sorry if someone has already talked about this but the abandoned Underground station in TEH is called Sumatra Road, so this fictional unused avenue shares the name of the alternate destination in Sherlock’s fix-it fiction where the protagonist defies the odds and lives, and that’s where he and John go together to defuse the bomb (both the emotional one and the actual one). John and Sherlock go to Sumatra (Road) and defy the odds by avoiding death and have an emotional exchange where John forgives him. Sherlock’s idea of a happy ending isn’t just surviving it’s living with John’s forgiveness and esteem.
