People are so dumb, Sherlock was comforting Watson because his wife just died and he was feeling uber guilty. They're not gay he people! They are best friends. Those are two completely different things.
*Sherlock spoilers* Drunken Sherlock's deductions is something I didn't know I wanted until that episode. It was probably the most hilarious Sherlock scene of all time. I died laughing! <--- HONESTLY THOUGH!!!!!!! Like new favorite thing ever.
