Charles MagnussenThere’s nothing to be done. Oh, I’m not a villain. I have no evil plan. I’m a businessman, acquiring assets…

Bilbo in The Desolation Of Smaug
„He’s certainly different to the one you meet in Bag End. He’s less scared of his own shadow. By necessity he has to take the bull by the horns.”
If you can’t clearly see that Mary Morstan is a dangerous, divisive threat to both John and Sherlock, or that Sally Donovan is a peevish harridan and a shill for Moriarty, or that Mrs. Hudson assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in 1914 and sparked a series of events that would lead to the first World War, or that Irene Adler is an irresponsible cyborg butler with a magnet gambling problem, or that Soo-Lin Yao stole antique lobster traps from Whitney Houston, or that Anthea originally wrote “Blurred Lines” to be played on the theremin, or that Ella Thompson shoves her hands into the bins of dried lentils at Whole Foods, or that Janine steals furniture from dinner parties, or that Mrs. Holmes is an angry Malayan sun bear with twelve honorary doctorates, or that Sarah Sawyer invented centipedes, or that Molly Hooper is a freshwater mermaid with gang-related prison tattoos, then bro, I want to know what peyote you’re smoking, because we are not even watching the same show.
John walking in wearing his old uniform bein like “it doesn’t fit like it used to” and Sherlock being like
ive been staring at this longer than i should… imagining one is benedict’s and i just……………………
Sherlock tries to keep a straight faced and look unamused, but he can’t help grinning, and kisses John after he’s removed the dribble of ice cream.
Or, Moriarty’s Dead But Not Gone (Hooray!)
There’s a lot of John-related angst over HLV (How did he decide to stay with Mary? Why doesn’t he seem to care about Sherlock like he used to?) and lots of plot-related skepticism (Why did Mary shoot Sherlock? How does he understand this as saving his life when he actually flatlined? Magnussen was *really* that influential without ever needing proof? What was his goal anyway, just “power”?).
I get a general sense of disappointment or betrayal: How could they end it this way?
I think the answer might be: They didn’t. And they told us so.

These incredibly photorealistic self-portraits are the work of Spanish painter Eloy Morales. Eloy is one of the best hyperrealistic painters in the world, not only are his paintings photographic in quality but they possess a kind of life to them. Tricking the viewer into thinking they are actually looking at photographs.
actually if you look closely at magnussen while watching that scene, he was actually reaching for something on the floor and makes sure that mary wont turn around to see him do it
