And though he notes early on that Enola “did not need protection,” he does keep a protective eye on her. I took my seat in the chair facing hers, both of us angled with our backs towards Sherlock, and of course I surveyed her from head to toe without appearing to do so. When our parents departed this earthly sphere, they did so happy in the knowledge that their daughter was the wife of the Earl of Dunhench, no less.
But after Enola makes it clear that they will work together for Miss Glover—a woman whom Enola has already formed a bond with—Sherlock loosens up.
