'Doctor Who' series 7.5 spoiler: Who returns, Who dies?

'Doctor Who' season 7.5 spoiler: Who returns, who dies?

While visiting Los Angeles, a very reliable source revealed a major spoiler from the upcoming second half of Doctor Whoseason seven - and it's one that will make Whovians geek out.

To discover, read ahead, but beware - 'thar be spoilers here...

In an episode featuring the children-eating alien race 456 (pronounced four-five-six, and last seen on Torchwood's Children of Earth), the buggers come back and get into a scrap with the 11th Doctor and ... Captain Jack Harkness!

In their first on-screen team-up, Matt Smith's Doctor and John Barrowman will face the aliens in a showdown that very well might lead to Harkness' final death.

Although the plot specifics are still a mystery, apparently 456 finds a way to put a limit on Harkness' resurrections and will kill him until the cool cat has no more lives.

What happens then? Will Capt. Jack be dead-dead? Apparently the captain asks that question himself and the alien's reply?

"Spoilers" (Which - coincidentally? - happens to be River Song's catchphrase)

Considering Stephen Moffat's apparent joy in killing characters and torturing fans (and I say that in love), it would not be shocking to see him bump off Harkness. Also, it is about time for Barrowman to appear alongside Smith since both Ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston and Tenth Doctor David Tennant have adventured with the former Time Agent.

When we last saw Captain Jack, he had regained his immortality after the events of Miracle Day. And the three-headed insectoid 456 (named for the frequency they use to communicate with humans) is a perfect nemesis for Harkness. He has a long history with the aliens, and they were eventually defeated by the Torchwood leader, but only because he sacrificed his own grandson to do so - after they killed his romantic interest Ianto Jones (Gareth David-Lloyd).

In a way, the 456 are Harkness' Daleks. I predict that Jack will have to die in order to save the good Doctor, which is kind of a recurring theme between the two time travelers. And while I couldn't find out when in the second half of season seven this will occur, it sounds like a great finale, don't you think?

And...React! Happy to see Jack back? Are you excited to see him team up with Matt Smith? Think Moffat will really kill him off?
