all i wanted at the end of the elementary s3 finale was joan to come up behind sherlock and place her chin on his shoulder and wrap her arms around him or just run her nails down the back of his shorn head or in some way touch him because he fucking needed it to ground him back to earth and out of heroin’s orbit

and i get it, joan was probably still trying to swallow down all of her own disappointment and anger and pity and frustration and sadness but i just needed them to touch one another

i think they both needed it
