When I first saw this scene I was surprised that Mind Palace Moriarty listed Irene as one of the people who would cry over Sherlock’s death (I figured it would make more sense to include Molly in that slot).  However, after mulling it over, I concluded that there’s a deeper meaning to it.  When you consider who these people are to Sherlock or what they symbolically represent, this list has a pattern. 

First, Jim mentions Mrs. Hudson.  Mrs. Hudson has always been like a surrogate mother to Sherlock and, up until S3, she was the only mother figure in Sherlock’s life that we knew about.  So you could say that Mrs. Hudson is symbolic of parental love and affection.  Next on Jim’s list are Sherlock’s actual parents; they are the literal representation of parental love.

Then, the camera angle changes—this change further emphasizes how everyone is paired off (Mrs. Hudson/Sherlock’s parents, Irene/John)—and Jim lists Irene who, as many others have pointed out, is often the symbolic representation of romantic love and sex.  So, if we continue the pattern of symbolic love followed by literal love, what does John represent?

The more I think about it, the more I want Moriarty to engineer Sherlock revealing his love for John

canolacrush:

OH BUT WHAT IF

WHAT IF MORIARTY’S THE ONE WHO’S LIKE

"Oh, Sherlock, is it really so obvious that you would fall in love with such an ooooordinary boring little doctor?”

AND HE DOES IT LIKE RIGHT IN FRONT OF SHERLOCK AND JOHN

AND SHERLOCK DOESN’T DENY IT

JUST LIKE…CLOSES HIS EYES TRYING TO ESCAPE IT

AND JOHN’S JAW JUST DROPS

I mean, it’d be a good parallel for Irene being like “Yeah, you’re fucking in love with him” a la Battersea Station I don’t see why they wouldn’t go for exactly that because this show freaking LOVES parallels.

The song “Girls Chase Boys” came on the radio, and I really thought a lyric said two heads one beating heart

so this is where my brain went.

I was disappointed to find out that the lyric is actually “I got two hands, one beating heart.”

This is totally how that scene went

It’s a survival thing. I made a lot of devil’s bargains and I stuck to them. As a result I live somewhat dangerously and quite comfortably. And my mother, who no longer recognizes me, has the best room in the clinic. I get up every morning, put on my game face and do what I have to.

It’s weird, because he’s the only character on the show that I have felt an immediate and visceral hatred for.  I’ll try to dissect it a bit.  At the beginning of HLV, we jump back to John’s POV.  We’ve been with Sherlock for the first two episodes, and the return to John feels like a bit of relief.  Finally we see how John is handling all of these changes (not well), and I’m eager to follow John wherever he goes.  He took me through two series, and it’s nice to be back with him.

We get to the drug den, and there’s this loser junkie guarding the door.  How dare he not immediately tell John what he needs to know!  How dare he pull a knife!  John’s used to a better class of criminal!  Then this scum of the earth finds a way into the car, and, at the hospital, deduces John.  Who does he think he is?  By what right?
And none of this thinking is fair.  John assaulted Wiggins.  He sprained his arm for really no reason.  John’s sneering down at him from his high horse, like he has a right to judge him.  In so many ways, Wiggins is what Sherlock could have been.  If Sherlock didn’t have Mycroft, or loving parents, or a comfortable background, or, in this very specific instance, John.  Wiggins is the same self-medicating genius.  Sherlock’s just better dressed and has people who love him.
Damn it, now I like Wiggins.  This is what happens when I actually bother to analyze this show.

I love your thought that Sherlock could have been like Wiggins without Mycroft’s support, and I’m glad you changed your mind about Wiggins. I think he is quite a fun side character. The sequence where he deduces things about Sherlock is golden purely for Sherlock’s reactions. I am very curious to see whether or not Wiggins appears in series 4. Well, I’m curious about everything in series 4. So I guess that is just another piece of the long hiatus puzzle.
