Totally, right? That's a lot of what I like about comics and long-form content, is that you can go back a bunch of issues or episodes or what-have-you and say "oh God, that character has no idea what's coming in 500 pages."
Context and narrative scale are all really interesting when a story is being told over a long period of time.
