(Has this been done already? Probably. Maybe even by me. Tch.)
S1-3. How many times do people say “fake”? 24. Wow. That seems like a lot. Working backwards….
S3: Sherlock’s fall and death are called “fake” 4 times.
TRF: “Fake” shows up twice. It’s about Sherlock himself.
“I’m a fake.” (Don’t believe in me). 😰
“Nobody could fake being such an annoying dick all the time.” (I believe in you). 😥
ASiB: Sherlock calls Irene’s death “fake” as he’s working out her scheme (nice foreshadowing there).
TGG: The Vermeer painting is a “fake”. 17 times. Wow. That seems like a lot. 🤔 *thinks about it* 😳 SEVENTEEN TIMES. That seems like a LOT. Like something to pay attention to.
It made me think of that cold, white, almost empty gallery in TGG. Of Miss Wenceslas, her long stork legs like Sherlock’s, her false bravado hiding the fear of discovery. How the neckline of her dress exposed her- and how her necklace, an oversized pale silver disk, shimmered like… (a moon? a DVD? a piece of armor? a target?) on her chest.
I think I need to do more thinking about design and dialogue around Miss Wenceslas. More to come, maybe.
Thanks, as always, to Ariane DeVere for the transcripts!
