Just rewatched part 6 again in anticipation of the new episode later on tonight and... well... I noticed something a little odd about the sandwich scene with "Dougie" and Janey.  Check it out.  This screenshot was taken at the 4 mins 40 mark

Notice any difference?  I doubt it.  The scene is bookended by exactly the same shot.  

Recycling footage in this way is extremely unusual and seems to me to be yet another subtle hint that this world that Coop finds himself in is not quite as real as it seems.  Thoughts?

Yeah I noticed something weird about this part. Mainly because the second shot of her biting the sandwich at the end of the scene shows her biting an as yet uneaten sandwich, even though she's been eating through the whole scene.

Upon rewatching I feel like she just finishes the first sandwich and then starts a new one. But I agree that there is something a bit weird and 'manufactured' about seeing the same shot twice.

It's not just that the bite is duplicated.  The disapproving look she gives Dougie (as seen in the screenshot(s) above) is present in both shots.  She is looking over at the bottom of the stairs to her right.  When the scene begins with this shot, she is looking over at the other side of the room where the stairs are, yet Dougie is sitting right beside her at the table.
