|Subtext Becomes Text|
The subtext of a situation is suddenly made very obvious.
This is when there's significant subtext to a situation (i.e., characters talking about one thing but really talking about something else) when suddenly something happens that makes it extremely obvious what the situation is actually about (i.e., a character in the previous example says something that can only apply to the thing that they're really talking about). Named after a quote from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Also, I feel like this might be a trope already, but I couldn't find it anywhere. Feel free to say so if that's the case.
