I had a thought today while I was driving to the gas station, back home to get my forgotten bank card, then back to the gas station before finally getting to my client’s home… What if Sherlock wasn’t the one sending the “wrong!” texts in A Study In Pink?
What if… Sherlock only sent ONE text. ONE text to DI Lestrade telling him “You know where to find me -SH”
WHAT IF? It was Moriarty who sent the “wrong!” texts?
Think about it: Moriarty already knew about Sherlock and was a fan of his and Moriarty likes to watch Sherlock work (so why wouldn’t he send a mass text to various media outlets saying “wrong” when DI Lestrade says that they have their best people on the case?)
What if The Great Game isn’t the first time we see Moriarty get Sherlock involved in the crimes he consults?
I love this theory. It would be something he would do, he so loves meddling in things.
I’ve always thought this! Despite how much Sherlock loves telling people they’re wrong, it seemed really out of character that someone who was too lazy to get his own phone from the coffee table would expend the energy to find the numbers of everyone at the press conference and text all of them just to show off.
