pipe.
- 1240. Nut him!
- 1241. - Right.
- 1242. - Coat.
- Got it.
- 1243. The new order...
- 1244. begins now.
- 1245. Woman.
- 1246. What are you waiting for?
- 1247. That.
- 1248. Apprehend Lord Coward.
- 1249. - Can you manage?
- Course I can.
- 1250. Relax...
- 1251. I'm a doctor.
- 1252. Did you take a wrong turning
- 1253. We're safe now.
- 1254. Interesting assessment.
- 1255. Run off.
- 1256. I won't be chasing you anymore.
- 1257. Fare thee well.
- 1258. I don't want to run anymore.
- 1259. - I'll tell you everything.
- I wish you would.
- 1260. No!
- 1261. There was never any magic.
- 1262. Only conjuring tricks.
- 1263. The simplest involved
paying people off...
- 1264. like the guard who pretended
to be possessed outside your cell.
- 1265. Your reputation
and the inmates' fear did the rest.
- 1266. Others required
more elaborate preparations...
- 1267. like the sandstone slab
that covered your tomb.
- 1268. You had it broken before your burial,
then put back together using an adhesive.
- 1269. An ancient Egyptian recipe, I believe...
- 1270. a mixture of egg and honey...
- 1271. designed to be washed away
by the rain.
- 1272. Holmes!
- 1273. Arranging for your father
to drown in his own bathtub...
- 1274. required more modern science.
- 1275. Very clever of Reordan
to find a paralytic...
- 1276. that was activated by the combination
of copper and water...
- 1277. and was therefore undetectable
once the bath water was drained.
- 1278. That might've been a challenge for me...
- 1279. had he not also tested it
on some unfortunate amphibians.
- 1280. The death of Standish
was a real mystery...
- 1281. until you used the same compound
to blow up the wharf.
- 1282. An odorless, tasteless flammable liquid...
- 1283. yet it burned
with an unusual pinkish hue.
- 1284. Did Standish mistake it for rain
as he entered the temple?
- 1285. All it took was a spark.
- 1286. A simple rigged bullet in his gun.
- 1287. Ingenious.
- 1288. Like all great performers, you saved
your pièce de résistance for the end:
- 1289. A chemica! Weapon distil! Ed from cyanide
and refined in the bellies of swine.
- 1290. Had it worked...
- 1291. your followers in Parliament
would have watched unharmed...
- 1292. as their colleagues
were dying around them.
- 1293. They didn't know
you'd given them the antidote.
- 1294. Instead,
they would've believed it was magic...
- 1295. and that you'd harnessed
the ultimate power.
- 1296. And the world would've followed,
fear being the most powerful weapon of all.
- 1297. You'd better hope
that it's nothing more than superstition...
- 1298. as you performed
all the rituals perfectly.
- 1299. The devil is due a soul, I'd say.
- 1300. For God's sake, Holmes, cut me loose.
- 1301. First, the world will see you
for what you are. A fraud.
- 1302. Then you'll be hanged.
- 1303. Properly, this time.
- 1304. It's a long journey from here to the rope.
- 1305. I've never woken up in handcuffs before.
- 1306. I have.
- 1307. Naked.
- 1308. Storm's coming.
- 1309. Well, we've still got a moment.
- 1310. Moriarty.
- 1311. What?
- 1312. That's his name.
- 1313. And he is a professor.
- 1314. Everyone has a weak spot...
- 1315. and he found mine.
- 1316. Where was it, precisely?
- 1317. - Please don't underestimate him.
- 1318. He's just as brilliant as you are...
- 1319. and infinitely more devious.
- 1320. We'll see about that.
- 1321. You'll miss me, Sherlock.
- 1322. Sadly...
- 1323. yes.
- 1324. Just keep it under your hat.
- 1325. Afternoon, sir.
I put the notebooks in this one, sir.
- 1326. - Thank you.
- What's in these, John?
- 1327. Scribbles.
- 1328. - Scribbles?
- 1329. They're your adventures.
I'd like to read them.
