It’s so well acted…
Can I be a wet blanket here?
I think the idea was for us to think that^ at this scene. Reinforced by the emotionally loaded “What do you need? -You” further into this episode. But I think this is bait (I won’t go into how there are so many forced intentions for the viewer to lay eyes on Sherlock+anyonebutJohn in this series, but I will say this:)
I think this is Sherlock’s face while he realizes “you are right, you don’t count. I don’t think you do. SO… Moriarty wouldn’t think you count either.” And that’s the exact moment when Sherlock plans his face-to-face with Moriarty on the roof of the hospital. If Moriarty had thought Molly counted, he would have added her to the list of Sherlock’s friends and there would have been a fourth sniper. But he didn’t, because Molly is actually right when she says she doesnt’ count. Paradoxically, the exact moment she says so, she becomes the most important piece of the Sherlock’s plan for defeating Moriarty and surviving it. (How he did that is another story and I genuinely have NO IDEA what they’ll come up with. But I’m sure Molly was very much important in that plan)
Less romantic, I know, but I think the reason why Sherlock was “sad” as Molly says is because he hadn’t yet figure out the whole fake-my-own-death plan.
I needed to properly convey how I feel about this character. For some reason, I felt macros were appropriate. She gives me so many feels.

Wow. Um… Wow. This is… no. If you believe Molly is a pathetic person, then I’m not entirely sure we’re watching the same show. She’s brave without being made of Kryptonite, she’s vulnerable without being pathetic, and she’s open and sincere enough to be able to stand up to Sherlock - but in a compassionate, real way, and only to let him know that in spite of what a dick he can be, she believes in him.
