eruthros: Martha Jones smiling! (DW - Martha Jones is awesome)
[personal profile] eruthros
I had this idea last night and I just have to share:


River: she kills a good man, the best man she's ever known.

River doesn't kill the Doctor, of course - he isn't the best man she's ever known.

She kills Rory.

Like, the whole point of this episode is that the Doctor isn't a good man (he has to have rules) - the title isn't about him, really, it's about Rory going to war. So. Rory: he's a good man. (He's not a warrior, he's a nurse.)

And now that he's her dad, who her mom told her stories about when she was just a baby, who's always going to look for her, it's easier to image him as the best man she's ever known. Plus her reaction to Rory at the beginning of the episode in the Centurion outfit, which strongly implies that he's dead already in her timeline. Plus it just feels right. Plus it's that kind of misdirection Stephen Moffat seems to like, where we're told told the truth and it leads to the wrong conclusion.

Also I keep forgetting to get or make Amy and River and Eleven icons, which is sad.
