* EvilVersusOblivion: Several of the Doctor's greatest enemies have teamed up to save the universe and all of time and space from being destroyed, because obviously that includes them. Unfortunately for The Doctor, however, he's the one they believe will be responsible for said apocalypse.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: During the Doctor's phone-call with River, while she's at Amy's house, you can see a Roman briefly wielding the Cyberman's weapon, trying to look {{Badass}}. Several of them, in fact. As the scene continues, it's clear that they've lined up to have their turn at it.

* Foreshadowing: The Doctor notices something's oddly coincidental when he founds out that Pandora's Box was Amy's favourite book, and Roman history was Amy's favourite subject.

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!
