could Sherlock have fallen for Mary

-First word when recovering : " Mary"
-"give Mary my love"
-Killing Magnussen who blackmails Mary

Of course, all that can be seen as made in the name of friendship, for John.

But, did it cross someone else's mind that Sherlock fell for john's wife, and that's a reason why he's accepting exile?

Re: could Sherlock have fallen for Mary

Well... nope.

You've said it yourself, the way I see it, he did all these things for John Watson. It's more than obvious to me that he said "Mary" in hospital as a warning and certainly not because he's in love with her.

Re: could Sherlock have fallen for Mary

"Could Sherlock have fallen for Mary"?

Only if she tripped him.

Re: could Sherlock have fallen for Mary

He says "Mary" when he wakes up in the hospital because his last memory is of Mary trying to kill him http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
.

To be honest, I'd never even thought of him falling for Mary, and I find it really difficult to see it.  I think he initially likes her as an extension of John (and she does come across as likeable initially).   That would be a really, big unexpected suprise for S4 if it happened!  I hope not.

Re: could Sherlock have fallen for Mary

I always understood "Mary" as a kind of "Rache-l" - a one-word-hint to find the murderer.
Not a declaration of love - the opposite

"Give Mary my love" - a common and not necessarily committal phrase. Isn't it, native speakers?
Not a declaration of love either.

Re: could Sherlock have fallen for Mary

I can't see Sherlock falling for anyone. He didn't even really fall for Irene Adler - she confused him and he was fascinated by her intellect, but I got the impression that she was more a riddle to solve for him than someone he loved. I think he feels more for Molly and whatever that is, it's not romantic love either. More respect for her feelings.
I think he already likes Mary as much as it is possible for him.

Re: could Sherlock have fallen for Mary

I think he don´t like her anymore after she shot him and put him through all that incredible suffering.
He puts up with her because he must.

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Sorry? About what? The suggestion that it could be or the other opinions?

I feel the same. The scene with both of them at the tarmac never seemed sincere to me.

About the suggestion that he could have fallen for Mary just because he said her name when he woke up.... I mean, he came back for life to save John Watson, and yet what gets noticed is that he said Mary's name... it's absolutely insane to me.

Likewise. Sherlock does NOT say things like 'that's my girl' - unless that's Moffat making his character go OOC just to try and convince us that they've forgiven Mary and are BFFs now. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/stoned.png

I do not agree with the above theory either but laughing hard at other members' theories could indeed be regarded as disrespectful.

That was exactly why I asked, Susi.

I know, you are right. I honestly didn't mean to be respectful. I just chuckled when I thought about the idea of Sherlock falling for Mary, I wasn't laughing at the user.

Re: could Sherlock have fallen for Mary

In such cases it might be best to have a good laugh but don't write about it?

Why? It's my reaction to that idea? I did say I didn't mean disrespect, and I don't. I just imagined it and chuckled, that's all. I never said I thought the OP was stupid for having posted it. I thought I could say it, but yeah, I won't next time.

Re: could Sherlock have fallen for Mary

If Sherlock had really disliked Mary after the shooting he would have had an easy time to get rid of her. And his first words after shooting Magnussen are "Tell Mary she is safe now". Not "You and Mary are safe now". He is also smiling at her on the tarmac.

Re: could Sherlock have fallen for Mary

But the question was not if he likes Mary but if he falls in love with her.
