“Actually, do you know what, ignore me.”
John. John Watson. He just killed a man to save me from myself. Who does that? God.
Look at him: he’s not like an ordinary man. He just shot someone and he’s perfectly fine. Not a hair out of place. He’s just standing there with those nerves of steel, those steady hands, he’s playing innocent, standing on the other side of the tape like he’s uninvolved. He thinks I won’t figure it out, he thinks I won’t know. He’s not ashamed of it or proud of himself; he just did what he thought was right. He didn’t even do it to impress me; he’s not trying to make a point, he’s not demonstrating his usefulness to me. He’s not going to hold it over my head, either. Is he. He found his way here just to protect me. Gratis. As if that’s completely natural.
Natural for him, maybe. Yes. Completely natural for him. My hidden jewel: John Watson. How could I have been so blind?
I would be dead by now without him. I chose the wrong pill. I was wrong twice tonight. A true failure of an evening, by all accounts: two massive failures of observation, more if you count the details. It doesn’t matter: we’re both still here. Second chance: I’m paying attention to you now, John Watson. I see it all in you now.
He came after me, even after I told him I was married to my work. Even after I left him and ran off on my own, twice. I wonder if there’s a way to revisit that conversation, hmm. Not really an area in which I have any real expertise. Is that what he wants? How does one go about doing that?
I thought he was ordinary. I didn’t know what I was dealing with. Unfair! He was hiding in plain sight. He thinks of himself as ordinary, so he appears to be ordinary. To the naked eye, at least. But he’s not. Most definitely not. His hands aren’t even shaking, not even now. Look at that.
Oh, I’m keeping him.

Amanda Abbington has revealed that she recently underwent surgery to remove a lump from her breast.
Martin Freeman’s longtime girlfriend was informed of the need for surgery for the lump - which was ultimately benign - during the actor’s 18-month shoot for The Hobbit movies in New Zealand.
The Sherlock star wanted to come back to the UK to be with his partner, but the actress insisted that he continued his work.
“I said I’d be fine, but he was desperately worried. It was horrible for him,” Abbington is quoted as saying in The Mirror.
“I found the lump after dropping the kids at school. I was sent to a specialist breast unit. They said they needed to get it out quickly because they didn’t know if it was malignant. I burst into tears and thought, ‘Oh no. I’m going to die. I won’t see my children grow up’.”
Abbington said that she cried tears of joy when she was told that the lump was a benign milk gland tumour.
“When I got the result I burst into tears of sheer relief. What happened has made me value my life so much. Work is great, of course, but your family and health really are everything,” she continued.
Abbington added that Freeman made sure to send her his own support despite being many miles away.
“I was at home one day when a package from Martin arrived. He sent me a beautiful bracelet and ring with a note saying he hoped it would cheer me up. How wonderful is that? I’m lucky to be with someone as romantic now as he was when we met 12 years ago.”
Freeman and Abbington have been together since the year 2000, and are parents to two children, Joe and Grace.source:[X]
