when the sniper who lives on their block is shot after saving him from getting hit by a car! He’s musing about how the man died for touching him but he does it in a siken-esque “talking about john” way….
though come to think of it moriarty also dies when sherlock shakes his hand….and i reject the deleted scene as canon but magnussen also touched….
moral of the story: this is a fairytale about how john saved sherlock’s life but couldn’t touch him and now everyone who touches sherlock and isn’t john MUST DIE. my kind of story.
