Would You Go Along With Someone Like Me?

The Doctor tells her not to be scared, as they are going, and the DL just giggles and acts horrible, and Amy has her one-per-episode shivering fit about being left alone in the dark by the ones who are supposed to be protecting her.

Rory drags Amy's leaden body up the stairs, into the bright yellow nursery, and locks the door behind them. She's asleep on the floor and it's super scary. He plays with a mobile above the crib for a second, and then gets all angry looking down at them in the garden, poking at the TARDIS and getting ready to assault him. It's fairly awful, even with the ponytail, to see him there with the door blocked and his pregnant wife on the floor and a whole bunch of monsters coming after him.

Inside the butcher's freezer, the Doctor sonicks something or something and they stop with the eyeballs and also close their eyeballs that are located in their eyes, so he pushes past them. There's a kid in a van who is about to get dusted, but the Doctor jumps in the van and somehow they are safe. Then they drive around the town leisurely picking up everybody who's not old. The old people are mostly moving very slow and not doing anything terrible to them, just sort of menacing random groups of white people and being super old. I guess when your entire village mostly just likes to hang out on benches all day, things could catch you by surprise.

The DL pops in to needle Amy about how the Doctor is constantly leaving her places and not apologizing, and promises he never will. Then he changes into a silky robe and sort of threatens to rape Amy. Um, Truman Capote dressed like a flamenco dancer is like the least threatening thing I can imagine, sexually speaking. Also, that is so gross. Also, if you think that is the scariest thing you can say to Amy Pond, you don't get her. (Also, why go there at all? What is the point of that? Is this a Doctor-reversion thing, like the Master always hitting his wife?) "The Doctor knows you, but he's not telling me who you are. And he always does. Takes him a while sometimes, but he tells me. So you're something different."

The DL tells her she'll never be the one the Doctor truly trusts, or else he would tell her his name. Which is just ugly, dude. Amy can't be expected to know what a big deal that was. It's almost like the DL is purposefully trying to drive Amy away from the Doctor, wouldn't you say?

Her faith is unshakeable. The DL points down at the two of them: "You ran away with a handsome hero. Would you really give him up for a bumbling country doctor who thinks the only thing he needs to be interesting is a ponytail? ...Maybe it's better than loving and losing the Doctor. Pick a world and this nightmare will all be over. They'll listen to you. It's you they're waiting for. Amy's men. Amy's choice."
