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

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.
