Oh, but you’re good.

You, with your unassuming jumpers and that moronic cane.

You fool almost everyone, including yourself, most days.

But I am not everyone. One look at you, and my interest was piqued.

Of course, that’s all it took to surmise your situation, as well.

I deduced your limp was psychosomatic in seconds, and unlike your therapist, I had a good guess as to its cause.

Forget “stress” and other such idiocy. No, I suspected this was something else entirely: Anger. At being invalided home; at the man who shot you; that you’re not “where you’re supposed to be” in life.

I postulated that your limp was a distraction from the rage you expertly conceal.

But even I wasn’t certain of this until you blew up at Mrs. Hudson.

I was nearly out the door.

I almost missed your outburst.

But I didn’t, and I’m glad.

For you proved me right, and more importantly, you gave me a new idea.

What’s that saying?

Physician, heal thyself?

Well, I’m no doctor, but I know a little something about distractions, John Watson.

And I have a theory.

I think, perhaps, you’ve finally come to the right place for help with this little problem of yours.

Only one way to find out, I suppose.

Oh, you shall be a grand experiment!

Brilliant!
