Lestrade facepalming in The Reichenbach Fall
I can’t feel any sadder about poor Lestrade in this and every episode.
MOFFAT, GATISS. YOU HAD BETTER GET HIM SOME KIND OF PICK-ME-UP IN SEASON THREE AND I DON’T JUST MEAN SHERLOCK COMES BACK.
Season 3 is just Sherlock and John solving crimes while nice things happen to Lestrade.
Episode 1: Sherlock and John discover the truth behind the Ronald Adair murders and Moran is supah fly but also an evil dishonorably-charged sharp-shooting sociopath.
Lestrade’s favorite football team does very well in an important game and someone leaves a box of his favorite donuts on his desk.
Episode 2: Sherlock and John dye themselves ginger in order to investigate the strange “Red Headed League” which seems to hold ties to Moriarty’s old web.
Lestrade goes undercover to a club where many beautiful people dance with him and tell him how lovely he is. After the investigation is concluded (the job comes first), he gets some.
Episode 3: Sherlock is apparently infected by a neer-do-well with a highly deadly disease. He and John race to find the poisoner and save the day.
Lestrade receives an unexpected commendation and pay-raise. On the way home from work he finds a head-side-up penny.
