The Doctor explains, about the Perseus device that will help him help Vincent with the rooster, but before he can show it off -- "I had an excellent, if smelly, godmother" -- the dead girl's casket is carried by, on the way to the church's graveyard. They stand silently, in respect. Atop the box is a bouquet of sunflowers. He can't take his eyes off them.
Outside the church, Vincent sets up and they discuss the plan, or lack of plan. "It's a Thing. It's like a plan, but with more greatness." He tries to explain depression to Vincent, and the stigma of mental illness, but Vincent's not interested, because he is doing art. The Doctor is chill for about five seconds and then starts babbling about Michelangelo -- "What a whinger! ...If you're scared of heights, you shouldn't have taken the job" -- and Picasso -- "Ghastly old goat. I kept telling him Concentrate, Pablo, it's one eye, either side of the face" -- and they keep shushing him. Needless to say, cuteness award goes to this scene, with Eleven's monumental ADD actually causing your screen to vibrate.
"Is this how time normally passes? Really slowly," he moans. "In the right order." Something, finally, happens, and the Doctor gets ready to head inside, armed with "overconfidence, [the iPerseus], and a small screwdriver. I'm sorted." He orders Amy to stay outside while he's working, Amy promises, she is lying, Vincent loves her because she is so sassy. Vincent keeps painting, and eventually they run into the church to save him from the rooster.
"Right. Okay. Here's the plan. Amy? Rory?" Not Rory. Vincent. Stupid mistake. Behind a door, the Doctor wonders if the creature -- the unstoppably brutal, unthinking, terrible monster -- might not just want a little chat. "I... Know that no one's talked to you for a pretty long stretch, but please, listen. I also don't belong on this planet. I also am alone. If you trust me, I'm sure we can come to some kind of, you know, understanding." Much more running around, and then they are in the room with it. But it's not coming for them, it's feeling with its snout along the wall. It is blind.
