Choosing the Title

 

Coming up with a title for Contingency was a challenge, but when it clicked, it fit the story perfectly. The dictionary defines it as a possibility, an event that isn't entirely unforeseen. Phil Shannon explains to Chuck, “An extramarital affair was a contingency you never considered, so there was no protection in your marriage against it. I want us to fix that.” 
 
Bobbi and Chuck had a whirlwind courtship, married after three years apart, and quickly settled into separate lives. They never took the opportunity to build emotional intimacy. Bobbi hints at it a few times in the flashback scenes, but neither of them took action. So rather than purposefully deepening their relationship in the early years of their marriage, they did it the hard way- in their pastor's office after the pain of infidelity.
