In Casino Royale there is a scene during the poker game when Bond and Vesper go to their room during a pause. On their way Bond fetches an envelope from the reception (that I guess he deposited there earlier) containing his gun and then in the elevator asks Vesper to open it and take out the gun. When exiting the elevator they hear screams from Le Chiffre's room (who is visited by his angry African clients) and Bond engages the danger.
But my question is, why did Bond take out the gun from the envelope in the first place, since at this point he didn't know there is danger ahead? He could have just done it in his room or not fetch/deposit the envelope at all.
- Am I just overinterpreting this and he just took it out as a matter of security?
- Was he actually anticipating the upcoming danger or knew that Le Chiffre got unwelcome visitors?
- Did he actually plan something serious I have overseen, like capturing Le Chiffre or at least searching his room or something the like?
- Or was this plot device of fetching the envelope and drawing out the gun just not thought out that well?
