"One word, that's all I would've needed!"
Sure, this is about Sherlock…. this time. But seeing the deleted script about how John tried to keep in touch with Sholto but it wasn’t reciprocated… this line isn’t the first time he’s pleaded for one word, just one word of contact. This isn’t the first time he felt he was drowning, searching for the one person he loved most to reach back for him. How bad do you feel now?
