There’s not much that could keep John and Hamish from Sherlock’s side

I’ve never seen John Watson look at his soon to be wife like this. Ever. 

Which had to really take some very present, conscious acting to control, because Martin feels, like, this squared for Amanda. 
It was a choice on his part to not grant her looks like he gives Sherlock, and TPTB’s choice to use the takes they did to build the season. 
Again, either a monumental coincidence or…
Well, you know. 

Martin’s attention to detail as an actor is phenomenal. With any other aspect of the show I could easily believe that the fans put more thought into it than the people actually involved in the production…but with Martin? It’s hard for me to believe that Martin doesn’t know exactly what he’s doing.

God John. You’re so unreasonably jealous about everyone. Keep your shit together.

Seriously.

People John has been demonstrably jealous of so far:

Jim from IT
Moriarty (yes, separate listings!)
Irene
Janine

John even gets tetchy about the fact that Sherlock said Mary’s name when he first revived in the hospital. Just. Kiss. Him.

People John is not demonstrably jealous of:

David, the man his wife dated for two years and invited to their wedding

So I honestly can’t believe I’ve never seen anyone talking about the art direction of this scene. If I’m repeating something, Ah,well. But I’ve honestly never seen it pointed out that this is the very first time we see Mary, and there are three important things here:
Mary reaches for John’s hand. John takes it, of course—he is used to being offered comfort for his loss, by now—but he is not reaching out to her for comfort in his sadness. She is inserting herself into his grief. Reflexively, he lets her.
We only see the back of her. It’s unusual to introduce a major protagonist any other way than by showing their face pretty much immediately. A major antagonist, however…a baddie…well, they often are introduced in a cloud of cigarette smoke, from a distance, in the shadows, as a mysterious voice on a phone, or in some other way that doesn’t tell us right away who they are. Our first glimpse of Mary gives us only the most vague information about her. Obviously a woman, obviously someone John is close to, as he holds her hand. Other than that…who is she? We don’t know.
Finally, it’s no mistake she is wearing a long, grey coat which flares slightly from the waist, and a blue scarf. But they are paler shades of those colours than Sherlock’s coat and scarf were, because Mary is but a pale imitation of the person we are used to seeing standing beside John Watson (even once, when they were handcuffed together, holding John Watson’s hand in a manner similar to what we see here). Her coat and scarf look cheap, “less than,” and her denim jeans are “less” than Sherlock Holmes’s designer trousers. Her dark hat is a visual echo of Sherlock’s dark hair. This whole shot is set up not only to remind us that Sherlock used to stand here at John Watson’s side, but also that This is some lesser, fake, replacement-Sherlock standing at John Watson’s side, and whether consciously or unconsciously, John has chosen a pale imitation indeed.

"Hi, Dad! First off, don’t panic. Everything here at school is fine. Seriously. Okay.  Father asked me to send you this message to let you know that he won’t be home for at least another week. The case took a strange turn, and he’s currently undercover at brothel somewhere in Thailand. And, no, I didn’t ask."
"That’s it. I’m going to kill the man. I’m going to kill him the minute he walks through that door. And THIS time I’m going to wear red to his goddamned funeral."
"He also said he’ll be bringing back photos of a young woman named Savitree who is, he asked me to quote,  ’a talented acrobatic contortionist with quite impressive breasts.’”
"Right, then. He can live. But I’m going to make bloody well sure he doesn’t enjoy it."
