Love Capaldi, love Clara, love Missy. Dark Water is an emotional roller coaster from start to finish. I think this episode is highlighted by the scene in the Tardis right after the lava scene. 12 forgiving her and helping her is everything. It shows that though he can come off as dark and grumpy, he is still kind and sweet inside. Missy is hilarious and tremendous. Love her interactions w/ Dr. Chang and 12. Again it's very emotional w/ Clara and The Doctor, and Clara and Danny. Like I just said when talking about the TPO and TBB, the second part isn't as good, BUT it is still good. I personally, love that Missy was just doing this to show 12 that they're the same and that she wants him back as her best friend. The good man thing is okay. The Danny thing is okay. But the ending between Clara and The Doctor here is heartbreaking and beautiful. It was a perfect end to the series 8 arc. I think a very underrated 12th doctor line is when Clara thanks him for making her feel special and then he says "Thank you for exactly the same". Beautiful. And then of course here comes Santa!
