Summary: Holmes isn't the only one with a case of jealousy.
The knowledge of Holmes’ survival was the greatest gift that Watson had ever received.
There was something Holmes would never be able to give him, however. He knew that Holmes respected him, relied on his acumen, and often simultaneously attempted to deny and deepen the bond they shared.
What Holmes did not do was see him as an equal. That privilege was accorded to the detestable scoundrel who had attempted to start a global conflagration in order to line his own pockets.
Professor Moriarity was the man that Holmes esteemed as a fellow genius and Watson hated him for it.
