I have a more or less finished outline I plan to post soon for some critiquing (a prospect that terrifies me), but one plot point is bugging me. I'll be as brief as I can, but I promise, the full setup for this is far better thought out than the following synopsis. A couple wakes up with no memory. According to a video they left, they injected themselves with an amnesia drug after an extremely personal loss during the recent viral apocalypse. There's an empty nursery, so they can assume they lost a baby. During the course of the story, the wife uncovers clues that the husband is either regaining his memory or never lost it in the first place. It's sort of a deserted island love story that turns into a thriller. I have two decent but admittedly pedestrian examples, and one I just don't like. The track switches on the record they're playing, and he accidentally blurts out, "I love this song." They decide rather hopefully that their memories might be coming back. Later she catches him mouthing the words to a scene in a movie he shouldn't remember. I think these are fine. It makes sense to me because either is a mistake one might make out of sheer habit. I won't mention the other because it's boring. I need a third, more concrete event or line of dialog, something more interesting, maybe even frightening. there's physical evidence later on, so I'm not looking for her to find something. I'm open to any ideas, of course, but I want him to actually slip up. I don't know why I'm so blocked on this. Maybe you guys can help. Thanks.
