“He’s coming back” – Sherlock mini-episode appetizer

It’s been a long time since the last episode of BBC One’s Sherlock, but tomorrow night marks the return of our favorite sleuth to American television in “The Empty Hearse,” a clever nod to Conan Doyle’s “The Empty House,” the story in which Sherlock returns from plunging to his apparent death at the hands of Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls.

Have you seen this clever mini-episode “prequel” to Season Three yet?  In it, Anderson, the idiot forensics-team member who dislikes Sherlock (and who has apparently been fired from the police force since “The Reichenbach Fall” finale episode of Season Two) meets with Lestrade in an effort to convince him not only that Sherlock isn’t really dead but also that he’s slowly making his way back to London.
