Spoilery spoil spoil

So I've finally figured out that I can't talk about this week's episode of Doctor Who without bringing up the spoiler I mentioned I'd run across recently, so I'll make a post all about that instead. (And I'm sorry, because I know full well how hard it is not to click on spoilers, even if you don't want to know! But I need to get this out of my system, I guess.)

The spoiler I ran across, that I mentioned in an earlier post, was that Arthur Darvill (Rory) is leaving the show.

So I was TOTALLY expecting him to die in this week's episode (in the doomed-last-stand scene) and then was completely amazed when he didn't! However, I would guess that River's startled/sad reaction to seeing him in the hallway means that he dies (or something else very morbid happens to him) quite soon in her past/our future, i.e. the back half of the season.

Which makes me very sad because I love Rory to bits and I don't want him to die! Or leave! And maybe it's just a rumor that he's leaving? But I think River's reaction is a pretty good confirmation that he's on his way out (and I've already seen some speculation on my flist about it). So I guess I'd better prepare myself.

I'm finding myself less than enthusiastic about the second half of the season. I think it's partly because I'm still kind of on the fence about the revelation regarding River, and partly because I'm still very much in a NOOOO, RORY sort of place. (Though he was seriously awesome this week. I will never stop being a total sucker for not-normally-badass characters getting their badass on. I think Rory appeals to me in a lot of the same ways that Mickey did, in the first couple seasons of New Who, and his character arc seems to follow a similar trajectory.)
