added Blackwood since he did want this event to succed
Few points: 1) I should change my question including Blackwood since afaik he wanted to dominate with fear. Only the professor wanted the machine itself. 2) Holmes does release his cuffs way before he jumped and even threw those to Coward. 3) I know that 30 would be unbelievable and many movies may have this problem but this movie is the first where it seemed like the villain put no effort in the defense. Maybe because I am used to the villain be part of the defense? I dont know.
Blue blood is a reference to nobles. Therefore having a purple wedding is a mix of blue blood with red blood. But this would mean that the red wedding was without nobles. At the red wedding were no kings but lords.
@richard i thought so too but it is like someone would ask about harry potter and the philosopher stone and you would answer that dumbledore dies. it completes the answer but i would still set it in spoilers. but since spoilers are not recommended i think this site is only good (for me at least) for single movies and not for tv/movie series. furthermore we should not discuss in comments and switch to meta
well i guess i wont use this site anymore then. thanks for your detailed answer though!
