Oh my god. It was a test.
Holy f… I thought John was just smirking to himself about the corrupt nature of government. But this is just proof; Mycroft really is smarter than Sherlock. The warehouse wasn’t just a babysitting interview and salary negotiation, even if Sherlock thought it was. it was a damned test, and John passed. He’s too morally driven to sell Sherlock out, and therefore not inclined to stab Mycroft in the back. Four for you, Mycroft. You go, Mycroft.
(Also, CONTINUITY, Mr. Gatiss. You’re doing it right.)

after many months of planning, you’re standing at the altar with your significant other in a beautiful room filled with all of your friends and your family
and every single person in that room over age 10 knows you’re getting laid tonight
this was beautiful
