You Clearly Don’t Understand. Play You.
(Or: Things that everybody thinks make Sherlock canonically straight but they really really really don’t and why don’t you see that, because it’s so beautiful!!!)
Apologies to my Doctor-Who followers for this ongoing Sherlock intermezzo, but I just need to vent a little longer: I. Loved. Series. Four!!!
In particular, I loved The Final Problem. I loved Sherlock calling John family, I loved the smashing of the casket, the touching of non-existent glass, the air plane metaphor, Mycroft outside his comfort zone, etcetera etcetera etcetera. I loved the whole bloody thing.
But my favourite, favourite moment was the one when Eurus asks Sherlock to “play you”. And he plays the theme of The Woman.
Because it is the bravest thing Sherlock has ever done. And it makes this moment incredibly powerful.
