* BittersweetEnding: Jamie and Zoe make it out alive. The Games are shut down. The War Lord and his cronies are killed. The War Chief [[TheNthDoctor seemingly]] dies.

The Doctor is executed for his [[MysteriousPast various crimes]] (in the sense that he is forced to regenerate), sent in exile to earth, and stripped of his knowledge of time travel.

The Doctor, Jamie and Zoe land in the middle of no-man's land during [[WorldWarI World War I]] - or so it seems. They're taken prisoner and tried as spies, with the Doctor sentenced to execution.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens The Time Lords]], guardians of history. They sort out the troubles with the Games and return the survivors to their correct times with LaserGuidedAmnesia to keep the events secret. Sure, they also find the Doctor guilty of [[AlienNonInterferenceClause meddling in the affairs]] of the less advanced races, but they [[{{Understatement}} basically give him parole and community service.]] Also, considering we see in this serial how dangerous a renegade Time Lord can be, their non-interference except for very important events makes sense.
