So soon already, 'Sherlock' season 3 will be at an end with this coming Sunday's finale installment "His Last Vow," pitting Sherlock Holmes and a newly- John Watson up against the threat of Charles Augustus Magnussen (Lars Mikkelsen, brother to ‘Hannibal”s Mads), the "Napoleon of Blackmail." The full set of photos from the finale have arrived so what can we deduce about the latest cliffhanger closer for our beloved BBC series?
Yes, already! 'Sherlock''s third season opener, "The Empty Hearse," won't hit PBS stateside until January 19, but already across the pond UK fans are preparing for the great detective's third finale, hopefully for a bit less biting cliffhanger this time around. The first trailer for "His Last Vow" has arrived, turning our stomachs with the introduction of Charles Augustus Magnussen!
We've waited nearly two years for 'Sherlock' season 3, delivering all the more devastation when its final episode brings the series to a close once more in February 2014.

We've learned who Sherlock Holmes will be matching finale wits with for "His Last Vow," none other than Charles Augustus Magnussen!
For as many questions as 'Sherlock' fans have over the eagerly anticipated third season, including those answered and glimpsed during the show's first panel at Comic-Con 2013, at least one major mystery has been thoroughly solved. Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen (yes, brother to 'Hannibal''s Mads) has joined the third cycle in the major villainous role, replacing Andrew Scott's "career criminal" Moriarty, but as whom?
