Unexpected constitutes time, i.e., creates the necessity of time.
The unexpected, when placed within a reconstructed past, is a determined event - in so far as the unexpected can be perceived like an event ; but since this past was reconstructed from the perspective of the emergent event, the emergent event is also a determining event. The unexpected itself indicates the continuities within which the event may be viewed as continuous. There is, then, no question of predicting the emergent, for it is, by definition and also experientially, unpredictable; but once the emergent appears in experience, it may be placed within a continuity dictated by its own character.
As soon as unexpected and emergent event are identified, then determination of the emergent is retrospective determination.
