John walking in wearing his old uniform bein like “it doesn’t fit like it used to” and Sherlock being like
Sherlock: You are not coming.
John: Then you are not going.
For anyone who wondered why I was upset about the writers giving this exchange to Mary, here’s the actual ACD quote with brilliant GIF accompaniment. (White is Holmes. Yellow is Watson.)
holy mother of god this is AMAZING!!!
I GOT CHILLS
HOLY SHIT THAT IS AMAZING
holy mother fucker, you are a god.
I feel like this needs to be talked about.
OH MY GOD I HAVE NEVER NOTICED THOSE ON JANINE
Oops, my old tumblr name got deleted. That’s from here.
The interesting thing about Janine’s horns is that she gets them right as she moves in front of John, with his dejected confused face like so:
Janine’s physically stepping in and taking John’s place in the frame. To make smooches with Sherlock.
Then, boom. Devil horns. (Mess with the
bullship and you get the horns?)
Also, that expression on John? It’s only allowed on screen for a split second, and it’s one we’ve never seen before. It’s incredibly vulnerable.
And right as the camera cuts to him, he’s releasing his left hand from a very familiar little clench.
John gets clenchy when he’s feeling most vulnerable. When he’s feeling things he’s not allowed to feel. Of course the moments when Sherlock seems furthest from him are usually the moments where he’s wanting Sherlock the most.
