Somethimes I choose to lose.
Moments when his face shows sentiment. Only when he’s alone or taken aback. Inspired by ”Sentiment is a chemical defect found in the losing side” and “I imagine John Watson thinks love’s a mystery to me, but the chemistry is incredibly simple and very destructive” and of course Benedict’s acting.
*As a note, for this episode I wish I could do the “fake sentiment” analysis too, because Benedict makes Sherlock become a solid rock, alive only for the game, using feelings and mimic to get things from others. And in those final scenes … I think the palette of feelings is just …you know what I’m talking about so I’ll just stop. There.
