In the TST opening Lady sw says "out doctors assured us you were clean" or smth like that. So does that mean Sherlock actually IS clean in that scene and was acting like this because of TAB realizations? Just wanting to express his inner gayness?
Yes, she did say that! I’d like to think that, yes Lovely :) Although he might think he’s just on borrowed time, so he just lost all shits to give. No need to keep buttoned up anymore if you’re just about to die. As well, they made his killing Magnussen meaningless; Sherlock is visibly upset when they show him the doctored video (”That’s not how it happened”) because he did it for John, and essentially that’s all been erased. PLUS these are the people who sent him to his death, so I imagine his tolerance and respect for them all is at absolute zero.
Unless of course he somehow acquired drugs between the doctor’s and going to the meeting without them noticing. Personally I don’t think he is, he just doesn’t care anymore. But I’m not a medical professional; it could be his tolerance for drugs is so high that it’s just not detectable anymore? I don’t know, don’t quote me!
Anyway, I prefer to believe he’s just super gay and is tired of hiding it.
