Lately I’ve been
dreaming of mazes. I know,
it’s not a subtle metaphor.
Every night I run, and the strange
part is, it’s never you
chasing me down another
endless hallway. I see
friends, family, long-dead pets,
but you’re not there.
I’ve read about lucid dreaming.
I’d like to think I could
manage it, in theory- being aware,
taking control. In practice, sleep keeps me
from distancing myself.
If anything, I get too immersed, taking yet
another wrong turn. I fall hard.
If dreams are the opposite of distance,
you must be
simply too close to see.

I’ll admit it- there were parts of this week’s episode I didn’t like.
- I thought Joan was finally going to operate independently- and on a different sort of case too. I felt like the Tony plot was dealt with in the completely wrong way. Why drag Sherlock into it by sleeping with the friend?
- Joan called Sherlock out on his creepy paranoia bullshit and then just sort of…dropped it? That REALLY bugged me. I mean, he apologized, but Joan said it herself- that isn’t enough.
Things I did like:
- Sherlock’s “dark heart” dialogue.
- The fact that Joan has a friend that isn’t A) “checking up” on her or B) married/partnered and trying to get her settled down.
- Jen (I think?) thought of Watson because of her deductive skills
- Also, I loved the fact that we could see Joan constantly taking notes in this ep! In most procedurals, the main investigators ~magically recall~ things, so it was good to have Joan taking notes. And who knows, maybe that helped her catch some of the small details!
In summary, an okay episode. Not great, but good enough. And we get to see more of Gregson next week!
