* Sherlock: You’ve been tending to your self-defense, well done.
* Sherlock: I’m not slipping; I’ve just grown more courteous.

* Sherlock: I did you a favor.
Mycroft: You did what you wanted, just like you always do.
* Joan: I don’t put up with him. We get along basically. He’s a friend.

Synopsis: A funeral (in Britain) is interrupted rudely by the ex-Scotland Yard Detective that Sherlock use to work with. Joan gets a text from Sherlock to meet her in a park. He informs her that he has solved part of the case they are working on. Messages are being sent via carrier pigeons. They apprehend the guy who was receiving it.

Sherlock becomes quite upset because he does not know where his belongings are. Mycroft then tells Joan that Sherlock had an affair with his fiancé. Joan stays at the apartment to deal with her jet lag and Sherlock goes after LeStrade. He locates him in a bar. Their conversation doesn’t go very well. LeStrade wants to work with Sherlock one more time to solve this case. Back at 221B Sherlock and Mycroft chat in the kitchen. Sherlock texts Joan to meet him at abandoned theater.

Back at the theater Sherlock informs LeStrade that the gun was 3D printed and melted in acetone to look like milk. They leave and head to a public plaza. Sherlock stands in front of one and uses signs to transmit a message. They argue while waiting. Someone bumps into Joan but it’s the information they were asking for. Joan goes to meet Mycroft at his restaurant. He admits he lies about how he lost weight. She then tells him he was sick and had a bone marrow transplant. He is jealous that Joan is Sherlock’s friend. Sherlock meets up with LeStrade with the list of 3D printers. He finds a connection. The two go to visit the connection. LeStrade breaks down the apartment door and finds the man dead.
