It’s pretty clear that Emma is no longer so enthralled with Cartney after he both insults women as a whole, and kills a man. Her body language is closed off (arms folded, the coffin between her and Cartney) and she and Steed are shot to be in opposition to him.

"Ah, do I detect a note of disapproval?"
You just reduced women to ‘mere vessels of pleasure.’ What did you expect? A high five?

Despite that handcuffs course, it appears that Steed forgets how to pick locks when he meets Emma, then remembers again when he meets Tara. I assume this means that of all the women he’s ever been chained up with, he only really wants to stay with one of them. 

No sexual tension here either.

I felt inspired and wrote a short little Steed/Cathy fic. Cathy remembers some moments from her past.

Totally SFW. 

As always, I love responses.
