Rosanna has decided to kill herself, I think by getting raped and eaten by her kids. I can think of better ways to go. Also, why are you taking off your clothes? Your clothes don't exist! But her simple white shift as she stands there, totally sad and broken, with her hair down and her sad eyes... Ah, it's nice. She is the finest fucking thing. The Doctor feels super duper sad for her, and she's like, "One city, to save an entire species?" Still too high. He finally explains why he's been so okay with the Last of the Time Lord thing, and it makes sense after three Doctors: "I told you, you can't go back and change time. You mourn, but you live." Rosanna is not having it. But first she gets one more dig in there: "Tell me, Doctor. Can your conscience carry the weight of another dead race? Remember us. Dream of us." She dies, it's sad, he's sad, but whattaya gonna do.
The Doctor offers to give Amy away, since her family is as nonexistent as the ducks in the duckpond, and because he's still trying to get everybody to agree on their relationship. Like, whatever it is, it needs to just be one unambiguous thing. Which is one of the fun things about next week, and the season as a whole. Rory offers to let them have some more adventures without them -- why? -- but the Doctor and Amy ask him to stay. So Amy hops in the air and goes into the TARDIS to make tea, and goes, "Hey, look at this! Got my spaceship, got my boys. My work here is done."
The way she says it makes it not awful, but then it becomes awful because Rory and the Doctor protest for a moment and then agree that they are "her boys," and it's just so gross. That is not power, that is the illusion of power, first of all, and second of all it's the kind of thing a person would write if they were into getting their testicles stepped on or being forced to clean the kitchen. Anyway, the Doctor tells Rory to listen to something, but all Rory can hear is Silence. Well, and the sound of a few more anvils hitting pavement.
Next week: Truly awesome.
