What I really need to see is the brilliant John Watson, Consulting Doctor/ Medical Examiner:
And his cuddly sidekick, forensic technician, and blogger Sherlock Holmes:
I NEED THIS! LIKE AIR!
HOLY FUCK I NEED

Hi forgot to tell you that i love reading your posts! In TSoT, in the bench scene ,Sherlock refers to Sholto as John's "previous commander" Is he really then implying that he, Sherlock, is John's current commander?
Thanks! And HELL yeah. I so love that conversation. They both clearly know exactly what Sherlock meant, and he corrects himself so quickly.
SHERLOCK: So why don’t you see him any more? (We’re obviously meant to see a parallel between Sherlock and Sholto, and we’ve already seen Sherlock’s jealousy in his conversation with Mary – “bouncing around him like a puppy.” We also know Sherlock is “terrified” about the wedding, because he knows things will change and he won’t have John in his life any more. So the meaning behind this question is clear – he’s afraid of becoming a part of John’s past, and he wants to know why it happened with Sholto.)
JOHN: Who? (Sherlock brings this up out of nowhere. They’re staring at the guards, and his mind jumped from guard to soldier to John.)
SHERLOCK: Your previous commander, Sholto. (Err….)
JOHN: “Previous commander”. (Love how John picks up on it right away. Even more than that, I love how he seems amused by it.)
SHERLOCK (briefly closing his eyes awkwardly): I meant “ex”. (Not much better – “ex” is loaded with meaning too, in terms of relationships.)
JOHN: “Previous” suggests that I currently have a commander. (He’s so not letting Sherlock off the hook, it’s great.)
SHERLOCK: Which you don’t.
JOHN: Which I don’t.
SHERLOCK (with a small smile): ’Course you don’t. He was decorated, wasn’t he? A war hero.
Fast forward to the end of the episode…
JOHN: What do I do?
SHERLOCK: You’ve already done it.
Standing at attention, ready and willing.
No current commander my ass, John.
