  My two cent´s worth.


  It was pretty clear he had no money and was giving us lame excuses there.



  a)- He got involved in a car crash.

  b)- That (or IT) was meant to happen (also meaning it would happen anyway), didn´t you realize he likes speeding up all the time?




    I knew my son had stolen the money, the guilt was written all over his face.

  It wasn´t surprise to anyone. [meaning: Everyone knew it would happen]

  "It wasn´t surprise to anyone that soccer player was going to leave Flamengo!"



   It was obvious, right from the start, a lioness and a gazelle don´t live togheter.



   As you can see, they is a variety of "tá na cara", that is, depends on context.
