Is Sherlock Watson good enough for you?

I just realized that in this godforsaken scene:

When Sherlock says “I think it could work”

He’s saying I think the name Sherlock Watson could work”

And then John, still laughing, realizes what he just heard and does a sort of puzzled look back up at Sherlock:

And Sherlock just:

And in conclusion, we’re not exactly looking at an aborted declaration of love.

What Mary deduces about Sherlock

just-sort-of-happened:

Sherlock clashes John’s proposal dinner with no forethought to how he will be received.  John attacks him three times and walks away.  Sherlock and Mary talk and she reassures him that she will, ‘talk him around’.  Then Sherlock deduces a series of things about Mary.  We cut to Sherlock’s face and two words linger from the ‘Mary deductions’.  One: romantic, two: short-sighted.

This incident gives Mary significant advantage over Sherlock.  If she is what she seems to be: a CIA agent on a special mission that involves killing Sherlock and/or getting close to John, then this funny sequence tells her two of Sherlock’s pivotal weak points.  She can later exploit these, including in her plan to shoot him at Magnussen’s.

Visually, we get an additional clue about how Mary is seeing Sherlock here, “Open”.  He is vulnerable and exposed,
