I love this wipe transition in Sherlock, The Sign of Three!The much maligned wipe – infamous for its inclusion in “tacky” wedding videos – has recently become a regularly implemented but rarely seen, or noticed, technique. The wipe is the technique where one shot is replaced by another by the movement of an edge, or line, which replaces the previous shot by “wiping” it. By revealing a new scene, environment or space the wipe offers a spatial or temporal transition to the director. (x)
We’re shooting a wedding video alright. What are we wiping? Well. we’ve got Archie, a stand-in for— hold your horses— John. Yes, that’s right. You might think he’s Little Sherlock because curls! (I won’t argue with you.) But he’s literally and figuratively standing in for John:
Archie: What’s all that stuff in his eyes?
And grown Sherlock expecting to terrorize the child.
And Archie replies with Johnish enthusiasm:
Grown Sherlock seems a bit surprised by the reaction, that Archie doesn’t freak out and that he sees the obvious truth. It IS cool. Sherlock hums in agreement with Archie.
Then the wipe.
Look at what it’s doing! It replaces the little boy with the morbid interests, the boy that surprises Sherlock with their shared enthusiasm for the gross, the boy who LOVES Sherlock, who hugs him at the wedding, the boy Sherlock has, according to Archie’s mum “brought out of his shell”…
…the wipe replaces THAT kid with John…
…with a newly wedded John who’d already given Sherlock a hug that day, with the John who was so alone and who owes Sherlock so much, the John that Sherlock had brought out of his shell.
Sherlock doesn’t quite know what to do with their affection and gratitude.
Archie loves Sherlock. Did you see THAT Mary?
I JUST rewatched this episode and something about this scene has always made me feel bittersweet and I thought maybe it was parentlock feels or something but no, I just realized, it’s that it breaks my heart a little bit that Sherlock is getting John-like attention from this little boy who clearly adores him and has no problem showing it, meanwhile John can’t or won’t show this kind of naked, unabashed, unreserved affection towards Sherlock and it’s so awful because he needs it, so, so much, and specifically from John. He’s dying for it but he’ll never ask for it. He’s a desert of insecurity and low self-esteem and false bravado and John is the live-giving rain of friendship and admiration and love.
