Summary: Sometimes River Song does give spoilers.
Canton stands on the sidewalk, smiling, if somewhat wistfully.
He’d figured out early in life that he was going to have to work very hard at hiding who he was to get along in this world. It took River Song less than five minutes to see through him.
During a rare quiet moment between chases, she’d told him that someday people like them wouldn’t have to hide in the shadows. He’d found it hard to believe then, but here he is watching a gay pride parade on the streets of Phoenix, Arizona.
Too bad Sam can’t be here with him.
