The opening scene shows Danny answering a phone-call from Clara. Yet when you see the screen on Clara's phone, it is showing that Danny is calling Clara. And to make it worse, it is the screen you get while the phone is ringing and you have the red and green buttons to accept or reject the call. See more »

There was a peacefulness and quietness that marked the beginning of Dark Water with Clara and Danny picking up where they left off from Forest of the Night with Clara finding a way to tell Danny the whole truth. this peacefulness is promptly ripped away from Stephen Moffat. We then witness a Doctor Who companion n go properly mad and begin a treasure hunt throughout the Tardis for the seven keys with the mission of destroying the keys. Clara implores the Doctor that time can be rewritten. The Doctor replies that there are consequences and tells Clara that she should go to Hell. She replies that she probably deserved that and starts to exit the Tardis. The Doctor inquires of Clara where is she going because they are taking the Tardis to Hell.
We are greeted upon the arrival of the Tardis in the Nethersphere by Missy surrounded by skeletons. Moffat pulls at your emotional heart strings to figure out what happened to Danny Pink. We also want a resolution to who exactly is Missy and the purpose of the Nethersphere. We receive a chilling revelation about what happens to humans when they reach the Nethersphere.
Moffat being the master of misdirection occupies our attention with the Danny/ Clara drama. We also find out too late about the true nature of the Skeletons which turns out to be an old menace. Finally, the Doctor and Clara discover the true identity of the mysterious Missy. The viewer is left at the end of the episode by Moffat in a place of mortal peril and many left hiding behind their couch.
