i was disappointed with how i got everything i wanted from joan's speech on the brownstone steps -- like, literally the #joanwatsondeservesbetter speech that a lot of the fandom has been waiting for -- only for the writers to have her pull a complete 180 at the end of the episode. idk, it just didn't make sense to me. hoping the finale clears things up, though the season has definitely bit hit or miss for me overall.
Ohhh you mean how she basically told him off then got into bed with him. It is a little 180 and as MUCH as I hate it(believe me I do).... I kinda saw it happening, I don't know what it is about Mycroft for her. He's either her "sensibility", the "temptation" or her apparent "understanding", he's one of the things I'm just not sure what it is. Either that or the writers are just pulling our chains or something, they'll never give us a Joan/Sherlock date (which would shut me up. Just a date) but they'll give us Mycroft/Joan. I dunno... I'm not fond but what can you do. I just wish Joan would take a step back, granted Mycroft looks like this poor little victim who can't help his situation. Buttttt Mycroft's only now showed up, he's not been there for her when the big stuff came. He didn't hold her hand, talk about her past, or any of that. She and Sherlock have bonded a lot more than she Mycroft, but again.
If anything... seeing how the finales lately are doing a cliffhanger. I bet we see a cliffhanger-_-;. Or worse... my worse scenario of a cliffhanger, and all over Mycroft.
