Re your comment below:

"Both O'Shaunnasy & Adler are sociopaths, speculatively both were probably abused in childhood."

Her I DO have t disagree. What is there about Irene Adler that makes you label her a sociopath. She's capable of empathy, and of love. She has a sense of justice, and, a sense of decency.

MOreover, she seems, from Conan Doyle's POV, and ultimately from Holmes's ad Watson's, to have justice on her side.

Unlike Brigid she doesn't kill people indiscriminately, and unlike Brigid, she doesn't use her sexuality to manipulate people. Where do you see the sociopathy?
