Do you ever wonder about Balthazar’s vessel? Like, what if he was a button-down, conservative Christian guy who was so honoured to be chosen by an angel. And then the first night Balthazar has him as his vessel he gets drunk & has a huge fucking orgy.

I always thought there was so much power in this scene. The moment when The Doctor takes his wife’s hand, the hand he thought wasn’t broken. The hand she told him wasn’t broken. You can see not the hurt but the worry in his eyes. He’s not even mad he’s just frightened. He’s not even worried about losing Amy ; The way his wife is breathing is scaring him. He’s never seen her in pain like this. Meanwhile, River looks terrified. She isn’t worried about her hand. She’s worried about what she’s just done to The Doctor. She’s ruined his hopes of Amy being alright, but he’s not even worried about that. He’s worried about her. This episode really reminded us that The Doctor loved his wife. He cared for her and worried about her.
