  • Speak: Melinda becomes attached to a poster of Maya Angelou as a subtle piece of foreshadowing. Maya was raped as a young girl. It's also a stealth reference to Angelou's autobiographical novel that informed the title of Speak, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings with the line:
    "I thought, my voice killed him; I killed that man, because I told his name. And then I thought I would never speak again, because my voice would kill anyone."
