He’s not a sociopath, nor is he high-functioning. He’d really like to be a sociopath. But he’s so fucking not. The wonderful drama of Sherlock Holmes is that he’s aspiring to this extraordinary standard. He is at root an absolutely ordinary man with a very, very big brain. He’s repressed his emotions, his passions, his desires, in order to make his brain work better — in itself, a very emotional decision, and it does suggest that he must be very emotional if he thinks emotions get in the way. I just think Sherlock Holmes must be bursting!

Because that’s where they sit. The people that come in here with their stories. The clients. That’s all you are now, Mary. You’re a client. This is where you sit and talk and this is where we sit and listen. Then we decide if we want you or not

This scene hit me in so many ways. It felt like a salute to the entire show. No not even the show, everything about Sherlock Holmes. A reminder of what this really all comes down to. That at the lowest of low, the worst of the worst, they resort to the only thing they’ve come to understand completely. What all the adaptations of the show, and the book itself were created to have. What it was born to do. Its becomes a case. It becomes a story.
