Wikipedia wrote:A flashforward (also spelled flash-forward; also called a prolepsis) is a scene that temporarily takes the narrative forward in time from the current point of the story in literature, film, television and other media.[1] Flashforwards are often used to represent events expected, projected, or imagined to occur in the future. They may also reveal significant parts of the story that have not yet occurred, but soon will in greater detail. It is similar to foreshadowing, in which future events are not shown but rather implicitly hinted at. It is primarily a postmodern narrative device, named by analogy to the more traditional flashback (or analepsis), which reveals events that occurred in the past.

Wikipédia wrote:Prolepse, do grego prólepsis "ação de tomar antes", ou "flashforward", numa linguagem mais cinematográfica, é figura também conhecida como antecipação, é uma figura de sintaxe onde ocorre o deslocamento de um termo de uma oração para outra que a precede, com o que adquire excepcional valor. Ao contrário de Analepse, a prolepse é um recurso narrativo através do qual se pode descrever o futuro; um acto futuro; prever o futuro, etc.
