I’m not sure how I feel about this chapter, but I do know the last bit made me laugh with the mental image! Let me know your thoughts!
“Meow.” Toby was nudging his head against Molly’s cheek as she slept.
“Toby, stop,” she groaned.
“Want me to get him for you?” Mary offered.
“No, it’s fine. He just needs some food,” Molly responded. She got up, slid her feet into her cherry decorated slippers and poured food in his bowl. “I’m going to grab some crisps.”
“I’ll come with you,” Mary said, hopping up from her own bed. “I’m in need of food that’s bad for me.” Stepping out of the room together, they heard shouting.
“Bloody hell, Sherlock, the next time I find another one of your experiments in MY fridge, they will be thrown out!” John exclaimed, storming out of the dorm. He turned to see the amused faces of Molly and Mary.
“Everything alright?” Molly asked.
“Oh, you know, Sherlock,” he brushed off. “And, uh, who might you be?” John inquired, his eyes flicking over to Mary.
“Mary Morstan,” she replied, a glint flashing in her eyes. The immediate chemistry was more than noticeable.
“John, we need to scour our room for cameras; it seems my brother doesn’t know how to respect boundaries,” Sherlock complained.
“What do you know about respecting boundaries, Sherlock?” John asked, his eyes never leaving Mary’s.
“Fine; Molly, will you help me then?” Sherlock asked. A small mew came from inside 219B.
“Oh, this is the one with the, uh,” John began but then lowered to a whisper, “cat.”
“Yes, uh, Molly Hooper,” she introduced herself.
“John Watson,” he nodded.
“Yes, yes, we’ve all been acquainted, but can we focus on my problems now?” Sherlock whined.
“Oh, for God’s sake,” John sighed. “Let’s take care of this now. Let your brother know it is my room too. It was very nice to meet you, Mary. Molly.” With that, they stalked back into 221B.
BRITAIN BRACED FOR FLOODS AS SHERLOCK SERIES FINALE AIR DATE DRAWS CLOSER
Britain has been warned to expect “major and life-threatening floods” caused by the tears of people watching the series finale of the BBC show ‘Sherlock’ this Sunday.
Sherlock, which returned to screens on New Year’s Day following a two-year hiatus, is notorious for employing underhand techniques such as “good acting” and “decent scripts” in order to solicit tears from its fans.
Experts are worried, however, that the coming episode - entitled “His Last Vow” - may well have gone over the top in its attempts to make audiences cry. Indeed, such is the magnitude of the threat, over 100 flood warnings have been put in place in England, Wales, and Scotland.
“Series finales are very dangerous in meteorological terms” said a spokesperson for the Met Office, “and we often keep tabs on how audiences react to certain plot points - deaths of characters, births, weddings, surprise regenerations, etc. We’ve been very worried about the Sherlock finale since the end of Series 2, after which we experienced a huge rise in water levels across the country as gallons of tears flooded from viewers’ eyes.”
“However, we believe that the end of Series 3 may well create an even greater flow of tears, and therefore we have deemed it proper to place flood warnings until the episode has finished.”
Advice from the Met Office on how to avoid the flooding includes:
Avoid going outside
Avoid bridges or running water
If at all possible, avoid watching the episode
Avoid people who have already watched the episode
One plucky fan from Aberystwyth has devised an ingenious solution to stay safe on Sunday.
“I’ve lined my living room with tissues” said Gwyneth Jones, 21 “creating a protective layer of absorbing paper. The floor has tissues of a depth of up to 3 feet, and the walls are more tissue than stone.”
“I can now cry all I like, and be afforded the peace of mind that the tissues will soak up any water that poses a threat to my house or the community.”
Showrunner Steven Moffat has released a statement saying that “all the tissues and flood barriers in the world won’t protect you from what’s coming, Britain. We will drown together.”
