I just want to point out something to those of us who haven’t waited years between episodes of Sherlock. The time between Episode 3 and Episode 4 was two years, meaning fans had to wait TWO YEARS to find out what happened to Sherlock and John at the pool with Moriarty. There was a massive cliffhanger and then fans WAITED and then it turned out to be nothing of importance. What a let down! Oh but wait! That’s exactly what happened between episodes 6 and 7. Sherlock fell, but he survived somehow, and then fans waited TWO YEARS to find out how, but it didn’t matter how because the massive cliffhanger was nothing of importance. AND THEN they DID IT AGAIN between episodes 9, 10, and 11, spanning THREE YEARS and the Moriarty’s return massive cliffhanger turned out to be NOTHING.
First of all, I want to congratulate you. I love everything you write! And now my question. I've read that John is Mary's possession and I don't really understand it. Is it just because she is possessive and jealouse or is there something else about her that I don't see? Thanks for your time!
