I love that look when Sherlock just realizes.
#It’s the nerves of steel bit that always gets me. #Because he says it #and there’s John looking completely innocent #in his jumper next to a police car #all tidy and non-assuming #And Sherlock can just look and know #’I just described John Watson. My new friend.’ #and there was no turning back at that point for either of them.
#it’s when Sherlock just thinks #My god. I’ve only known this man for a day and a half and he has just killed a man for me #And he’s so surprised because no one has cared about him that much or done such a thing like this #and it confuses him #he doesn’t understand
I was going to say something. But then I re-read the tags. And impersonated the gif.
I used to feel like it took Sherlock forever to realize that it had to be John who shot the guy, and I used to be like, “YOU ARE SHERLOCK HOLMES. YOU ARE DESCRIBING YOUR FRIEND JOHN WATSON. REALIZE THIS.” And then I recognized that Sherlock had absolutely no reason to ever suspect that this man he’d just met would have killed a man for him. I feel like this is the moment when Sherlock thinks, “OMG, I have a friend. That man is my friend.”
This moment was when I knew I would love this show forever.
John’s sideways glance is so fantastic, very nothing to see here.
So, do you know his brother Dean Winchester died in St. Louis
…and was suspected of murder?
