  1. This story was interesting, but I’m not excited about the ending. I just find it irritating when authors kill off main characters; it’s almost a cop out to me. But it’s a comforting to know its not really the end.
    Anyways, I’m in the same boat (no pun intended) as Sarah when It comes to the symbolism of the water. I was always taught that water is generally a symbol for cleansing and change, and I can see that in the story. Holmes is cleansing himself if his rival, in efforts to succeed and move forward to live in a new era sans a rival. Doyle is cleansing himself of his most famous character to write more ‘deserving’ literature. It’s a fitting, albeit annoying, way to end a series.

  2. very punny!
