“I Love You.”
“What is the worst thing you could do to your very best friends? Tell them your darkest secret.”
“I love you.”
I think this was the moment that hit every fan hard. The final moment of the trailer is so meaningful and important for the series and we all went crazy. Yes, you too. I know you did!
First, let’s remind ourselves of what Sherlock has always said: that “emotions are a chemical defect found on the losing side.” What would cause him to admit that he loves someone? Well, if he had to shoot either his brother or his best friend, that would probably do it…
So which one is he talking to? Personally, I think it is to both of them. As a final farewell to the one he is about to shoot and the true reason for why he is not about to shoot the other.
Yes, guys, we might be heading into Johnlock territory here.
The evidence that Moffat and Gatiss are planning to put Sherlock and John together has been building for a while. For instance, in ‘His Last Vow’ when Sherlock told John: “There is something I’ve always wanted to tell you but I never did.” In the end, he joked that Sherlock “was actually a girl’s name” but we know that’s not what he really intended to say.
It looks like, when faced with another, more permanent, parting, Sherlock finally admits that, yes, he is in love with John Hamish Watson.
But let’s go back to that scene where Sherlock is crying with the gun in his hand. Notice that Mycroft is still behind him but John is not. You don’t think this means… You don’t think he shot… John, do you?
God, I really hope that he was talking to John and that both of them somehow manage to get out of there.
I’ve only listed the things that appeared important to me.
