I think the relationship depends on the different writers interpretations for instance in Brett's Sherlock after Irene has left Watson finds Sherlock. To talk about Sherlock and Irene's relationship in Doyle's story is to only point out that there isn't one. She isn't his love interest, she is treated as his match, and.
John's jaw dropped and he blinked furiously. No, no this couldn't be possible. Except… Well…It was very possible. It was fairly logical to assume that Sherlock and Irene had had sex, seeing they were a couple. It was probably the first thing Irene had insisted on. And John knew that one slip was all it took.
Sherlock looked up and raised his eyebrows. Sherlock was looking at him in a similar way he had once when John was left stuttering in the doorway when he had seen Irene alive and well in the flat.
Deciding not to make himself look like an idiot, John tried to straighten the facts out once again in his mind. Sherlock had been looking at two internet sites about pregnancy. That could just mean that he was investigating a case, which he needed this information for. It wouldn't have made much sense, if she hadn't used the name Hamish. John remembered the conversation from so long ago.
John Hamish Watson…if you're looking for baby names. If she was using the name Hamish, then she was talking about possible names for a child. John doubted Irene was pregnant by someone else other than Sherlock, because their relationship was serious, and she didn't seem like the kind to cheat on him.
If she was talking about a child, it could only be hers.The Relationship Between Sherlock & Irene
And Sherlock had been looking up pregnancy so… And if John coupled that with Sherlock's sudden and unannounced trip to New Zealand two months ago…oh God. He turned around from the screen to face his flat mate, an offended expression on his face. Sherlock said nothing, and simply let the statement hang in the air.
John quietly let it sink in, and then cleared his throat.
He was pleased that John had figured it out — it saved him a lot of awkwardness. That explained why Sherlock had suddenly just disappeared for two weeks, and hadn't bothered to mention why.
Sherlock looked up again this time, and he wore the expression of a man who didn't know whether or not to be flattered or insulted. John chuckled to himself. He hoped that the baby wouldn't take after Sherlock; otherwise Irene would be trapped in a living hell. He wanted to know for the approximate time he should brace himself for seeing a baby in the flat.

John whistled to himself. He had assumed it to be about 2 or 3 months, but apparently Irene had also had some hesitations about telling Sherlock. John had to admit that he understood her reasons. That explained the date Irene had mentioned in the email. If she was 7 months along, then she would deliver sometime in May. He tried to picture the two of them as parents, and quickly decided to spare himself the hardship. He still partly saw Irene as a dominatrix, and thinking of Sherlock as a daddy made him want to laugh.
Two years ago, if anyone had told him that he would find himself in this predicament, he would have laughed and called the person crazy. Now, not so much. He turned back to the laptop and began to check his emails. He heard Sherlock skyping with Irene that evening, and decided to say hello. He wasn't going to miss his chance at seeing a pregnant Irene, if only through a webcam. He walked into the room, and nearly stopped short when he saw just how big she was.
Sherlock had told him she was 7 months along…but wow. She smiled when she saw him. The whole situation still seemed a little surreal to him, so he just nodded. Irene was wrong, Sherlock hadn't exactly told him, but still. He had gotten the point across. He sighed and looked at John. He hadn't expected this. Should you change your mind, Sherlock knows how to fake your signature". Thank you for reading. I know that was a weird place to end, and I apologise.
I have a question for you?
Do you think That Sherlock would fly over for the delivery and then leave a day or so after that? Everything mentioned above, but that Sherlock would stay with Irene for a few weeks, become a more active part of Nero's life and help Irene out? That he wouldn't intially care too much about Nero?
He asks the famous detective to secure possession of a previously taken photograph depicting Adler and the King together. The King hired burglars to attempt to retrieve it twice, had Adler herself waylaid, and her luggage stolen, to no avail. The King explains the situation to Holmes, telling him that Adler had promised to send a photograph proving their relationship to his fiance's family if he announced his betrothal.
