Spoilers for everything up through Let's Kill Hitler! Do not read if you haven't seen the ep/don't want to be spoiled.



First of all:

A:KEJFAWLKRJAWLKRJWEALKRJ!!!!!!! HOLY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD ALKDJFAWKLEJR MOFFAT AOIEWFLAKJSF ALEX LKAJERLKWAJ MATT SMITH YOUR FACE ALKEJRWLAKJERALKJ ALEX GET IN MY PANTS ALKEJRLAWKHERLKAWHRAJW MOFFAAAAAAATTTTTT



Okay. Now that that's done. Thoughts! And other stuff. Negatives first (this is me trying to be rational. Watch how it fails):


Nit Picks

- I still don't understand what any of that had to do with Hitler, lol. It didn't make much sense that Melody wanted them to go there in the first place (ie, it wasn't just a random TARDIS crash). So...I'm assuming it was just for the shock value?

- I didn't really want River to be the little girl in the ally in New York, but. Whatever.

- Mels randomly being inserted as Amy's friend growing up.

- The Doctor leaving Melody behind at the end. I get it, but, wtf. "No worries guys, your daughter was a psychopath but she'll be all better now that she's done one good deed! We can leave her to it. So, doll monsters?" *headdesk*

- Predictability. Pretty much the entire episode was horrifically predictable. Mels is Melody? GASP! Melody's still evil? Double gasp! Melody learns her lesson just in time to save the Doctor? TRIPLE GASP. It was pretty much what almost everyone was expecting, I think. (Minus the lack of Hitler, perhaps.)

Note: I don't actually care that it was predictable. At all. I was still holding my breath the entire episode, and that's good enough for me. Even if everything turns out as we think, it'll still be brilliant because of Matt, Alex, Arthur, Karen and Steven. BLIND FAITH: I HAS IT.



Things That Were Awesome

- ALEX FUCKING KINGSTON. YOUR FACE. I WANT TO KNOW HOW IT WORKS. Damn, she was amazing. I loved every bit of it. I honestly believe she's one of the most dynamic actors around; she does everything brilliantly - flirty, funny, sexy, evil, psyhopath!evil, hopeful, desperate, lost, happy, everything. Watching her go from psycho!Melody to totally-confused-and-mind-fucked!Melody in about 2.5 seconds was amazing, and I just love that even though she was nuts and horribly disturbed, you could still see traces of River in Alex's performance. It's like, she wasn't an entirely different person, you could see how Melody could eventually become River. Brilliant brilliant brilliant. ALL THE AWARDS TO ALEX AND HER AMAZING FACE and boobs. Yeah. I noticed that. Duh.

- Matt Smith. I love you forever and you will always be my Doctor. The end.

- Rory Fucking Pond. I love you to death. I LOVE how he's become such a strong, brave character. He started out as a tag-a-long and now he's either more ahead of or equal to Amy, which I adore. I'm so glad they're on the same footing now with the Doctor and with everything that happens to them.

- Rory punching Hitler in the face.

- Rory locking Hitler in the Cupboard.

- Rory punching a not!Nazi robot in the face after saying "Heil!" to distract him.

- "You will experience a tingling sensation and then death."

- The "Doctor" crop circle.

- Appearances by Martha, Donna and Rose, and the Doctor's reaction to each of them. (Oh, bb. You break my heart.)

- "Well, I was on my way to this gay gypsy bar mitzvah for the disabled when I suddenly thought, 'Gosh, the Third Reich's a bit rubbish! I think I'll kill the Fuhrer!' Who's with me?" ...I may have shot soda out my nose at that. Maybe. I'll deny it if you ask, though.

- Did I mention Alex Kingston's face?

- The 'battle of wills' scene in Hitler's office between River and the Doctor with the guns/bananas/lipstick. Brilliant. I love that even evil she's almost as clever as he is. ...even if she's a psychopath.

- "River, what have you done?"
"Oh, River, River, River. More than a friend, I think."


AKLEFJAWLKERJWA HELLS YES SHE IS.

- "It was never going to be a gun for you, Doctor. The man of peace. Who understands every kind of warfare, except, perhaps, the cruelest."

OUCH. DAMN, THAT IS AN EXCELLENT LINE. BUT ALSO, OUCH.

- LOL, jumping off buildings even as a psychopath! CONTINUITY APPROVE.

- The fact that she calls herself a psychopath. So heartbreaking. My poor fucked up bb. :(

- The Doctor begging Melody to save Amy and Rory. And Melody doing it not because they're her parents (which, again, ouch, but because he asked. Because something about his determination resonated with her. Aaand probably because of whatever he told her when they cut to Amy and Rory, lol. (I DEMAND INSERT FIC. [livejournal.com profile] tenacious_err I AM LOOKING AT YOU.)

- The look on the Doctor's face when he says "Spoilers."

- The Doctor touching his hair when Melody is essentially feeling herself up, lol. I love it.

- The Doctor putting his hand over his eyes at the 'Benjamin' bit. LOLFOREVER.

- WEE AMY AND RORY!! SO FUCKING CUTE OMG. Poor Rory, they really weren't very nice to him. BUT STILL. He's been in love with Amy forever and the look on her face when she figures it out (lol at Melody hooking her parents up so that she can exist) and runs after him! SO ADORABLE.

- "Penny in the air."



Things That Were So Awesome I Can Barely Articulate It / Things That Hit All My Kinks


- "This is what they were building. My bespoke psychopath."
"I'm all yours, sweetie."
"Only River Song gets to call me that."


MY HEART ANITA BUT MY HEARTTTTTTT. NGH. LOVED IT. HELL YES SHE DOES. RIVER/DOCTOR OTP FOR LIFE.


- THE TARDIS TAUGHT RIVER TO FLY HER. NOT ONLY THAT, SHE WAS BORN WITH THE KNOWLEDGE. TARDIS/RIVER FOREVERRRR KINK KINK KINK YOU HIT IT SO HARD, MOFFAT. I LOVE YOU.

- RIVER SAVING THE DOCTOR. RIVER BEING THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN SAVE THE DOCTOR. KINKITY KINK KINK KINKKKKKKK

- RIVER GIVING UP HER REGENERATIONS. MOAR ALEX!!!! ALEX FOREVER!!!! ALEKJRELKWJR!!!

- SNOGGINGGGGGGG!! NOT ONLY SNOGGING, BUT TIME SNOGGING! SNOGGING WITH REGENERATIONS! SNOGGING WITH TIMEY STUFF! AND ALSO SNOGGGINNNGGGGG.

- "No, she isn't. She's going to be amazing."

- The Doctor telling her something. IDK what it was but I WANT TO KNOW. WHAT WAS HIS MESSAGE FOR RIVER AND WHY DID SHE SAY "I"m sure she knows?" TELL ME MOFFAT TELL MEEEEEEEE. Also, "Find River." Find her in yourself is what he meant, and damn if that isn't beautiful.

- KISSINNNGGGGGG. With the very first "Hello Sweetie!" ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
