Cut to the trio on horseback, riding to Stonehenge. River and Amy have a Timey-Wimey conversation about their goodbye [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E5FleshAndStone last time]]; "I'll see you again when the Pandorica opens", River had said. Maybe she did say that, but she hasn't yet. Maybe she will have. They move aside a stone and go under Stonehenge. Inside, they find a huge box carved with complicated patterns and symbols: the Pandorica. More than just a fairytale, then, and something's trapped inside. "There was a goblin. Or a trickster, or a warrior. A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. ''The'' most feared being in all the cosmos", the Doctor says. Indestructible, can't be caught or reasoned with; it would just drop out of the sky and tear down their world. How did it get caught? Like all fairy-tales, a good wizard came and [[{{Foreshadowing}} tricked him]]. Amy takes a moment to mention that it's a bit like Pandora's Box, her favourite book when she was a kid; all the bad things trapped inside it that came into the world when the box opened. This arouses the Doctor's suspicion: Amy's favourite subject at school, the Romans, and now her favourite childhood book. "Never overlook a coincidence. Unless you're busy, then always overlook a coincidence."

* StableTimeLoop: The Alliance creates the Pandorica based on a book Amy read, which recounts the myth of [[Main/SealedEvilInACan Pandora's Box]]. Since the Pandorica is shown to transmit its signal to all time periods, it's implied to be the original inspiration for the myth.

** Rory is no longer making a fool out of himself when he tries to fight. Now he's a roman centurion, a proper roman, filled with "roman stuff" who can bring down a cyberman!

** In "The Eleventh Hour", Rory told us that Amy got him to dress up as the Doctor. We learn from a photo in this episode that he also dressed up as a Roman.

* HiddenVillain: Even though we know how they caused the cracks (by destroying the TARDIS), we ''still'' don't know who the real BigBad is.
