Sherlock fans entered the fourth season of the BBC series expecting to see the ramifications of whatever nefarious plan James Moriarty had put in place before his death at the end of season two. As it turns out, though, Sherlock, Watson and the rest of the gang have had to deal with different threats altogether. 

In the season four premiere, titled "The Six Thatchers," Sherlock embarked on a case that he suspected may have been connected to Moriarty or the missing black pearl of the Borgias. Instead, he ended up stumbling upon a secret from Mary Watson's past. The end result left Sherlock and John's relationship completely in shambles. 

The boys of Baker Street will have to get their act together soon, though, as episode two, titled "The Lying Detective" is set to introduce a villain that has been described as "the purest evil.
