Can we just take a moment to appreciate Jenna Coleman right here? I mean, holy wow. She goes from our Clara, worried about saving the planet, to this other wordly villain in a heartbeat.
The whole episode Clara has been pretty normal but something’s been off. She seemed unconcerned about little Sandeep and his obviously creepy parents. She went back to her apartment for seemingly nothing instead of jumping into action. Her middle age comment to Jac was odd and her almost sadistic enjoyment when preparing to shoot the Zygon pods was unsettling.
And, let’s face it, there was a distinct lack of heart eyes for her Time Lord (although I think Bonnie might have slipped up at one point).
But really she’s so close to Clara that it’s easy to not suspect anything. Until you know. Jenna Coleman absolutely killed it. Her secret flies under the radar so subtly until it’s finally revealed and then you’re going, “I knew it!” Plus, it must be said, she looks drop dead gorgeous here. Especially that last gif. Damn. Make her a Bond villain or something.
‘I still see her, so it’s not like saying goodbye to Jenna in person, but you say goodbye to the character, and it becomes the focus of your emotion and perhaps all of the things you’d like to say to that person – like how wonderful she’s been to me.’
