About this deal

Present perfect continuous is used when a situation isn't over yet, that's why I can't get it. Doesn't the expecting end after his arrival? We simply didn't know when to expect you. First it was teatime yesterday, and then dinner, and it was only half an hour ago that we really knew you were on your way."

Master Splinter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles usually plays this role in all incarnations of the show, as he is very wise and skilled. And a ninja, of course.

In Diamonds Are Forever, Bond drops into Willard Whyte's penthouse suite and, having been observed by Blofeld, is greeted by Willard Whyte (actually Blofeld with a disguised voice) with the words, 'Howdy. Welcome, son. We've been expecting you'. In The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug this trope is subverted. Bilbo uses the ring to disappear and he stumbles onto the chambers of Legolas's father, Thranduil. Thranduil subverts this trope, asking why he is hiding in the shadows, and stating that he can come out now. However, Bilbo finds out that Thranduil is not speaking to him after all, but to Tauriel who had also been lingering in the shadows.

Cary Fukunaga prepares to premiere his film. The director took over from Danny Boyle, who jumped ship shortly before shooting began, citing ‘creative differences’. Communication has Lynette, Captain of the First Aerial Company, who is able to predict any plan and formation enemy airships take on and appropriately come up with an counter against them. Trespassing to Talk: A character breaks into another's home and waits to confront them when they arrive. Sometimes, in a tragic-dramatic twist of fate, the Anticipator will be waiting for their opponent calmly and patiently after uttering one of the above phrases, because there's Nothing Left to Do but Die. If they are tired of fighting, then they may enjoy One Last Smoke before the big showdown. One episode of Babylon 5 had Delenn being questioned by an inquisitor to determine her worthiness using harsh methods. When he hears the door open he says, without looking, "And the third player in our little drama arrives at last," implying he knew it was Sheridan and that he'd been expecting him to show up eventually.Lola Iolani Momoa, Jason Momoa and Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa attend the premiere. Momoa is shooting a new Aquaman film in the UK. Ben Whishaw on the red carpet. The actor plays Q in the film and has suggested it will also be his final time in the franchise. Rumpelstiltskin does this in the Pilot of Once Upon a Time: When Prince Charming and Snow White go to consult him, they are warned to do three things: 1) Stay out of the light, 2) keep their faces hidden, and 3) not mention their names. All three turn out to be useless, as Rumpelstiltskin not only knows who they are, but has been waiting for them to show up. Justified because he A) can see the future and B) has been planning for this moment for years. In Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake Emily Griffin is waiting for Nancy to solve a puzzle so she can trap Nancy. She even tries to club her to death with a bone of all things! Nelly Malek and her son, the actor Rami Malek, prepare to watch the film. Malek plays the chief Bond villain in No Time to Die.
