She chases him around the room and you can almost hear the Benny Hill music and she yanks on his necktie and stops making any kind of sense, and he's freaked out and I guess it's being played for laughs, but Amy is so brittle and weird and warped and obsessed with him and it's in her bedroom where her raggedy shrines to him are everywhere and there she is, going after his junk with the singlemindedness of a Doctor Who fan, and it's just... Gross. There is something gross about it. As a lead-in to the next two episodes it's brilliant, but in the moment it's just wicked creepy. It's not even sad, which I thought it would be.
The Doctor hits pause on her scary little acting-out, and suddenly he's all, "It's you. It's all about you. Everything. It's about you! Amy Pond! Mad. Impossible Amy Pond. I don't know why. I have no idea. But quite possibly the single most important thing in the history of the universe is that I get you sorted out right now." Instead of punching him for once again not saying a goddamn thing in all that random chatter that means anything, and for once again only talking to seem interesting, Amy is all, "I know! Let's BONE!" But no, it's off to the next adventure some more, and he loads Amy's blue balls up into the blue box and... I mean, this is all going to work out and be brilliant. I believe that now. This episode is ridiculous and silly and makes no sense and is full of bullshit and frippery, but you can see from here that shit is about to get awesome.
Keep an eye on what everybody's wearing, don't think too hard about the Weeping Angels, and remember to walk like you can see even when your eyes are closed. Or something.
