FUCK YOU, DOCTOR. Don’t you fucking DARE tell Amy what her goddamn name is now! Yeah, yeah, you had to make her lose her faith in you as her saviour blah blah blah, but seriously? Revoking her name, which is not some fancy nickname or pet name you gave her but is actually HER NAME and making her fucking Amy Williams? Like, handing her over to her husband?! Off you pop now, go be a good little wifey. No more Pond. WHAT THE FUCK?!
[[Reblogging because I’m sorry, this bugged me, and Moffat needs to have a sit down with a room of some very nice, mild feminists (if anyone can find any) and have his misogyny explained to him and they need to extract a promise to try harder not to pull this kind of crap.]]
You know, I thought this symbolized something. Ah… kinda like…. That… That Amy doesn’t depend on him anymore. She should depend on Rory. So he used Rory’s last name (which in a sense is still technically hers) to show that she doesn’t need to wait for him anymore. She has what she needs in Rory.
Or something… like that. Yeah.
MOFFAT DIDN’T EVEN FUCKING WRITE THE EPISODE
To me he called her Amy Williams because he was telling her to stop being Amelia Pond, the little girl who waited in her garden all night long for him- a man.
That’s how I saw it too, and I think he was even talking about himself, that he needed to stop thinking of her as the little girl waiting for him to rescue her and see her as she was, a wife and mother.
