It’s heartbreaking how River pleads with him to listen to her. To at least hear her. Because now she’d been to the Library. And the last thing she remembers is a young Doctor who wouldn’t listen, one she had to save by giving up her own life. And so she begins to loose it and in desperation tries to slap him because if it worked on Vastra, maybe it could work on him too. But it doesn’t work because he’s looking right at her. He’s… touching her. And he’s — angry. Because she should have known! But she doesn’t. So he reveals to her what she’s failed to see since they’ve been together. That he’d learned from his mistakes. That he had always listened. Then he brings her hand up against his chest and she finally gets it. The she’d been dead to him all along and it never stopped him from hearing her. So why would it start now?
