If you’re concerned about “revealing too much too soon”, it’s best to be vague about showing potentially spoiler info. Eg. you can show (Dustin leaving the scene) instead of what you showed, as that leaves more room for audience speculation.

However, this doesn’t mean you were “wrong” to show what you did, as you may indeed have a good reason to show that, which I currently don’t know about. Rather, treat this simply as a guideline for future episodes 🙂

Example from STM: There are at least 3 possible major reasons for Kent’s silence, all of which are extremely feasible, enough for me to make a Poll. If you can achieve that level of vagueness, you are more likely to retain your audience’s curiosity.
