A Clusterfuck of Psycho: Part 4
In which Jonathan Small isn’t the only brilliant, ruthless monomaniac who’s not in any photograph but can go anywhere at a wedding. And you never see his face.
This meta builds on theories presented in the first two parts, so it’s best to read those first if you haven’t already:
Part 1: The Empty Hearse Metaphor: Sex, Lies, and Videotape
Part 2: John or James Watson? I Am You…
Part 3: She Would’ve Needed a Confidante
I also recommend reading Sherlock’s Mind Palace: The Baker Street Room if you haven’t, because this builds on that a lot.
Warning: this is borderline crack theory, at least as much as my AGRA theory is. I wasn’t going to include it in this series, but then I realized it lifts out easily – aka, even if it’s totally false, it doesn’t mess with anything in the previous three metas.
Plus I just really, really want Jim to be a part of TSoT. And not just as a mirror.
So! Let’s talk about how Jim sent Sherlock a little wedding gift.
This is amazing! I’m a bit late to the analysis party, but I love how this particular post dovetails with LSiT’s wish that Jim sent Tessa to 221B just as things were getting sticky during Stag Night. Maybe Vicky urged Tessa to seek out Sherlock’s assistance via the message boards?
I also like to think about maybe sequences we weren’t shown during the MP deduction. Did Sherlock’s mind go back into the Baker Street Room even for just a moment?
