They never hooked up. Molly was in a relationship with Tom as of Season 3, the guy who dressed like Sherlock and, briefly, with Moriarty in Season 1. Season 2. Why Molly's Ending In The 'Sherlock' Season 4 Finale Was So Hard To Swallow Season 3 moves her further into the "friend zone" (which, in the context of Though she has some form of a relationship with the main, male. The Sherlock Season 4 finale, “The Final Problem,” sees Sherlock (and Mycroft Sherlock also can't tell Molly that Eurus has rigged her flat to blow up should Molly not say, “I love you. Maybe in like, three years I'd “get over it. scene, because it feels like their relationship has been building to this point.
After some serious thinking in our best deerstalkers, here are five things we predict will feature in the next instalment: In fact, she seemed to be hitting on Mycroft. Offering him a card with her private number, she asked coquettishly: But he took the card, so who knows - this may be the beginning of a beautiful relationship.
We'd certainly love to see the pair of them on an episode of First Dates. The real meaning of 'Go to hell, Sherlock' There was something a bit odd about Mary's posthumous message for Sherlock. After ordering him to "save John Watson", her message seemingly came to an end. We heard Benedict Cumberbatch musing in monologue about how death awaits us all, before the credits began to roll.
There must be something more going on here, but what? Another lovely day in Hell Credit: Unsurprisingly, it involves Norway. The small Norwegian town of Hell pop. Is this just a shameless attempt to lure in more visitors for the winter months, or could they be on to something? Either way, it seems like a charming little town and we wish them luck.
BBC In the most emotional scene of this year's finale, perennially undervalued lab assistant and fan favourite Molly Hooper was forced to tell Sherlock she loved him, after he implied he felt the same way about her. The conversation certainly ended by leaving them both in tears. Naturally, when he chooses to reveal himself, he does so to his best friend, first. But, where does he go next? He goes to Molly, and I love the framing of this scene and the use of the mirror here.
Molly opens her locker, her head somewhere else, naturally, and then she spies him in the reflection.
He could be a figment of her imagination, but as she whirls around to face him, the perspective shifts. The focus is now on her, very reminiscent of when he surprised her at the end of Reichenbach Falls. He used a big smile to get into the apartment building in The Blind Banker. Should she allow herself to feel exuberant?
John has rejected him, and Mycroft proved inefficient to encourage his imagination in solving the problem. However, this scene is beautiful in its awkwardness. He knew she would be there, and the focus shifts from him to her.
He has something to ask her, something very special for him.
- Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch breaks silence on detective’s love interest
For him, this is intimate. Look at the body language. Look at his state of dress. Her feet are planted by the door.

He looks to the ground, mustering up the words. This is something he can offer her.
A bulge like that on her ring finger beneath a mitten would still be plenty apparent. Molly has obviously spoken to John about what he does when working with Sherlock, and she wants to be the best substitution possible.
The love of your life? There are a million different interpretations, and I think mine is going to be incredibly unpopular.
His next move is to rise, and tell Molly the solution to the case.

It is natural for him to look to her when he figures it out and wishes to share it with her. Molly is listening to the woman and taking her notes, but Sherlock is noting Molly. Sherlock once challenged John to investigate a shoe, so we know he likes to see what a layman compared to him can muster up. This is one where I probably take more liberty than others because he already knows the skeleton is no more than six months old.
He and Molly say it together. Therefore, wherein lies the jealousy? Her hands are in full view as she investigates the skeleton, so does he see the ring and feel jealous? Honestly, I cannot identify another reason for jealousy to come up in this moment.
He correctly and quickly identified the age. Reichenbach Falls changed all that. It changed their dynamic, and it changed where they stood.
Stars in Her Eyes - Sherlolly (Sherlock/Molly) in Sherlock Series/Season 3
My husband will be holding one, and call him the name of the other, because he happens to be looking across the room at the other. Sorry, do go on. There are so many little things in this episode that call back to previous encounters with Molly or with others.
But look at the body language!
When they were waiting at the door, she was alongside him, turned towards him. When they entered and settled in the room, she is alongside him, again. They space is small, forcing them to stand close together, but she could stand behind him or apart from him, as she did at the previous crime scene.
She smiles secretly at his comment, and he enjoys seeing her smile. He smiles to himself, watching her enjoy that smile. He can remember when he announced to the room that she was hoping to seduce a man only to realize that man was him, and the hurt on her face.
He can remember the horror when he told her that her boyfriend was, in fact, gay. He can remember the pleading in her eyes when she offered to help him in Reichenbach Falls.
Sherlock (both the person and the show) is a total jerk to Molly Hooper, and it is 100% not okay
It would be understandable, considering the dark nature of his work, but when he invited her over, despite everything she knew of him, she secretly hoped it would be an invitation to dinner. He simply wanted to thank her. Sherlock is known for twisting things, for saying things to Molly to manipulate her into doing what he wants or needs. He needs her, now, to know that he is sincere. He came to her with himself. He came to her with humility.
He trusted her completely, and from that moment on, that moment two years earlier, everything changed between them, and I believe it was for the better. He made a mistake. You made it all possible. But if you dig deeper into this small speech, it feels like there are two things at play, and not the one. Depending on your ship allegiances or personal perceptions, you might note the emphasis on her not mattering to him at all.
Or, you might note how he said she made the whole plan possible. We see that brought to life in this series. He cares about her opinion. He values her counsel. Molly Hooper is no longer the girl he maneuvers to accomplish his goals. She is someone he actively invites to participate in his life, to enter his world. He talks to his brother about friends, about women, about making connections.
He believed for so long, as his brother does, that connections are frivolous, and those unequal to their mental prowess are bores or boorish. Sherlock has dared to enter into relationships with people. Mary has been brought onboard by association to John, his best friend. Lestrade is the man who always took a risk on him in the past, and earned his respect for being willing to accept his help. But, watch the body language, again.
His arms go from hanging comfortably by his side, to clasped behind his back. He assumes a more professional posture with her, a more neutral one, the act of putting his hands behind his back pulling him further away from her.
The poor woman unknowingly dated one of the most dangerous men in the world. She pined after a man who had no intentions at the time, at least of fulfilling her fantasies, save where it suited his agenda.
She has endured the death of her father, and crippling loneliness that left her available on Christmas while others shared time with loved ones. He takes a step towards her, like in Reichenbach Falls, when he told her what he needed was her. He offers her a soft smile, an earnest one, and then he bends down to kiss her cheek, and this one is so different from a Scandal in Belgravia. He leaned down and we saw her face disappear, then reappear, as he offered her the kiss on the cheek.
That kiss was for her. It was an apology, a present. He kissed her because it was the only thing he knew to do to acknowledge and apologize for his behaviour. We see the lean down with him in frame, this time, and we see how the smile falls from his face as his skin meets her skin, his lips grazing her cheek. He releases it all in that moment, and she receives it.
The first time he kissed her in canon, he pulled away, and she was in shock. This time, a part of her knew to savor it. Her eyes are closed, a soft smile playing at her lips when he moves away.
He walks away before she can say anything, before anything can change against that perfect moment. More than likely, he would ruin everything by stating something seemingly innocuous in a less than sensitive manner.
No, he exits before she can open her eyes, stepping out into the cold. She watches him leave, headed one direction, before heading the opposite. Despite what she might feel, his path is no more hers than it ever was, and she moves on, or so she thinks.
