“I Love You”
I’m sad that all that people saw in that ‘I love you’ scene was just a woman being played by this dashing yet insensible man. All I saw was a man trying to save his friend, battling with his own belief that ‘sentiment is a chemical defect found on the losing side’, and feeling devastated after realising how much he’s hurt her.
It’s okay to criticise female characters when their portrayal doesn’t give them justice (and I think Molly’s did), but you’re missing the point here. This scene - this episode - was about Sherlock realising that having emotions, caring, is part of being human. That that’s not weakness. Being unaffected by what’s happening around him and being unattached would just make him like Eurus.
