''[[DissonantSerenity ''[[OminousAdversarialAmusement Excellent.]]'' Everything is going according to plan.



Compare GambitRoulette where ''even probability itself'' goes all according to plan.



At the same time, watch out for the SpannerInTheWorks. They're notorious for popping up [[TemptingFate right when something like this gets said]].

When it's too late for the SpannerInTheWorks to do anything, and the whole plan gets explained, then the trope is CheckAndMate.

** Previously, [[spoiler:Doc Scratch]] managed to pull a version of this on ''the entire cast'', with the event that went as planned being [[spoiler:'''the entirety of Acts 1 through 5'''. It's only after his own death that the full machinations of Doc Scratch are finally revealed; in fact, [[MyDeathIsOnlyTheBeginning it's Doc Scratch's death that allows his master,]] [[EldritchAbomination Lord]] [[BigBad English]], to finally make his appearance.]] It's his [[FamousLastWords final line]] that really sells it:

* In ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', Ursula the sea witch, transformed into the human woman "Vanessa," sings "''What a lovely little bride I'll make / My dear, I'll look divine / Everything is working out according to my ultimate design.''" This, however, is actually something of a subversion in that Ursula is experiencing a SanitySlippage because her original plan ''isn't'' working out. She had thought that she could just take Ariel's voice and this would be enough to keep her from ever getting Prince Eric to give her the [[TrueLovesKiss kiss of true love]]. After a near-miss only just stopped by her eel henchmen, she hastily concocted this plan to put Prince Eric under her spell and marry him herself.
