how can you look at artina moments like this and not be ridiculously happy?
Whats this bout some sherlollians hating on molstrade. My lil’ sis ships the hell out of them and she says some people disgaree with it as he’s married and he shouldn’t even look at Molly. True, but from an outsider non shipper he seems unhappy with his marriage the poor bloke. Anyway I’ll get to the real point, some of you have apparently said if molly does get with lestrade it’s ’lazy writing’ from moftiss, which upset my sis as she likes sherlollians and visits this tag often.
Is this true?
That awkward moment where I ship both of these?? o__0 Anyway, just some words on Greg Lestrade…
In “Scandal”, Lestrade tells Molly says that things with him and his wife are “all sorted”, which is why he is still in London for the party and not Dorset like he originally informed her. This means yes he is married, but they’ve been having trouble and recently reconciled. Yet Sherlock mentions that Mrs. Lestrade is sleeping with a gym teacher. In this episode, Lestrade is wearing his wedding ring.
Jump to “Hounds of Baskerville”, which takes place quite some time later, and you’ve got Lestrade “brown as a nut” from a vacation and distinctly NOT wearing his wedding ring. He’s got a tan line.
No other mention of his marriage is made in season 2, and the lack of ring is easy to miss. But considering a show that pays quite a bit of attention to detail, I’d say it’s entirely possible they’re building towards Lestrade parting from his cheating wife for good.
P.S. I’ve also seen a tumblr post that makes the argument that in “Study in Pink”, when Sherlock makes the comment about the pink woman being a serial adulterer due to her ring, Lestrade makes a face that suggests he has a realization about his own spouse.
TL;DR I don’t think that’s lazy writing.
