Season 5 Episode 13: The Big Bang

The Eleventh Doctor is locked into the Pandorica, Rory has shot Amy and River is trapped inside the exploding Tardis. The universe stopped to exist and only Earth is there in the eye of the exploding Tardis. Somehow the Doctor manages to jump back in time and give Rory instructions how he can get him out of the Pandorica. They leave Amy in the Pandorica and Rory guards her for 2000 years. Young Amelia still remembers the stars and she is able to resurrect Amy. Amy, Rory and the Doctor are reunited but they don't have much time to save the universe before it collapses totally. The Doctor is able to save River and brings her out of the Tardis. When a Dalek shoots the Doctor everything seems to be over but the Doctor is still alive and the last thing he does is piloting the Pandorica into the exploding Tardis. The universe is saved but will someone remember the Doctor?

This season really ended with a bang. The story is sometimes quite complicated with the many time jumps and everything but so many puzzle pieces are put together. Some scenes from the former episodes make more sense now when you know how they are connected and you are really amazed how Steven Moffat has mapped it all out. That's just some brilliant writing he does and I like that everything is somehow connected. The Doctor is able to save the universe and all the people in it but they also forget him because he has to be on the other side of the cracks, so they are able to close. I always wonder if River is the only one who truly remembers the Doctor. Her diary is empty but she has to know who he is or she wouldn't have given it to Amy. Well, we probably never know that for sure. I love the last scenes when Amy finally has a family and she marries Rory. The best thing of course is that she is able to bring the Doctor back cause what would we do without him?
