With Avatar/LOK coming to an end… I just had to finally get this <3! And I’m so happy with it!!!

Finalproblem’s tag: The fact that Anderson videotaped this is super significant.
Finalproblem: I hope you will elaborate, if you have a moment and wouldn’t mind! We’d love to read it!
The quick-ish version:
I think it’s significant because it’s a good old-fashioned clue.
I’ve already established that there are about a gazillion reasons to think the story Sherlock told Anderson at the end of TEH is (mostly) a lie.
That lie was told for the sake of 1) Anderson, and 2) us at home.
But Anderson was in the room and we were “right there” as well. So who was the video recording for?
The prominent inclusion of the video camera in that scene suggests that the actual in-story point of the Lazarus lie is that Sherlock really wanted a third party to hear him tell that version of events. Which means Anderson was probably just a convenient vehicle for making that happen.
So if Sherlock actually meant the Lazarus lie for someone else…
Postscript 1: I know people have invented other excuses for the camera’s presence, but the trouble with those is… if it was merely some other “nothing” little reason, why wouldn’t the writers just include a few words to establish that reason? I mean, if the camera was there for a reason with no real plot significance yet they couldn’t figure out how to work in a quick explanation of why it was there, the natural choice would’ve been to simply skip adding the camera to the scene.
Postscript 2: And don’t get me started on the idea that the whole thing happened in Anderson’s mind, because that would only make the video camera more pointless.
Postscript 3: It’s not a metaphor, either. Just sayin’.
Watch the scene again, though. Sherlock steals the tape.
Except he doesn’t. People have been saying that he does since shortly after TEH aired, but I’m not sure why since it literally doesn’t happen.
Multi-level nerdery follows:
While Sherlock does walk circles around Anderson that put him in the vicinity of the camera, neither his pattern of motion nor the fact that his hands are mostly kept in his pockets are consistent with the action of ejecting a tape.
Also, what tape? Tapes are no longer standard on consumer camcorders, especially camcorders of that size and shape.
Going deeper, as best as I can tell that camera is a Canon VIXIA HF M52 (or sister model) with the brand name covered up.
That line of camera can record to either an internal flash drive or an SD memory card. (And even if you doubt my model assessment, that’s a pretty standard feature set for most consumer camcorders of this type.)
If Anderson was recording to the internal flash drive, no way Sherlock could steal it since we know he didn’t walk off with the whole camera.
If Anderson was recording to an SD card… I don’t care if he is Sherlock Holmes, he did not eject and remove an SD card from a Canon on a tripod all casual-like, while moving, in a fraction of a second.
I mean, here’s a diagram of the card slot and its location on the body of the camera:
No. No way. That’s already awkward when you’re not trying to be sneaky.
Finally, there’s this:
See that little red light? It was still blinking after Sherlock had left the room.
That baby is the access indicator:
On Canons, it blinks red while video is recording.
It was still blinking when Sherlock left because the camera was still recording.
Sherlock definitely didn’t steal the memory card.
Anderson’s the one with the original copy of the recording.
Which brings us back to wondering what Sherlock counted on Anderson doing with it…
I recently got my friend to watch Doctor Who and I just wanted to share some of our text conversations about it.
