Re: The Sign of Three Picture Thread

And I couldn't stop laughing when I read one of the first comments on tumblr regarding this exact moment: "That's when John broke Sherlock". http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

It really seems as if he's incapable of 'functioning' for about a minute. Endearing and tragic at the same time.

Re: The Sign of Three Picture Thread

You are right, Solar. That is a situation when Sherlock completely lost controll. What would you do if something happens that you never thought of to be possible?

Re: The Sign of Three Picture Thread

I adore that scene; it was a glimpse of humanity I feel; Sherlock's tough shell of a facade was broken for those 'few' moments and he had no idea what to do!

Oh, but..... it's not entirely about Mary, is it? Okay, alright, John is marrying her, but he wants Sherlock to be there with him as well so badly...! Asking Sherlock to be his best man feels to me as if John were asking Sherlock to marry him. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

You would doubt if it is real and try to verify or falsify it by asking questions. Something like " Where are we going?; Some sort of party? Who's the host?" (quotes from The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes where Sherlock is actually invited by Mycroft with customary arrogance but mistaken and fooled by a woman)  And I don't think that meta-Holmes was ever Dr. Watson's best man in the history of pastiches. Or was he? So his actual mistrust is certainly understandable. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: The Sign of Three Picture Thread

I think I would stand there like Sherlock did. Absolutely stunned and not able to do anything...

Re: The Sign of Three Picture Thread

And I don't think it's mistrust. He's unable to comprehend the meaning of it all.

Re: The Sign of Three Picture Thread

I think Sherlock is be arrogant and overly sure of his intellectual brilliance while at the same time totally unaware of other people's positive feelings towards him. Most people have been hostile or dismissive towards him (not without reason). Just think of the cab scene in ASiP. Or his "I don't have friends". This was not the drugs speaking. And when John tells him that he is his best friend despite of how much he hurt him Sherlock is simply overwhelmed and does not trust his self-image anymore.

Re: The Sign of Three Picture Thread

Yes, that's perhaps a better way to describe it. I didn't mean that he doesn't trust John but that he is not sure if he can trust his own interpretation when it comes to "being involved".

Re: The Sign of Three Picture Thread

Yes, it is a sign of his insecurity. His self-confidence fails the moment he is forced to recognise his own emotions and cope with them. A thing he has to learn.

Re: The Sign of Three Picture Thread

Isn't it what a sociopath feels or rather not feels? What he can't cope with?

Re: The Sign of Three Picture Thread

Sorry, not my division. I do not know the exact definition of sociopathy but I think that Sherlock mainly uses the term to protect himself.

At the end he tries, goes to the wedding, makes a vow and ends being a murderer alone on a plane to nowhere.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cry.png

Re: The Sign of Three Picture Thread

Was this really necessary, Be? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/sad.png

Seriously, he is still in the process of learning. He let his feelings could his mind and he did not deduce important things about Mary and Magnussen. He will have to find a way to coordinate the emotional and intellectual elements of his character.

If we look at the "sweet" and bright side of the coin we also have to acknowledge his dark and dangerous side. Series 3 explores the extremes.
