Quickly picking himself up, [[Eleventh Doctor|the Doctor]] tells everyone to look up, as he begins pacing around and pointing the [[the Doctor's sonic screwdriver|sonic screwdriver]] at their footing. A confused Amy asks the Doctor what she is looking at. Exasperated at Amy's inability to grasp the obvious, the Doctor reminds her that the power is still on in the crashed ship, so what else is on? The artificial gravity!
 
Quickly picking himself up, [[Eleventh Doctor|the Doctor]] tells everyone to look up, as he begins pacing around and pointing the [[the Doctor's sonic screwdriver|sonic screwdriver]] at their footing. A confused Amy asks the Doctor what she is looking at. Exasperated at Amy's inability to grasp the obvious, the Doctor reminds her that the power is still on in the crashed ship, so what else is on? The artificial gravity!
   
The Doctor explains that shooting the [[gravity globe]] caused an updraft, allowing them to be caught in the ''[[Byzantium (ship)|Byzantium]]''{{'}}s [[gravity]] field once they jumped. They have landed upside down on the [[Spacecraft|ship]]'s hull; even if they jumped again, they would still be in the ship's gravity field. Octavian quickly notices that the [[Weeping Angel]]s are beginning to look more like themselves; within an hour they'll be an army, the Doctor notes. The Doctor opens the door, telling everyone to get in. Amy wonders how. The Doctor tells her its just a corridor; the gravity orientates to the floor. Everyone heads inside as the Angels pop the lights outside the entrance.

Right as the door shuts behind them, the Doctor notes the Angels arrived within the first few seconds after the door closed they are not [[quantum lock]]ed in the dark. Making matters worse is the way to the secondary flight deck is shutting, despite the Doctor's attempts to force it back. Worse, the lights are still flickering. As the Doctor works on the lights, four Angels break off the door and enter the corridor. In the nick of time, the Doctor prevents the Angels from draining the lighting grid's power. However, he gravely announces he will have to drain the power in the corridor to get the door open — including the lights. Amy points out that they lost the torches when they jumped; this will leave them in total darkness.

They quickly enter, with the Doctor shutting the door behind them. Octavian magnetizes the door to keep the Angels out, thinking even they cannot turn the wheel now; they start doing so, but slow enough that it buys everyone time to think. Now that Octavian gets that the Angels cannot be stopped by conventional means, the Doctor begins figuring out what their resources are; River joins him in contemplating what they can do. The Doctor and River realise there must be an [[oxygen]] factory on board to supply the passengers with air. The Doctor activates a panel on the back wall, which opens to reveal a cybernetic [[forest]] within the ship. Amy continues counting down but denies doing so.

While the Doctor and River try to explain the counting to her, [[Angel Bob]] calls to find out their plans. The Doctor taunts him but grows serious when Bob tells him that they are in Amy's eye. The Angels are making her count to scare them and will take her soon. Bob gloats over gaining mastery over [[time]] and [[space]]. The Doctor informs him the ''Byzantium'' doesn't have that much power. A screeching noise is heard from outside; "Dear God! What is that!?" Bob explains, the best as it can, that the Angels are laughing because "[[The Eleventh Hour (TV story)|the Doctor in the TARDIS hasn't noticed]]".

The Doctor wonders what he has missed and turns to see [[Time Field|a huge crack]] appear on the wall of the ship; the energy the crack is giving off makes the room shake. He orders the others to run while he looks at it. Though Amy is reluctant, River pulls her away, knowing the Doctor will catch up. A scan from the sonic tells the Doctor that the crack is "extremely very not good." When the Doctor turns to follow, he is surrounded by the Angels. He quickly scans the entire room, maneuvering over the equipment to block the Angels. However, right before he can enter the forest and lose them, an Angel catches the Doctor by his jacket.

The Weeping Angels do not kill him immediately, confusing the Doctor. He turns around to see them facing the crack, arms raised. Wiggling to get free of the grip of the Angel holding him by his jacket, the Doctor tells them that the light coming out of the crack is pure [[time]] energy; it is not power, but "the fire at the [[End of the Universe|end of the universe]]." As the entire group looks at the crack, the Doctor runs off into the forest without his jacket, telling them, "Another thing, never let me talk"; he got out of his coat while they were distracted.

River opens the door and steps inside while Octavian waits with the Doctor. The Doctor deduces to his own surprise that time can be unwritten; Octavian tells him to hurry inside because of the Angels. ''"There's more dangerous things here then Angels."'' the Doctor retorts. The lights go out. When they return, Octavian is trapped in an Angel's stranglehold. Knowing the Doctor cannot save him, Octavian tells him River is in prison for murder and he shouldn't trust her. As the Doctor flees, Octavian's neck is snapped. River tries to get a [[teleport]] working as the Doctor explains the cracks. When she challenges his ideas, he responds with growing rage and tells her the teleport is useless.

Amy huddles alone in the forest, blind and with nothing but the communicator. The Doctor contacts her; Amy must make her way to the flight deck. The Angels can only kill her, but the crack can erase her from time. He sends software to the communicator to guide her. Terrified, she slowly makes her way across the forest, soon surrounded by the army of Weeping Angels fleeing from the crack. In their own terror, they do not realise her eyes are closed and their defence mechanisms kick in. They figure it out, though, when Amy trips over a root on the ground. They slowly remove the statue guise and move in to kill her.

Just as an Angel reaches towards Amy, River thankfully gets the teleport working and transports her to the flight deck. The Doctor tells River he could kiss her out of happiness, but River tells him to wait until he's older. An alarm goes off, confusing River. The Doctor says its warning the ship is low on power, which means the flight deck will open.

[[File:Angel Bob.jpg|thumb|"Bob" tries to get the Doctor to sacrifice himself to close the crack.]]The wall lifts up, revealing the Weeping Angels all snarling at them, except for Angel Bob; "Bob" explains the crack will destroy their reality if left unchecked. The Angels have calculated the crack will close if the Doctor throws himself into it. When asked why he should help the Angels, "Bob" tells him it will save River and Amy as well. River, as a time traveller, wants to take the Doctor's place, but he laughs — she is not even as complicated as one Angel and it would take all of them to equal him. He tells her to get a grip. River continues to protest, but the Doctor tells her to seriously get a grip.

River [[deduce]]s his "genius" plan and has Amy grab onto the console, warning her not to let go. Angel Bob repeats his request for the Doctor to sacrifice himself, but the Doctor reminds them that they've been draining all of the power on the ship, including that of the artificial gravity; with the words "Night-night", the Doctor grabs onto the console and the ship's gravity fails. The planet's gravity field takes over in its place, sending the Angels plummeting into the crack while the Doctor watches in delight. The [[Time Field|crack]] glows brighter and closes.
