Lucifer, you’re my brother and I love you.
Imagine filming it..
Moriarty straps John to a bomb and we’re like: damn. you better not hurt John.
Magnussen flicks John’s face and we’re like: HOWDAREYOUYOUEVILLESTOFEVILMEN oh my god you deserve the title Sherlock gave you. You are the Umbridge of Sherlock someone throw a chair at him where is the lady when we need her to put bullets into his chest?!
I think, more than anything else, it’s about disrespect. To have John Watson, Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers, have to sit there and take something so degrading as a schoolyard taunt is awful to witness. Being strapped to a bomb by Moriarty was a thumb in the eye to Sherlock but emphasized John’s importance. Magnussen is proving right here that John is absolutely without importance and it’s heartbreaking to watch.
They had to stop filming because Martin got pissed off
