Why the fuck doesn’t this have eight million notes? Get it together, tumblr.
Are we going to talk about the fact that Joan has discussed that conversation with him?
We know she was angry and kept it all bottled up in the restaurant but when she finally got back to Sherlock she must have let lose about what Moriarty said. I’m guessing we caught the end of it in Gregson’s office.
I think she was especially mad about being called a mascot; that’s why he picks up on it in his confrontation with Moriarty, because it upset Joan the most, so he takes the thing that hurt her and throws it back in Moriarty’s face to prove Joan’s power, to use the insult as a tool of Joan’s power.
In writing everything is done with a purpose; there are no accidents. “The Mascot.” is it’s own sentence to truely emphasise Joan’s place in this world, because if you’ve made it through 24 episodes and still think Joan Watson is a sidekick, this scene proves you very much wrong.
This one line takes Sherlock and Joan’s equality and brands it into the very heart of the show: In Elementary, there’s no such thing as a sidekick.
partners who communicate are THE BEST.
In the sequence of the Rube Goldberg machine in the credits intro, the final event, which releases the cage that falls on the little tin man, is a hammer smashing into the bust of a woman. It bears a striking resemblance to Irene!
The sequence actually mirrors Moriarty’s plan to get to Sherlock: “Breaking” Irene in order to break Sherlock. It also underlines the way in which Irene Adler is an empty shell, a piece of art, and Moriarty’s best forgery to date…
Okay. Irene is Moriarty, you think she’s here to do something terrible, you have a hole in your shoulder; we have a dead assassin in the third floor of our home. So where would you like to start?
Ode to Spot - Data“Felis catus is your taxonomic nomenclature,
An endothermic quadruped, carnivorous by nature;
Your visual, olfactory, and auditory senses
Contribute to your hunting skills and natural defenses.
I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations,
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.
A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents;
You would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
And when not being utilized to aid in locomotion,
It often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.
O Spot, the complex levels of behavior you display
Connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array.
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.”
