Because Mark Gatiss is a genius. That scene was so fucking scary.

CAN WE JUST
CAN WE WATCH SHERLOCK IN ENGLISH CLASSES??
-Based off of the classic novels of the iconic detective
In this scene alone, english teachers would have a field day. We could write essays about how the hound attacking Henry’s reflection is symbolizing the darkness in his mind, the suicidal thoughts, the worsening of hie memories, the witnessing the violent death of his dad all those years ago. How it’s attacking him now because he’s getting drugged by the guy. All those thoughts are getting worse and now he’s scared of himself, of what he’s becoming.
