You’re not the only one to enjoy a good murder.
There’s a name, that no-one says.

And now I don’t even have you.
You can’t ignore the devastation on this man’s face. He’s frustrated, he’s angry, he’s depressed and he’s desperate. ‘Now I don’t even have you’, implying he has nothing else to live for.
Of all the people in Sherlock’s life who have likely called him “heartless,” Jim isn’t one of them. He knows better. He knows him better than they do. Sherlock doesn’t really feel heartless, he doesn’t believe he’s heartless - and Jim also doesn’t believe that he is. Jim confirms the opposite for him, aloud - that they both know, despite what everyone else has said, that Sherlock has a heart.
It’s so interesting to imagine what may have been running through Sherlock’s head at this point - at the point that Jim Moriarty made it clear that he knew Sherlock, knew him through and through, knew his deepest thoughts - better than those other people did, better than the people Sherlock never argued with but always silently disagreed with - because what does Sherlock know about things like having a heart? If they tell him he doesn’t have one, then he must not, even if he does know, deep down, that it doesn’t feel quite true - but Jim knew better, and on top of the fact that he knew Sherlock had a heart, he knew that Sherlock believed he had one, too.
Ugh, my OTP feelings.
You’re a disease in my brain. therefore, take your last breath so I can continue forward. Continue breathing.
The eyes they make at each other from across a courtroom. All the important people present, the law enforcers, the lawyers, the judge, the jury, and still it’s all about these two men and the game that only they know about.
This is all one big inside joke to them. They both know that there is something much more interesting going on, and yet find themselves surrounded by people who are too pedestrian to even suspect it.
To the members of the public, this is just a know-it-all detective and a smug probably-insane criminal who got caught in the act teasing one another. And, in a way, that’s exactly what is going on here.
They’re flirting with each other in a room full of people, they’re showing off, but their real audience is each other. No one else in that courtroom matters. Not a single one of them.
