[[WMG: In the novel, the picture window never breaks.]]
The window that has all the FauxShadowing towards being broken survives [[spoiler: the boiler explosion]]. It is shielded from shattering by a miraculous confluence of events and a heavily faulty frame, and the pane itself ends up slicing into a dense snow drift some ways away completely undamaged.
[[WMG: The Overlook Hotel is an entity like Film/FourteenOhEight...]]
... only all grown up.
[[WMG: Ulman and Watson knew the Overlook was haunted.]]
The way they talked to Jack about it was like they were hiding something. Scandals are one thing, but they seemed frightened by what they are hiding.
[[WMG: Ulman not only knows about the hauntings, he has made a deal with the entity and all it's ghostly representations.]]
He feeds it souls and psychic energy and they don't bother his guests for the summer season, save fore a few glimpses. Why else would the hotel be somewhat normal in the summer, but [[BringMeMyBrownPants piss your pants scary]] in the winter?
