I think the reason Rory got to be so bamf in this episode was that the whole point of it was to build him up. The fake-out at the very beginning, where Amy was telling Melody about her father, “the last of his kind,” who “looks young but has lived for hundreds of years”, was one of my favorite parts of the whole thing. It highlights the similarities between Rory and the Doctor, but it also stresses that Rory is a powerful mythic figure now in his own right, and I think that’s something absolutely vital to establish before the end of the series.
