John Watson (Martin Freeman) may live to regret offering the role to a man who didn't realize he was John's best friend, but more importantly, one of the guests at John's wedding to Mary Morstan (Amanda Abbington) may not live to see the end of the day. Too bad that Sherlock is unable to focus his tremendous powers of deduction on the murder that's hatching right under his nose, but then the responsibilities of a best man are more diabolically exhausting than preventing a very clever killing.

Sherlock returns to London with an assignment (stop an impending terrorist attack on the city) and a plan (restore the old Sherlock-John partnership). When he finds that his brother Mycroft's warning that John has moved on with his life is true, will Sherlock have to accept a new reality and a new partner?
