A Study in Subtly Awesome Moments for Ascended Extras
In all seriousness, though, Inspector Lestrade is simply made of awesome in this story. Recurring character ascended to The Hero, the Team Dad, the Parental Substitute for a certain convalescent amateur, the Determinator, the Only Sane Man, the Not So Stoic professional, and the guy who gets to give the Sherlock Holmes What the Hell, Hero? speech several times.
Mary is also made of win in this story, having gone from being a Spirited Young Lady to an honest-to-goodness . She is also Action Girl The Heart, Lestrade's Hyper Competent Sidekick, the Team Mom, The Smart Girl, the Determinator - all of which adds up to, you guessed it: Pintsized Powerhouse.
Holmes: "Lestrade, have you gone insane? How could you bring Mary into this? If Watson had had the least notion... that you, or anyone, would involve his wife..." Lestrade: "You talk as if I had some kind of choice in the matter, Mr Holmes. The first I even knew that Mary was following me was on the boat from Newhaven. Came up beside me while I was hanging over the rail and offered me a ginger pill, as calm and unruffled as you please."
And then coming to be a surrogate big sister/mom to the Great Detective, of all people??
Plus, the fact that she's come through all this tragedy and trauma, the greatest of which being the murder of her husband... without losing her baby to miscarriage. Pintsized Powerhouse, indeed.
