I think people are forgetting how well Silver played everyone in 405
Even though we knew he would never betray Flint we were actually convinced that he was going to. Why? Because Silver can act. Better than we ever thought he could. Yet Hands, Billy, the crew AND the audience are still underestimating him in this situation now
Silver told Billy to kill Flint in 405
Now he’s telling 6 men to go kill him in 408
Events are being repeated like they have been throughout this season yet people are STILL believing what is being fed to them
And look.. we know there is going to be some sort of twist. It’s what will make it, as Luke said, his ‘favourite written episode’. We’ve always been right about how important Flint and Silver are to each other. Don’t let this fool you. Don’t be like Billy and fall into the trap of thinking it was that easy to turn them against each other. He has underestimated their relationship again. Just like he underestimated it before.
Seriously, the writers essentially gave Sherlock William Scott Holmes to us.
Moffat and Gatiss completed their part in his story, and set up each happy ending that we could want. Now, it’s up to us all to make that happy ending into the story we all want to see. No one’s end wasn’t real. No lies were told. All I Love You’s and texts and caresses gave us all exactly what we wanted and they were all as real as we want them to be. Sherlock belongs to us now.
Steven and Mark are finished telling the story they wanted to tell. Now it’s our turn to continue that into whatever we wish. Don’t talk yourself out of your happiness. We all deserve our happy endings.
100% serious headcanon: Mila refuses to accept Yuuri into the family until he lets her lift him. It’s initiation, Yuuri. Everyone else at this rink has been hefted up over Mila Babicheva’s head like a sack of potatoes at least once. NOW ITS YOUR TURN.
out:// Rules update. Biggest thing is I’m running fully mutually exclusive now for my own comfort. Please respect this. If I do not post it is okay for non-mutuals to interact; please do not. I’ve been having some really uncomfy experiences, and I didn’t want to do this, but it is to the point it’s stressful for me.
