After reading Reichenbach theories, I have an understanding about what could and couldn’t have happened except for four things.
~I’m going with he did fall and hit the ground, because there is a clear screenshot of someone not Sherlock on the gurney. Why would you switch one body double for another body double? It’s possible he landed on something we don’t see/was moved, so he doesn’t die. ~
- How did Sherlock’s body turn 90 degrees? While falling he was clearly perpendicular to the building. When he landed, he was parallel to it.
- If he did hit the ground, how did keep from dying? Obviously since he wanted to fake his death, the fall should have been able to kill him, to make it believable.
- How did he save his face? Going with~he did fall, he did hit the ground, somebody dumped blood on him~when we see him in the graveyard there are no cuts or scars
- Where did he go when he switched with the guy glimpsed on the gurney? How did the switch go unnoticed?
