When is a pattern just a pattern?
Forget the Observer in the top left for a moment. Notice how the cars along the bottom are positioned in a ‘staggered arrangement’? I can’t help but wonder whether this staggered pattern, which has appeared in prominent shots throughout the series, is part of some kind of code – a means of communicating extra morsels to those paying attention to the small details? Or, is it just sheer coincidence?
The logical part of me says that it’s coincidence; “move along, nothing to see here”. But then I hear ‘the powers that be’ say that everything in the show is there for a reason.
I think I’ll store this one in my ‘pattern-vault’ for another day.
