Today’s Episode: The Power of Three
Writer: Chris Chinball
I hated, dested and despised this episode. Of the first five episodes of this half, this one was the worst. The title invokes that American TV show.. Charmed, where there were 3 witches that used the “Power f Three frequently”. We never did find out why they were taking humans onto the ship, nor the purpose of the pig faced nurses, nor why that little girl was there. Nor was the point of the Tally and Shakri? I’m sorry I was very very lost in that scene. Thus I will only focus on the awesome parts, as this episode really is more centered around Amy and Rory, will they or won’t they continue to travel with the Doctor in the Tardis? Real life or Doctor life?
Thus after the cubes arrive, Unit invades the Pond’s house.. and Rory is well..
The Doctor tried hanging around for four days, and it just didn’t work, so he went off on an adventure.. but when he got on the Tardis.. well…
So, off he went on adventures. The Ponds decided to settle down into real life. Rory’s job goes full time, and Amy says yes to being a bridesmaid. Everything was going smoothly then the Doctor shows up for their anniversary party.. and takes them off on more adventures, thus Amy accidentally marrying Henry the VIII, and making her the Doctor’s mother in law AGAIN, since he marries Liz.. well, will marry. Its supposedly happening in the SPECIAL! Also Rory did this…
Brian gets pissed when they get back, and the Doctor tells him, whoops, been 7 weeks now.. sorry. Thus leading Brian to ask..
BRIAN: What happened to the other people who travel with you?
DOCTOR: Some left me. Some got left behind. And some, not many but, some died. Not them. Not them, Brian. Never them.
This then promps the Doctor to ask Amy and Rory to hang out… since they are not a threat and we are well aware of Brian’s diligence of documenting the cubes, so no need to stare at them. They are getting along much better… love this lovely fish fingers scene, as he’s gotten Rory AND Amy into them too…
Its not quite bad, I’ve had it, the sweet and the sour actually works. Then again instant pudding is different than what they have there in the UK I’m sure.
So one day..
The cubes become active, and wreak havoc, and the Doctor saves the day again. Only after he has this heartbreaking conversation with Amy at the Tower of London, aka Unit headquarters..
DOCTOR: You’re thinking of stopping, aren’t you? You and Rory.
AMY: No. I mean, we haven’t made a decision.
DOCTOR: But you’re considering it.
AMY: Maybe. I don’t know. We don’t know. Well, our lives have changed so much. But there was a time, there were years, when I couldn’t live without you. When just the whole everyday thing would drive me crazy. But since you dropped us back here, since you gave us this house, you know, we’ve built a life. I don’t know if I can have both.
AMY: Because they pull at each other. Because they pull at me, and because the travelling is starting to feel like running away.
DOCTOR: That’s not what it is.
AMY: Oh, come on. Look at you, four days in a lounge and you go crazy.
DOCTOR: I’m not running away. But this is one corner of one country in one continent on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that’s a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond. And there is so much, so much to see, Amy. Because it goes so fast. I’m not running away from things, I am running to them before they flare and fade forever. And it’s all right. Our lives won’t run the same. They can’t. One day, soon maybe, you’ll stop. I’ve known for a while.
AMY: Then why do you keep coming back for us?
DOCTOR: Because you were the first. The first face this face saw. And you’re seared onto my hearts, Amelia Pond. You always will be. I’m running to you, and Rory, before you fade from me.
AMY: Don’t be nice to me. I don’t want you to be nice to me.
DOCTOR: Yeah, you do, Pond, and you always get what you want. They got what they wanted.
AMY: What? Who did?
DOCTOR: The cubes. That’s why they stopped. Come on.
Also this funny scene happens once the cubes become active again and give people heart attacks..
And that’s as far as I want to go. I’m sorry.. such a really rushed ending after so much build-up, and so many blanks.. I can’t even begin to wonder why they didn’t rescue everyone from the spaceship.. what the heck???!!!
Till Tomorrow… I’m off to buy some Kleenex.. as I know I’ll need it.
