"Oh shut up, Mrs Hudson."

IM FUCKING SOBBING MOTHERFUCKING SOBBING

seemed so wrong, but now it seems so right
Mr Magnussen, I have been asked to intercede with you by Lady Elizabeth Smallwood on the matter of her husband’s letters. Some time ago you put pressure on her concerning those letters.
More ejaculations of wonder.
BUT SHERLOCK DO YOU NEED THIS MANY LAPTOPS COULD YOU NOT OPEN ANOTHER TAB OR
I never noticed this before, but thanks to CookiesWillCrumble for drawing attention to it!
Now what exactly is Magnussen doing on his phone? I doubt he’s checking his mail at such a crucial moment… Is it possible that he anticipated Mary would shoot Sherlock and sent out a secret message for help (since he didn’t actually pick it up to talk)?
Lastly - notice his expression when he sees Mary actually really shooting him. Now I’m not trying to defend him in any way, because he is our villain and has done enough other bad stuff…. but that expression though! Am I the only one who reads sympathy in it?
This was a truly brilliant observation. Magnussen is reaching for his phone. And Mary isn’t even paying him any attention at that moment. I like this speculation that Magnussen sent for help. He could have easily had it coded so that just a key press or something equally simple gesture would send out an alarm causing a chain of events, which could include calling the ambulance. I like this very much! (It could be that he was turning on voice recorder or something to “get the evidence”, but Mary would have realized that after incapacitating both and destroyed the phone. Ok I will stop.)
Although, I don’t read Magnussen’s expression as sympathy. It seems to be just fear. I mean if she could shoot her own friend who was also her husband’s best friend, he feared that she wouldn’t hesitate to kill him as well. That’s how it looks to me.
Neck hollow though…
But, by God, he’ll never be forgotten.
What if Charles Magnussen had opened up the ‘vault’ for Sherlock and instead of a single chair there was a table with this on it
