I sat down thinking that this was going to be a two parter.

it wasn't that he couldn't go back to new york, it's that he couldn't go back to 1938.

Although, was that 1938 completely, or 1938 New York?

And it wasn't that he couldn't go back, because he could go back to 1930 and wait around for 5 years, or land in Australia and take a boat over to the States... it's that the fabric of time space had been so indelibly weakened right there, that if that headstone in the present changed again (which is did when Amy went back) it would create a new paradox on top of the bomb-site of the first which would destroy the world.
