I don't believe for one second that Irene is dead. More like she faked her death and fooled Sherlock, the only person who could do such a thing to Sherlock. This gives me hope. BUT ALL THE DUMB PEOPLE IN THE ELEMENTRY TAG ON TUMBLR SAYING THEY'RE GOING TO QUIT THE SHOW BECAUSE IRENE IS DEAD, OBVIOUSLY DON'T KNOW SHERLOCK HOLMES, LIKE AT ALL.

Also, I adored his two seperate distinctive American accents. Some actors can't even do one, and he did TWO in one episode. I love JLM acting sfm.
