Omg omg pls i need to discuss this with someone expert on sherlock. So im rewatching the series for the second time (im.fairly new to the fandom hehe) and i just noticed janine and sherlock never had sex! Ive always thought they did! And second of all, when she was leaving the hospital room she says "you shouldnt have lied to me, i know what kind of man you are, we could of been friends" what does she mean by what kind of man he is? Is she implying she knows hes gay or something? Pls
Im sorry maybe its all common knowledge for everyone who has been a fan longer but i rly rly need to know
Yes, that is a common belief to “sort of paying attention” watch thrus – that Janine and Sherlock had sex – but that scene at the hospital absolutely proved that they did not. And she is ABSOLUTELY implying that Sherlock is gay – she knows he is; this is implied at the end of TSo3 when she says “whatever you are”. I personally think that they are using each other to get what they need – she to get out of Magnussen’s claws and he needs to get into the tower – so it’s a mutual agreement to “be in a relationship”, and what she says at the hospital is for the benefit of whoever may be watching Sherlock (possibly Mary, since she did return to threaten him).
This isn’t proven canon, but it’s my best explanation for her. I do think she’s somehow involved in the whole Moriarty business (given that Sherlock has placed her with the Furies in his TAB Dream). I do think that Sherlock genuinely liked her though, since she was nice to him, and wanted to help her get out of Magnussen’s grasp.
