Holmes and Watson's lives are threatened by an influential, worldwide criminal network connected to the murder attempt on Morland Holmes (John Noble). Also, Sherlock's grievances with his father threaten their alliance to bring their mutual adversary to justice.

Holmes correctly tells Watson that despite the Hollywood trope of bombs being built with collapsing circuits and color-coded wiring, most bombs are simple, purpose made devices improvised in the mind of the maker, but with very straight forward and simple wiring. Wire colors don't matter because demolitions experts don't use plans set forth in manuals that require specific colored wires to be used for certain purposes. As Holmes puts it, "bomb-makers don't build tests of electrical engineering skills, they build devices that go bang." See more
As an employee of the United States Postal Service, Autumn Dunbar's murder would make the investigation of her murder a federal case, but it would not fall under the jurisdiction of the FBI. Crimes committed by and against postal employees are investigated by the United States Postal Inspection Service (USPIS), which is the law enforcement division of the US Postal Service. USPIS's jurisdiction is defined as "crimes that may adversely affect or fraudulently use the U.S. Mail, the postal system or postal employees." See more

Despite the plots of the many movies that you tell me are good which are in fact not good, bombmakers don't build tests of electrical engineering skill, they build devices that go bang! The simpler the device, the more likely it is to explode.
