Of all the stuff in this episode that makes me feel sick, this right there probably wins.
I just can’t stop thinking FUCK YOU MARY
Neither can John.
But god, the way he falls. It gives me a lump in my throat, every time. I just can’t believe that anyone thinks Sherlock deserved this, or that Mary wouldn’t/shouldn’t get her comeuppance for this.
Just. No. This is not okay. This will NEVER be okay.
I just can’t believe the dumb paramedics let him keep spewing his bullshit to John instead of attending to him immediately BECAUSE HE WAS GOING INTO FUCKING CARDIAC ARREST
Like sure bro you’ve got time let them chat
I can’t even watch this scene anymore now that I know how heart attacks feel like, I don’t even care if it’s fictional, fuck you Mary
I hate that both the Mofftiss and the Mary supporters trivialise such a dangerous and huge thing like someone going into cardiac arrest and try to make it sound as if he broke a fucking toenail or something
I also hate that they didn’t show any of John’s own medical expertise in this, that he never seemed to grasp HOW close Sherlock came to never opening his eyes again, and who was responsible for that. How appalling an action that was, to do that to someone you supposedly claim to be friends with. It’s all just treated so casually.
I wanna believe that John is in shock in that scene and this’s the reason why he can’t react. Unlike the royal guard, who was a stranger, just another patient to him, Sherlock is so much more for him that he’s overwhelmed by the fear of losing him again.
I’d like to read this scene this way (but I know it could be also a very poor writing).
And let’s look at Mary: she isn’t worried about Sherlock, she doesn’t show any sign of regret for what she has done: even if Sherlock died, she wouldn’t care at all. She’s just worried about John hating her. Pure selfish behaviour.
No forgiveness! Never, no matter what is in our future. Mary is irredeemable as far as I am concerned. John hates her so much in that last gif. You will not convince me he will ever forgive this.
No one will ever be able to convince me that John Watson, the John Watson who told off Mycroft for putting Sherlock in danger in TRF, the John Watson who punched a cop for insulting Sherlock, the John Watson who grieved for over a year and a half for Sherlock, would forgive someone SHOOTING him.
He would never, never in a million years, forgive someone shooting his Sherlock. NEVER. NO. It would never happen.
