John: Well, this could be very nice. Very nice indeed. Sherlock: Yes. Yes, I think so. My thoughts precisely. So I went straight ahead and moved in. John: Soon as we get all this rubbish cleaned out- Oh.
Mary's speech in Sherlock's mind.... an EMP interpretation
As a big fan of EMP, I’m still convinced we haven’t left Sherlock’s mind yet! This would mean that all of S4 takes place in Sherlock’s mind and belongs to his inner journey to become the man he wants to be!!
From this point of view the only remaining way to read this series is a symbolic and metaphoric one! This includes many many thoughts and ideas!! Many of them already pointed out by brilliant people!!! But for now I want to have a look at the final speech of Mary at the end of TFP inspired by this post of @gosherlocked!!!
I know this is a stiff subject, but still, I just want to share my thoughts…. So go on under the cut if you like to read a different and much more positive interpretation of Mary’s final words…
the scene where sherlock looks at the sky/stars and says “it’s beautiful isn’t it?” and john is like “i thought you didn’t care” and sherlock really isn’t fighting the urge to roll his eyes, because, that doesn’t mean he’s a cold hearted bitch but people still throw that to his face even after admitting something innocent like that
At the end of S4E3, when Mary is dead/gone and Mycroft has beed exposed in a dramatic grand finale, Sherlock stands in front of a cottage (perhaps Lower Machen, perhaps Southerndown), exhausted,
dishevelled and probably mildly injured. He’s wrapped in a bright orange shock blanket, murmuring, while looking at the house, equal parts fond and sad: “Now, wouldn’t that be nice?”
Theme music sets in, credits role. Until a panel appears with just the the one sentence on it:
“Some day the true story may be told.”
After that we fade back to the cottage…
… where John, also with a blanket around his shoulders, steps up beside Sherlock, takes his hand and replies while looking up at Sherlock: “That would be very nice. Very nice indeed.” And Sherlock fixes John with THAT gaze before leaning down but it’s not like the interrupted/faked Moriarty kiss - this time it’s for real, soft, if a bit clumsy.
Their noses bump and Sherlock has to hold onto John’s shoulders, thereby dropping his shock blanket, which leads to an inappropriate giggling fit, which in turn leads to more rather sloppy kissing (because they have to yet figure it out, what with all the height difference and stuble and John’s bad shoulder and so on).
When the camera pulls out we see some Yarders looking while SoCo’s in white overalls search the ground. Greg smiles and shakes his head and, as Sally Donovan steps up beside him, says: “We’d better upgrade their relationship status. Grade three active, I’d say.” At which Sally, who has been too busy coordinating the investigation, just looks a bit irritated and asks: “Sorry, Sir. Who’s status?” And Greg answers, tilting his head towards the two men still embracing: “Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson.”
character in general:I LOVE SHERLOCK! I used to be obsessed with the show when it was just season 1&2 but following you dragged me back into the sherlock madness. how they play them: Very nicely, Sherlock is a complicated character to portray, but you do him justice. the mun: We haven’t talked but you are chill af
follow them: Yes rp with them: Not yet want to rp with them: Yes
what is my;
overall opinion: very nice sherlock blog which is worth following!
**Note: Mun’s answer are all to be completely honest. Don’t send url if you don’t want brutal honesty.
John (about 221B): This could nice, very nice indeed.
Sherlock: Yes, yes I think so. My thoughts precisely
John is talking about the flat. He’s talking about the potential of living in 221B with Sherlock, once he gets all the rubbish cleared out. Sherlock already lives there, he knows how it’s like to live there and he knows the flat. He doesn’t have to make a guess on how nice it is. He’s saying that living with John could be very nice indeed. His thoughts precisely.
