Great Mother of Moffat! River Song is… (Spoilers)
Today as some of you know was the Mid-Season finale of Doctor Who. And as expected, Steven Moffat kept us on our toes til the very end. It was revealed quite a while ago that the identity of River Song would be revealed in the last minutes of today’s episode and for months now everyone on Tumblr and the rest of the internet has been guessing what that identity was.
Today’s episode was absolutely brilliant as always but I’m a bit sad to say that I actually figured out the identity of River before the episode even aired. Thanks to Tumblr, I knew that Rory and Amy’s baby was named Melody Pond and it wasn’t that big of a leap from Melody Pond to River Song, also, the quote from “The Doctor’s Wife” episode where Idris/TARDIS said “The only water in the forest is the River.” So, yeah, I guessed that River was Amy’s daughter but still, I feel like Moffat has a lot more up his sleeve for the second part of the episode airing in September. (I can’t wait that long!!!) I feel sort of like he’s lulled us into a sense of security and he’ll rip us right back out of is as he always does. But I love that he does that, he’s the biggest troll ever but he’s absolutely amazing because of it! He always keeps us guessing and when we think we have everything figured out, BAM! He completely changes the plot. It’s wonderful. But yeah, I just wanted to write about the episode seeing how it was kind of a big deal and I’m quite obsessed. If any of you have any thoughts/opinions about the episode, I would LOVE to hear them!
It’s your daughter’s name in the language of the forest. Except they don’t have a word for pond because the only water in the forest is the river. The Doctor will find your daughter and he will care for her, whatever it takes. And I know that. It’s me. I’m Melody. I’m your daughter.
P.S. Heres the only thing we have about the next episode besides the title… :(erH-6vd8C5o
