It’s both of them.  It’s John steeling himself up for what everyone knows Sherlock wants to confess, going still and stoic and shutting down emotionally like only John Watson can do.  

It’s Sherlock noticing John’s distress and being unable to say it out loud.  It’s two men very very afraid of giving this thing definition and not being allowed to pursue it completely.  One thinks he’s off to die, the other has made a bed and decided to lie in it.  

And Sherlock says nothing because if you don’t say it out loud, then there is some sort of self-preservation to it all.

I’m sorry, I can’t reassure you but you just can’t get over fictional characters. They’ll make you smile, they’ll make you cry, they’ll make you happy, they’ll break your heart and destroy you but don’t even try to get over them. It’s impossible. I tried but I failed, I love them more than ever. Love them, they won’t let you alone.
