Moments before the epic scene that didn’t happen: John comes back to Sherlock on his own Mary-encouraged steam. Not because Sherlock saved his life to pave the way for him to do so. Just because he wants to.
He always wanted to, really, but his pride and anger were (quite rightly) keeping him away. So now he’s going to swallow all that, because being near the object of his desire, his drug of choice, his core happiness, is just too attractive a proposition for him. He has to go.
With Sherlock dead and having no other real option, John did his best to continue on as half a man. But with Sherlock alive and well and back at 221b, no matter how angry, hurt and humiliated he is, John can’t resist the temptation to go to Sherlock and be whole again.
So here he is: collar popped, gloves on, moustache off. I bet he smells really good, too. He’s prepared himself for this return. John wouldn’t get this far without having prepared something to say. I wonder what it was.
I bet he smells really good, too.
I don’t know why, but that was my same thought when (re)watching the above scene: he just looks so… perfect, I guess, in and to every possible sense.
Sherlock would’ve swooned.
I know these are old interviews but I’ve become a tiny bit obsessed with Sarah Arthur’s clothing choices for the entire series so I’m reading all the interviews again. Also I find it really interesting that she very much says that John’s clothing choices changed because of his loss of Sherlock. [x]
Brilliant. How did I miss this interview? When the photos from #setlock started appearing, there was a lot of speculation as to what the change in John’s coat was meant to signify (e.g. his longer coat was a nod to Sherlock’s own distinct Belstaff). Love this explantation.
Sherlock and John will finally kiss in series 35 and I’ll be here like
