WILL BE SPOILERS!
How do you guys think Sherlock Survived the fall? Post theories here.
I think that Molly had something to do with it :)
He had a tennis ball
I'm pretty much agreeing with everyone else here, HOWEVER i would also like to point out one thing! If you look carefully from the top of the building after sherlock has hit the ground, and before watson gets there, there is a smudge mark leading away from Sherlock's "body" - Deduction: That isn't sherlock at all on the floor. Sherlock either landed on someone, or on a pre meditated space, and was dragged away, after having been slightly injured (as a fall from that height would hurt no matter WHAT you landed on). To back this up (albeit slightly), is that when we see sherlock in the graveyard, he has a scar on his neck, which he didn't have at the beginning...
Also, there is still the fact that there is one of the assassins still trying to protect sherlock, as they want the code that moriarty gave him. One of the assassins looked a little bit like sherlock... coincidence? mebbes :)
I thought I was the only one who noticed the killer. He did look a bit like him and they did show more of him than other killers (Lestrade's one wan't even shown).
Maybe Sherlock was the one who fell and whose the body we see, but he somehow managed to survive the fall from the 3th floor without dying or being paralyzed. I mean, we see Sherlock fall. Maybe he's a ninja or something.
I guess we'll just have to wait for Steven "I hate Neira so much that whenever she get hooked on one of my shows I must stop filming it" Moffat and the rest of the team to start filming again. Until then, I have Hobbit to looks forward to.
Hell yeah the hobbit ^_^
Well, when "Sherlock" is being rolled away on the cart into the ambulance, it shows a split second of "Sherlock's" face, which if you notice (and many people on tumblr have), it isn't Sherlock it all. It's just some guy that none of us has seen before. There isn't even blood on his face.
But John looked at Sherlock and I don't think he'd fail to recognise his best friend.
Even so, John was in Shock. And he only saw him up close, while dizzy and disoriented, and while, if the theory above is correct, covered in blood. The blood could have easily been wiped away as they loaded him.
I didn't notice the killer that looked like him, but that would explain why the little girl screamed when she saw Sherlock
The guy on the bike who crashed into John after Sherlock fell was very suspicious. And there was a picture on tumblr where John had something in his ear, but I have no idea what it is. Maybe it wasn't meant to be anything... But maybe it is..... MY EMOTIONS. I can't control this ARGH Sherlock just hurry up already!
How the ambulance came and when the doctors took Sherlock around the corner into the hospital.... what happened in there? The audience for Sherlock's fall we're forcefully holding John back, not letting him get too close. I wonder.
There's also been the theory of the camera. This has been floating around on tumblr, and it isn't my idea, but basically, here's the gist of it:
Remember the camera that Sherlock found in his flat? The one that Moriarty had placed there somehow? There's one scene where Sherlock and John are talking and Sherlock's tapping away at his computer about something he's very intent on. The only time he stops typing is when he realizes John might not trust him, but once he's reassured that he is, he continues typing away. Then at the end of the scene, it shows a camera-view of Sherlock, showing that he's got it working and somehow is useful. This is a very looked-over part of the episode, but there's the theory that Sherlock used the camera on the roof with Moriarty, and somehow he got the camera to John after he fell off the roof. That's why Sherlock had been asking all those questions: the real Sherlock would have figured all of that out.
I've probably missed some things, but it's a good theory nonetheless.
Yeah, but I don't see how that would have saved him from dying because of the fall...
Sherlock talks to his homeless people team whatever they are, when asks for a moment. Then, insists that John keeps looking at him, from one precise point where he can only see a part of the scene. Then, John is hit by the bike, while the people work on Sherlock and don't let John get any further.
