A blog where I post whatever's in my dreamland.... The one I live every day but no one can really see it. Anyway...
Because this episode (A Town Called Mercy) is so much deeper than that. Episode starts with the line
"When I was a child, my favorite story was about a man who lived forever, but whose eyes were heavy with the weight of all he had seen. A man who fell from the stars.”
and it sounds like she’s talking about the Doctor. Then the Gunslinger says he needs to find and kill the Doctor. And now you’re definitely sure this story is about the Doctor, our Doctor. But then you met the doctor Kahler-Jex, a war hero, who killed his own people to save million of lives and bring the piece, then he run away and spent years helping people. Sounds familiar?
"Looking at you, Doctor, is like looking into a mirror almost"
And in the end of the episode when the Gunslinger wants to walk into the desert and self-destruct he don’t see any point of living
"I will walk into the desert and self-destruct. I’m a creature of war. I have no role to play during peace."
the Doctor give him one and make him stay and protect Mercy.
So the last line
"By the time the Gunslinger arrived, the people of Mercy were used to the strange and impossible. Where he came from didn’t matter. As a man once said, “America is a land of second chances.” Do I believe the story? I don’t know. My great grandmother must have been a little girl when he arrived. But next time you’re in Mercy, ask someone why they don’t have a marshall or sheriff, or policeman there. “We got our own arrangement” they’ll say. Then they’ll smile like they got a secret. Like they got their own angel watching out for them. Their very own angel who fell from the stars."
yes, it’s about the Gunslinger, BUT all this episode is a parallel to the Doctor. So this quote is also about the Doctor. In the dark times when he hated himself so much for what he did and who he is, he continued protecting the human race. How he’s still watching and carrying about them. This is why I love this show so much, not everything is so obvious as it seems. It was a long post, but I love this episode so much.
DO YOU EVER WANT TO BE IN A RELATIONSHIP BUT AT THE SAME TIME YOU’RE SCARED OF BEING IN A RELATIONSHIP