- 1330. Come on, what's wrong?
- 1331. Do you think he's come to terms
with you leaving?
- 1332. Mary, look at the ring he's given us.
- 1333. Now, five minutes here
and we'll go home.
- 1334. Our home.
- 1335. Get up those stairs.
- 1336. Don't worry, dear.
- 1337. Suicide is not in his repertoire.
- 1338. He's far too fond of himself for that.
- 1339. Holmes.
- 1340. Oh. Good afternoon.
- 1341. I was trying to deduce the manner
in which Blackwood survived his execution.
- 1342. Clearing your good name, as it were.
- 1343. But it had a surprisingly
- 1344. and I was carried off in the arms
of Morpheus like a caterpillar in a cocoon.
- 1345. Good afternoon, dear.
- 1346. Get on with it, Holmes.
- 1347. Cleverly concealed in the hangman's knot
was a hook.
- 1348. Oh, dear, my legs have fallen asleep.
I should come down.
- 1349. John, shouldn't we help him down?
- 1350. No, no, no,
I hate to cut him off midstream.
- 1351. Carry on.
- 1352. Well, the executioner
attached it to a harness...
- 1353. allowing the weight to be
distributed around the waist...
- 1354. and the neck to remain intact.
- 1355. My Lord, I can't feel my cheeks.
Might we continue this at ground level?
- 1356. How did you manage it, Holmes?
- 1357. I managed it with braces,
belts and a coat hook.
- 1358. Please, my tongue is going,
I'll be of no use to you at all.
- 1359. - Worse things could happen.
- 1360. Yet none of this explains
Blackwood's lack of pulse.
- 1361. Right.
- 1362. Now, the medical mystery.
We must restore your reputation, Watson.
- 1363. There is a toxin refined from the nectar
of the rhododendron ponticum.
- 1364. ! t's infamous in the region of Turkey
bordering the Black Sea...
- 1365. for its ability to induce
an apparently mortal paralysis.
- 1366. Enough to mislead a medical mind
even as well-trained as your own.
- 1367. - It's known as...
- What's wrong with Gladstone?
- 1368. Mad honey disease.
- 1369. Oh, he's demonstrating
the very effect I've just described.
- 1370. He doesn't mind.
- 1371. Mary, don't worry, he's seen far worse.
- 1372. Mr. Holmes?
- 1373. Doctor. Miss Mary.
- 1374. Sir, Inspector Lestrade asks that
you come with me right away.
- 1375. - What is it is this time, Clarkie?
- It's one of our sergeants, sir.
- 1376. He went missing
the day you stopped Lord Blackwood.
- 1377. ! 'm afraid sewage workers
found his body just this morning, sir.
- 1378. We believe the sergeant
was our first man on the scene.
- 1379. Can I help you, officer?
- 1380. Shot in the head.
- 1381. Was it a small caliber bullet?
- 1382. Yes.
- 1383. Were there powder burns
on his eyebrows?
- 1384. Indeed, sir.
- 1385. Point blank range?
- 1386. Moriarty.
- 1387. Professor Moriarty.
- 1388. Oh, there's a good boy.
- 1389. Everything's gonna be fine.
- 1390. Where is Blackwood's device now?
- 1391. Secret Service have it, sir.
They've taken over the case.
- 1392. I'd wager there's a piece missing.
- 1393. So Moriarty was after
a piece of the machine...
- 1394. not the poison.
- 1395. There's nothing more elusive
than an obvious fact.
- 1396. The wire-free invention
was the game all along.
- 1397. And Adler was just the diversion.
- 1398. He knew! 'd chase her,
heaving the machine accessible.
- 1399. A technology of that kind
wou! D be worth an untold fortune.
- 1400. Imagine being able
to control any device...
- 1401. simply by sending a command
via radio waves.
- 1402. It's the future, Watson.
- 1403. I've loaded the last of your boxes, sir.
- 1404. - Well...
- 1405. - Gladstone.
- Stop him before he gets to the front door.
- 1406. Clarkie.
- 1407. Case reopened.
