Am I the only one not 100% convinced that was really Michael at the end?

So are the hidden security cameras at the brownstone totally gone?

& RE the twist at the end, didn't I hear someone say that the body was beaten severely? I'm asking because the linked review talked about the victim possibly bleeding out as CoD. As per usual, I should probably go back and watch it again.

You are not the only one. I'd be sad if it weren't him, though.

But I think this is either supposed to be
-a torture-from-beyond thing where sherlock and watson find out about a string of crimes already committed [or set in motion] that could only be solved with michael's help
-there's only one moriarty for a reason. nice try, michael, but this league is not yours, etc.

I was really surprised by the beating watson took! Michael seemed to be just a lot larger in that scene than I had ever noticed.

If this were ACD sherlock, a street urchin would have followed a bleeding man coming from sherlock's home.

Thanks to oh yeah! for posting this. I've had a busy week at work, and just got around to watching the episode.

So how exactly is Joan supposed to have beaten this guy to death? It's not entirely clear what the timeline is, but they spent all that time talking about her broken ribs, and she looked pretty beaten up.

If anyone is a candidate to kill Michael, it seems like Sherlock would be the obvious suspect, especially after Michael attacked Joan. Maybe the FBI is hoping to get Sherlock to confess, by accusing Joan?

But if either Joan or Sherlock committed a murder, presumably they would have much smarter ways to dispose of a body.

I can't wait to be done with this whole Michael storyline, so I hope the dead body is actually him.
