"The Great Game" is the third episode of the television series Sherlock. It was first broadcast on Sherlock uses it to lure out Moriarty, but John shows up instead, wearing an explosive vest. The Bruce-Partington Plans are also referenced in Sherlock's final blogpost before meeting Moriarty at the pool: they are updated. Same such thing happened with my this puzzle: A Letter: When Sherlock meets Moriarty. I love the Sherlock on BBC and hence decided to.
Sherlock interviews the missing man's wife, then the owner of the car rental, and deduces that he was recently in Colombia. Finding the blood in the car had been frozen, Sherlock concludes the lost man paid the agency owner to help him disappear. Sherlock announces the solution. Once again, the hostage is freed.
A third message and hostage point Sherlock to the death of a television personality apparently from tetanus from a cut.
However, the wound was made post-mortem. Sherlock pins the crime on the housekeeper, also her brother's lover, who murdered her by increasing her botox dose. Although Sherlock solves the puzzle, the blind hostage starts describing her kidnapper's voice.
The kidnapper detonates the bomb, killing her and eleven others. The fourth message is a photograph of the River Thames without hostage calls.
At the matching riverbank, Sherlock finds a security guard's corpse, identifying it as the work of an assassin called Golem.

Sherlock tracks him down, but is too late to stop another murder, an astronomy professor whom the guard talked to after he realised a recently discovered painting by Vermeer was a fake. While Sherlock is examining the painting, the fourth hostage, a child, calls and gives Sherlock ten seconds to prove the forgery. He spots a supernova within the painting that occurred centuries after the real painting was made, just in time to stop the bomb. The museum curator confesses the forgery and that her accomplice was called Moriarty.
Investigating Mycroft's case in secret, Sherlock and John trace the MI6 clerk's death to his prospective brother-in-law, who confesses he stole the flash drive and accidentally killed him. The man still has the drive since he had no idea how to sell it. Sherlock uses it to lure out Moriarty, but John shows up instead, wearing an explosive vest.
Moriarty appears and turns out to be Molly's boyfriend, Jim. He tells Sherlock to stop interfering, but Sherlock refuses. Moriarty leaves momentarily, and Sherlock takes off John's vest.

The Bruce-Partington Plans are also referenced in Sherlock's final blogpost before meeting Moriarty at the pool: When Sherlock asks Watson what he thought about the trainers, that is clear reference to a scene early in " The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle " where Holmes asks Watson to deduce what he can about Mr Henry Baker's hat in the original story.
The pink mobile phone receives messages with Greenwich pipswith their numbers decreasing with each message, pointing towards " The Five Orange Pips ". Now all I needed was a story.

Hudson noticed that Moriarty is building a new lock at her house".

So I silently took care of this highly unlikely and the only possibility that I could think of. It also worked as some red herring I hope. Then I posted the puzzle. But that's not it because you don't learn before posting the puzzle, you learn after posting it, when people give their valuable reviews.
So I went into the chatroom and asked for any grammatical mistakes so that I could eliminate any confusion as early as possible. Then Jonathan corrected the address. Later I surprisingly found out about another possible answer pointed out. So I added a thing to filter out the intended answer. So, few things to learn: Learn from your mistakes. Don't hesitate to ask help whenever you are unsure.
