Brief Synopsis:
An edit combining the final two episodes of series four, "The Lying Detective" and "The Final Problem"

It's not a game anymore. Sherlock, John and Mycroft engage of an emotional battle of wits not just with Sherlock's maniacal and manipulative sister Euros, but with one another as well. From the pitfalls of drug addiction to the boasts of seemingly untouchable media darlings to three heart-wrenching words on the end of a phone conversation. The lies mount up, leading to our heroes reaching a moment of definitive truth. Context is everything.
Intention:
To close out the epic saga begun in "The Fall of Sherlock" by ranger613 , and continued in theryaney's "Return of Sherlock" and "The Vow of Sherlock".
Special Thanks:
theryaney, and jswert123456 for feedback and cover art.

Cuts and Additions:
-Feature now opens with the joining of two scenes: the pre-titles and the scene revealing Mrs. Hudson arriving at John's home with Sherlock stashed in the car.

-Removal of Sherlock's encounter with Euros in the guise of Culverton Smith's daughter (their encounter still happened and is referenced, we just don't see a lot of it, as most of is just Sherlock showing off and feeling the affects of his depression and drug addiction)

-Fade out from after Sherlock hugs a grieving John removed, replaced with a cross fade.

-Pre-credits of Final Problem used to bridge the gap between Lying Detective and The Final Problem.

-The "death by drone" sequence, and Sherlock, John and Mycroft arriving at Sherringford in disguise removed

Thanks for this trimmed conclusion of the fourth season of Sherlock. As with Sherlock: The Little That Remains/Adventure of CAM, Zarius continues the flawless editing and removes what needs removing in order to present a coherent and entertaining finale, without losing the narrative. Nothing to remark, except a noticeable cross-fade (which I guess connects the episodes). Otherwise a stellar edit that will play nice with theryaney's and ranger613's edits of the earlier seasons.

Great work!

Thanks Badcrumble...if you're curious, the crossfade wasn't to connect the episodes, but to hide a fade-out that occurs right after Sherlock hugs John...it seems to be a particular issue so I might just re-insert the fade to black as it was in future copies. Glad it did not derail the enjoyment of the edit. -Z

Spot on. Zarius has once again hit the mark with this stellar edit combination of the two final episodes of Sherlock's season 4. Every cut is unnoticeable and well done. I love all the cuts and trims made to get rid the fat to get to the importance of the plot and our characters. An epic conclusion to a loosely connected quadrilogy too, if you include ranger613's and my edits, of condensing Sherlock into feature length movies. Only one transition where Sherlock's words fade into the next audio cue was tue downside, but even then, you could still hear what he said, and it still stayed a beautiful moment. The bridging of the two episodes as well is pretty smooth.

This was a blast, and I applaud Zarius for achieving a great quality with his edits. Outstanding work, mate! ;)
