OK you know how every episode of Sherlock has foreshadowing?
OK remember this scene:
And now,Season 3
Look at Mary’s jeans…
And look where Sherlock’s gaze falls…..
I want to believe in this!
Mary makes a point of drawing our attention to the jeans.
Conclusion: Mary is *definitely* not the father.

i realised something earlier because of that text post mia made (please forgive me if someone has already pointed this out)
the scene in ‘the sign of three’ where sherlock tries to imply he is john’s commander rang a faint bell with me when i first saw it, and it’s taken me until now to realise why
i suddenly remembered about the last scene in ‘the reichenbach fall’ after mrs hudson has left and john is alone with the grave. he says his bit, then he walks away. but before walking away, we saw him do this
and we saw him do this
and so did sherlock. this importance of this is explained better in this chunk of text from tvtropes.org:
"At Sherlock’s grave, before finally walking away, John’s quick-turn is how a lower ranking officer would leave the presence of a higher one after being dismissed. The whole time, consciously or unconsciously, John has viewed Sherlock as his superior officer, someone he needs to trust and take orders from in order to make their friendship/crime solving work.”
Canonical evidence that John regards Sherlock as his higher ranking/commanding officer.
Never forget this.
that he needs that kind of relationship (I’m my opinion) to feel secure. maybe thats one of the reason’s his one month marriage to Mary wasn’t working. he couldn’t get that same feeling.
that need of having the important person in his life being his ‘superior officer’ in the relationship
I will never get tired of watching this. x
can you believe this is a real thing that really happened. he honestly did this. and filmed it. he showed us his shower. and his grey pants. bless this man.

You know what will break your heart?
Realizing that if John had had any idea that Sherlock was still alive, he would have waited for him.
One word, Sherlock. One word, that’s all I would have needed.
Don’t care. Tjlc.
