Tonnaree; Yes, that's right. I had thought too quickly and had "forgotten" about the drugs and the fact that he was, indeed, dying way before John hit him.
Then, like I said, I understand John's reaction (i don't support, but I understand and I don't judge as it would be the pot calling the kettle black), though this time it was very extreme.
And of course, Sherlock didn't do anything to stop him, that was the whole point. I understand that too.
But I don't know.
In TEH, I could forgive John easily. I'm not saying Sherlock deserved it, but after all, he had lied to John and had let him grieve two whole years.
In this ep, ok, I can acknowledge that the moment John beats Sherlock, he is convinced Sherlock is responsible for Mary's death. Ok.
But when he realised it wasn't the case, the least he could do was apologise to John! And not just saying it wasn't his fault Mary died.
I can understand violence when you are under such a stress, I can, I swear, but it doesn't change the fact violence is NOT right.
If John doesn't apologize properly to Sherlock for having beaten him up, it'd feel like violence is ok. Like "Oh, alright, John tells Sherlock he isn't responsible for Mary's death so all's well that ends well and we can move to something else!" Well, no, it's not fine. It wouldn't have been fine to beat Sherlock that bad even if he had hurt John in whatever way, but it's even worse to beat him when he hasn't done anything wrong, and not even apologize!
