Is this world protected? Because you’re not the first lot to come here. Oh, there have been so many. And what you’ve got to ask is, what happened to them?

Why did you say six months? This matters. This is important.

This is such a great moment. Amy is angry, she is furious at the dashing of all her hopes. At the childhood spent chasing after the Raggedy Man. At the fact that he dares to come back and ask where she went.
And yet.
She goes along with him, follows him on a madcap adventure, gets left behind again, and still chooses to go with him. Because she wants something more than her ordinary existence. Because he’s lonely. Because he did, after all, come back.
Because she forgives him. She has a huge, ferociously loving heart which she carefully hides, and she forgives him. It’s the first step on the long road Amelia Pond will take towards finding peace and accepting love, and it is one big leap of faith. Amy Pond was left behind for fourteen years but she forgave the Doctor anyway. That’s who she is. She loves with her whole heart or not at all. She is willing to forgive.
But everything that comes at the end of this episode wouldn’t mean as much if this moment at the beginning hadn’t happened. Amelia has raged at the Doctor, at the universe, but he is so sad and lonely and she wants those days in the Tardis so much that she is willing to risk loss for a new friendship. Her rage is never invalidated by the narrative, but she is able to rise above it and decide that she wants this friendship more than she wants vengeance. Being strong doesn’t mean being unforgiving; sometimes, forgiveness is strength. What a powerful message to send.
