Does anybody else wish they had a scene where John talked to Molly?
OH MY, SO MUCH!
Just, imagine John the first time after Sherlock comes back that he sees her. Like. Him trying so hard, SO hard, to be at least a little angry at her.
John huffing and pacing and TRYING to be angry.
And Molly just standing there because She thinks she deserves it, because why wouldn’t she. She lied to him, for years, about the apparent death of his best friend in the world.
She lied to him when seeing him in the immediate after and then at the funeral. GOD the funeral, she looked him in the eyes and said “I’m sorry for your loss.” She kept a stiff upper lip mirroring him. But then he broke. He pulled her into a hug and said “I’m sorry for your loss, Molly.” and She just starts sobbing.
And she keeps apologizing. Because it’s all her fault. And he has lost so much because of her. And he thinks that she is crying for Sherlock, but she just feels so guilty about it all. And when They pull away he says something to the effect of “You meant so much to him.” And she presses her lips because She knows she is important. She’s bearing the cross of being important to Sherlock Holmes as they speak. And she wants to tell him but she can’t. Not without breaking every promise she made to Sherlock the night after the fall. So she lies to him for two years.
And she watches as his fume fizzles dead and he just sinks. And Molly is so confused until he looks at her and just says “Thank you, for keeping him safe.”
