Re: Still unexplained secrets?

I just think a lot of it is stress on Mycroft's part...he's had a hell of a life.

Re: Still unexplained secrets?

I think it's in the nature of sibling rivalry that it would be natural to feel some resentment if your brother was the obvious favourite.   I wouldn't blame if he did sometimes feel it (although, as I say, it's not something we really see much of).   We do see how much they care for each other in TFP, despite the resentments.

Re: Still unexplained secrets?

But Mycroft does also mentions "old scores" - what could he indicate with that?

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?

Re: Still unexplained secrets?

If he's not just deflecting John, then I think probably more of the same - the sibling rivalry.   Sherlock seems to so easily wound up by Mycroft and starts acting like a teenager - I bet they have had many arguments that we haven't seen.  If Mycroft gets overprotective, Sherlock tends to rebel against him, so making his concern evident maybe isn't the best way to safeguard him. 

But I'm still bearing in my mind that Mycroft needs to put John off the scent.  He's claiming that he can't talk to Sherlock because of these old scores, but at some point he must have worked closely with him on planning the fall.

That´s a good point!

Re: Still unexplained secrets?

That is certainly a possibility.
