OH GOD, TOO MANY FEELS ALL IN ONE GO.
This scene. I cry right along with him. At the end. I cry along with him. TOO MANY FEELS DURING THIS MOVIE.
What if the Starks didn’t make stupid decisions? x
“Okay, I won’t trust you then”

ALL OF THE WANT
I love her “Ha. No.” and I’m still cross with him.
I mean, she told him that she isn’t a surgeon anymore and that she doesn’t trust herself using a scalpel. He propably tries to help her to overcome her fears and he surely wanted to tell/show her that it is now her turn to face the demons of the past, but… forgodssake!
You just can’t hand the scalpel over to her!
We are not having a moment!
I love this gifset. I love the evolution of his expression in each from “give it a go!” to “no, really, I politely insist” to “I will stop this car and turn around if you don’t do as I ask.”
and for her, in the first two she’s not taking it seriously, because OBVIOUSLY he would never ask. and when it becomes clear he really is, that glorious definitive NO.
And then separate from each is the conductor of light, that is the glowing scalpel. A friend pointed out to me that it’s illuminated only when in front of her, not when we see it with him. I interpret this to mean that they are each that conductor for the other, and while they’re not there yet, at some point his lack of genius will spark hers as well.
I caught, of course, the moment later on where she was not impressed with that whole “conductor of light” business. Yay, Watson! (I also was never impressed with that conductor of light business. The way ACD!Watson never seemed to mind such humiliations and insults was one of the reasons I never enjoyed the stories when I was younger.)
But I love this reinterpretation: Holmes is the conductor of light for Watson’s genius. God, I love this show.
