I admit, I’ve never been able to follow your verbal descriptions of the floor plan, and I’m forever getting mentally turned around in there. I’m waiting for you to spend the hiatus building a little reference website, complete with corroborating screencaps, demonstrating which room is what and their relationship to each other.
I can’t do that this month but I can’t stand you not knowing, so maybe this will do in a pinch, regarding just the kitchen and Sherlock’s room/the room where Irene stayed in the brownstone (and I hope there’s some reference next season to the extensive search they did to be sure all all the hidden surveillance stuff she must have installed was removed).
in the gifset you rebloged after this one, the last image is of Joan leaning against the door between the kitchen and Sherlock’s room. Sherlock is sitting on a chair in that room.
Here’s Sherlock sitting on the couch in the room going on about the sex; you can see the french doors on the back wall that Irene’s bed is against in the finale. Watson is sitting on a box next to the open french doors between his room and the kitchen.
Here’s another view across the kitchen with his room in the background, as he talks about how Clyde is magnificent.
Here’s a view of the kitchen from inside the room.
In the finale:
above, you can see the stairs to the main floor behind Joan, and the kitchen behind Sherlock.
Here’s Watson just after closing the doors (the ones Sherlock is in front of in the first image).
And here, from Possibility Two, is the same room now containing free bee: you can see the whatever that is piece of furniture against the wall, books & a lamp on it in the finale image above; covered in sweaters below:
Watson is standing in front of the same doorway she’s entering in the first finale photo above.
Oh Elementary fans, I love your geeky, obsessive focus on every detail. Please never change.
(Confession: the layout of the brownstone is still a mystery to me, but I’m a Whovian and I’ve had to accept that I will never understand the ever-changing layout of the TARDIS, so I’m good. However, if any of you talented people ever designs a blueprint of the layout of the brownstone, I’d love to have a copy for my office wall.)
