Rewatching it, it goes like this:
Mycroft: ”There must be something in this ridiculous memory palace that can calm you down. Find it.”
[Sherlock starts running down the stairs that look like the ones from ASiP, the first visual hint we see of John.]
Mycroft: ”The east wind is coming, Sherlock. It’s coming to get you.”
[Sherlock runs down the stairs more, opens a door, gets shot by Mary in her wedding dress, falls backward screaming.]
[Sherlock runs through Roland Kerr-Further Education College from ASiP, also reminiscent of John, opens a different door, gets Redbeard.]
Yeah, I think he was looking for the thought of John to calm him down — hence all the stuff from ASiP — but it was immediately connected to John marrying Mary, and Mary shooting Sherlock, so he had to find something else. Thinking about John just then wouldn’t have been calming.
Awww, jesus. This is killing me.

A wild raven perches himself on the fence of a human’s farm and squawks for help because he has three porcupine quills stuck in the side of his face. The kind humans who find him attempt to take the quills out, but not without some “lip” from the raven.
It looks young to me, maybe in its first year. and I’d bet ANYTHING that there’s only one reason that a raven would end up with its face near the back end of a porcupine… Damn tail pulling corvids! Well, it’s learned its lesson now. Smart critter getting help from humans. You can tell he knows what they’re doing, it hurts and he complains loudly but he doesn’t fly away or defend himself. Corvids are so smart it blows my mind.
He’s definitely a juvenile - the inside of his mouth is still pink.
When people talk about “cumulative culture” and corvids passing down knowledge to their young, this is what they mean. It could very well be that another bird in the flock has had positive contact with humans, even this particular human, as their facial recognition skills are remarkable.
Clever baby not only knew how to ask for help, but also understood that the acute pain he was feeling was going to benefit him in the end.
This is exactly how I act whenever I need a doctor for anything that involves needles.
Jesus was a homeless Palestinian anarchist who held protests at oppressive churches, advocated for universal health care and redistribution of wealth, before being arrested for terrorism, tortured and executed for crimes against the state, now go ahead and explain to me why he’d vote conservative. I’ll wait.
