It’s fucking me up that Ajay is a Sherlock mirror. It’s like, they might not want to show Sherlock being tortured in any more detail and instead give us this character so we can infer how Sherlock might have dealt with it all. Which is NOT WELL.
I look in the mirror and I don’t like what I see.
I see things that can be fixed and things that can be hidden.
But I have no energy, I don’t have enough strength the change those things.
So I’m going to keep looking at this mirror hoping that one day, things might change.
Random fact: In Mexico, it’s a common belief that if you cuss out at a ghost, it’ll leave you alone.
OK, so this afternoon I was in voice lesson, just blasting ‘Sebben Crudele’ like a pro to revise italian pronunciation and overall style and all of a sudden the room got super chilly. I got a shiver down my back. My teacher’s cats just suddenly woke from their nap and looked up, ears perked, to somewhere behind my back. Mind you, there was a mirror in front of me and I couldn’t see anyone behind me, then I FELT A FREAKING FINGER RUN OVER MY BACK.
So I kind of panicked, messed up my singing, my teacher stopped me, began to correct me, and I heard something shuffling in the corner, so I turned around. Still nothing. Teacher saw me turning around to look at the corner so he went “What are you looking at?” and I just shook my head and looked ahead again. He then calmly looked at the corner and went “Sácate a la chingada, pinche cabrón!” (Losely translated= Go fuck yourself, son of a bitch)
I kid you not, the room got cozy again immediately after he did that and he continued the lesson like he hadn’t just cussed a ghost outta the room.
If this is in his Mind Palace: Breaking a mirror in a dream (or in one’s Mind Palace?) suggests that you are breaking an old image of yourself. Shooting the mirror here will mean Sherlock will realize once and for all that he doesn’t have to choose between what Mycroft and John symbolize - his mind and his heart, his logic and his emotions. If it’s a two-way mirror, shattering it will signal his confidence in moving forward, especially since our view here shows no door.
If this is in the real world: That two-way mirror will either have someone behind it or it will lead to an empty room (perhaps there’s some sort of diversion that causes the person watching to leave in a hurry OR it’s all part of some sick game of psychological horror and it doesn’t matter if Sherlock gets out or not, it’s just another test to see how clever he is, what he would be willing to do, and how much it’ll take for him to break). Shooting the mirror will give all of them an escape. The symbolism could apply here as well.
