I won’t be disappointed if there’s no kiss on the final episode. I mean to say that it could very well happen, but the writers have said and shown us that those two are already utterly devoted to one another in a way that transcends sexuality and physicality.
Although those things are nice, that wasn’t what I wanted. What I wanted was to hear it, and we did, both from Sherlock and Mary’s mouth. We’ve already seen it, because how many “bros” are so dependent on one another that they fall into despair and darkness when they’re not around one another. It’s crippling and not always healthy, but it is what it is.
Maybe that’s what Moftiss is trying to tell us. Their relationship cannot be labelled because in ways it is so intimate and beyond understanding if we are merely looking on a physical level.
These are soul mates and no one can deny it. Their lives are inevitably intertwined and as we’ve seen, destiny will always bring them back to one another. Sherlock is John’s Sun just as John is the center of Sherlock’s universe. No one can get in the way of that and I highly doubt Irene Adler could, either.
This is a love story and it will always be about John and Sherlock, sex or no sex; kiss or no kiss. I’m content with that.
