A clue or allusion embedded in the narrative that predicts some later event or revelation. It could be a wayward comment or action, an event that doesn’t make sense until later, a meaningful name, a rare blood type… so many things can warn us of the future. Good foreshadowing doesn’t spoil the surprise, yet seems an obvious clue in retrospect.
I just watched the Elementary finale. I was all convinced that I was spoiled because I saw the line “Irene was fucking Moriarty”.
Thank you, ambiguous ‘fucking’. You gave me quite the surprise.
