I CAN’T HANDLE THIS KID AND THE AMOUNT OF WORK AND DEDICATION HE PUT INTO THIS CHARACTER FOR ONE EPISODE. MAKING SURE HE MADE TEEN!DEAN BELIEVABLE… STUDYING JENSEN’S MANNERISMS WHILE PLAYING DEAN AND THEN USING THEM AT ALL THE RIGHT TIMES… WATCHING ALL THOSE SEASONS IN A WEEK… LOOK AT THAT CRYING FACE, THAT IS JENSEN’S CRYING FACE. FUCKING KILL ME I LOVE THIS KID I FEEL LIKE A PROUD MAMA
ALSO HE DID THE JAW-THING

#okay i need a minute here #i LOVED this scene #because at first i thought all it was was a cheeky nod to canon #oh har har what if he’d lived 200 years ago isn’t that funny #but it’s not JUST that #this is something that seems to have genuinely kept him up at night #something he almost seems to long for; something he wishes he could know for certain #and it’s something deeply personal. he doesn’t just brush it off as bullshit like he did his anders reveal in 1x03 #(that we later learned was partially the truth in 2x04) #listen to how upset he gets when he says he never would’ve spoken up if he knew the meeting had been compromised by mycroft #this is such a difference from sherlock using his NA meetings to practice going into a trance state #such a difference from regaling everyone with the story of the blue carbuncle rather than talking about his addiction #and you know what broke my heart the most? #200 years ago? … he was still the same addict he is here.
He’s not the same addict, though. Elementary!Holmes did heroin, which is a opiate. He used it because the world is too noisy, and he needs to quiet it enough to focus. ACDcanon!Holmes did cocaine, which is a stimulant. The world was too quiet for him, and his brain turned over and over on itself without anything to occupy it.
They’re both addicts, yes, but they are not the same. And that’s why I like this scene.
