So that’s it? Now they just stop looking for baby Melody because she grows up to be River/Mels? They’re fine with that- with the fact that they don’t get to raise their daughter? Fuck this.
No, they’re not fine. Why would you assume they’re fine? The Wedding of River Song proved that Amy most definitely is not alright with any of this.
But they can’t do anything about it anymore. The little girl in Florida was Melody, their timelines interwoven in her childhood in a way which makes bringing their baby home impossible. Mels was Melody, once again, a constant in Amy’s and Rory’s history which they can’t just erase. It’s fixed, interlocked.
There was a hope there, that they would be able to find Melody earlier, but Berlin dashed it. This is how they get Melody back, not a baby shortly after Demon’s Run, not a child after what happened in America. But a grown woman whose youth they got to experience, never knowing just who she was to them.
"You took my baby from me and hurt her. And now she’s all grown up and she’s fine, but I’ll never see my baby again."
They stop looking, but not because they don’t grieve what they lost. It’s because they have no option of ever regaining it.
