This is an Avengers blog (British TV show, not the superheroes). Expect anything to do with John Steed, Emma Peel, Cathy Gale, Patrick Macnee, Diana Rigg, Honor Blackman, or Avenging-type things.
If there's any specific fanfiction you want to read and I have not yet written, let me know.

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.
They’re often pictured in shot-reverse shot, rather than in a two-shot, which indicates the split forming between them as a result of Beresford. Basically, there’s a preponderance of scenes where they rarely appear side by side.
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.
