The Doctor has taken Madge's advice and dropped in on Amy and Rory. He knocks on their TARDIS-blue door, which Amy throws open with a water gun in one hand, expecting more carolers. She stares at him in shock. Turns out it's been two years since they last saw each other. She squirts him a few times then confesses that River told them he wasn't really dead. "Of course she did," he says with annoyance. "Hey, she's a good girl," River's mother says. After pretending they don't want to hug each other, they give in with mutual laughter and embrace. Rory joins them and tells the Doctor there's a place set for him at the table. They always set a place for him, just in case. Amy squirts him once more for good measure. The Doctor stands on the threshold for a long while, clasping his hands together like the old man that he is, and then finally takes that all-important step inside. He reaches up to touch his cheek, surprised to find happy tears there. It's a Christmas miracle!
