This is going to be a long post. But it will be about something I bet you’ve never thought of before.I promise - you won’t regret it.
NOTE: RICHARD BROOK WAS REAL. IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO ERASE ONE’S WHOLE LIFE OUT OF THE INTERNET AND CREATE A NEW ONE. JIM MORIARTY WAS A FICTION. HE NEVER REALLY EXISTED.
I don’t really know how I got the idea. Maybe I was thinking about a person out of everybody’s interest. I mean if no one is supposed to know anything about how for real things have been so far, Moffat will make important stuff visible yet unnoticed.
Maybe I was thinking how in Doctor Who the Doctor’s two companions were ginger and how the Doctor himself kept asking: Am I ginger?
There is one person on Sherlock who is both ginger and above suspicion – Kitty Riley.
And, surprisingly, she fits the role of Moriarty perfectly.
I can give you
some a lot of proof:
- First of all, just as we all know, at her apartment there were lots of paintings, what may suggest she is a fricking good artist, which might have made it easier for her to arrange the fake ‘oh no van buren supernova’ painting as well as, let’s not lie to ourselves, the reichenbach case that made Sherlock an ultimate hero. Obviously.
- Another slight clue may be the fact she had “make believe” on her apartment’s wall. If she wasn’t Sherlock-obsessed Moriarty why would she put exactly these words on her wall? After all it was Moriarty’s plan: to MAKE everybody BELIEVE Holmes was a fraud.
- What hit me is that everybody was either reading Moriarty’s words or seeing him fully as Richard Brook. Except for the Blind Lady and the Van Buren Fake Painting Lady. Of which the first died after saying: “His voice sounded so soft”. That could be caused either by Richard Brook talking to the Blind Lady Kitty’s words or by the Blind Lady still repeating WHAT MORIARTY WAS SAYING TO HER, like she was meant to die anyway. The VBFP Lady heard Moriarty whispering. Considering Kitty’s voice, the Lady can’t be sure whether it was male or Kitty’s voice she was hearing. I mean, c’mon, it was WHISPERING. Everybody else who ‘talked’ to Moriarty automatically assumed he was a man. It usually is a man. We all in our real world automatically assume a crime, any crime, is always committed by a bloke of some kind. And knowing Moffat, everything we automatically assume is wrong. Moriarty is a woman, thus he can’t communicate with others the normal way.
- At the beginning of the Great Game Sherlock got a letter. He recognized the handwriting as woman’s. “It’s a she?” – asked John. “Obviously.”
- A next subtle thing is that during the Great Game Moriarty calls Sherlock’s cases: puzzles. “I’ve sent you a little puzzle just to say hi.”, “12 hours to solve my puzzle”, “You solved my last puzzle” Richard Brook NEVER uses the word puzzle. Never.
- “Hello, sexy” – I think a man would use different words like : Hello, pretty boy. Or hello, cheekbones. Sexy sounds like a woman. A flirting woman. I might be wrong, though.
- Kitty Riley hired an actor named Richard Brook. He was to say whatever she ordered him to . Remember the files about Brook she had? It could have been done so she could reassure herself Richard was real OR she did her research to find the perfect actor to pretend Moriarty. The guy below Brook is called Andrew Brooke. The guys had different agencies’ names given. It means instead of proving Rich is a real person by looking him up on his agents’ website, she searched for him among all actors-Londoners . She must have typed ‘Richard Brook actor London. Just like she wasn’t sure whether she would find anyone like that. Weird.
- OK. Time for some real stuff. Like important-value stuff. The Brook’s FOX TIE PIN. People say it was because of a Grimm’s fairy tale about a fox who faked his death. But there’s also a story called The wolf and the fox and here is a quote: “The wolf had the fox with him, and whatsoever the wolf wished, that the fox was compelled to do, for he was the weaker.” If it doesn’t describe perfectly the Kitty-Rich relationship then I don’t know what does.
- ·Sherlock had also loads of details pointing the Snow White. But did we forget what, except for an apple, is the most characteristic thing from that fairy tale? A mirror. A FRICKING MIRROR AND A WICKED QUEEN WITH IT.
Oh yeah. A burnt gingerbread man. Hansel and Gretel. “I’ll burn you”. Gingerbread man. GINGERbread man. A perfect clue.
- ·When meeting Sherlock personally, Kitty had a smudge of ink on her wrist. It’s a bluff. She’s a fan pretending to be a journalist. She’s a journalist pretending to be a fan pretending to be a journalist. She’s a fan and a journalist pretending to be a fan pretending to be a journalist.
- And here’s a view on the Kitty’s apartment.
OH KITTY KITTY? Aren’t you missing a candle?
- Here’s Richard making that weird face expression and looking at John. At John? Or maybe at the lady in front of him? Kitty Riley?
- When Kitty hands John her article. We see for a moment its draft.
“Brook, who has known Holmes for decades.”
Why did Kitty mark that part? Has Brook really known Sherlock for such a long time? If no why would she write something like this?
Kitty decided to change the title to: SHERLOCK FAKE. And then she changed her mind again because when printed it had the previous title.
So why show us this?
Oh, yes. You know what’s coming, don’t you?
Look closely at the letter E and R.
And now look at this:
OH YES! KITTY WROTE THAT BLOODY MESSAGE!
She wrote it BEFORE she met Sherlock personally.
She wrote it. Mrs Moriarty.
- So, still in shock, I thought: wait a minute. Kitty is a journalist. Crazy about SH. She should have been be at the press conference at the beginning of A Study in Pink, right? I mean we all assumed Sherlock wrote these “Wrong” messages. But he wasn’t in the room. He wasn’t outside the glass door either. So how did he know when to send those messages? And why didn’t he put –SH at the end? His name was respected then.
The conclusion is simple. Messages were sent by someone who was INSIDE. Someone OTHER than Sherlock. Was it Kitty? I wanted to check it. And HOLY FUCKING SHIT guess who I found.
“One librarian. Two teachers. Two high pressure jobs, probably the City. Forewoman is a medical secretary, trained abroad […]”
HOW DID SHE GET IN WHILE NOT BEING A JOURNALIST?
She could do that only if she knew someone with a licence… Yep. :D
Also, there is this:
Kitty ordered her to go there. And to send those “Wrong”s.
Still one question remains. WHY?
“There are two types of fan. “Catch me before I kill again.” Type A.”
“Uh huh. What’s type B?”
“Your bedroom’s just a taxi ride away”
“Guess which one I am.“
