[John studies the dead body with his medical eye and nods.]
The blood under the fingernails is purple.....but why not call Sherlock in?
Why just me Molly.
Sherlock asked you for more corpses again didn't he.
[John sighs and shakes his head as he continues to look over the body.]
No defense wounds. Where was this woman found again?
It's about Tom isn't it?
[John sighs as he looks closer at the woman's feet.]
Sherlock seems to be on a roll with trying to ruin relationships.
This woman was in his homeless network.
Her feet actually. I treated them for cold sores and frostbite and I can
recognize my own bandage work.
Well it saved him from pointing out how much like Sherlock himself Tom
looked. I warned him not to be rude.
He is actually......Jim's back. You know the strange meme thing that popped
up all over town.
And I know you didn't do it on purpose....it's a mental thing. I've done it
once or six.
He did....and a body was found. But someone had to have access to the
networks....and the willingness to use Jim to make a point.
Or someone Jim trained. I knew a man in the army.....damm good sniper with
a ruthless streak worse then mine. Moran his name was.
Lost track of him after I was wounded but at the pool Jim was using sharp
shooters and I kept thinking of him.
He always struck me as the type who chose all his companions with care
Molly. He's the only one of Sherlock's enemies who never discounted me.
Magenson called me an idiot in a roundabout way but Jim....never did that.
Yes he did.
[John smiles back, he likes Molly and honestly thinks she'd be good for
Sherlock more then made up for it by including you on the Fall.
[John is still slightly bitter about that bit. He really had through he'd
meant more to Sherlock then that.}
I understand that now Molly...but it doesn't mean I have to like it.
Did you see him....during that time...was he alright? He came back looking
a little thinner.
