“Have you ever had a secret that just scared the living hell out of you?”

– Lucy Preston

The hardest part about keeping a secret is remembering what lies you’ve told to whom. Who knows what? Who will they tell? The anxiety and the constant fear can make you crazy. And then, sometimes, it’s in hindsight that you discover that you weren’t the only one holding back. How can you be mad and hurt at someone else for the same sins you yourself committed?

“Figure out what you’re fighting for.” Wyatt Logan

Facing a difficult task, one that has to be done but pushes you outside of your comfort zone by miles rather than inches, can be frightening to say the least. That fear dredges up other situations when you felt equally fearful, which can send you into a full-blown panic attack, unless you have a tether. A purpose. A big “why” that makes facing the frightening important enough that you breathe in deeply and push through.

“The Lincolns owe the Booths a great debt,” Robert Lincoln

What if you could go back in time and right a monumental wrong? Yes, there would be repercussions, but wouldn’t it be worth it? To save a great man who was taken too soon, one who was making a huge difference in the lives of tens of thousands of people? The needs of the many who would benefit would far outweigh the needs of the few who might be hurt, right? Or are some tragic things just meant to happen?

“Make your own future,” -Amy (Lucy Preston’s sister)

What if you could go back in time? Would just interacting with people change the present? Or would it take something big like saving those who should have died – or killing ones who should have lived – to affect what you know to be reality?

Dear DocBlogger:

I feel like I’m walking around in a bit of a haze. I’ve got that “tip of the tongue” syndrome where there’s something important and its right there, but I can’t remember it. Things seem familiar, but maybe it was all a dream or a story.

Sweetie, every story ever told really happened.

Hell Bent was a fantastic finale in my opinion. The Doctor got closure, Clara got closure, we discovered what happened to Gallifrey, and the Doctor actually learned something about himself. Plus, we are left with the minute possibility that, like in the final shot, the Doctor and Team Clara/Me might cross paths again.

Dear DocBlogger:

She’s gone and I don’t know what to do. I’m angry and alone. I confess, I never thought we’d be apart. I feel like I’m just going through the motions.

Lonely in Louisiana

 

Dear Lonely:

It may feel like an eternity before you’re “you” again, but have faith in yourself. You’ll find your way home.

This was just heart breaking. I knew I was in trouble when Steven Moffat’s name flew across the screen at the opening of Heaven Sent. There was nothing heavenly about this episode and nothing but first-class acting, a suspenseful plot and a surprise ending that had me shouting at my television. This is probably one of my favorite episodes of the Capaldi era, so maybe it really was Heaven Sent.

Dear DocBlogger:

Together we can solve any problem, I know that. He’s brilliant and I have complete confidence that he will come through. It’s what he does. What we do together. Lately I feel like I’ve been getting a little reckless, but it’s exhilarating! He’ll always come through in a pinch, right?

If you’ve read any of my previous blogs you know what I’m going to say here. This should be the end for Ms. Clara Oswald. Not that I haven’t really enjoyed her. In fact, now that Face the Raven has us facing the music, I’m not sure I want Clara to go. If anything, this episode is preparing us for the inevitable.
