The horrible moment when you realize that Sherlock’s eyes were open the entire time John was kneeling there. And with the angle his head was in, he could actually see John, not only hear him. He had to have been conscious to keep his eyes open, so he would have seen John fall apart. Oh god, this is cruel.
I honestly feel worse for Sherlock than I do for John. At least John has the sense of closure that comes from thinking Sherlock’s dead, he has the supportive network, has a chance to move on with his life. Sherlock’s lost everything with that fall, and he gets to live with the knowlege of the pain he’s causing.
Just take my heart
Well, technically you can be unconscious with your eyes open… but I agree about feeling worse for Sherlock.
I’ve been murdered.
