i just want to say that to me that episode was a disappointment not because johnlock didn’t happen.
its a disappointment because of the bad writing. its a disappointment because of the bad plot. its a disappointment because it tried too hard and it was over-complicated and in the end it made little to no sense. it was lacking in every way - story wise, visually and, most importantly, emotionally.
there was nothing groundbreaking about it.
