It was a bravura performance by Cumberbatch: his Holmes was kind, wise and witty, yet childishly jealous and endearingly naïve.
We continue to see Sherlock loosen up emotionally, and the ways in which that makes him more vulnerable than he used to be.
Funny might not be what everyone wants from the great detective, but it's hard to complain when you're laughing this much.
After this rather light and fluffy appetizer, let's hope that next week's finale has some meat to it.
It's now clear that the show is more interested in exploring the life of the world's greatest detective -- his personal relationships and his struggle to maintain them -- than seeing him apply his trade.
Changing a show's format and tone is somewhat jarring. And yet Sherlock is pulling off this caper, so far. Because when you entertain at this high of a level, it's easy for viewers to ignore the whiplash and hang on for the ride.
All in all, "The Sign of Three" was a zippy, heartfelt upgrade on last week's adventure.
It's well executed and a satisfying payoff for what often seemed an erratic episode.
It's all gold, but creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss manage to imbue the show with heart, and end on a melancholy note.
"The Sign of Three" settles in as the squishy middle of the third season. And while it solidifies this series' increasingly-meta tone (there's plenty of fan service here), it also provides breathing room for some welcome beats with its lead characters.
