if there’s anything I can’t handle right now it’s this
The relationship between Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder is one of the best TV partnerships for me. It shows that relationships don’t have to be romantic ones to be profound and caring. By being detective partners they develop a connection but from then on they become more and more attached to one another.
Without knowing it - they are practically a couple. When they fight the fight with passion. They make fun of each other, and know the psychological pressure points to hit when their anger makes them want to hurt the other. But afterwards, they come back and apologise to each other’s faces, and they mean it. They reaffirm their trust and move on. They both obviously deeply care for one another whether it’s holding each other when times are rough, or giving them a place to crash for the night.
Stephen admits to his addiction and Sarah is there for him when he relapses; on finding out Sarah’s poor mental state Holder becomes more aware of the stresses she is taking on. They are vulnerable with each other, like Linden baring her soul about her foster childhood and how that feeds into her adult life.
It’s so beautifully written. You can see as an outsider that they have feelings for each other, but I am so glad you never see them ‘hook up’. I don’t think it would have suited their characters. Both Sarah and Holder are too stubborn to admit their feelings spontaneously. Although at the same time their chemistry was perfect!
But, at the end of the day, they make each other happy and they want to protect their partner. The best thing about their relationship though is the fact that they literally carry out the saying: "A good friend will come visit you in prison; but your best friend will help you hide the body."

This is easy. I can’t eat dairy so a wheel of cheese doesn’t impress me. BUT, I do loose socks ALL THE TIME. So I choose socks.
Don’t marry. Have a rich or well off older male friend(s). They will treat you to all that they never gave their own children or grandchildren.
Don’t think you have to marry anyone, Amberica.
