Sherlock and John are summoned in Buckingham palace and Sherlock is nude under his bedsheet. This moment leads to lots of giggles in my family. Moreover Mycroft’s reaction to this fact is priceless: he acts as the oustrageous one with reasons. Sherlock is supposed to be polite and courteous when it deals with the Royal Family.
I adore the scene when Irene is first introduced to Sherlock. She succeeds in stunning him with success. Not everyone can surprise the famous sleuth in such a graceful way! He can’t speak several moments. She impresses Sherlock and she is obviously attracted by him as well.
Irene outsmarts Sherlock in her bedroom and I loved the dream scene. It is one of the best in the show. I think the Sherlock team has done an amazing job while filming this one. They proved they are among the best of the best!
When we discover Sherlock’s ringtone for Irene’s messages. I think Irene’s intent is quite clear. She wants him in his bed as well as seducing him.
I really loved the moment when Sherlock composes a song for Irene. This short moment is so romantic! Music allways swhow what leads your heart and what you feel. Sherlock has obviously strong feelings for Irene. Besides I love the piece he compses for Irene, it is great music.
When Sherlock saves Mrs. Hudson from those American spys. He shows that no one touches what he loves the most. Then we see how good actress the landlady is. She fools men with talent just in making them believe she is just an old woman.
The moment when Irene and Sherlock are alone in his livingroom. This scene is so hot. Basically she invits him in her own bed as well as a lovely date before. When their hands touch I think it is like Sherlock accepts his feelings for Irene definitively. They don’t need words to tell to each other their feelings.
When we discover Irene’s password for her phone. In this scene we see directly in Irene’s heart and Sherlock displays once again his brilliance. Moreover we can see Sherlock’s disappointment. Plus he is like he would have loved being with her lover yet he still have hopes for them. I think this is why he wants Irene to plead to get his help. Just to prove she has feelings for him and she is a valuable case. It might sound sexist but it isn’t. They are a couple and they challenge their couple. This is their way to prove they are true to their feelings.
When we discover Sherlock saves Irene in karachi. We don’t need to put wors on this scene. He admits he loves her and she is pleased to see him here. She needs help just like everyone to be able to save herself from this mess. Actually Irene needs a man’s help in order to save herself just like in the book. In this regard, Moffat and Gatiss have respected the book. Actually, they didn’t put Irene as a dominatrix in order to low her. Yet they showed she uses this job to cover her spy-like activities. She is used and she has powerful clients for sex but more importantly for her precious informations.
The scenes when John tries to understand what happens In Sherlock’s heart. It reminds me the book!Watson. Actually he is used as a sort of psychologist for the reader/watcher. He is created to help us to understand what is in Sherlock’s head.
When John convinces Irene to warn Sherlock she is alive. In this scene John acts as a therapeutist. He has allways been a therapeutist for Sherlock anytime. He helps Sherlock to undersatnd what relations are and how good they are for people. We can say John opens Sherlock’s heart to others and he helps Sherlock to understand what feelings and emotions are. That’s why he wants so badly to see Sherlock happy with Irene and by letting Sherlock know Irene is alive.
When Mycroft helps Sherlock to understand Iren’s game with him. This is a great moment when we see Mycroft is actually a sort of teacher for Sherlock. He is far cleverer than Sherlock and we see that fact in this scene. Mycrofts reminds Sherlock all his mistakes towards relations and helps him to understand a woman’s heart. This statement doesn’t lower Sherlock at all. Yet I state Sherlock is still a newbie in the world of feelings.
The morgue’s scene is quite good. Holmes’ Brothers show they share a strong bond even though they seem to argue all the time. They aren’t children and talk about relations and emotions. They have such a deep talk! They tell truths about their own world but they talk as well about average people. Indeed Sherlock as the mind of a great philosopher. They love talking about those subjects obviously. Holmes are so profound.
All in all
A Scandal in Belgravia is a masterpiece in romance as well in mystery. Irene and Sherloc form a great couple and the creator how strong andd clever this woman is. Moreover we discover new aspects of Sherlock’s heart and Sherlock is able to understand more human relations. He isn’t the cold-hearted person anymore but he fells something close to love and admiration towards a woman.
