see it coming
To realize that something is approaching or is about to happen, usually but not always something bad. Can refer to both literal sight and foresight. I can't believe Vanessa broke up with me. I never saw it coming. I think he'll be able to make the catch if he sees it coming. I knew what the punchline was going to be as soon as he started the joke. I could see it coming a mile away.
