* John works out that Sherlock didn't want Toby because he's a good sniffer dog (he doesn't move for ages) but just that Sherlock is fond of him. Sherlock turns it around and says the same can be true of his feelings for John.
* Sherlock showing Mycroft a photo of Rosie on his phone for no other reason than he just wanted his brother to see his goddaughter.

* Sherlock saying sorry to a family who lost their child on a case. Sure, he got the gender wrong. Sure, he can't stops himself from investigating when he shouldn't. But he managed to console them in an appropriate manner, a huge development from his old jerkass self.

** Also, Charlie Welsborough opting to try and surprise his father by coming home from his gap year in Tibet and joining him for his fiftieth birthday. Sadly, he died from a seizure before he could surprise him, but the fact that he was willing to come home for his father's birthday counts.

* Another moment from before the grenade explodes in 221B: Sherlock asking Mycroft if John can make a phone call to say goodbye to his daughter. Mycroft doesn't respond to Sherlock, who asked the question, but directly to John, sincerely apologising that it's not possible. John hadn't mentioned Rosie or asked to contact her (or whoever was looking after her just then). But so-called sociopath Sherlock thought John might want to contact his child in what was potentially his "very last few seconds", and so-called sociopath Mycroft genuinely empathised with John because he couldn't.
* Just the idea that Sherlock, Mycroft and John, three grown men, obviously got so much glee out of dressing up, hitting the high seas and playing out boyish fantasies of being actual pirates:

* Several times during the episode, Sherlock and John are able to hold each other together and pick each other back up when the other is on the verge of breaking down from Eurus's emotional torture.

** In a tragic sense, it's still heartwarming how, regardless how hard it is for Sherlock, it doesn't take him many seconds to decide to point the gun at Mycroft as he could never imagine shooting John.

* Euros tries to force Sherlock into a SadisticChoice: kill John or Mycroft. Immediately Mycroft tells Sherlock to shoot John. Making it worse, it doesn't even seem like he's doing so out of fear, he just appears to assume Sherlock will pick him, and not even for familial love, just the cold, ruthless reasoning that Mycroft is smarter and more valuable. When Sherlock hesitates, Mycroft then starts insulting him over and over. So of course, the heartwarming part comes into it when it's revealed Mycroft was simply lying to goad Sherlock into sparing John and [[HeroicSacrifice shooting him instead.]]

** Crossing into TearJerker: Just ''the look'' on Mycroft's face when instead of shooting either of them, Sherlock [[spoiler: turns the gun on himself]].


Added DiffLines:

** We also see Sherlock sending a text saying "You know where to find me". While it's not stated, it's definitely implied that he's taking John's advice and seeing Irene again.


Added DiffLines:

** He's got so many of these moments in this episode, we might as well just re-name it "Mycroft Really is a Human Being".
