Inside, the Doctor is still pretending he doesn't help people anymore. He's in the middle of a rant when he notices he's once more wearing his trademark bow tie. "I didn't know I'd put it on," he murmurs. Behind him, the Govern-Ice reconstitutes herself. He tries to sonic her, but she's apparently learned not to melt. He grabs Clara and the children and runs down the stairs. They run into Captain Latimer, who is none too pleased to see this strange man in his house. Before he can give the Doctor a thrashing, the maid runs through the room fussing about all the snowmen that have suddenly appeared outside.
Madame Vastra and Jenny arrive at the front door. "Good evening," Vastra says. "I'm a lizard woman from the dawn of time and this is my wife." The maid screams and runs away, only to be met by Strax. "This dwelling is under attack," he tells her. "Remain calm, human scum!" The maid screams some more, then faints. The children don't seem especially upset and Captain Latimer seems more confused by the Doctor calling his governess "Clara" than by anything else. It seems that "Miss Montague" has been going by a different first name while not working as a barmaid. To add to the mix, the Govern-Ice has started down the stairs towards them. Jenny throws some kind of tech-grenade that traps her behind a force field.
Everybody runs off to the study to formulate a plan. The Doctor, with input from Clara, figures out that the snow wants the Govern-Ice so that it can make copies. Simeon probably should have staked out the pond and grabbed her as soon as she popped out, but TV villains aren't always the best planners. When the doorbell rings, the Doctor strikes out to answer it. Clara follows after him and plants a big ol' kiss on him. He flails in his usual "Ew, girl cooties!" sort of way, but he doesn't seem entirely opposed to the kiss. Some will argue that the Doctor is married and should say as much to anyone inclined to make a pass at him, but... eh. Monogamy seems like a tricky thing for time travelers and the Doctor did sort of marry River after she died. So, depending on how you look at it, he's either single, married or a widower... or all three at once. Anyway, it's Simeon at the door. It was rather polite of him to ring the bell instead of just barging in, don't you think? He and the Doctor scowl at each other for a while. Finally, Simeon says, "Release her to us. You have five minutes." He has an army of toothy snowmen behind him. What's he waiting for?
