What this episode does, for me, is highlight why this Gareth Lestrade is a prat and a dick, and why we’re all glad to be rid of him. What this episode also does is annoy me that he gets room and board long enough to get his shit together and get on with it, while we never see hide nor hair of his assistant again, who, presumably, doesn’t have a lot more to fall back on than he did. Except if her parents are exceptionally wealthy or some such, in which case a mention would have still been nice. Just a line, ’cause usually neither Joan nor Sherlock are people who just let others fall through the cracks unless they’re certain whoever it is will be ok — or, unless the person really doesn’t deserve it. As it stands, we’ve seen more terrible characters than her. Like, I don’t know. Lestrade, for instance.
