I’m sure that Mrs. Hudson’s husband committed a great number of crimes in order to get sentenced to death. From the way she flinches when Sherlock slams his hands on the table, I’d say it’s safe to bet that one of his many crimes was spousal abuse.
That would certainly account for why Sherlock ensured his execution.
And why Sherlock got so enraged when he saw that she had been hurt
And why she acted as if she were perfectly fine when she was hurt.
wow can we not
And why she was able to remain calm and still sneak the phone out and why Sherlock knew she would be okay despite John’s worrying - because she’s been through worse and persevered.
And why he didn’t want her to leave England. He wouldn’t be able to keep an eye out on her.
And why he got so mad at Mycroft for telling her to shut up because her husband also abused her verbally.
I’ve already reblogged this once but I have to reblog it again because of the new comments about mycroft.
and it overall explains why as a general rule, YOU DO NOT TREAT MRS. HUDSON POORLY or you will FACE THE WRATH OF SHERLOCK HOLMES.
OH. MY. GOD.
BEST. PRESIDENT. EVER.
SWEET LORD ALL MIGHTY WOW
#can we just stop and appreciate Harry’s face in this scene? #I mean, he’s literally waiting for someone to say something about Hermione’s blood status #she’s the only Muggleborn in the slug club full of purebloods and well known people #and Harry’s there just like “say something I dare you” #and if you look at her face, you can see the actual hesitation and somewhat fear of what will happen next after telling of her parents occupation #Harry truly is acting like Hermione’s big brother, which I absolutely love #i just adore this scene
