Yes, they kept Mycroft as a member of the British MI-6. It makes sense, Sherlock in the books always stated that Mycroft was smarter and more skilled them him. And most media versions of Mycroft have him being up in power in the British government.

Sherlock is going to be furious with him for keeping this a secret from him for years. And also for not coming forward with this information when Joan was in danger.

I am interested to see how he will react, of course he will be incredibly mad that Mycroft was partly responsible for Joan being put in danger, but it is interesting because Sherlock has always thought of Mycroft as being lazy and wasting his intelligence, so I am wondering how he will react to the news that this may not actually be the case.

I love the scene from the promo of them in Sherlock's kitchen.

Sherlock: You kept this secret from me for over a decade.
Mycroft: (deadpan) Because we're so close.

Anna! You too!

I really can't wait to see Sherlock trying to deal with Mycroft being brilliant, too.

Hey

Yeah I think Sherlock does think Mycroft does has intelligent, just doesn't use it correctly if that makes sense. He always thought Mycroft was a lazy and unambitious. Only to be shocked to find that his brother is rather high up in the British goverment/MI-6. I can see him throwing a tantrum that he wasn't able to figure it out himself before all this.

Though they weren't close, probably never traveled in the same circles. And then Sherlock disappeared in his unhealthy habits. I forget from the books how much older Mycroft is suppose to be then Sherlock.

Neither did I, in fact I encourage Sherlock to do it anyway

They're family, we root for them to have a relationship, but it seems quite difficult. They're very alike, the big difference is that Sherlock is more transparent, we almost can see it coming, while Mycroft plays it all very carefully. But I'm intrigued about the father, the way they talk about him, he must be something. I hope we get to know him next season.

I can't wait to meet the father, I am sure he will be an interesting character and will certainly be hard for Sherlock to deal with.

I saw Lucy tweeting about the father, so, who knows, they're planning to have him next season.

I hope when they finally show the father that both the Holmes brothers are there.

those were great moments

I love how Mycroft thought that he could be a replacement for Joan! At least Sherlock put him in his place
