S47E6 – Foreshadowing Through a Character’s Descent into Madness

One of the ways you can foreshadow is through the use of an unreliable narrator, specifically one who is descending into madness. Throughout the first part of the story, anything odd can be explained away. Slowly, it is revealed those oddities were foreshadowing, hinting at some plot twist on which the whole narrative hinges.

Hosts Leigh and Ley discuss ways to carry out this kind of storytelling and share examples where it was done well.
