Hello, I don't know if someone has brought this up yet, but it just came to me watching Rebekah's videos again. Jennifer Wilson from ASIP was a John mirror, who miscarried a daughter named Rachel. So if Jennifer = John, does Rachel = ROSIE?
We’re not actually supposed to believe that there was no signal on
Sherlock’s phone, right? Network irregularities aside, either most
phones work in the lab or most don’t, and Sherlock would have
switched networks ages ago if this were a persistent problem easily fixed. Further,
he surely knew Mike’s phone-keeping habits already.
Pretending no signal is his first little manipulation of John, a deliberate attempt to extract something more from him. And that’s a quick decision being made in this gif. Notice how his eyes linger when he looks back down? So intrigued.
[I’m sure this is established already but it’s just occurred to me.]
Sherlock’s sexuality is a point of interest in this show. Not once is it explicitly stated that he is sexually interested in women, but it is pointed out that other characters believe he either never has sex or is in a romantic relationship with a man. They’ve brought it up in some way in almost every episode, and more importantly, they have constantly been bringing John into it as well.
