I've just checked and it's the scene where Sherlock's playing the violin by the window just after he's identified Irene's body.  There's an open Bible next to John's chair on a stand.

I think there is more going on with them than just friends.  She slapped him 3 times.  Can you imagine going up to a friend and doing that?  I think something has happened between them and he has shocked and disappointed her by using drugs again so the slaps were uncontrolled emotions from her.

I've only ever seen Sherlock being interested in Irene due to the interesting case she poses.  He is intrigued by her and he does not like to be beaten. He saves her out of respect for how well she played the game.

Molly is different.  There are so many instances now where he looks at her with such emotion.  He usually keeps himself in check though and hides it brilliantly which leads me to believe he has something to hide with regards to her.

He never looks at or treats Irene with underlying emotions. He composes a tune which can be taken as him having feelings for her but I see it more as him composing as an outlet to deal with having to grow emotionally during the case anyway and not because he is in love with her.

A very telling scene for me is when he goes to view the body with Mycroft. He shows no emotion when he sees it and even asks Mycroft if he ever thinks 'there's something wrong with us? '  This proves to me that Sherlock is wondering why he can feel nothing towards seeing someone he knows with their face bashed up.

Now Mycroft is very perceptive.  He says 'caring is not an advantage' therefore we must presume he believes Sherlock has become emotionally compromised to the extent he calls John about a 'danger night'.

So, if Mycroft has seen something to worry him, what could it be?

If you watch the morgue scene again Sherlock does show emotion when he looks at Molly. It's just after she says everyone else was 'busy with Christmas'. This takes him back to the scene in Baker Street where he has just embarrassed her and he is genuinely upset about it.

Sherlock's emotional side is triggered by John and Molly mainly which means Molly counts.

I've never shipped him with Irene because she has proven she would screw him over to get ahead of the game. Molly will do anything for him and he now knows it.

This has been longer than I intended so I will just say one last thing.

When Sherlock sees Irene in his mind palace he tells her to get out and the mo

The scenes in HLV were absolutely cringeworthy.  He kept his mouth shut during the kiss too. Imagine if he hadn't she would have had her tongue down there in a second.

I feel she was presented as one of these women who date famous people so they can sell a story about them later. We can argue that she only did it for revenge but I think it was always her endgame. 

She played the game and got exactly what she wanted from it. I don't feel sorry for her regarding Sherlock but she was probably desperate for a way out from working for Magnussen. She has my full sympathies for that.

It looks to me that John is imagining Sherlock in that seat next to him and feeling so lonely that he isn't. Then Sherlock is imagining being back with John but he is behind the glass and it is his barrier.

Sherlock can see John but John cannot see Sherlock. For John, Sherlock is dead and there is no hope for anything else....cries uncontrollably....

On Sherlock's side of the glass there is a ghostly reflection of John, as though he carries him with him always but he is unable to reach out and make the image real. He must still talk to ghost John even if it is only in his head. Sherlock's path is transparent, to himself, but he longs to be on the other side of the glass wall which he has erected between them.

I feel the need to post this on Tumblr now!
