Last episode, we found out that the Amy we've been seeing was not, in fact, Amy. It was an avatar, making her constantly believe that she was walking around unharmed, while her real self was held captive in a place called Demons Run. She's given birth there to a baby girl named Melody, guided by Madame Kovarian -- the eyepatch lady -- and surrounded by an entire military. But she's not scared. Because she knows that the baby's real father will come for them. A man who has travelled across the galaxy. A man who has lived for centuries. A man [[ShipTease known as the]] . . . [[BaitAndSwitch Last Centurion]].

*** This is accompanied by shots of the infiltrator aboard a Cyberman ship, who is seen using the sonic screwdriver -- and, yes, it's actually Rory.

* ChasteHero: The Doctor is completely oblivious to the notion that Melody might have been conceived in the TARDIS until pushed by Madame Vastra. He works through the fifth series and comes to the realisation that the first time they were together on the TARDIS after the reboot was . . . their wedding night.

* ThePlan: The Doctor's plan to take Demons Run. Disguise himself as a Headless Monk and start an EnemyCivilWar amongst the enemy factions. Colonel Manton gets around this by ordering his forces to lay down their arms to get the Monks to back off . . . leading the Doctor to call in the Judoon and Silurian forces to capture them in one fell swoop. Manton tries to counter ''this'' by using the base's automatic distress signal . . . at which point the Doctor orders in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E3VictoryOfTheDaleks the air force of Spitfires armed with Dalek weaponry to blow their communications array sky high.]] How much of this he planned and how much he [[IndyPloy improvised along the way]] is anyone's guess.

** Since the cot is the Doctor's, and River seems to point at its engraved Gallifreyan text when the Doctor asks her who she is, there were also hints that River could be a future incarnation of him. This was already hinted at in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E4TheDoctorsWife "The Doctor's Wife"]] when it was revealed that Time Lords can change sex when regenerating. It was Creator/DavidTennant's personal pet theory while filming River's [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E8SilenceInTheLibrary first]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E9ForestOfTheDead appearance]], and when he revealed that to Creator/StevenMoffat during the audio commentary, Moffat was amused enough to tease the fans with it a little in this episode.
