Weeks before Bennifer 2.0 was even a possibility, the producers at Jeopardy! seemingly manifested Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's reunion into reality — at least as far as the internet is concerned.

On Friday night's episode — which was filmed in advance of airing — the first clue of the show read, "As a couple they were jointly known as 'Bennifer.'" The answer: J.Lo and Ben Affleck. Mystified by how the show could have possibly predicted the timeliness of the clue, people shared their theories on Twitter.

The collective conclusion? The Jeopardy! writers can see into the future.

What's more is that during Double Jeopardy, there was an entire category dedicated to the state of Montana, where J.Lo and Ben went on a reported romantic getaway together. And while the friendly exes have yet to confirm whether or not they're officially a couple again, they've allegedly been talking "every day" since the trip.

"[Jennifer] is in touch with Ben every day," a source told People. "They are making plans to see each other. Jennifer is still very excited about how things are going with Ben."

The vacation was reportedly Affleck's idea, and the two "had a great time."
