The potential divorce of Amy and Rory hits me like a truck, to the point where I don’t even like watching this scene. But oh god, I was screencapping it and…Amy’s eyes. She’s putting on a catty attitude and pretending like she barely cares she’s breaking up with her husband, but she looks so old and tired and her eyes look so dead.
When rewatching Asylum of the Daleks I couldn’t help but notice Amy’s PA looks, dresses and sounds a lot like Rory. Who wants to bet she hired him on purpose, trying to subtly drive her husband further away?
“I don’t care that you got old. I care that we didn’t grow old together.”

Rory and Amy - Reversed gender characteristics
It really creates a interesting dynamic, Amy has issues settling, she changes jobs, while Rory has a typical feminine job. Amy loves Rory, but was always less intrigued with the idea of getting married and settling down, while Rory never questioned it. Rory is more caring towards others, a characteristic usually assigned to female characters, while Amy have a habit of being somewhat rude, and may be perceived as cold. Rory is better at expressing his feelings and showing emotions than Amy, who have a habit hiding her emotions behind sarcasm and rude name calling. Amy also have somewhat of a habit of being more physically violent than Rory, and more comfortable with the idea of guns. It doesn’t mean Amy doesn’t have feminine aspects - she did work as a model, and Rory enjoys his cars, but I think mainly they fight society’s idea on gender roles.