A disguised Holmes traces Adler's movements, learning of her private life and, notably, stands witness to her marriage to Godfrey Norton, an English lawyer. Holmes describes her as "a lovely woman, with a face a man might die for". Holmes disguises himself as an elderly cleric and sets up a faked incident to cause a diversion that is designed to gain him access to Adler's home and to trick her into revealing where the picture is hidden. Adler treats him kindly as the supposed victim of a crime outside her home.
At the moment she gives away the location of the photograph, she realises she has been tricked. She tests her theory that it is indeed Holmes, of whom she had been warned, by disguising herself as a young man and wishing him good night as he and Watson return to B Baker Street.
Holmes visits Adler's home the next morning with Watson and the King to demand the return of the photograph. He finds Adler gone, along with her new husband and the original photo, which has been replaced with a photograph of her alone as well as a letter to Holmes. The letter explains how she had outwitted him, but also that she is happy with her new husband, who has more honourable feelings than her former lover.
Adler adds that she will not compromise the King and has kept the photo only to protect herself against any further action the King might take. In the face of this and the King's statement that it was a "pity that she was not on my level", Holmes then decides that Adler was the wronged party rather than the King and asks, when offered a reward by the King, only for the photograph that Adler had left.
In the opening paragraph of the short story, Watson calls her "the late Irene Adler", suggesting she is deceased. It has been speculated, however, that the word "late" might actually mean "former".
She married Godfrey Norton, making Adler her former name. Doyle employs this same usage in " The Adventure of the Priory School " in reference to the Duke's former status as a cabinet minister. Character sources[ edit ] Lillie Langtry, one possible model for Irene Adler Adler's career as a theatrical performer who becomes the lover of a powerful aristocrat had several precedents. One is Lola Monteza dancer who became the lover of Ludwig I of Bavaria and influenced national politics.
Montez is suggested as a model for Adler by several writers. Another suggestion is the singer Ludmilla Stubel, the alleged lover and later wife of Archduke Johann Salvator of Austria. In " The Five Orange Pips ", her name is not explicitly stated, but Holmes refers to her in mentioning that he has been beaten four times, thrice by men and once by a woman.
Holmes' relationship to Adler[ edit ] Adler earns Holmes' unbounded admiration. Is it not a pity she was not on my level? To Sherlock Holmes she is always the woman. I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name. In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex. It was not that he felt any emotion akin to love for Irene Adler. All emotions, and that one particularly, were abhorrent to his cold, precise but admirably balanced mind.
He was, I take it, the most perfect reasoning and observing machine that the world has seen, but as a lover he would have placed himself in a false position. He never spoke of the softer passions, save with a gibe and a sneer. They were admirable things for the observer—excellent for drawing the veil from men's motives and actions. But for the trained reasoner to admit such intrusions into his own delicate and finely adjusted temperament was to introduce a distracting factor which might throw a doubt upon all his mental results.
Grit in a sensitive instrument, or a crack in one of his own high-power lenses, would not be more disturbing than a strong emotion in a nature such as his. And yet there was but one woman to him, and that woman was the late Irene Adler, of dubious and questionable memory.
This "memory" is kept alive by a photograph of Irene Adler, which had been deliberately left behind when she and her new husband took flight with the embarrassing photograph of her with the King. Holmes had then asked for and received this photo from the King, as payment for his work on the case. Baring-Gould puts forth an argument that Adler and Holmes meet again after the latter's supposed death at Reichenbach Falls.
They perform on stage together incognito, and become lovers. According to Baring-Gould, Holmes and Adler's union produces one son, Nero Wolfewho would follow in his father's footsteps as a detective. A series of mystery novels written by Carole Nelson Douglas features Irene Adler as the protagonist and sleuth, chronicling her life shortly before in the novel Good Night, Mr. Holmes and after her notable encounter with Sherlock Holmes and which feature Holmes as a supporting character.
