i'm a dead sloth who pretends to have friends and social life. also known as the queen of procrastination.
Clara places such unwavering faith in the Doctor.
Even her line in this week’s episode to Danny, something along the lines of “I trust him with my life” audibly confirms what we’ve seen in action. She trusts that he knows best and doesn’t wander off. She does exactly as told without hesitation even though it means facing a giant robot capable of destroying the entire planet. The Doctor literally leaves her stranded with a flesh-harvesting android after changing his face, but she trusts that he hasn’t truly abandoned her. She even sacrifices herself to save the Doctor, knowing that his presence in the universe makes it a better place.
She has also always been there for him. She is scattered across his time stream and has saved his life more times than he is even aware of. She convinced the Time Lords to grant him more regenerations, ensuring that he could live on past Trenzalore. She encouraged him as a child to face his fear and to be brave, a message that shaped him into the man capable of stealing a TARDIS to steal the universe. When he needs help fixing a malfunctioning Dalek, tracking down a new creature, or robbing the most secure bank in the universe, he knows exactly who to turn to.
So basically, I’m about 80% sure that some day soon, the Doctor is going to need Clara to do something dangerous and terribly important, because he trusts her so completely. And Clara is going to do it, because she trusts the Doctor to keep her safe. And something is going to go horribly wrong.
No one wants it to happen. I myself am dreading it. But narratively, it’s the best possible direction to go either to end this season or during the Christmas special.
tl;dr - Clara Oswald is probably going to die a horrible death.
