I finally got around to sharing this on twitter so I figured I’d repost this here.
Season 4, Episode 2 -
Noelle + Frank were engaged. Noelle gave a speech about having lots of lonely nights before finding someone who takes your socks off when you fall asleep on the couch. Sam/Andy stared at each other through the whole speech. It was about them. It made them think of each other. Foreshadowing.
"Thank God for my biological clock." Foreshadowing.
And then there was the case. Andy’s first case back, a bank robbery. There was a fake baby. Andy fell for it—
when Sam asked, she said “As soon as I saw the baby, I didn’t think of anything else” Foreshadowing.
The baby was fake. Marlo pointed it out. Marlo held the fake baby.
And then Sam said: “Maybe we can get ident to lift the prints and find out who’s the daddy.”
Well, the baby was fake. A distraction. And Andy fell for it, didn’t think of anything else. Marlo knew the baby was a fake, Sam was ready to find out who the daddy is…jeez, sounds a bit familiar.
All I’m gonna say is, the main thing— the baby was fake. THE BABY WAS A DISTRACTION. Foreshadowing.
