“I am all right, but indeed, Holmes, I can hardly believe my eyes. Good heavens! to think that you – you of all men – should be standing in my study.”
--Dr. John Watson, “The Adventure of the Empty House”
Leigh: I don't mean to alarm you but Sherlock Holmes seems to have come back from the dead. This does indeed make him a zombie since he does not seem to have an affinity for blood or leather trench coats. I can only praise Moran for attempting to take out the zombie Holmes before he tried to kill poor, unsuspecting Watson. Really, when dealing with a zombie it is best not to follow them to a new location. Or is that a hippie? They really are the same things aren't they? Maybe that's why they're called Deadheads. This is all tangential because it is early and Leigh has had too much coffee and not enough food.

Back to the story at hand.
Holmes seems to have returned from the dead and giving poor Watson a dead fright. We've seen this scene acted out in a few different films, where Holmes is disguised as someone else, meets up with Watson and then scares the living daylights out of him because I mean, who wouldn't be scared when they see someone who they thought was dead standing in front of him.
