so…can we talk about the fact that Mary was a part of John’s subconscious in this ep…and literally the ENTIRE TIME she’s trying to convince him to talk to Sherlock, stay with Sherlock, to go back to Baker Street…John WANTS TO BE WITH SHERLOCK. he just doesn’t want to admit it to himself.
also…i think the clever Mary in his head drives home the point that John is way cleverer than he believes he is. he’s intelligent, he’s intuitive, he’s capable…and he knows how Sherlock thinks and acts and feels. he knows Sherlock SO WELL.
pretty damn smart, indeed.
