‘Sherlock’ season 3, episode 2 preview: ‘The Sign of Three,’ and Martin Freeman’s big day

Wedding -Did you enjoy the premiere of “Sherlock” season 3 tonight? It was an ambitious, fast-paced 90 minutes that felt like it was much shorter than it actually was. The only sad thing is that there are only two episodes left the rest of the way … and one of them is going to be airing on Sunday in “The Sign of Three.” (The good news if you are located in America is that you have a little more time; the premiere is not going to air until Sunday, January 19.)

Just in case you have yet to see any details at all of the upcoming episode, let’s start this article off by sharing the official synopsis via the BBC:

“In episode two of this new series, Sherlock faces his biggest challenge of all – delivering a Best Man’s speech on John’s wedding day!┬áBut all isn’t quite as it seems. Mortal danger stalks the reception – and someone might not make it to the happy couple’s first dance. Sherlock must thank the bridesmaids, solve the case and stop a killer!”

As for the first promo, it definitely has a feeling of great intensity about it as you see Sherlock potentially ruining Watson’s entire reception by giving a chaotic speech; but, it turns out that there may be a great reason. There is going to be business that the two men need to attend to beyond the ceremony, and while it may send the wedding on to the brink of disaster, it will be for a good reason.
