Re: The missing months

Is it really that different? Normally TV shows provide us with a neat fantasy solution. This one didn't. It showed one of those questionable desicisons which are nevertheless somewhat understandable we deal every day with.

I don't think that the "not speaking" part was a problem. I bet at the beginning John took some time off to stay close to Sherlock. In my head-canon he temporary moved back to Baker Street under the pretense that it is closer to the hospital and he can take better care of his best friend this way. At the point he had to go back to work, Mary was the one with time off, because of her pregnancy.

Re: The missing months

I also thought that John had moved back to Baker Street during those missing months, and we just have to assume/imagine whatever conversation took place between he and Sherlock - taken at face value, as soon as he gets out of Hospital, Sherlock arranges John and Mary's reunion. It seemed to me they'd not seen each other for a while.

Re: The missing months

I just wrote a little analysis of how Steven Moffat dealt with the missing months and to what effect:

"To fake the death of one sibling may be regarded as a misfortune; to fake the death of both looks like carelessness." Oscar Wilde about Mycroft Holmes

"It is what it is says love." (Erich Fried)

“Enjoy the journey of life and not just the endgame. I’m also a great believer in treating others as you would like to be treated.” (Benedict Cumberbatch)

Re: The missing months

That sounds great. Will take a look at it soon. :-)

I still believe that love conquers all!

"Quick, man, if you love me."
