    Summary

    I'm among what appears to be a small number of people to truly adore Janine. Love her to bits, and suspect that she's very good for Sherlock...and that he likes her more than he knows quite what to do with. I was thrilled to learn she'd be back next season, and in what sounds like a good friendship with Sherlock.

    There's a very good part of an interview with Moffat about SiB, in which he talks about Sherlock's apology to Molly during the Christmas party. Quote: He realizes she’s really hurting. And he realizes, possibly for the first time in his life, that he doesn’t like what he just did. He thinks ‘I’ve got to fix that.’ He’s been cruel before, but it’s always been srot of accidental, or it’s been minor. And he thinks ‘I’ve got to fix that. That’s not good enough. I can do better than that. And I do care that I’ve just hurt her.’

    To me the thing with Janine, including Sherlock's final straw with Magnussen being CAM's gloating over tormenting her, is the same dynamic written on a larger and more adult scale. Janine's his first "real" girlfriend...so, this story is a larger and more adult apology and attempt to "fix that."
