review by
Mike Haberfelner

Thanks to the Linen Man (Clarke Peters), her former friend turned villain, Jessie (Darci Shaw) finds herself caught in a never-ending nightmare, and her sister Bea (Thaddea Graham), Sherlock (Henry Lloyd-Hughes) and Watson's (Royce Pierreson) combined powers aren't enough to wake her up again. Spike (McKell David) meanwhile tries to bring the gang together again, but that's easier said then done, as Billy's (Jojo Macari) in jail for manslaughter, possible murder (see last episode), and Leopold's (Harrison Osterfield) back in Buckingham Palace and groomed to be king. But somehow Spike manages to break into the palace and fetch Leopold, who of course wields enough influence to set Billy free. And together, Bea, Spike, Billy and Leopold can give Jessie the power to awaken from her dream - and about time as well, as the Linen Man has just broken into Scotland Yard to steal Sherlock's case files. Obviously he needs to find someone touched by the Rip - that thing that gives random people superpowers - to locate the Rip, which he figures will turn him into a god if he tears it wide open. Our heroes figure the Linen Man will probably come after the Bird Master (Rory McCann) from episode 1, so they put the asylum he's kept at under heavy guard, but to no avail, the Linen Man manages to get to the Bird Master anyhow, also by forcing some of the guards to kill themselves, but when trying to escape the asylum walks into a trap Sherlock has set for him. But for some reason, Sherlock then has a change of heart and doesn't only let him escape but accompanies him to the Rip ...


A rather typical penultimate episode where several narrative threads are tied up, some more loosely than others, and the scene is set for the (season) finale, and as such this one is actually better than some of the earlier episodes as it raises the stakes while offering quite a bit of excitement. On the downside, it's not very good at tieing up loose ends, as for example Billy's having been thrown into prison is too easily resolved, likewise Leopold's return to the Irregulars. Still an ok enough episode that really builds up excitement for the finale.
