Wes Craven's New Nightmare

Heather Lagenkamp's whole world slowly changes into that of Nancy from the Elm Street films. She follows her son into Freddy's world where after a battle she finally defeats him. At the end she reads Wes Craven's script for his new film, and it is indeed all the events she has just went through. Craven has signed the script "thanks for playing nancy one last time".

Question: It is said that in the original script, Julie the babysitter was meant to be Freddy's pawn, and even though they removed that part, there are still elements in the film that point fingers at her. What are some of these elements?

Chosen answer: Mostly just very subtle hints. In the beginning when she arrives right around the same time that Heather gets a call from the psycho-stalker, suggesting a possible connection. And the fact she's alone with Dylan many times during the film, as she could be subtly manipulating him to act out.
