" Little did she know then, that down the line, she would get to relive the moment. "

Kindly tell me if the phrase 'down the line' correct in the above sentence if I want to mean that the person doing certain activity was not certain that he would again be doing the same activity in different setting.

    Yes, it works. “Down the line” means at a later date, at some time in the future.

    But it doesn’t mean she wasn’t certain — it means she had no idea that that would happen in the future.

    "Little did she know" really means "She didn't know at all".

    The way it's written might sound like she knew it a little bit, but that's not what it really means.

    "She had no idea that in the future she would get to relive the moment."
