Sherlock is deeply, profoundly in love with John, and neither of them (consciously) realizes it. In the aftermath of their encounter with Magnussen, both are left emotionally reeling, and all of the feelings Sherlock has been repressing begin to haunt him in the form of dreams and phantom aches.
Continuation of where Series 3, Episode 3, left off. Spoilers.
Our Baker Street boys are getting married (cue collective finally from half of London's population), but it's only for a case; temporary and completely faked. Unless, of course, nothing goes according to plan and they stumble across something much bigger than either of them had anticipated, forcing them to face their repressed feelings and consider sacrificing everything to make it out alive.
“Three homosexual couples who recently got married have been killed in the last month. Their killer is getting more audacious; targeting progressively more famous couples. We’re going undercover.”
John set his mug of tea and the paper down on the coffee table and, without a word, stormed from the flat.
This story is now complete.
- Part 1 of Proposals
Sherlock is hurt too much - both physically and emotionally - to return to John as he had envisioned. Mycroft will stop at nothing to protect his baby brother and calls in John's help. But can they move past what happened to the both of them and restore what they had before Sherlock jumped?

“It was meant to be romantic,” Sherlock whines.
“Well, mission accomplished then,” John replies. “Having to explain to the people I work with exactly why I’m taking up a bed in A&E and being wheeled about with my arse hanging out while the nurses try very hard not to laugh directly to my face—height of romance, that. Well done, you.”
“I hardly intended for it to end this way,” Sherlock argues.
“You never do.”
Sometimes even the best of plans go wrong. And sometimes wrong turns out to be exactly right.

One of my all time favorites. The dialogue and characterization are so spot on.
