moved and merged Trivia from the main page
* InMemoriam: Dedicated to Creator/ElisabethSladen. Unlike past dedications in ''Doctor Who'', this dedication card ''opens'' the episode rather than ending it. Meanwhile, BBC America placed it at the end of the episode. BBC America also made one other change to their version: rather than just the black slate, they added a shot from [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E3SchoolReunion "School Reunion"]] of Creator/ElisabethSladen walking away from the camera, [[TearJerker only to turn around and wave at the audience before the card faded to black.]]

* RealLifeRelative: Mark Sheppard plays Canton Everett Delaware in 1969. His father William Morgan Sheppard plays old Canton for the scene at Lake Powell in 2011.

Misuse. It's Genre Savvy, not just "savvy".
Meanwhile, Amy excuses herself to go to the bathroom, because she's feeling sick. In there, she has an encounter with the shadow she saw earlier: a terrifying alien in a nice suit. The thing casually kills another woman, and warns Amy that she must tell the Doctor something. As soon as anyone looks away from these aliens, though, they forget that they have ever seen them. Amy, in a GenreSavvy mood, manages to take a photo of the creature using her phone.

* GenreSavvy: While's he's being arrested by the Secret Service, the Doctor successfully predicts and appropriately responds to River fixing the TARDIS scanner and saying "I hate you."

* RefusalOfTheCall: Because his friends won't tell him who sent the envelopes, The Doctor initially refuses to go to 1969 like he's asked, insisting that Amy and Rory go home while River returns to prison.

YMMV
* MeaningfulName: The Doctor is shot at Lake Silencio (named in the latter half of the season). Really?

** The Doctor has died, [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt seemingly]] permanently, and the surviving companions are fiercely debating what to do now. Cue younger Doctor stepping out of the gents' to crack jokes and ask what everyone seems so broken up about.

* MyDeathIsOnlyTheBeginningMyDeathIsOnlyTheBeginning: The Future!Doctor invited three friends to witness his death and they assume it is because he has a plan to avoid it with the help of them and his own younger self.

** This line is also probably {{Foreshadowing}} considering this is a Future!Doctor, especially because he uses the word "remembers" possibly referring to the the Silence's forget-me effect

* PapaBear: When the Doctor asks if his companions are being threatened, you can practically feel him ready to kick some ass.

* PowerOfTrust: Double Subverted; when River tells the Doctor that he has to trust her not to reveal what's going on, he bluntly points out that, as much as he likes her, he knows barely anything about her -- and what he ''does'' know suggests that she's a murderer, and has possibly murdered ''him'' at some point. She might be many things, but "trustworthy" isn't exactly one of them. He is, however, willing to trust Amy.

%%* VaderBreath: The astronaut. * VikingFuneral: For the Doctor on the lake. * WhamEpisode: What all the signs are pointing to. BigBad of the series making a first appearance? Check. Main character [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt seemingly]] KilledOffForReal? Check. On top of this, the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E11TheLodger fake TARDIS]] returns, probably connected with the Silence; and Amy is ''pregnant''.
