i really hate this moment. Mary’s already working them. she’s made John feel like he’s a terrible person for not forgiving Sherlock and she’s trying to trick Sherlock into liking her. making him think if he wants to get to John he needs her, that she’s the gate keeper to John. which she isn’t.
whats greats is that John and Sherlock look past Mary for a few moments and they get these looks on there faces. both opened mouthed like they want to say something. John in shock like he’s still dealing with the face that yes Sherlock is alive.
John looks lost. he looks scared, so much older because of the pain he’s had to go though. Sherlock turns his body to him and opens his mouth as well just looking at him. they share pain for a moments.
the pain of not being together, of that night not working out. i think John half wants to go back to Sherlock but pride and anger holds him back. Sherlock of course thinks he’s lost him. does’t realize that all thats really happened is that he’s woken John up.
Perfect summary of this scene, especially regarding Mary imposing herself as the gatekeeper to John, as the only one with the power to fix this. Sherlock picked a terrible way to stage his revelation, but John always would have come around. He spends the whole of the next day feeling like the clock is dragging through his weird/annoying patients, his thoughts so much on Sherlock that he even thinks or hopes that one of them IS Sherlock in disguise - and is laughing despite himself - and the instant he finishes work, he heads to Baker Street. Nothing could have kept them apart once he knew that Sherlock was still alive. They never needed Mary’s “help” or intervention. They only needed time for John to cool down. That’s it. Because John never could have stayed away.

and Ben is a fucking nerd as usual
In the commentary for ASiB, Benedict says the following about the scene with the naked Irene Adler:
"I do love that the moment, the only moment that he verbally stumbles- and I sort of did it deliberately, was because I sensed a bit of competition in Watson starting to turn on the charm, and in desperately trying to get in there to impress I went ‘neagnaweknga’”
Which confirms what many of us suspected: Sherlock is frazzled not because brainy is the new sexy, but because Irene and John are flirting. I’ll leave you to your deductions.
people who unironically use multiple exclamation points in texts are the cutest fucking thing omfg. even mundane things are made cuter like “just got on the bus!!!! will be home soon!!!” like yeAH UR ON THE BUS U BIG CUTIE. I WILL SEE U AT HOME. LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE CROSSING THE STREET.
