And I got Matt and Karen! The two awesomest people! And I will tell you, no matter how much I hate it -- and I swear this week is as bad as it gets, although next week is bullshit too -- I don't care beyond that. The only reason it seems different is because I skipped over the parts I hated, when I was telling you how much I loved Martha, and Donna. You didn't get to hear how bad it got, how mad I got. The only difference is that we're back week-to-week. And this episode, more than next week and slightly less than last week, is bullshit. It can get better. I believe without even trying that next week and the week after that, and the week after that, will be amazing. And when I say this episode is retarded, just complete and utter trash, that's all I'm saying. I believe it can be better. And in the case of this show, I know it will. To me, that is a powerful statement. I'm not sure what's complicated about it, or what I didn't say about that to lead you astray otherwise. I am always willing to wait until next week. I wish you would, too.
The little girl spots Amy immediately, because she dropped her papers in the first place so the Doctor would leave her alone. They aimlessly -- although you would think Mandy would know more specifically -- wander the halls until they reach a place you're not supposed to go. The only point of this scene, of course, is that Amy does a lot of hoo-hoo and hee-hee trying to tempt the girl beyond the red line and into the "hole" where all the previous shit leads.
Now, again, symbolically we're in easy territory: The thing that makes Amy special is that she doesn't give a fuck. And in the context of this society, it's essential that she doesn't give a shit. So it's no surprise that Mandy is terrified and Amy -- the newborn, the time traveler for the first time -- doesn't give a shit about her terror. And of course, because she is spunky and -- let's face it -- awesome, she lifts the curtain and the rope and heads right into the tent, silly faces getting angry, while Mandy spouts well-intentioned world-building nonsense ("There's a travel pipe down by the airlocks, if you've got stamps") and Amy woggles eyebrows at her adorably. "Don't mind me, never could resist a Keep Out sign," she says, and scoffs when she hears we don't talk about it: "Because you're not supposed to, you don't? Watch and learn."
