Do you think there is relevance behind there being so many quotes and instances of things hiding in things in season 4? For instance: TST: "Like hiding a tree in a forest" "or blood in a butchers" and then there is the stick drive in the bust. TLD: "You don't build a beach if you want to hide a pebble, you just find a beach" "You want to hide a murder...just find a hospital" and the microphone in John's walking stick.
You know, I never noticed this trend of metaphors and similes and “hiding” until you mentioned it? Mainly because I haven’t watched S4 nearly as much as the rest of the series and don’t have it almost memorized line-for-line. I really don’t know what it could be; Tinhat me is saying that it’s a clue to “hiding in plain site”, as in the real story is hiding in plain site, behind something bigger and more complex. Skeptical me is just saying that Mofftiss liked the use of metaphors in the past, and now they’re just throwing them in to sound clever into a series we’re supposed to take seriously.
Hmm. This is one I might need to ponder on a bit more. Anyone have any thoughts on this? I’m no English major by any means, but I know that metaphors and similes are usually used when trying to convey something deeper. *shrugs*
