I HAD TO MAKE A GIF BECAUSE I COULDN’T FIND ONE
AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO SAW THIS
You now realize that the reason that the angels didn’t get her here is because THE CAMERA COUNTED AS SOMEONE WATCHING THEM.
THE ONE IN THE BACK MOVED! THE ONE IN THE BACK FUCKING MOVED!
BECAUSE SHE WASN’T LOOKING YET AND OUR VIEW WAS BLOCKED BY HER
oh I just remembered this episode was written by
wait for it
This explains so fucking much
But wait, my brother pointed out that in Flesh and Stone, WE SAW THEM MOVE. When Amy fell and the angels realized the couldn’t see, we saw their heads turn
This is why the angels were so much scarier in their first appearance and kinda a disappointment in their subsequent ones imo. Moffat just tried to make them scarier and just ended up making them silly in some ways by contradicting things we already knew (the fourth wall working as a set of eyes on them made the audience feel as if they were impacting the episode and also made it feel almost as if the angels could affect us the same way we affected them) and by going for the big scares that don’t make any sense when you stop to think about them (the Statue of Liberty is just one big plot hole, no one saw it on it’s walk from the bay? no one noticed it was gone? why does it show up and not do anything even when Amy and Rory aren’t looking at it?)
every once in a while i think about spiderman 3 and get rlly uncomfortable
In the theater, for the midnight premiere of this movie, the dance scene started and everything was silent… and then from the back row there was a scandalized scream of horror:
“WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW?!”
