Is it possible that season four is all in John's mind. Is that what we needed before we could get Johnlock, for John to deal with his issues. After all Sherlock dealt with his in TAB, so is it at all possible that this is John's narrative?
A very good supposition, actually. When you think about it… huh. You know what? This would make sense in a way… I mean, the off characterizations of all the characters (how John would perceive them?). John being a little OTT (John’s inner frustration with his life and his own self)… The realizations of Sherlock caring about someone because they were suicidal like he was. Sherlock’s character being really off because it’s how John sees him. Smashing Thatchers could be him dealing with his own sexuality and issues, where Sherlock is the personification of his own deductive method. The intimate hug: his own desire for touch from Sherlock.
We even speculated that this season would be back in John’s perspective. Hmm. And there was that tunnel scene filmed in ep 1 where Sherlock was driving, what if it was a crash, and John is in hospital? Especially following the episode where Sherlock is in his own mind palace.
IF. IF there is a secret episode, what if it’s a culmination of all the three episodes’ extra footage – That’s how you film a fourth episode in the allotted time given.
I’m still remaining mostly skeptical, but yeah, John’s characterization is rather spotty and all the inconsistencies are so glaring yet never addressed.
Another one for the Tinfoil Hattery crew.
