I think George always expected something like this to eventually happen. At the same time he always knew their farm dream would never happen. Lennie is not made of the stuff of dreams. Lennie cannot understand cause and effect. George always knew the two of them were living on borrowed time. That kind of time was not enough to include any kind of dream.
