I'm pretty sure they're going to offer some kind of detailed explanation for Sherlock's survival. Whether it's going to be plausible, I dunno. The preceding episodes just hint so strongly at it.
I mean, "A Scandal in Belgravia" tells us that Sherlock can fake a death convincingly enough to fool Mycroft. And "The Hounds of Baskerville" is all about how you can trick people by controlling their expectations. And in that "death" scene it's clearly very important to Sherlock that Watson be standing in a very particular spot, possibly at a very particular time.
Hm. I've been thinking that he somehow needed to plant a fake body, but maybe, if he figured he could survive the fall (how tall is that building, anyway?), he might have come up with a way of covering his pulse points to make it seem like he had no pulse. Then, when they took his body inside, there was Molly ready to handle things.
It's either that or he grabbed some of the see-what-you-expect drug when they were at Baskerville, and the bicyclist was a confederate who dosed Watson with it.
